Top Nigerian singer, 2face Idibia, has taken up a new reponsibility. He is now a Red cross ambassador. On Friday 4th July 2014, the Red Cross Society of Nigeria honoured the pop star at a press conference to announce a partnership between 2Face Idibia’s Million Voices for Peace campaign and the Red Cross Society of Nigeria.
The partnership with the Red Cross Society of Nigeria seeks to explore areas of collaboration in raising awareness on the needs of people affected by violence in Nigeria with the aim of mobilizing support for them.
Through this initiative, 2Face Idibia joins a list of renowned celebrities who have shown commitment in speaking up for some of the world’s most vulnerable groups.
2face Idibia speaking at the event said: “Today we take a big step in improvising the plight of internally displaced persons in Nigeria through our partnership with the Nigerian Red Cross Society. My colleagues and I have followed closely the humanitarian efforts of the Red Cross society and I must confess that we are inspired and excited at the chance to support this cause.”
A few months back, a track titled – Break the silence, was released by the Million Voices for Peace campaign. Proceeds from the sale of the song will go towards supporting the work of the Red Cross Society of Nigeria.
