How much one can change over time – Before and After Pictures of Some of Nigeria’s Biggest Celebrities (PHOTOS)


Growth is a natural phenomenon. As a child is born, he/she passes through several stages in life and eventually becomes a full grown adult. Our Nigerian celebrities aren’t exempted from the growth circle.

They didn’t fall from the sky; they are human just like everyone else. If pictures from their past are anything to go buy, we can say that they have evolved over the years and made something for themselves.

You’ll be surprised at contrast in the before and after pictures of some of Nigeria’s biggest celebrities.

  1. 2Baba


Formally known as 2Face, the Grass to Grace Story of the handsome Singer is an inspiration to many people. Born Innocent Ujah Idibia, 2Baba is one of the most successful and popular Musicians on the African continent.

A former member of the deduct boy group Plantashun Boys, the husband and father is so successful now he looks nothing like his old pictures. He is one of the few celebrities who are known for their humility. 2Baba shot to super stardom upon the release of his evergreen song “African Queen.”

  1. P-Square


Times have changed and Nigerian twin Musicians P-Square obviously changed with the times. Born Peter and Paul Okoye, the duo gave music lovers reasons to smile when they made their debut into the Nigerian music scene with good musical and dancing skills.

Having worked under their own label Square Records for a while, the “Busy Body” crooners signed a deal with Konvict Records owned by Akon in 2011. They have since moved on and signed other mouth watering deals. From their old pictures, it’s obvious they have come a long way and are doing well for themselves.
