“We sabi Oyinbo tins pass Oyinbo” - 2Baba raises concerns over ‘Open Eye’ Syndrome


Veteran music superstar and club owner, Innocent 2Baba Idibia has raised concerns over the excessive ‘Open Eye’ syndrome of Nigerians.


2Baba expressed his concerns over the excessive ‘Open Eye’ syndrome of Nigerians via his Twitter account on the 3rd of November 2020. According to the music veteran, he described the vernacular expression ‘Open Eye’ as the ability of a Nigerian to properly understand and live life like a white man. In his words:

"ÒPEN ĚYE" in pidgin English mean say u sabi oyibo thing and u dey live oyibo life.

He expressed the negative impacts of the Whiteman-wannabe-syndrome and how it has redefined our priorities individually and collectively by making us slaves mentally to our colonial masters, even though we have independence as a nation. 2Baba expressed:

"ÒPEN ĚYE" don wound us plenty.
E make us think say London or yanky accent na intelligence. E make us think say our things na inferior. E make generally no like ourselves.

We sabi oyibo tins pass oyibo.
African leaders don give up. Them no get ideas again . Them just dey too proud to ask for young people to take over and help because them don shit for church too much.
Every race is racist to black people.

2Baba further expressed what he believes to be the liberation for Africans to emancipate themselves from mental slavery and the Whiteman-wannabe-syndrome, “Open Eye”. He tweeted:

Until we get our own EDUCATION system plus our MEDIA system plus our AFRICAN POLICY system plus our RESOURCE CONTROL system plus our UNIFIED DEFENCE system
We will never be independent and in control of African development.

Is a serious problem for people who have wronged Africa and people who wish to continue 2 RAPE Africa.
But AFRICA is so blessed that we don't want revenge.
We just want to live in peace.
Enough things for all.
