According to the sources, 2baba wrote the song in retaliation for Obi’s rudeness. A few years after the rumour first surfaced, 2Baba refuted it in an interview with Brila FM in 2016.

He stated that the song was never a diss tune or about Mikel and that such an incident never occurred.

Mikel never directly addressed the rumours until recently, when a curious fan asked him about it.

The professional footballer went on to say that he never snubbed 2Baba at a London club. He said he was a huge fan of the singer and would never have done such a thing.

The Chelsea star shared a video of him relaxing at home and listening to the Late South African legend Brenda Fassie’s song.

In his caption, he wrote:

“When the music hits hard and you can’t get enough, Have a goodSunday,y my people.”

Reacting to the video, an Instagram user identified as xfranky22 asked the ex-football star about the old viral reports, saying:

“Did you truly snub 2face at a club in London back in 2006?”

Mikel debunked the rumour, saying:

“No, I never did. Am a big fan of his. So I wouldn’t do such a thing. Have a lovely day.”
