Yvonne Jegede Recreates Iconic Look On 2baba’s “African Queen” Music Video

Yvonne Jegede has sent her fan base into frenzy including her colleagues in the entertainment industry following her most recent Instagram post.

The Nollywood actress recreated the exact way she appeared on 2face Idibia’s most-popular song of all time, “African Queen,” music video.

‘African Queen’ was one of the tracks off 2baba’s 2004 album, ‘Face 2 Face’. The album became a major hit initially in Nigeria and sold over 2 million copies, but quickly spreading through western and southern African, and eventually making an impact in Europe as well.

All thanks to it’s lead single ‘African Queen’, a guitar ballad with elements of West African folk music and hip hop.

A lot of us heard the name Yvonne Jegede for the first time 16 years ago following her appearance as one of the video vixens in the music video. She appeared alongside 2baba’s wife, Annie Idibia in the video which was released in 2014.

In celebration of her milestone in the entertainment industry, Yvonne Jegede decided to recreate her African-inspired look from the flick.

Describing her look in the new photos shared on Instagram, the 36-year-old said it’s the “same girl, same dress” but a different guitar because she could not get the exact one used in the music video.
