This was where he studied for a National Diploma in Business Administration and management.
While in school, he used to organize events and parties both within and outside school.
He used to also host different shows in schools like the Enugu State University, and also the University of Nigeria, Nsukka.
It was actually during this period that he began to compose and sing songs.

2face Music Career
2face really kick-started his music career when he relocated to Lagos State and began to perform with Blackface.

They actually managed to release a total of two studio albums as a group.
The first was released in 2000, and it was titled Body And Soul, while the other called ‘Sold Out’ was released in 2003.
These albums were all released under Dove Records owned by Nelson Brown.
The album titled ‘Sold Out’ was a major success.
However, the group disbanded barely a year after its release.

After a very long beef between 2face and Faze, the Plantashun Boiz music group came back together.
This was actually back in 2007.
The same year, they released their final album together after which they all parted ways.
The album was titled ‘Plan B’.
Over the years, BlackFace has been making claims that 2face uses songs that were written by him.
