It's all about unifying the Liberian artists, putting LIB on the map, and giving back to Liberia for 27 year old Romeo Mulbah who has been out of the country for nearly two decades.
After being away for so long, Liberia’s very own international artist Romeo Mulbah, aka 2C, based in the USA, is back in Liberia to host a united Liberian artists concert and video release at The Sky Bar on 10th street Sinkor on May 31st. According to he artist, he will also be shooting two videos while he’s here in Liberia, for his songs "Hero" and "My Jue", which features some great Liberian artists like K-Zee, Queen V, and Cypha D’King. “I’m extremely excited to be coming home. As Liberian artists, a lot of hard work has been put in perfecting our craft as performers and being known on the world scene,” he told LIB Life. But in as much as the artist is excited to be home and is looking forward to a great show, he also expressed his concerns and regrets as to how Liberian artist are recognized and treated by their own Liberians compared to foreign artists.
“As hard as we the artist work to put LIB on the map in the music world, I hear from a lot of Liberian artist that we don’t get the respect or are not treated fairly like other nationalities. Much respect to Wiz Kid, Timaya and others for the work that they have put in they deserve to be headlining concerts. It feels good to see pictures of these huge shows in Liberia, but there are Liberians out there and locally that are just as good that can share the stage or headline eventually.”
Nevertheless, the artist is still hopeful that his interaction with fellow Liberian artists and fans will make a difference and show that Liberians can also share the stage and headline.
Meanwhile 2C has been on stages with known artists such as American Rapper Flo Rida, and has also been on a live television at BET performing his hit song Liberian Girl, in which he added an international twist to that of the dirty South sound. 2C is famous for songs including Liberian Girl, International girl, Fly Away, Coming Home, My Jue and many more.
He lived in New Orleans for a while before moving to metro Atlanta. He decided on the moniker 2C, which means Too Crazy, "not mentally ill but crazy about the music because I love it," he says. Meanwhile Mulbah has performed at various Liberian events around metro Atlanta, in Washington and Philadelphia.
"We're trying to put our country on the map," he said. "Liberia is like a mother, but when the war started, everyone moved. Now she's all over the world."
The Liberian star will be in Liberia for the next three weeks, doing live performances, visiting family members and shooting new videos. He will later travel to Minnesota, USA to do a show with Ghanaian artist Ruff N Smooth to perform their hot new single title “I Wanna Be” and also record a music video for the song.
Making sure to pay a courtesy call at the Daily Observer, this "Too Crazy" artist told LIB Life that the Liberian people should expect a highly energetic performance, free CDs and a new video release. “Its like me giving back to my fans cause I miss them so much its been a long time I haven’t returned to the Motherland and I’m here LIB, Bong County, one hundred percent Liberian, Kpelleh man that’s me, my people your hello oh,” he exclaims in classic Liberian colloquialism.
"My music makes you move”, he says.
