After staging what could be described as the most glamorous wedding of the year, superstar 2face Idibia and his sweet heart, Annie have settled to a honeymoon in Dubai.
The newlyweds, reportedly checked into the world’s tallest hotel, JW Mariott Marquis Dubai for their honeymoon right after the star-studded wedding

The couple who had initially lodged in the Burj Al Arab Hotel had to move to the more luxurious hotel, situated in the Business Bay area of Dubai, which is also home to the Dubai Mall, fittingly, the world’s largest shopping center.
When our reporter called 2face’s management to find out when the couple will be back, Head of Now Muzik, Efe Omorogbe, who did not deny the couple’s move to the JW Marriott Marquis Dubai said, ‘I left Dubai since Monday morning and since then, I have had little or no contact with 2face. As far as we at Now Muzik are concerned, he is on holiday and we would like to give him some space and privacy for the time being’.
The Idibias are having the time of their lives, ignoring the criticisms that trailed their lavish white wedding and the equally expensive gifts from friends like Godswill Akpabio and David Mark.
One source close to the couple says they have decided to disconnect from everyone since the wedding so as to enjoy their honeymoon with less distraction.
Only opened a few months ago, the JW Marriott Marquis Dubai Hotel is a 72-storey, 355m (1,165 ft) twin-tower skyscraper complex with 1,608 hotel rooms, run by Marriott International.
With the first tower opened, the hotel comprises 14 food and beverage outlets, rooftop bars, a business center, conference halls and meeting rooms, an extensive banquet hall, spa and health club, as well as retail outlets, a swimming pool, and a gymnasium.
From NET’s investigations, depending on the space and luxury, the room rates per night goes for as low as 1,500 United Arab Emirate Dirham (N64,000) suites, all the way up to 35,000 Dirham (N1.5m), Penthouse overlooking the skyline.
For now, it is unclear how long the newlyweds will stay in the luxurious hotel, but they could well be spending a fortune putting up in one of the luxurious suites and shopping for some of the nicest things.
Meanwhile, there are strong indications the newly married Mrs Idibia may already be pregnant with her second child and 2face’s seventh. We could not immediately confirm this.
2face and Annie got joined together in holy matrimony at the Jumeirah Beach Resort in Dubai on March 23, in front of dozens of family members and celebrities.
