2Face Idibia Laments Having Children From Different Women

Published

on

Nigeria music star, Innocent Ujah Idibia, aka Tuface has expressed his displeasure at having children from multiple women.

The talented musician described the issue as one he would not like to discuss.

“It is really tough to talk about it.  Honestly, when I look back and  examine that  aspect of my life, I wish it never happened. I wish all my kids came from one woman.  I love my children and there is nothing I can do to change the situation . I have moved on and I am married to one of the women who bore me kids. I no longer dwell on that issue.”

His relationship with his children. 

“I am not the strict type because I have a soft spot for kids. As such,  my children always get away with so many things when I am around. Their mothers are the ones who  discipline them. I pamper my kids,’’ he tells with delight in his voice.

Does it seem likely that any of his children would follow in his footsteps? He affirms this and adds that some of them are already exhibiting  signs of taking up music as a career and rather than dissuade them, he is prepared to give them the encouragement they need to succeed.

When he is not making melodious music, the international act always takes a break from his hectic schedule to relax. For him, this comes in different forms he quips.

“Sometimes, I could just sleep but most times, I like to hang out with my friends. We laugh, gist, crack jokes and generally have fun,’’ he says.

Commenting on the motivators in his life, Tuface says that one of the things he strongly believes in is the fact that the sky is big enough for everyone to fly as there is adequate space. He continues:

“It is just like the millions of stars that you see in the sky at night. Notwithstanding their number, there would still be space for more stars to shine. That is life and nature at work, so there is space for all of us.  I always say that nobody should think that he or she is luckier than everyone else in life because that is a farce. As an individual, do not think that there is no space for the next person to thrive. For me, that is how I see life.’’

Even though he dropped out of school many years ago, he reiterates that in spite of his itinerary as an international musician, he looks forward to a time when he would be able to go back to earn a university degree. In a pitch that shows sincerity,  he says,

“Maybe I’d give it a thought once again. I am going to keep trying and I would never give up on education.’’

His role models he says must not necessarily be musicians. He argues,

“They are people from different professions and surprisingly  music is not one of them . I look up to many people and I do so for countless reasons.”

Still speaking, he says Senator Ben Murray-Bruce, Richard Mofe-Damijo and comedian, Ali Baba stand out for him and the reason is not farfetched. In a revealing tone, he enumerates some of the reasons why he regards them so.

“These are people who have remained on top of their game in their respective fields of endeavour and they are doing very well so I have tremendous respect for them. For instance, take a look at Ali Baba, he is a very humble man, yet he is on top of his game as a comedian and I always strive to do same,’’ he states.

Tuface is not exactly a trendsetter yet he manages to keep it simple and sharp even though he is not proficient at fashion as he is at music.  In describing his style, he keeps it brief.

“Nothing in particular determines what I wear . I just like to dress in clean clothes and also look sharp when I go out,” he explains.

He sums up his philosophy about life in just one short sentence, ‘Live and let live’ and adds that he just wants to be remembered as that guy that came to the world to do his thing and also allowed others do their own thing, all in the spirit of one love.

Having weathered several storms in his career, Tuface has a word of advice for up-and-coming artistes.

“I just want them to know that going into music is serious business. More so, they should challenge themselves creatively and be able to explore all avenues. They must not be held back by any challenges that may come their way. When they combine all of these together, the road would be easy. On my part, I am just going to keep doing good music and keep bonding with my family. For me, I am just doing my own thing so I am not in competition with anyone. I am on my own lane and wouldn’t have it any other way,’’ he concludes.

REVEALED: How Mo Abudu And FFK’s Ex-Wife, Yemisi Wada Became Bitter Enemies

Published

on

  • Untold Story of Betrayal,treachery, backstabbing And Scam

Popular media entrepreneur, Mo Abudu, is presently in the eye of the storm.

It was exclusively revealed that the media personality has been lamenting about her loss and pains ever since the libel suit she instituted against her erstwhile friend, Yemisi Wada was thrown out of a Lagos High Court on Friday, July 12.

Yemisi Wada runs a reputable NGO, Havens Children that caters for the poor and physically challenged, while Mo Abudu runs a media-based organisation, EbonyLife TV.

Close sources disclosed that Mo Abudu was warned against instituting a law suit against Yemisi, but she allegedly refused to heed the warning.

She was even reported to have boasted that she would reduce Yemisi to a nonentity for daring to expose her as a fraud.

Mo Abudu was said to have filed the lawsuit against her former friend after she was allegedly released from the custody of the Economic Financial Crimes Commission EFCC having been reportedly arrested and questioned for misappropriation of funds, generated through “Benefit Concert” held in January 2009.

She was said to have demanded for N200million damages over the “libelous” publication against her.

According to Justice Oyekan Abdullahi, who presided over the case, the publication in question made no claims that could constitute defamation; he went further to advise both plaintiff and accused to go and settle their differences as friends.

We gathered that it was an elated Yemisi Wada that took to the social media to celebrate the outcome of the judgement in her favour.

She insisted in her post that she had obtained victory for the children, who never benefited from the supposed shelter that was to be built for them by Mo Abudu, adding that she was delighted that the children lived to see someone stand up and fight for them.

Also, Yemisi Wada was emphatic in her claim that there was never a friendship between her and Mo Abudu.

She also requested that the funds misappropriated by the EbonyLife TV boss should be retrieved and invested in giving the destitute children a befitting shelter.

Mo Abudu also took to her Instagram handle to lament about being backstabbed, “It’s not every dog that barks in the market that you answer”, she wrote.

Investigation by First Weekly Magazine revealed that the once chummy relationship between Mo Abudu and Yemisi Wada became frosty due to treachery and backstabbing.

It was gathered that Abudu snatched a project owned and nurtured by Wada’s NGO.

She reportedly hosted “Benefit Concert” to raise money to build shelter for the destitute in Lagos.

The concert was said to have yielded hundreds of millions in naira, and it was revealed that the Lagos State Government, under former governor Babatunde Fashola, pumped heavy resources into the project as well.

It was however, revealed that Mo Abudu ended up building the proposed shelters in the sky.

The funds were alleged to have found their ways into her personal pockets.

Sources stated that Mo Abudu ignored the advice of those who told her to put the funds into the purpose for which they were proposed for.

We were informed that angry at this display of disregard for accountability and integrity on Mo Abudu’s part, Yemisi filed a petition to the EFCC, inviting the anti-graft body to investigate the matter.

Consequently, Mo Abudu was said to have been invited, questioned and detained for a couple of days, and she was said to have filed a lawsuit against Yemisi Wada after her release.

Sources also disclosed that Mo Abudu once had an affair with the controversial former Minister of Aviation, Mr. Femi Fani-Kayode, who was formerly married to Yemisi Wada.

We gathered that this never went well with their mutual friends, who frowned at this act of betrayal.

The bickering between the two women was said to be so messy that even Fani-Kayode confided in some people that he wondered why his former wife would not get over his affair with Mo Abudu since she has since re-married.

“Asta Got millions Of Different Currencies From Officers Seeking Transfers, Promotions”

Allegations and counter allegations are being made against the immediate past Inspector General of Police, Mr. Ibrahim Idris on the premise that he used his last wife, Asta Idris to siphon money belonging to the Nigeria Police.

It will be recalled that shortly after he assumed duty as the number one police officer in the country in 2016, Ibrahim Idirs reportedly claimed that his predecessor, Mr. Solomon Arase went away with lots of vehicles belonging to the force.

But sources revealed that whatever Arase did as I.G was a child’s play compared to Ibrahim Idris’ alleged sleaze as the number one police officer in the country.

We gathered that the probe report met a huge amount of money running into billions of naira and millions of dollars and other currencies in the bank accounts of his wife, Asta Idris.

Idris was said to be formerly married to the daughter of the very influential Etsu Nupe.

It was gathered that Idris settled down with the daughter of the Emir of Nupe after many marriages.

We learned that Idris started dating Asta, a Deputy Superintendent of Police, described as a very smart lady shortly before he was elevated to the position of Inspector General of the Nigeria Police Force and that he later divorced his wife and settled down with the woman.

Sources alleged that Asta took over the affairs of the police force codedly immediately she married idris and rumours started circulating as to how she  was getting proceeds from senior officers of the force to remain in the good books of the police boss.

We were told that Asta was indirectly in-charge of deployment which made  officers struggled to impress her so that she could facilitate their deployment to juicy positions and that she was rewarded with huge amount of money that were allegedly deposited into her accounts.

“On leaving office, the present I.G, Mr. Mohammed Abubakar Adamu, who was inundated with complaints and petitions on the posting of senior and junior personnels called for investigations” said an insider

We were told that in the process, the bank account of Asta in Guaranty Trust Bank and other financial institutions were allegedly discovered to have been loaded with millions of different currencies and it was alleged that junior and senior officers funded the accounts either for promotion or to maintain their positions.

State of the art cars, mansions and shopping complexes were said to have also been traced to Asta’s name, as the insider put it, “what was discovered is unimaginable considering the short time the former I.G spent in office.

The source further confided in us that the amount of rots discovered by the new inspector general would take the force nothing less than twenty years to recover from.

The couple, idris and asta also allegedly employed questionable characters to superintendent over critical activities of the force in guise of being consultants

We were told that those loyal to the embattled ex inspector general, Ibrahim Idris have started making efforts to appease the present Inspector general.

The Kaduna State-born lady was alleged to have dated several officers before she finally settled down with the ex-I.G she is said to be a trained pilot.

With the way things are, sources maintained that nemesis might soon catch up with Asta and her husband, Ibrahim Idris as it was alleged that “they have loads of skeletons in their cupboards too numerous to suppress. “
