Tuface Idibia: Of All the Ladies in the world, This is the Reason why I got Married to Annie
Words of the popular hip-hop musician, TuBaba Innocent Idibia, speaking on his marriage to Annie
Why I Got Married to Annie, I didn’t chose who had more to offer me; I chose Annie because she offered me her all when we had very little.
“You see, Pero Adeniyi who gave birth to my first son graduated from a top UK university as a medical student and is now a doctor. She is very beautiful and intelligent from a very wealthy family.
“Sandra who gave birth to my other two kids is a dealer in expensive diamond and gold jewelries. She was already a multi-millionaire when I met her, she owns one of the most expensive houses in Banana Island. Her family too are very well to do.
“Falilat who gave birth to two kids for me is also a very intelligent first class lawyer. She has worked on and won many big cases for so many wealthy men and women in this country and abroad, that’s how she made her money and she too is very beautiful as well.
“But you see Annie is from an average background like myself, we both started from nothing. She stuck by me through it all. When there was no car she hopped on bikes, took the bus and trekked with me, when there was no money or house or hit songs or or millions of albums sold or big awards and accolades,
when I used to repeat just three sets of clothes, she would always hold my head, look into my eyes and tell me things will be fine one day.
“When I wasn’t handsome, she would call me her Prince Charming. When I wasn’t celebrated, she called me her King; and said she is my number one fan and to this day she still is. Even when I made it big as a musician and started misbehaving and controversies almost destroyed my career, she would go down on her knees and pray to God to show me the way and give me victory over my enemies.
“Now if I was still that poor boy struggling to make it like every other young chap on the streets of Lagos, do you think a doctor, a lawyer and a multi-millionaire business woman will want to look at me twice or even have my kids? NO.
“I didn’t chose who had more to offer me; I chose Annie because she offered me her all when we had very little.”
