The Nigerian award-winning musician, Innocent Idibia popularly known as Tuface Idibia, has disclosed that he chose and married his wife, Annie Innocent Idibia, among many women that have kids for him.
The “African Queen” crooner is a father of seven children, in which five are from his previous relationships with other women, and two from his wife, Annie Idibia.
In an interview with Hypertek Digital, Tuface disclosed why he chose Annie above others.
He stated that most of his baby mamas are multimillionaires, but Annie had been there when he had nothing and was nothing.
He said: “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 song or millions of albums sold or big awards and accolades.”
“When I used to repeat just 3 sets of clothes, she would always hold my head, look me in the 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,” he added.
Tuface explained that Annie had been very supportive as she prayed for his victory, when he had controversies that almost destroyed his career.
He stated: “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 am still that small 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 businesswoman would want to look at me or even have my kids? No, so to answer your question, I did not choose who had more to offer me, I chose Annie because she offered me her all when we had very little”.
