At a time when many celebrity marriages barely last, Tuface and Annie Idibia continue to inspire us.
Tuface and Annie are celebrating five years together as husband and wife. As part of the celebration, Annie planned a surprise trip to Ghana for her husband, with the help of his manager and personal assistant.
Long time coming
The music artiste and Nollywood star have been together for about sixteen years. They first met in 1999, started dating in 2002, broke up a number of times but got married in a lavish wedding Dubai on Saturday 23rd March 2013, after an equally glamorous traditional wedding ceremony in Eket, Akwa Ibom.
Ever since, the two have never seized to show their affection for each other, with the singer severally thanking his wife for marrying him despite his flaws. Annie has often called her husband The truth and My rock.
This time last year
Last year 2017 Annie got a pleasant wedding anniversary surprise when her husband, who was supposed to be away in Madrid, made a surprise appearance at a quiet little dinner she was having with friends. A saxophonist who was part of the surprise team, played a soft melodious tune, as he made his surprise entrance.
Theirs is a marriage that has endured a lot of challenges, and they have been able to successfully manage the many controversies that have trailed them, the latest being an accusation by a follower on Annie’s social media who tagged Tuface a cheat.
The Benue-born Innocent Idibia (better known as Tuface or 2baba) is arguably Africa’s most celebrated music artiste, and his Akwa Ibom-born wife is a graduate of Theatre Arts from the University of Lagos. She made her debut in Nollywood in 2009, after becoming second runner-up in the Queen of All Nations Beauty Pageant, and has featured in several movies.
They have two daughters together, and five sons from previous relationships, and live happily as one family. Annie is not counting on having more children as they are already blessed with seven.
