NIGERIANS are finding it difficult to come to terms with the luxury gifts that governors and Senate President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria have continued to shower on the R & B crooner, Tuface Idibia and his lovely wife, Annie as wedding presents.

Just yesterday, Saturday in at the Jumeirah Beach Hotel, a five star resort in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, the musician who has fathered three kids for three different women was allegedly  honoured by the Senate President, Senator David Mark with 2012 Ferari Car worth about N47 million. Tuface  and the Senate President are from Benue State, while Governor of the state Gabriel Suswan was also said to have donated the sum of N10 million to the millionaire couple.

Far away in Eket, Akwa Ibom State, on March 8, 2013, Governor Godswill Akpabio donated two Toyota Prado SUVs as gift to the couple and offered to sponsor 20 relatives of bride to Dubai to attend their white wedding.  Akpabio and Annie are from the same state. The SUVs were presented to the couple by Commissioner for Information, Mr. Aniekan Umanah. Tuface proposed to Annie on Valentine’s Day in 2012 and legalised the union secretly in a Lagos registry on May 1, 2012. We gathered that  guests were taken on a 45-minute ride on a luxury boat to the exotic beach for the reception.

In attendance were Sound Sultan, Don Jazzy, Cecil Hammond, Rita Dominic, Ubi Franklin, Dr. SID, Eldee ‘The Don,’ Davido, Banky W, Kate Henshaw-Nuttal, Ini Edo, Susan Peters, DJ Jimmy Jatt, Uti Nwachukwu, Alex Ekubo, Tunde Ednut, Jim Iyke, Mike Ezuruonye  and DJ Tee among others.

Meanwhile the luxury  gifts have sparked some criticism among Nigerians with some saying that both governors and the Senate President would have done Nigerians proud if they have converted the gifts into cash and distributed to the less privileged and millions of  jobless Nigerians in the society. What do you think.





  1. No one would say that there is any thing wrong for both Senate President David Mark and Governor Gabriel Suswan to share gifts to a junior one on a happy day such as the wedding of 2Face Idibia, because apart from having the same background as prominent Benue sons who a have made a mark in polices and leadership of the state and indeed the country, and Idibia in his music career, Suswam and 2Face happen to belong to what I may describe as the Makurdi boyz club, since both were born and brought up in the Benue state capital and Mark an Idoma father and or uncle of the musical star. What is however uncertain is, wether these political leaders of the Benue stock would have done so to 2Face, if he had remain in his class of the hitherto “spoiled boy”, which himself has sang of in some of his songs? Of course, there is time for every thing under heaven and 2Face should also be able to determine when it is time to accept gifts and from whom to accept them, as there are also times to change class and when classes change any thing goes. Mark and Suswam have rather thought us that it is time to begin to take from the have not and pass it to the haves, as this is correct according to biblical injunctions, ok?
