Blackface has via a tweet confirmed that indeed he had not been among the 250 guests invited for the mega wedding of the year (so far) Tuface/Annie as he had gotten no invitation from Tuface to attend the ceremonies in Dubai.
Nope I dey Naija! I no dey go where I no dey invited! But I wish them all they wish themselves!
Tuface and BlackFace had been friend for years. Both met at the Institute of Management technology Enugu in 1996 shortly before Plantashun Boyz was formed with Richard Chibuzor Oj (Faze). They were cute buddies until undisclosed internal crisis forced the group to split.
Real trouble between these two however started with the noise raised over the original writer of African Queen. Tuface almost lost the shine he garnered from the success of the song after allegations of ‘unlawful usage of intellectual property’ was allegedly raised by Blackface. The matter was quickly and amicably settled but their relationship never again remained the same even after they came back briefly in 2007 to do a Plantashun Boyz re-union album titled Plan B.
Blackface has never been sighted at significant events concerning Tuface. Again probably because he has never been invited.
Tuface and Annie Idibia’s wedding held at the Sefinah Ballroom of Jumeirah Beach Hotel, Dubai. Reception took place at an exotic Island called Royal Island Beach. Guests were conveyed in luxury boats from the wedding venue to the Island. The wedding after party took place at Nigerian owned club, Kiza Nite Club.
If you were Tuface Idibia, would you have handled this differently? Share your thoughts.
