Nigerian music superstar, Tuface Idibia has succeeded not only in putting smiles on the faces of his fans worldwide but secured even more, the love of his heartthrob and wife, Annie Macaulay Idibia.
Annie opened up on Jara, a programme on AfricaMagic TV on how her husband had proposed to her on Valentine’s Day, February 14th.
“He called me up one morning that I should meet him in Lagos so that we can hang out. He said his friends are around and they want to take us out. So, I agreed to see him. I remember it was a particular friend of ours that was around that day, although I would not like to mention his name.”And when I got to Lagos that day, he was like ‘let’s go to the club.’ When we got to the club, the place was totally empty. Obviously confused, I asked him, baby, what are we doing here, it’s empty” and before I turned back, my brothers and friends showed up. I was so perplexed that I had to ask what everybody was doing around there and they said they heard we were there and they came”.
Having managed to deal with the first phase of the pleasant surprise thrown her, she obviously imagined no more surprises would spring up that day again – at least not there – and was ready to get it over and done with – hanging out there, that is. Little did she know her then husband to be wasn’t done surprising.
“Just about few minutes after, Tuface picked up the microphone and I thought he was going to do all the normal hypes he does when he goes to the club. But he shocked me. He started saying things about how I have always been there for him since day one. How I have sacrificed a lot for him. How I have cried and stood strong during his trying moments.
The truth is, he said so many things I can’t remember now. He said so many wonderful things that sent me into another world and I couldn’t even hear the other things he said.
“I didn’t even know when he walked up to me and he said “Please, will you marry me?” And I was like, “Can you imagine? What’s going on here?” he was saying so many things that I can’t even remember. It all blew my head”.
However, she doesn’t ignore the mentioning how that she’s aware of the challenges that come with being married to a famous act and parenthood but it’s great to know she’s not breaking under the weight.
“Although, it has not been easy since we had our traditional marriage. The truth is, it is not easy to be married to a superstar but I still live my normal life. Right now, I feel 24 hours is not enough for me because I have my husband, my daughter and myself to take care of. It has really been crazy and God knows I have been trying my best. I wish I have more time to handle all of this”.
