    I know he’s kinda cute but he just has one not-so-intelligent look. :S

    • Straight4ward March 1, 2011 at 12:11 pm

      Sweetie, I say this with love…”He is not-so intelligent”

    • Ebby March 1, 2011 at 4:37 pm

      Why don’t u post ur own picture so we d friends of BN will judge?? Dat way we can see wat intelligent looks like…? Mscheeeew!

      • Omogekofo March 2, 2011 at 9:00 am

        thanks oh Ebby, u took that outta my heart….. i don’t know if they write intelligent on the face.

      • Lady Gaga/French Niara March 4, 2011 at 1:13 pm

        it nothing nice 2face lacks alot of acting n picture credibility
        he sings well but….
        N this pictures look like they are from an amateur! n i dnt c the use of thse girls

  • Gosh! March 1, 2011 at 10:38 am

    Tuface should kindly remove his spectacles for once!!!! Are you cross-eyed? No? Are you visually impaired? Resounding NO! Dang!! As much as i love anything that has Tuface on it,I just don’t dig this shoot! And the 5th picture?? *scratches head real bad*

  • Femiluv March 1, 2011 at 10:49 am

    He should have taken off the glasses at least once. He still looks good though!

  • yemi March 1, 2011 at 10:52 am

    well…the pictures were nice…9ice from 2baba..keep on movin

  • ginika March 1, 2011 at 10:53 am

    lols… he is looking fresh and was is it necessary for the girl to be in the picture?

    • chioma March 2, 2011 at 12:39 am

      @ ginika….see beef ooo,which one u dey,r u his wife

  • tana March 1, 2011 at 11:13 am

    pics are not great

  • jd ugwu March 1, 2011 at 12:02 pm

    the pictures are just der jo, and wat are those girls doin there?

  • StephanieIj March 1, 2011 at 12:34 pm

    Whats the girl standing on the table or whatever there for? Gosh !
    I wish he didn’t even look down at the one on his tigh…smh..kmt.

  • Lil miss sunshine March 1, 2011 at 12:45 pm

    those girls didnt have to be in the pics, Tu face has got talent but not a fan.

    • ko-eazy! March 3, 2011 at 4:35 pm

      “Tuface has got talent but not a fan” You are joking right? I’m not even his greatest fan but my dear, just take that back, dude has talent and fans for decades!

      • Ready March 4, 2011 at 9:54 am

        I think he/she meant that although Tuface has talent, he/she’s not a fan. I think that’s pretty easy to decipher.

  • Nancy March 1, 2011 at 12:59 pm

    I think people should minimize d use of women in everything they do.And women should stop presenting themselves as objects!

    • Miss Face March 1, 2011 at 8:15 pm

      Intelligent analysis Nancy! Makes one wonder why a lady(????) should even be in these pictures. 2face needs professional help(publicists, etc) to clean up his acts considering that he is anything but celibate!This just doesnt paint him in good light(again).Love 2face-nice guy actually and very talented but his image needs help ASAP!

    • jennietobbie March 2, 2011 at 4:27 pm

      Thank you Nancy. We need male and female role models in Nigeria. Enough. Thanks

  • sallybonne March 1, 2011 at 12:59 pm

    gosh 2face u can be cute witout d glasses and dt girl backside was it necessary wat was she modelling or trying 2 portray wateva sha me thinks it aint his fault as per how d pictures turn out its d job of the photographer sooooooooooooooooooooooooo

  • chinnydiva March 1, 2011 at 1:15 pm

    y’all r squabbling about how d pictures look blah blah blah and u 4got a very intrinsic part of this post. D intro says this issue of Made Magazine was released last year December so y is Bella just posting it about 3months later? Dats mega stale

  • Kilonsparkles March 1, 2011 at 1:19 pm

    Really? They “styled” him in a hoodie and sneakers? Were they going for the Justin Beiber look? This is not the best they can do.

    • Sissy March 1, 2011 at 3:30 pm

      Seriously? in 2011 hoodie + indoor sunglasses?lol on the plus side the venue looks nice, i guess

    • Ready March 2, 2011 at 3:04 am

      Lol…I swear LFA no dey try. I’ve seen much of their work, and I would argue that they have no styling skills…they just put what they think looks cool; e.g. put chicks in tight dresses and Louboutin heels even if the dresses aint that fly.
      Eleanor Goodey sef no try…you’re the photographer. Even if he asked for a chick’s butt (so unnecessary) in the pictures, it’s your artistic vision that matters, really. No one would make David LaChappelle or Annie Leibowitz do something tacky just ’cause they’re stars.

    • Ncyluv March 2, 2011 at 7:55 pm

      @ Kilonsparkles my point exactly…the look is so17ish.

    • shade March 3, 2011 at 7:36 am

      As in!! So silly..

  • chigurl March 1, 2011 at 1:44 pm

    that girl wants to be a ‘WESTE’…she looks young and alrdi in this….hmmmm kilodem

    • Berry FeistyPen(Akan Nweke) March 1, 2011 at 4:47 pm

      Lol…chigurl…are you the ‘weste’ girl… Do you know Didi and Mfon? 🙂

  • NIRA March 1, 2011 at 2:03 pm

    HABA!!! Naija ppl and negativity!!!! Tufiakwa!!! That’s why this country is as backward as it is, cos nobody says anything positive about anything or anybody. A lot of BLACKNESS in the hearts of ppl.

    • Ready March 2, 2011 at 10:38 am

      Yes, it’s the positivity that matters. Whenever we see something that’s half-baked or just plain bad, as long as we put a smiley face on it and say good things about it, it’ll all be great and wonderful. Nigeria is backwards because no-one says anything good about anybody including Tuface, IBB and Obasanjo or about anything including our lack of power or great infrastructure. That’s the reason for Nigeria’s backwardness.
      I really hope you get by now that I’m being sarcastic, but hey I wasn’t negative and here’s a smileyface just for kicks 🙂 Wait…I think I just felt the country move an inch forward.

      • Nadine March 2, 2011 at 12:24 pm

        oh my!! hats off 2 u…. that was hilarious!! u have made my day

      • Akan March 3, 2011 at 12:03 pm

        U’ve made my day too oh! I can’t get over the creativity.. especially when you said you just felt the earth move forward!

  • THE AMAKA March 1, 2011 at 2:57 pm

    i love the photos…..byt we already know 2fae’s rap with women and kids, so why are they making him look like a womanizer oogling at women? na wa!

  • THE AMAKA March 1, 2011 at 3:01 pm

    sorry *but and *rep

  • toluwa March 1, 2011 at 3:04 pm

    my fav = last pic. The rest look blah!

  • Peperempe March 1, 2011 at 3:04 pm

    It appears that Gbenga Ashiru has cornered a new contract or something. This his magazine seems to be published very randomly ( when money dey). Made Mag: The magazine with more parties than issues per annum !

    The styling is lazy .

    • cutie March 1, 2011 at 6:33 pm

      why do you care what his moves are?! smh….kudos for try gbenga!

  • eleven March 1, 2011 at 3:07 pm

    2baba de here.!! Nice one bro
    buh the gal tins? Anyway nah concept.

  • Tiki March 1, 2011 at 4:11 pm

    Weh 2face! I’m a huge fan but seriously? them shoes are a NO-NO! and the positioning of legs in the 4th and 6th …AARRGGHH! U too fine and talented for this…I think its a minus for this one.

  • bobbydox March 1, 2011 at 4:33 pm

    omo na 2 baba wats up nice editorial shoot but it’s kinda dark

  • partyrider March 1, 2011 at 4:37 pm

    at least one pic in a suit wont hurt..

  • ayo March 1, 2011 at 4:41 pm

    Me like d pictures wella! Nice1

  • fash March 1, 2011 at 4:46 pm

    the clothes r childish abeg, photography is just there not spectacular. love love tuface but this is not a video shoot even if they wanted to use girls it should have been done to show his work like him holding a mic n two of them backup dancers not wat his work has done for him free to oogle girls…smh the photographer n stylist should go n learn

  • sexy March 1, 2011 at 5:03 pm

    Nice photos. its only God that know what happen between 2face and the girl after the photo shots.

  • Serene March 1, 2011 at 5:38 pm

    What is the concept behind the shoot? I doubt there was any. 2Baba is a humble, sweet guy in person and one of the few that doesn’t seem to have his ego in over drive…ahem…I’m looking at you Jim Iyke LOL

  • kenora March 1, 2011 at 5:50 pm

    nice pics 2face..u get swagga

  • soc omotoye March 1, 2011 at 6:03 pm


  • Swiss March 1, 2011 at 6:44 pm

    Those legs weren’t looking too oomph.

  • chiamaka March 1, 2011 at 6:51 pm

    Just love 2face

  • tayoor March 1, 2011 at 7:29 pm

    omo no lele

  • tunde March 1, 2011 at 7:40 pm

  • sassycassie March 1, 2011 at 7:48 pm

    I love me some tuface but liam fashion agency need to step their game up for real! tuface looks very tacky and childish in those outfits. and what’s with the women in the photos?! geez!

  • Dee gurl March 1, 2011 at 7:54 pm

    No matter what anybody thinks or says, 2Face is my man any day, any time…. am ur biggest fan bro… just do ur thing, ignore haters

  • omo-yankee March 1, 2011 at 10:06 pm

    I guess many of you do not understand the concept of a photo-shoot…….obviously, by your comments. Many photo shoots have different images and placements in their photos, They only place them there to add varieties and concept to the photo. Please get your mind of the gutter and try to understand the concept a little bit better…Expand your horizons and imaginations. You guys really need to travel abroad and take a glance at different magazines so you might understand the meaning of a photo-shoot.

    • tt March 2, 2011 at 12:11 am

      Nd ur point is? I’m sure some people commenting are abroad. Even if they are in Naij, foreign magazines are sold there…..they have access to the internet duh!

      Fashe concept, if the pic with the bbes butt had some story, ill understand. The thing is just there, even Tu baba looks confused (shud I look at the butt or shud I look into the camera %&$@!). Compare this to that Banke W’s pic with him sitting down in between a bbes leg, now that is a concept put together well. The picture was not just directed well SIMPLES!

      Not happy! Tuface is a music genius, one of the best out of Nigeria, this photo shoot does not do him justice. Hot mess.

    • Ready March 2, 2011 at 3:06 am

      You sef calm down. We understand what photo shoots are…they don’t have to be generic. It’s not even like the girl’s butt added some depth or interesting dynamic to the picture. It’s just there. Una just dey talk concept…please tell me (ngwa with your experienced omo yankee eye) what is the concept of this shoot? Wearing shades when there’s no sun?

    • Jack March 2, 2011 at 4:24 am

      Don’t mind these “in the dark” people posting comments here. I simply can’t be bothered trying to educate their ignorant -. The fact that Tuface isn’t celibate is no reason for him not to be seen near a woman.. What?! Nigerians. You people don’t know how to be politically correct. “Business Communication 101”

      • Ready March 2, 2011 at 8:53 am

        Olodo aiye at’orun is what you are. Calling people ‘in the dark’ and ‘ignorant’. Nle o…Mr. ‘In the light’ who knows it all. Who’s trying to be politically correct? A tacky photoshoot concept is a tacky photoshoot concept. You don’t add props that don’t enhance the picture…it’s just not done whether you live in the light or in the dark.
        “The fact that Tuface isn’t celibate is no reason for him not to be seen near a woman…” Which village do you come from where that sentence makes sense? What are you trying to say? Because he’s not celibate doesn’t mean he can’t be near a woman…Well, d’oh. Of course. And I don’t know which school you went to where staging a direction-less photoshoot with blah clothes is business communications 101. I really hope you can get a refund.

      • tt March 2, 2011 at 10:50 am

        Haha i understand what is going on here, all him nd omo yankee see is a hot bbe with a big butt, everything is now politically correct.

    • THE AMAKA March 2, 2011 at 4:32 am

      omo-yankee? you think you are the only one on this website in America? I’ve lived in America since the day i was born and i still say this photoshoot is tacky! are you gonna say im “unexposed”??? lol
      given his rep with women and him being a supposd womanizer, what does the oogling at women do for his rep? seriously, the styling was poor and the concept was “blah” especially given the fact that he is 2face. they need to step it up.

      • Sir Jubzy March 23, 2011 at 4:41 am

        I think u gurls should grow up n take d gossips out of dis site. As far as NIGERIANS and indeed the entire black populace are concern, that dude is a musical icon, great personality, and above all a caring and lovely father. If the boy no sweet, how com u na dey waste una tyme dey comment for mata wey no concern una? Ameebo!!!

    • Miss Face March 2, 2011 at 11:22 am

      Omo-yankee is on point and it is for this reason that i have started making plans to travel abroad just so that i too would be exposed.Please whats the 1st step? + someone pls wipe-out that sheepish look off 2face’s face! Un-proffessional photoshoot!

      • MissMe March 2, 2011 at 2:34 pm

        LOOOL!! “what’s the first step”?

      • ko-eazy! March 3, 2011 at 5:11 pm

        Yoooooooo, Missface, you got me rolling mehn! The first step is to go to the American consulate in Omo Yankee’s village! Oh gosh, Nigerians, y’all just mad funny

    • Serene March 2, 2011 at 4:59 pm

      Omo-Yankee, I am sure that everyone here is educated, exposed on some level on the other and entitled to their opinion which by no means has to correspond with yours. Don’t accuse people of having their minds in the gutter simply because they don’t like lack of concept behind the shoot. You like it, a majority of us don’t and that should be fine in a civilized world. It is VERY insulting for you to assume that everyone here is from Nigeria, has never left Nigeria and therefore are unenlightened…might I say that is very closed minded of you and Mr./Mrs. Jack In The Light. Maybe if you OPENED your eyes, your mind and your aesthetics you could see what people are saying here about this direction-less shoot.

      There are no interesting camera angles or postures from 2Baba who is not a model by profession and needs direction from the photographer. The pictures are very DARK…now, if 2Baba were going through a harrowing experience in his life then that would make sense but his body language and face does not match that idea. The women in the shot at the club/bar were probably meant to play up his personal history BUT even that is a dead topic, been there, done that, got the post card. We know that about him already so what is exactly new about this concept? What is it shedding light on? It gives us NOTHING new to know about 2Baba, the artist, the man. I want to see a photography concept that captures where he is NOW in his head space musically and personally. AND buddy, from one Omo-Yankee to another (Manhattan born, Nigeria-bred, current Tarrytown, NY resident), the fans EXPECT more for their money, i.e. the money they spend buying cds and this magazine to read about their musical hero!

      • shade March 3, 2011 at 7:43 am

        And that is all…

  • ayo March 1, 2011 at 11:52 pm

    Omo yankee olenu! Me jst lyk want I am seeing! Aint know – bout d technical details of photography

  • amber rose March 2, 2011 at 12:00 am

    omo yankee, wateva…just cuz u r thr dnt mean u shld say we dnt knw wat a foto shoot is. i am a stylist and im quite versed in the art. he looked great bt the gals had no use being in the shoots. they didnt enhance the shoot. dat being said. tuface looks good…even if caught wearing a sack. but, if i were the one styling the shoot, i’d put him in shorts, shirtless and outdoors, a blazing sunset behind him. or wearing a suit,on stage, crooning tunes with adoring fans drooling n wettn demselvz. i could do a million things with 2baba

  • tt March 2, 2011 at 12:15 am

    Can we also loose the hoodies please, Nigeria is a tropical country, wth

  • mary007 March 2, 2011 at 12:57 am

  • t-girl March 2, 2011 at 8:42 am

    the pictures don’t look fantastic…………….i’m a fan though

  • Yvonne March 2, 2011 at 9:46 am

    MADE Magazine got it wrong with these pictures,very dodgy photography. The shots/angles are awful. i’ve seen better pictures of Tuface and these dont do him justice at all. MADE claims to be big,please employ the services of star photographers like Kelechi Amadi Obi for an equally big star like tuface.

  • Oma March 2, 2011 at 10:18 am

    Love Always. Talented and driven young man.

  • kaymeee March 2, 2011 at 10:20 am

    not feeling any of these pics as amber rose stated there are a million and one things that could have been done with tubaba at the photshoot, this concept is basically meaningless

  • chigurl March 2, 2011 at 10:28 am

    i was just going to reply ‘omo yankee’ but saw he/she had alredi been attended to*smh*. you may be in yankee but we in nigeria havent lost our senses and values, we actually expand our horizons and imaginations(like u said) but with the future in mind and pls o im sure a couple of us actually travel beyond the shores of nigeria,we only choose to sieve the positives rather than the negatives….get a life please and dont be a WESTE

    • daralynn March 3, 2011 at 11:10 pm

      exactly, in omo-yankee’s mind, we still mud hut chilling now

  • Sincere March 2, 2011 at 10:51 am

    Love Tuface …but really this photo shoot is really not the best! The images are just short of terrible. Sorry but try better next time!

  • sassycassie March 2, 2011 at 11:41 am

God bless you for everything you said… lmao

  • mimi July 29, 2011 at 12:00 pm

    this is coming so late but…ths comments have made me laff so hard!
    I honestly wont blame TuFace or the Photographer..ths s a magazine photoshoot so it must b wat d editors a magazine editor, i knw each edition has a certain theme though I do think ths theme is kind of stereotype for TuFace nd so J Bieber. His PR ppl shd hav stuck a better deal nd try as much as possible to use every photoshoot, tv or radio show they get to do wat they r paid to do; work on his image n brand cos as much as we luv TuFace (or his Innocent face), better work has to b done on his image to make it timeless.
