“Wedding Gift from Senate President David Mark to 2Face & Annie Idibia” – A Brand New Chevy Corvette | Photos

Published

 on

2Face Annie Dubai BellaNaija 56
Guests spotted this brand new Chevy Corvette with the message “Wedding Gift from Senator David Mark to Tuface & Annie” at the couple’s wedding in Dubai yesterday.

2Face is from Benue State, the same state as Senate President David Mark who is the Senator for the Benue South constituency.

The retails from $49,600 in the United States which is approximately N7,850,000.

Here is how the official website describes the car;

Corvette has carved a permanent place as an innovator in the global automotive landscape and is the top-selling high-performance sports car in its segment. From its standard 430-horsepower LS3 all-aluminum V8 engine, 190-mph performance and its 26-MPG-highway† fuel efficiency, Corvette defines state-of-the-art technology, engineering and design among luxury sports cars year after year. And with options for personalization, the 2013 Corvette stands to reflect unparalleled distinction.

According to CKN Nigeria, Special Adviser – Media & Publicity to the President of the Senate David Mark, Kola Ologbondiyan allegedly claims the gift is not from Senator Mark {Click HERE to see the full report}

Senator Mark did not visit Dubai for Tuface wedding rather he attended the 128th Inter parliamentary Union (IPU) conference currently holding in Quito, Ecuador. He was also not represented at Mr. Idibia’s wedding. It is also instructive to state that the President of the Senate, Senator Mark, did not make a car donation of any kind to Tuface before departing Nigeria for Ecuador neither did he purchase nor send any car to Dubai as a wedding gift for the musician or his wife. Who made the donation on behalf of the President of the Senate?
It is therefore a puerile lie for anybody to state that Senator Mark bought a Ferrari car worth N47m for Tuface. The allegation is wicked, ridiculous and irresponsible.

What should we believe, the photos or the politician’s PR? No word on how the car will make it back to Lagos where the couple is based.

    OH GOD pls help us in Nigeria, save us oh lord for our souls have become corrupt…. how can he justify the money, was it from his savings? oh God!!!!!! cant even speak

  11. Our government officials are dumb clearly

    March 25, 2013 at 12:16 am

    this is soo dumb, im happy for them and everything but you dont see obama giving jay and beyonce wedding presents, what the hell. This is ridiculous. So because he was lucky enough to be noticed as an artist and do one major song , he deserves an expensive sports car, free travel expenses in dubai for 30 close friends and 2 suv’s, are you kidding me? what about all the other artists who are just as good or better but were not lucky enough to become successful? This is ridiculous, and Goodluck really really needs to do something about all this reckless spending going on with governments, there are way too many officials acting awfully. They are also not setting good examples for the younger generation, its just one big vicious cycle ,URGH I love nigeria but these people frustrate the hell out of me sometimes. GRRRRRrrrrr

      Thank you for this comment, this gift to me is unnecessary. Misplaced priorities.

      March 25, 2013 at 1:02 am

      Ho w can Goodluck do anything about it, when he is the one granting all the looters Prsidential pardon. All the politians know, that no matter how much they loot, they will go scotfree at the end of the day.That’s why they embezzle openly and even rub it in our faces. Goodluck is officially the worst President Nigeria has ever had!!

    • Bunmi

      March 25, 2013 at 11:40 am

      We’ve never had a good leader. The rest were just smarter and had more control. Goodluck is weak and a dumb broad who studied animals. That’s his specialty, animals.

    Absolutely disgraceful, that money could have done a whole lot for starving/homeless children in his state. He should hide his face in shame !!! These are the “airheads” we have as politicians.

  17. Our government officials are dumb clearly

    March 25, 2013 at 12:21 am

    LEts not forget that this is the same guy that has about 3 or 4 baby mamas ,..6 kids in total. They are now saying that the fact that she stood by her man through thick and thin shows that shes the true akwa ibom woman , oh PUHLEASE , yes i give her that she tried but dont encourage such behaviour by rewarding her for it, that was her choice , dont encourage others to do the same thing, if they want to do it let them but if they dont end up the way annie did that’s on them. Don’t these older people realise that they need to be role models for the younger generation and set good examples. ah ah these people are DUMB, Infact I am running for president, and incase you can’t tell, I am a woman. because clearly the men in our country dey one kind. 😛 please dont attack me o , that last bit was a joke, but really I’m running for president, watch this space people 😉

    Bella Naija your facts/bio about David Mark are not correct…there is no such thing as Benue State Constiuency…you copied that from Wikipedia’s page which is not correct….there are three constiuency’s in Benue State…Benue North East, Benue North-West and Benue South which David Mark represents.. 2Face and David Mark are from the same tribe the Idoma’s which are the second dominant tribe in Benue State after the Tiv People. History Lesson over 🙂 ….other than that..Keep up the good work!

      you must be be very silly for that response,as if you hv common garri to drink in ur house,and you feel buyibg a car worth that amount is the best gift from him,May God punush mark,well tuface and his wife can enjoy it,na thr gift,they didnt dip hand into anyone’s pocket,but if this car is trully from david mark,may his generation pay for this bitterly……….,heard this same selfish mark rejected a bill for unemployed graduates to be paid 20k monthly,i repeat,his generation would pay for it…….msheew

    IkoAbasi, poverty content of the mind dey worry u. It is worrisome that these people who are well to do get cars while the ones that work hard everyday gets nothing. Some of these politicians will not give to a good cause but they give towards rubbish like this.

  24. Anu

    March 25, 2013 at 1:06 am

    @IkoAbasi this has nothing to do with poverty mentality. The outrage here is the source of funds for these expensive gifts. Not many will comment if it was Dangote giving the gifts, but these so called “public servants” are using our money as though it was theirs.

    • My spirit is vexed!!

      March 25, 2013 at 1:17 am

      Exactly….If it were Dangote or Adenuga, not many would complain! but how does a public office holder afford such lavish gifts on a stranger?? somebody please tell me how??!! I would expect Tuface to return this car, as he is one of the few people that still sing about social justice and political conscience in Nigeria!!
      and please, I curse anyone that wants to write a yeye “if it were you, would you return it??” reply in advance…Na thunder go fire your poverty stricken/ corruption ridden mind. And,Yes!! I would return it!! Tuface can afford that car, he doesn’t need it!

      1. the couple should go and rest small o.. after all this I bet they need it. “Noise” is not a friend of the body (..but what am I saying, they are celebs what do you expect they are prolly loving the whole thingy). Hian
      2. Hmmm Dangote, Adenuga … etc please and I mean please other “noble” Nigerians should emulate these icons and help the country and not the same whole VICIOUS cycle of what have you. The system is CORRUPT… but I believe AMENDMENTS can still take place. #Prayer

      @TalktheTalk…I never said those entrepreneurs were “noble” o! But at least there’s the front that it’s their personal money…..shady money gotten at the expense of other Nigerians? maybe….but at least dem get company. What’s David Marks dealios? plus a public official doling money out is never a good look!!

    1. Nigerian politicians will never own up to anything (in some cases even their own names)
    2. How can we sit down and think there is nothing wrong with what Mark did? Why is it that when things are clearly wrong, a group of people do not seem to see it that way? and unfortunately in Nigeria those group of people always have the final say? Nigeria is is beginning to look like a dark tunnel with no light in sight. How can anyone justify that gift?

      I am sorry for you… cos if you know how much his salary is then you will know why everybody is complaining cos from his salary there is no way he can afford anything like this. Maybe I am stupid in believing that the problem with Nigerians is because there not aware of the way things ought to be, but maybe the truth is they dont want to know and dont care about it, they live only for themselves and the present… which is really sad.

    But this wasn’t the only car gift 2face and Annie received. I was in Dubai for the wedding, and there were 4 other Car gifts given to them. You know what? I think 2face will be spending an extra cash in shipping his wedding Gifts from Dubai to Nigeria because the gifts were so so much. Exclusive pictures are for the Redsheet Entertainment Magazine. Anyway, congrats 2baba.

    O please enough of this haba….All this politicians spend so much money on other useless things u and I do not know about. What is 7million to David Mark? Its nothing. If he used our public fund to get a car present for tuface and his wife, then allow them enjoy their gift. They did not beg for it. Truthfully, most of u are actually worse coz if u were in Tubaba’s shoe, u would beg for more. Please free dem joor , go and do something positive in ur life dat can attract such favors in your life. Hypocrites !!!

    Please i would just like to ask a simple question: Was this gift bought with David Mark’s funds, state funds or country funds?

    Life is a roller costar..let God’s will be done
    If it is Government money then God is watching..but if not ………
    A man with scattered kids around had only one kid present at his marriage ……..
    as if the other kids are not that important to him…
    The only positive character about tuface is that..he is a good musician
    aside from music talent…reasoning mentality (zero IQ)
    Enjoy the gifts while natives of AkwaIbom and Benue are suffering with little or no social amneties like good roads and clean pipe borne water..
    After all will not even blame 2baba a gift is a gift did he ask for it?? no…but a man with some reasoning IQ..will know what to do ………..

    I have never directed insult at a particular person but right now, I am tempted to ‘directly attack’ someone BUT I was taught better, to always hold firm …. deep breath…

    Dear IkoAbasi,
    I will understand your childish and thoughtless comment if you are below the age of 16 as immaturity will be the order of your day but if you are above the said age, then you are the ruin of your generation. If at all you work, pay your tax and comply by other civil duties expected of you, then by sheer default, you should be interested in the allocations and spendings of the people you put in political positions. You should monitor how the monies are being allocated and spent ‘logically’. When it comes to the treasury of a community, it is not a child’s play (I expect social studies should have taught you that in secondary school). All kobo is accountable for. Yes, Governors and Senators can dole out gift to whom ever they deem please but it should be within their monthly or annual pay not something pointing outrightly to funds being misspent and managed.

    You lackadaisical attitude is the reason why Aye Kwe Ama’s book The Beautiful Ones Are Not Yet Born is true of your generation. And to you and your fellow cohorts who thinks those in protest of the unnecessary gifts are being driven by poverty, frustration and jealousy I pity for you what exactly have you all achieve in your life? what legacies are you leaving for your generations to come? I see it…the future is BLEAK for you.

    For those who protest and raise their voices against the injustice being done to us by the bulls we put in political position, I can only say; one day, our voice will be heard.We may not benefit from it but our generations to come will tell stories of our struggles and celebrate us just like we celebrate Chinua Achebe today! The struggle of the likes of Awolowo, Azikiwe M.K.O (excuse my not mentioning more) to make Nigeria a great nation will not fail in our…we will passing the burning torch to our offspring.

    Iko Abasi et al, I implore you to go back to your drawing boards and see things from a clearer perspective, take interest in your environment and most of all, be a tool for change in your society.

      Please don’t waste your time on these people. You cannot make a blind bat see. We don’t need to take ourselves back. Let’s leave these people behind. Like I said, they are most interested in pop culture. These are the ones who will vote for Alams/ Goodluck if he offered them blackberry phones or sacks of rice because they don’t care about the future. These leaders will resign, take their stolen funds and invest in themselves while you and your children will continue to suffer for their greed.
      We are fighting for accountability and transparency because these bastards don’t give a damn. Rubbing their illegal acts in our faces and dumb people like Abasi are saying “is it your money?” Yes ode, it’s our money. We work hard for this sh*t..people don’t have food, homes etc. You barely have power, you have to supply your own water, security..Haven’t we had enough? Stop gaining your education from celebs and entertainment blogs and read a book on Nigeria as a failed nation.

      Dude, it’s not even about the gift or its recipient. People know this man embezzles way more money and can afford to dash out a car 10x as expensive. But I wonder, so just because the car is “only 7m” we shouldn’t give a damn? (have you even seen 70k in your life?) Does the OccupyNaija movement not prove that people have had enough of all these rubbish? but still your fish brain can only give primary1 level answers about ranting in public. Let me tell you…we will rise again! It is the same blood that ran in the veins of our fathers when we got independence that still runs in our veins (we need independence from corruption) and just like the colonial mentality, brains of people like you has been sabotaged by corruption….but one day we will rise!!Our spirit is stared, we have had enough….

    People, if you want to have a sense of how D Mark ‘marked-out’ your common wealth, try and access and read the comments of the Judge who presided over his divorce from his wife in a UK court. We are still talking about the same Mark who bought a golf course abroad and said phone is not for the poor. He is your senate presido today and can ride over u all to become your ultimate presido if he likes. Yes, what can u do to stop him? Plenty mumu for Nigeria who have no standards in morals or principles. Plenty more too whose only thought by way of a solution is ‘God dey’. So tell me if u have any hope.

    When people tailk about wealth acquisitions by the Nigerian public office holder, I refused to believe in view of what I am reading about David Mark. I refused to agree that David Mark (Senate President) is also a currupt man. As far as I am concern he is being blackmailed by those who did not like him. Mark did not mean to say that “phone is not for the poor” he was trying to let Nigerians know how expensive the phone were as that time. This should not be misinterpreted to mean that he did not want the poor Nigerian to have telephones. For somebody to read an excerp from a lengthy speach a sentece that could be annoying to the public is highly unacceptable. Mark has been a “servitude” in all his life in the public all these while without caring for himself. Yet some people are acusing him of curruptly enriching himself. Where did he keep those wealth? Go to his house at Otukpo Obi-Oju road you will agree with me that this man will regrate for not doing anything for his people nor himself. Dave Mark and Prof. Jerry Gana the former minister of information are the Nigerian of a kind in view of corrupt enrichment while in the office. In Nigeria when you hear people saying that the man didnot do anything when he was in office, it means he did not corruptly enriched himself. Professor Jery Gana was such a man. He was transperent throughout his tenour as a minister. David Mark is another public office holder I can say he not corrupt as being rumoured. I am saying this because I ‘ve been to his village at Otukpo in Benue State. I beg the blackmailers to please stop distroying the public office holder even if they don’t then.
