    Tuface Idibia is a True Legend/icon. Our Nigerian Micheal Jackson, both have major talent, great performers, Humble, Loved by all., crucified by all as well.However, Micheal was accused of being a pedophile, while Tuface is tagged as father of all nation. Having said all that, all the criticism, negativity, and also appraisal, didn’t deter them both from reaching greater heights. It just shows that no one is perfect.. HAPPY BIRTHDAY to a great Man.

      Are you seriously comparing him to MJ? Even beyonce is not on MJ ‘s status. Abeg compare him with his peers ( Dbang and co). Stop exaggerating his talent. There is nothing spectacular about his artistry.

      you are just a sad loser. Tubaba is in his own league.

      I am not sad and I am definitely not a loser. I am just keeping it real and I don’t have to suck up and celebrate mediocrity.

    Happy birthday 2baba. You have stood the test of time. Excelled and grown all round. You defined and redefined music in Nigeria. You never let you private battles deter you. You are a responsible father to your children and never had a malicious comment towards any of your baby mamas. I respect you and think you’re one of the best things since sliced bread.
    Happy birthday dear. God bless you.

    Happy birthday Tubaba. I remember the day you kept us waiting in school and then word went round that you were no longer coming. We got ready for bed, a whole lot of us already in bed. Only for us to hear your voice on the public address system at the porter’s lodge around 12 midnight. Ha with just night wears and screaming up and down we ran out of our various rooms. Moremi hall was a crazy place that night. Only you 2baba can get girls to act that way. With various shaks and all , off to sports center to watch you do your thing. Thanks 2Baba for making beautiful music. Love you and have a fun year. Ihe neme
