The statement obtained by Idoma Voice called on the Och’Idoma to

“The entire conference of Idoma Artistes felicitate with or own son,
Innocent Ujah Idibia as he clock 40 years this September 18.
“We are proud of him. We thank him for taking the Idoma dialect to the
international community with his music. No doubt, he deserves the
title of Okougene 1 of Idoma land.
“We pray God to give him the strength and voice like that of angles to
keep the light shining,” part of the statement reads.
Below are tributes to the amn of the moment from his colleagues in the
music industry.

He is a spirit –DJ HUMILITY
Tuface is a dynamic performer and a musician who seamlessly blends all
kinds of sound to create a sound of his own. His unique style reflects
his honest talent and earned him a devoted fan following, critical
acclaim, and the genuine respect and admiration of his musical peers.
I know many people see him as a music god now; that’s not far from the
truth. He is the dream of that African music that came to pass. Tuface
is a music living legend of our time, a show stopper. I am so happy
for his achievements. I have been privileged to work with him for some
time and I must confess that he is a huge talent. He has some things
in him that I can’t really place. He just comes into the studio and
turns things around.

He has a magic of sort in his voice. Give Tuface any kind of song, I
am sure he would do justice to it. Even when I was still playing as an
in-house DJ at a club on the island, I had many people who fought me
for now repeating Tuface’s songs for more than three times. This is
just to show you how much he is loved. Just like you can be sure, if
you have Tuface on the cover of your magazine or newspaper, you can be
sure you will sell that edition well. I think Tuface is a spirit.

He is Nigeria’s king of pop music –ICE PRINCE, Rapper
I see Tuface as king of Nigerian pop music.  Tuface is our daddy.
Even D’Banj, when he sees Tuface, he calls him daddy.  Tuface has been
here longer than any of us.  He has been the most consistent than any
other person, and his music is just too good.

He is hard-working, he does his homework, he is exposed and he knows
what is new, he knows how to stay relevant.  A lot of people who were
around when he started, have all faded.  I don’t want to start calling
names but Tuface still remains from the Plantashun Boyz of 1998 to
2011, he is

Plantashun Boyz breakup was a blessing in disguise –FAZE, Musician
The whole thing is just like yesterday. Each time I remember how it
all started, I just can’t stop laughing. Ironically, we didn’t know
this is how things would later be. We had different plans and dreams.
But fate would always have it way.
Some years ago when we broke up, we thought it was a disaster but now
when we all look back, we thank God because the split has made us men
of our own.

Talking about his talent, I am not shy to say Tuface is a huge talent.
He has the best voice so far and he knows how to render his music
well. He is vast and he is a success as far as I am concerned. He is
just a wonderful singer that is favoured by God. I have listened to
his new album Away & Beyond and I must say it’s excellent. To me,
Tuface has gotten to the peak of his career in music. He is an
achiever, resilient man and self motivated. His new album is just a
present to all his fans.

Insider’s account: secret of Tuface’s success
The key to survival in this business is humility. You have to be
humble, you have to be hardworking, you have to be wise, you have to
save more than you spend.  Always make sure you save more than you

The Top 4 artistes in Nigeria today is as follows: Tuface is No.1,
D’Banj is No.2, P Square is No.3 and M.I. is No.4.  If you go to any
agency, these are the names you will see first.  Check out all these
people and you will find they are humble to a fault.  That is the key
to success.  Humility, wisdom and hard work.
All these people work hard.  If it takes Tuface spending a lot of
money to go and record an artist in China, he would do it.  If it
takes D’Banj no matter how much to go and record with Snoop Dog, he
would do it.
