Tuface Idibia, Nigeria's No.1 Musician

Tuface Idibia
The history will never and can never be complete without mentioning the name Tuface Idibia
The real name of Tuface Idibia is Innocent Ujah Idibia.
Tuface(or 2face)  was born in Jos city of Plateau State on the 18th September, 1975(36 Years Old). 
Tuface is  actually  from the Okpokwu local government area and from the Idoma ethnic group in the southern part of Benue State.
He attended Mount Saint Gabriel's Secondary School in Makurdi, Benue State. 
Later on he proceeded to  Institute of Management & Technology (IMT), Enugu , where he did his preliminary National Diploma(ND) course in Business Administration and Management.
But he did not graduate from the Institute.
Despite the fact that he did not graduate he still pursue his dream of becoming a world class musician.
In IMT, he met Black Face(Rapper). 
Tuface, Black Face and another fellow musician named Faze, form the very popular group(but now defunct) called Plantashun Boyz.

Tuface is remembered for many songs. But one song really brought him out. That song is "African Queen" released in 2006

He is also called Tubaba(or 2baba) by fellow nigerian musicians because of his huge talent.
Tuface said he chose the name Tuface in order to separate his personal life from his career life.

Tuface has done collabors with many well known artistes like  R.Kelly and Prince Lee
