TUFACE & ANNIE by Edgar Joseph in our Bull's Eye series
Now when I was just starting life, I used to know Annie as a small girl who shared a room at the BQ in the house where I used to go play games in a suburb in Lagos. I did not really know her then, but when she gained celebrity status, my then friend pointed it out.
Tuface has over the years ruled my heart. His humility, passion and talent all have combined to create an artiste that has achieved what I would call the artistic trinity. By this I mean you will find in his works, inspiration from the great Fela, the inspirational Bob Marley and the genius of Majek Fashek.
I first had a taste of his raw talent at the defunct French Cultural Centre. As a poor young man, I used to go with my wife Mofoluwake to go watch free shows. This particular evening, a young good looking boy snuck on stage and did one Bob Marley number and disappeared into the night. The performance was mesmerising and I told my wife to watch out for that guy.
The next time I saw him was at my Egbon's studio. The world famous Keke Ogungbe and I remember telling Egbon to sign this guy o.
But today, my story is on his courage. His ability to choose one out of the three or is it 4 women who have children for him. I cannot wait for his return from his fairytale wedding to ask him the following questions:
Was it the cooking, was it the sex, was it the colour, was it ayiri or was it Governor Akpabio that gave Annie the edge over the others.
These are very pertinent questions that could save our democracy and Tuface owes us the answers.
Finally, I am in strong support of Governor Akpabio's kind gesture towards the couple. Annie by this action has shown that Akwa Ibom women are not only beautiful, but are very patient. They would in every circumstance eagerly share their hubby with the rest of the world because of the innate confidence they have in their love making abilities. The men, once they taste Calabar and Akwa Ibom soup, always come back no matter the amount of stew our Yoruba sisters feed them with. They come rushing back with pile. Ask Alibaba.
My only grouse is that, Our wonderful Governor should have at least repaired the road leading to Annie's village and rename it after her as part of the wedding largess.
