Hi guys & dolls!

Loving all things TuFace Idibia! Just got off the phone with his peeps and they are already in the A (Atlanta, Georgia) as I write to tape his appearance on BET’s “The Monique Show”.

With Tuface at Afrotainment Studios

Said his camp, “Yes, the car came already to pick him up to take him to the studios (or the Penthouse as Monique likes to call it). We are taping The Monique Show this morning. He doing this for Africa, for his fans.

Earlier this month, Tuface stopped by our studio’s at Afrotainment for a sit-down interview with the “Point Of View” ladies. You can check out his interview on DishNetwork Channel 751 on 6:30pm on Sunday.

I also got a chance to spend time & hang out with Tuface and his beautiful family as they vacayed! We had fun times (what happens during vacation, must remain there, ha!)

What I absolutely loved and adored about Tuface is that he is so humble, down-to-earth & passionate about Africa! Boy, did we talk African politics, the problems plaguing the continent. Our discourse did not end there. We dissected possible solutions, what we could do individually & collectively as Africans…one thing was evident, the man’s heartsong is Africa!

Tuface tells me that a friend connected him to fab singer, Mary J Blige, whom he recorded a song with. He was part of Sony Music Worldwide and Rockstar4000‘s International Supergroup “One8” made up of 8 African superstars from 8 different countries and  R. Kelly. The artistes include R. Kelly (USA), 2face Idibia (Nigeria), Amani (Kenya), Fally Ipupa (Congo), JK (Zambia), 4X4 (Ghana), Navio (Uganda), Alikiba (Tanzania) and Movaizhaleine (Gabon). They recorded the song,“Hands Across The World”, in Chicago. This is the 1st single from One8, and we’re told to expect a full-blown album, a DVD release, and a series of Diaries in the very near future (possibly before the end of the year).

Here is Tuface talking about the One8 project:

Here is a music video of one my personal favorite Tuface‘s song:


His catalog is pretty extensive and I know most of you know his world-famous “Implication“, “African Queen” songs. He tells a funny story that when he performed live in concert in Jamaica, particularly after “African Queen“, the Jamaicans would ask him “what island ya from?” *inserts Jamaican accent*. You should hear him tell it!



Speak on it….

Muah & ♥ ya for it!
