R.Kelly denies duet with Tuface Idibia !

Since he release d his latest album, UNSTOPPABLE, popular singer, 2face idibia has found himself faced with one controversy or the other. The latest centers around the duet he claimed to have done with American RnB star, R. Kelly. The song in question is titled 'FLEX'. According to him, in a recent interview, the deal was brokered by Toyin Subair, boss of HiTV cable network and he (2face), actually met R. Kelly in the US before recording the song. One of the reasons people seemed to be debating the authenticity of his claim of a collabo with R.Kelly is because the beat of the said song has been used by R.Kelly before in one of his songs.

While the entire nation seemed to have forgotten the issue, the whole collabo brouhaha came up again when R.Kelly visited Nigeria a few weeks ago. Expectedly, many people were expecting to see Tuface perform with R. Kelly but that didn't happen. Rumours started flying that Tuface may have lied to Nigerians about having done a duet with R.Kelly.

Surprisingly, 2face, who'd featured in past music festival organized by ThisDay didn't make the list of the performing artists billed for R.Kelly's show. An insider disclosed that when R.Kelly was asked if he knows Tuface, he denied him, saying he had never heard the name before. He was said to have listened to the song they were meant to have done together and he laughed over it, insisting that he made the beat a long time ago, and that it must have been tapped on the internet.

This City People learnt got the organizers upset and it is for this reason, sources revealed that 2face may have been dropped from the show.

Last week Thursday, City People put a call across to 2face to comment on the allegation but his line was not available, so they called up his manager, Efe Omoreige who spoke exclusively on the issue “Well, I have not heard anything from the organizers of the show that R.Kelly disclaimed Tuface, so I might not be able to respond to it. About the allegations that Tuface didn't record with R.Kelly, I will explain to you. Yes the duet was real. Tuface recorded with R.Kelly but not in the same studio. The met but couldn't achieve being in the studio at the same time because of their tight schedule. R.Kelly did his own part and sent it to Tuface and that is all about it. Tuface didn't perform at the show because he was already engaged elsewhere. We were contacted for the show, but we were already booked to be in Benin . You don't expect Tuface to neglect a show he has been paid for to convince people that he knows R.Kelly”

It is time we start doing thing in the normal way and stop leaving live as if we are goats, cows and dogs.
this idea of ''WHO B ROBERT KELLY SELF, ABEG 2BABA CARRY GO HIM NO FYN OR BETTER PASS U'' thing should stop and we should start facing issures as they come. If this is true, then it is a very shamefull thing to happen to an artist, but i still think this should be investigated very well and see that the outcome of the incestigation is made public so that other could learne from it.

Honestly, am not happy about all this bad publicity about TUBABA. I am not supporting or wanna crucify him on any of these allegations. Although my personal findings and cross-emination of some of the reports about him has indicted him while some have vindicated him. Having said that, i think all i just wanna do is just to give TUBABA some word of advice:

TUBABA, no question about it, you are a successful musical ariste and i pray it continues. However, try and be straight with your fans in everything you do as per your music. You don't need to go foreign either through concert or Callabo wise. Just continue to give us your music in the Nija way. We love it the Nija way. THIS IS ONE MAJOR REASON WHY YOUR ALBUM 'UNSTOPPABLE' flopped. You wanted your music to sound foreign. Remember, you started everything right here in Nija and in Nija way. Thats why your brother FAZE is still doing it right (Giving us the Plantashun style R & B still in a Nija way).

I have always been a very argent follower of Nija musical artiste and i have always cautioned myself believing STORIES (either on TV, Newspapers, Internet, Social websites e.t.c) written about them. What i do is to follow events and untill am able to know 'something close to the truth' about stories written about them.

Me i no dey carry yeye stories about about any of our Nija Arstiste becos 90% of these stories are usually written or sponsored by bad belle person or fellow musical artistes. My recent investigation even revealed that some of these musical artiste are also used to some of these Nija social websites, they registered themselves with some any username that sound appeal to them and thus use such site as a arena to instigate their fellow 'making it' artiste.

This life sef na waooooo. Anyway, if you dey do anything for life and u no get somebody wey go jealous you inform of criticism (as its happening now in Nija music industry) that means wat ure doing its not GOOD or YOU ARE NOT MAKING REMARKABLE PROGRESS IN THAT THING YOU ARE DOING. Therefore, me i wan enemy for the work wey i dey do toooooooooooo.
