USAfrica: Tuface, P Square and Mo Chedda rule at MTV Africa awards

Special to USAfrica and CLASSmagazine, Houston

Tuface (Innocent Idibia), the multi-talented, multilingual and charismatic young man who sang the globally enchanting song  “African Queen” and “Implication” has won, a few hours ago, MTV Africa’s 2010 artist of the year and best male performer. He also has many collabos with other Nigerian, African and international artistes. TuFace, also known as 2Face, TuBaba, etc thanked many and wished “One-love to Nigeria” at the MTV event in Lagos, Nigeria, where performed live.

Tuface speaks and sings his native Idoma language, Igbo (where he attended college at the IMT Enugu), Yoruba (where he mainly resides) and in English.

He has been projected internationally since 2008 by our media platforms of USAfrica, PhotoWorks.TV and CLASSmagazine. Related pictures from his interview wt USAfrica and CLASSmagazine Founder Chido Nwangwu click here

USAfrica’s Publisher Chido Nwangwu notes that “Tuface represents the best in contemporary African music. I still regard him as Africa’s most popular hip-r-n-b and Afro-pop superstar and singer. The major point is that the performance skills of Nigerian artistes and actors have grown exponentially as they are making giant strides beyond the limitations of the Nigerian infrastructure and gaining respect and money around Africa and the world.”

The soulful twins P Square took home the honor of Best Group of 2010. Their world famous hits include Do Me and several recent ones. The position for best new artist was lifted by the creative, lyrical young rapper, another Nigerian known by the stage name of Mo Cheddah. Newcomer Sasha grabbed the coveted spot of best female performer.
