There is definitely a God here are pictures of Tuface Recuperating in the hospital. According to Nigeria village square
“TufaceIdibia, the multiple award-winning hip-hop artiste who was attacked by gun men in Lagos on his return from the United Kingdom last week is responding to treatment and is fine contrary to media reports that he is still in a critical condition.
While still lying on his hospital bed in a private hospital in Victoria Island , Idibia thanked all his fans for their concern over his misfortune.
Speaking from his hospital bed, the iconic singer who was shot by armed bandits on Thursday October 4 thanked God for sparing his life.
“I thank God. I know it’s not luck. The bullet could have hit me somewhere more dangerous. So I really thank God, and I’m really trying to understand what he’s trying to tell me with this incident,” he said.
Reminiscing on the sad incident which happened along the Oshodi-Mile 2 Expressway, he explained that he was not aware they people that approached them that night came with an evil intention.
“We didn’t know it was robbers. We even thought it was a car trying to ram into us. It was not until I saw the gun, and heard the shot that I realised what they wanted. So I told my guy, let’s find our way o… these guys mean business. I didn’t even know the bullet hit me. It was while we were running, that my left leg started failing me, that I realised what had happened
However here is my favorite quote in Tuface’s words
“As far as I’m comfortable where I am, I’ve got no hassles. Whatever will be will be. I might be in the US and be hit by a stray bullet. Anything good or evil can happen to you anywhere’, he said philosophically. I have my business here so I’m not planning to relocate. I’ll travel anytime I have to, and come back home. There’s no place like home. But I want my people to be more positive and honest. Violence does no one any good.”
Good to know he is keeping positive wouldn’t you say?
I must say I am one of his blog fans, what people do not realize is while I do love fashion, I love and enjoy technology so I guess that makes me a girlgeek? Actually earlier on I was part of the girl geeks community. Dare seems very down to earth which is definitely a good attribute to have.
Any how back to the topic, so Dare got married in vegas and you can read all about it here.
Congratulations are certainly in order wouldn’t you say?
When Bill Gates applied for a visa for a recent trip to Nigeria, his paperwork hit a snag.
