Osagie is joined by Dennis Peter, a culture journalist from the Native Magazine, and Chuks Odoh, an A&R specialist, in a new episode of A Music in time titled The Breakdown: Face 2 Face by Tuface Idibia. In the wake of TuFace’s birthday celebrations on Friday the 18th, Osagz and his guests break down the versatility on the aforementioned album by one of Africa’s most prolific music artists.
The session relives the year 2004 also known as the beginning of the second wave in the Nigerian music industry; the disputes between and among the members of the revolutionary group, Plantation Boyz, and the progression of TuFace since his solo album. The outdated perception of not rating an artist because they didn’t write their songs is outrightly discarded when we hear some of the old favorites off the album like Nfana Ibaga, Ole, and Holy Pass.
Touching on all the emotional notes of TuFace’s still-relevant sound, we remember how evergreen African Queen is and how it launched Nigerian music to the world. We also remember the late genius Producer OJB Jezreel AKA Jigga and his exemplary contributions to Nigerian music. Without a doubt, TuFace Idibia has acquired legend status, delivering beautiful, heartfelt music, influencing pop culture, inspiring a new generation of artistes, and staying true to the music.
