Nigeria born international music star, Tuface Idibia got almost everyone at Planet One, Lagos-Nigeria reeling with uncontrollable laughter last night when he confesses that “I am a good footballer”
Tuface who was trying to impress, Austin ‘Jay Jay’ Okocha, Nigeria’s international football star in whose honour the event was being organised by Tracia Esiegbe’s Bold Faces International, got more than he bargained in the hands of the audience immediately he said he is indeed good with the round leather game.
Okocha was not the only footballer at the event. The likes of Joseph Yobo, John Utaka, Abbey George, Obafemi Martins and Julius Aghaowa were also at the event to celebrate with Okocha, who has just retired from the Super Eagles, Nigeria’s national team.Okocha’s contract with Hull City in United Kingdom was also not renewed as well.
Someone screamed: Hmm…Tu baba! Who says you are not a good footballer after all, only you can score three goals at the same time”
Another person said: “Super striker. Small time, you will produce a team of 11 players from your bedroom football”
Another person describe Tuface as a super footballer after all he plays for Pero United, Annie Macaulay FC and Sumbo…!
