Nothing Causes A Fight Between Me and Tuface – Sound Sultan

Ace Nigerian singer, Sound Sultan has revealed in a chat with Saturday Beats how he connects with fellow musician, Tuface Idibia in the most awesome manner.

While speaking,  the veteran singer who has been in the music business for decades now revealed how he settles whatever misunderstanding he has with Tuface amicably and without grudges.

He said;

“The funny thing is that there is nothing that causes a fight between Tuface and me. If we have a misunderstanding, we make fun of it and settle it. That is the beauty of our friendship.

Whenever we have a problem, we make fun of it and resolve the issue. We argue and it is more of a hobby for us but we realise that we must not always agree on an issue.

We have never had a quarrel over women or music. When it comes to music, we connect greatly with our inspirations. We connect greatly.

Money has never been an issue between me and anybody. It is not that I do not like money but I do not let it define who I am or erase some things about my personality. It is very important to uphold some things and stick by them. But for money, it will only come and go”, Sound Sultan said.

Speaking briefly on his relationship with Tuface, the iconic singer said:

“Tuface and I started in the music industry a long while ago and when we started, there weren’t too many of us in the game.

We both started in FESTAC and by virtue of that, we were always together. Back then, it was just us living our lives. We grew to understand how we connected on different levels. Nothing can stop that kind of friendship.”

Tuface Says COSON Members Are Under Attack As He Petitions NCC

Nigerian Music Legend, Tuface Idibia has called on the intervention of the Nigeria Copyright Commission (NCC) to the ongoing Copyright Society of Nigeria (COSCON) crisis.

In a petition addressed to the NCC, the singer complained that Efe Omorogbe and some other COSON board members were “being harassed, and intimidated’ by the police. Omorogbe, however, is the longtime manager of the ‘African Queen’ singer.

This he said is in regards to the tussle of power between Tony Okoroji and Efe Omorogbe, who are both laying claim to the leadership of the body.

The petition which was addressed to Alam Ezekude, director-general of NCC, was copied to the Ibrahim Idris, the inspector-general of police, Senate President Bukola Saraki, Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo and President Muhammadu Buhari.

It reads;

“It is quite unfortunate and disheartening that a simple call for accountability and transparency has degenerated into relentless media attack, harassment and intimidation of the group of people who made the call.

“The personal interest of a few should not supersede the collective interest of generality of members and overall well being of the society.

“I will like to implore you to use your good office to engage the Inspector General of Police with a view to setting the records straight and reversing the embarrassing and dangerous scenario where Mr Efe Omorogbe and Mr Joel Ajayi, chairman and members of the commission-recognised board acting well under the directive of the regulator, are now being harassed, intimidated, demonised and prosecuted by a sister government agency – The Nigerian Police Force.

“COSON is formed and built by the collective efforts of like-minded industry stalwarts, and it will be a shame to see all of the hard work that has gone into building the society, go down the drain.

“Our CMO is under siege and our commonwealth is threatened by Chief Tony Okoroji and his agents who for personal ends, continue to demonstrate deep contempt for regulation and the call for accountability.”

Meanwhile, one of the director on the board of COSON, Audu Maikori recently advised Okoroji to let go of power or risk being “disgraced” like Robert Mugabe, Zimbabwe’s ousted president.

Tuface Slams President, Muhammad Buhari Over Non-chalant Attitude Towards Insecurity In Nigeria

Tuface has expressed his displeasure over the nonchalant attitude of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration to secure lives of Nigerians against the terrorism activities of Boko Haram and the deadly Fulani herdsmen.

 

Tuface who hails from Benue State, which is one of the major locations of the herdsmen and farmers’ clashes told Punch newspaper that the government is not doing much about the situation except to always, ‘condemn the killings.’

 

According to him “The Federal Government is not doing anything at all, nothing has been done and as we speak, the herdsmen can attack anytime anyday. They would move on then the Federal Government would condemn the killing; that is all they do, to condemn the killing but nothing is being done.

 

“I feel terrible when I read about the senseless killings that daily take place in Benue. It is not about my state alone. It happens in other states as well and I sympathize with Nigerians. These people are just being lawless and the law enforcement agencies are doing nothing about it.

 

“As far as I can see, I have not seen any serious effort to address this issue. Nigerians are tired and angry but because we are peace-loving, that is why Nigeria has not exploded and that is what these men are taking for granted.

 

They know we would not do anything. Their case is like that of a man that keeps stepping on the tail of a tiger; one day he would see the trouble he is looking for,” he said.

 

He also went further to talk about the people defending themselves instead of sitting back awaiting help from the state governor. He said;

 

“I agree that the people should arm themselves against future attacks because if your people are being killed and the government is not doing anything, you would not sit in one place like a sitting duck.

 

You would have to arm yourself so that you would not fall victim to the attacks again. It is the only logical thing to do,” the singer said.

 

He further condemned the government for suggesting the idea of amnesty for the members of the Boko Haram. According to him,

 

“There is something that I do not understand, there are so many Nigerians who have graduated from school and they are finding it difficult to make a living; they are trying to make a positive impact but the government is not helping but it is those who kill and maim their fellow men that the government wants to grant amnesty, it just does not make sense.

 

“It is a very shameful situation and it means that the government has accepted defeat. They are sending a clear message that they cannot fish out the culprits. It just shows that they have accepted defeat. There is no other logical explanation,” he said.
