Innocent Ujah Idibia, best known as Tuface (2face) Idibia is a Nigerian singer-songwriter, actor and record producer, a member of the defunct R&B/hip hop group Plantashun Boyz which comprises 2Face, Faze,and Black Faze. He is currently one of the most popular artistes on the African music scene. More on 2face Biography below.

2face Idibia was born in Jos, Plateau State and hails from Okpokwu local government area and from the Idoma ethnic group in the southern part of Benue State, Nigeria.

He attended Mount Saint Gabriel’s Secondary School in Makurdi, Benue State. He schooled briefly in the Institute of Management & Technology, IMT, Enugu, one of the country’s foremost higher institute of learning where he did his preliminary National Diploma course in Business Administration. Though, he didn’t finish but would hone his skills in music by performing in shows and parties organised by the IMT and some other schools like Enugu State University of Science & Technology, Enugu (ESUT) and University of Nigeria Enugu Campus (UNEC).

His major breakthrough in the IMT was composing and singing the jingles in the famous radio show GB Fan Club in Enugu State Broadcasting Services (ESBS) in 1996. He then relocated to Lagos and joined up with his ex-IMT mate BlackFace to form Plantashun Boyz. He started calling himself “2Face” in 1996. “The name to me just refers to the outside and inside: when you first see me you see the outside but when you get to know me, you see the inside” he said in an interview with the BBC.

His award winning hit track “African Queen” was used as the sound track of the 2006 comedy film, Phat Girlz. This made him even more recognized internationally.
