But the love birds literally pulled the carpet off the feet of such ambitious fans when they tied the nuptial knots in a very private ceremony somewhere in Lagos on Feb. 14, 2012. Many tongues haven’t stopped wagging ever since that ‘surprise package.’
An unperturbed TuFace recently explained why the wedding was kept a secret. In a meeting with LIF&BEAT, he said, “Annie is my first and true love. I had known her before I met the other women in my life. As a Christian, I had to marry one woman and it just had to be Annie.
“We had a secret wedding after we had reached an agreement and amicable understanding about the mothers of my children. It was a tough decision to make, one of the toughest in my life.
“I secretly married her because I have so much respect for my other babies’ mothers; I cannot afford to hurt their feelings with a sudden society wedding with Annie, not now. I chose her above the others because she has been through it all with me.”
On Nov. 14, Annie marked her birthday and she was treated to a surprise soiree at Rumours Nightclub in Ikeja, G.R.A.
As if that was not enough, TuFace seized the opportunity to shower his ‘African Queen’ with expensive gifts that included a brand new car and glittering diamond jewellery.
