Stop Calling me Tu-baba Wife:
Nigerian singer Tu-baba wife Annie Idibia, has revealed that she prefers to be called by her name instead of being called Tubaba’s wife.
Annie disclosed this in an interview where she spoke about her career and marriage.
“Quite tough! This year started for me. I spent the first three (3) months of this year in the hospital with my sick father who has been sick for a while. Though am actually closer to my mother than my father because she raised us single-handedly. Since he was sick we had to rally round him, he is still my father.”
“I suffered growing up with only my mother. It really affected my life and and I do not want my children to face the agony of not having both parents together because it wasn’t easy for us. Right now, the way the world is,
unlike in our days, children are more enlightened than we were.The pressure would be harder on the children from broken homes right now. I will not allow my children to ever experience that.”
Talking about her career, she stated;
“I got pregnant after I got married, I had a baby, I took a break from my career because and had to get used to the new life. I did not do any movie for about three (3) years. It has been a problem that am being addressed as Tu-baba’s wife instead of Annie the actress.”
“Believing that I have successfully been able to differentiate and identify my brand as Annie Idibia the actress/career woman and Annie Idibia the wife/mother. I like being called Annie and not Tu-baba’s wife. I dislike that because I am my own person and have worked hard to structure my career and brand. Therefore, should be respected and identified on that basis.”
