In a moving tribute to his dad, Tuface said he was assured that his father was now resting in the bossom of the Lord and he hoped to meet him over there.
His words, “My father, the most humble and kindest I have ever met. My dad was such a gentleman, it was unbelievable. I can go on about my dad and I will still not have enough to describe how peaceful he was. He fought till the end but God knows the best.
“To put things plain and simple, my father was a good man and my consolation is knowing that he is definitely in heaven where we hope to meet him one day. Mummy and all of us will miss you dearly”, he said amid sobs and tears.
Similarly, Tuface’s elder brother, Stephen described his late dad as a true and and perfect gentleman.
Stephen in his tribute said they were sure he was resting in peace in heaven.
The late Pa Idibia was survived by an aged wife, four children, among whom is music star, Innocent Ujah Idibia.
It was also observed that the Idibias opted for a low key ceremony as no showbiz star was present to mourn with their colleague, Tuface.
