A Nigerian Catholic priest serving in Malawi, Fr Kelvin Ugwu has reacted to the crisis rocking the marriage of a music legend, 2face Idibia, also called 2baba.
NEWSMEN recalls that 2baba’s wife, Annie Idibia had called him out for sleeping over at his ex-lover, Pero’s house, a move which triggered arguments between her and the brother in-law, Uduak on social media.
Reacting to the saga which has gained attention from concerned Nigerians since Friday morning, the renowned Catholic Priest blamed Annie for escalating an issue meant to be handled privately.
According to him, the social media ‘war’ was not part of the vows they took on the altar during their marital bliss, stressing that readers of her posts and those reacting on same medium, have no capacity to solve the problems.
Reverend Kelvin made the remark in a post on his verified Facebook page.
The post reads, “Annie and Tuface’s Marriage Before Social Media Court: Why is everyone talking about the marriage of Annie and Tuface? Why are some of their ugly stories trending? Why are people taking sides either for Annie or for Tuface?
“Simple. . . Someone decided to carry a private matter to social media as if part of the vows they took in church was to update social media people the stories coming out from their bedroom.

“Tuface met Annie when she was 15. Even before he shot the Africa Queen video in 2004, they were already dating. These two know themselves more than whatever anyone may want to analyze. They will still know how to sort their issues themselves.
“In life and in marriage, there are times when you will surely feel like shouting and screaming for all to hear. There are times you just wish to report everything to social media. . . But from experience, social media will increase the problem instead. People don’t really care. Even if they do, there is no how they will know the whole story between you both.
“In fact, there are those who are just waiting to use your story to catch cruise and get traffic. Some influencers who have never been on your shoes will paint you with a colour even Michaelangelo never knew existed.
“We can understand with Annie on what she is passing through, but at the end, you still need some level of discipline and emotional maturity to know the right place to take your problem to and be helped adequately. This is why we have trained counsellors, psychologists, lawyers or trusted friends”.
