Music star Innocent Idibia, popularly called Tuface, has thanked Nigerians for supporting the #IstandWithNigeria protest in spite of the fact that he backed out. Recall the protests held on Monday in Lagos, Abuja and other parts of the country. 2face was expected to lead the nationwide march, but pulled out some hours before the commencement of the protest. Breaking his silence on Tuesday, in a video he shared on his Instagram page, the music star said, “I will like to thank you all for the messages and solidarity. I watched with tears in my eyes as Nigerians came out to speak up and protest on the street, on social media, on television and radio stations.
“I watched as Nigerians demonstrated that no one voice is louder than the other. I also watched as people called me a coward but I am happy I am a coward who spoke out and I will always continue to do so. I watched as many of you defied all odds to come out to tell the government, that you deserve better lives. I’m grateful to everybody that lent his or her voice, when I lost mine. You guys are the real heroes. I’m happy you came out and I’m happy you came out peacefully.”
