Popular artiste, Innocent Idibia, popularly known as TUFACE says he is glad that he spoke out despite eventually backing off a planned antigovernment protests on Monday.

Tuface was to lead nationwide demonstrations against economic crisis, but announced its cancellation hours before the scheduled march.

He cited “security concerns” after police warned him against going ahead with the demonstrations.

The protests went on nonetheless in Lagos, Abuja and Uyo, led by civil society groups and activists.

In an Instagram video post on Tuesday via his official handle @official2baba, Tuface said, “I watched with tears how Nigerians defied all odds to protest with #istandwithNigeria, it has shown that no voice is bigger than the other whether that of 2baba, security men or even any other person”.

He reacted to criticisms that have trailed his decision to back out at the last minute, saying he was unfazed by being branded a “coward” by some.

“I have read several opinions including being called a coward but I can say that I am glad that I am a coward who spoke up and will continue to speak up,” he said.

Tuface paid tributes to Nigerians who braved police threats and all odds to take part in the protests.

“I am glad you all lent your voice out when I lost my own, you guys were the true heroes,” he said.

    2face is not a coward. In his words,’the point I intend on making is not worth the life of any Nigerian’. It takes a humble and passionate person to say such. We thank God that no life was reported lost and people on both sides conducted themselves with maturity of purpose. But what he set out to do, he achieved even if he wasn’t there. The present administration got to know Nigerians are hettin restless with the status quo. Not all is the administration’s fault but we voted them in for a change of things, it is long in coming

    There are many other ways you can protest. SING about it!!! FELA did that and kids that didn’t know him knows his songs and what it means. In other words he fought the system with his songs and won. He’s still singing from his grave and his yesteryears songs are now open truth to everyone. Same is Bob Marley. You can protest with your lyrics, that will be more effective that a one day protest that will put life and properties in serious danger.
