2face leads Campaign Against Fake Drugs

As part of activities to mark his 10th anniversary as an artiste, hip-hop star, Tuface Idibia has entered into partnership with Love Idoko’s Motivation Magazine, to stage a campaign against fake drugs in Benue State. The even billed for November 13, in Markurdi, the Benue State capital, will parade notable entertainers, who will be joining in the sensitisation campaign.


Idibia, who was recently appointed an Ambassador of the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC), will be using the platform to campaign against the menace of fake drugs that has been killing many innocent citizens of the state and beyond. The event will mark the artiste’s first public outing in his home state since his appointment by the agency.



For the first leg of the event, Tuface alongside other invited entertainers, Love Odoko-led Motivation Magazine team and NAFDAC team to be led by the DG, Dr. Paul Orhii, will tour major secondary schools in Markurdi, crating awareness among teenagers on the danger that fake drugs pose to human health.

The awareness tour will culminate into a night of music and comedy later in the evening, at the In-door Hall, Kontagora Complex, Makurdi, where participants will be thrilled buy the artistes. To be anchored by Nollywood actors, Desmond Elliot and Ada Ameh, the night of fun will feature artistes such as Gordons, I Go Dye, J Marttins, Bovi and others, who have already indicated interest to join Tuface in the campaign.


Speaking on the upcoming event, Love Idoko whose magazine is at the forefront of the planning, assured that her team is working round the clock to ensure a successful outing.

“We understand the importance of this event, so, we are taking it very serious. Though putting up major events such as this is a difficult task, we are not leaving any stone unturned in our effort to make the best out of this campaign. Our partnership with Tuface to mark his 10th year anniversary will surely become a reference point in Benue State as far as event management is concerned. So, everybody should look forward for great outing.”
