Annie Macaulay-Idibia, a proud wife to one the best Nigerian musicians Tuface Idibia, will never forget her humble beginnings despite the massive wealth she has acquired in life.
Annie is a Nigeria model, actress and media personality.
In 2009, she was nominated for The Best Supporting Actress category at The Best of Nollywood Awards.
However, it wasn’t until 2016 that she clinched The Fast Rising Actress trophy at the African Entertainment Legend Awards. She has featured in movies such as Beautiful Monster, Obiageli: The Sex Machine, Morning after Dark, Unconditional, First Family, White Chapel, Pleasure and Crime etc.
The 32-year-old was born in Ibadan, Oyo state, Nigeria, but she’s a native of Eket in Akwa Ibom state.
Annie appeared in her husband’s music video for the popular song African Queen. She contested at the Queen of All Nations Beauty Pageant where she was crowned a runner-up.
She read Computer Science and Theater Arts graduate from Lagos State University and the University of Lagos respectively.
The mother-of-two and wife of a top Nigerian celebrity recently took to social media and told fans the untold story of her life, disclosing everything about her poor childhood. She also explained how she lost a brother in those days.
No one would have believed that she sold pepper-soup with her mother to make ends meet, but she says it’s true. Life gave her lemons and she made lemonade out of every damn one. Perhaps, you’ll find her story inspiring.
