In February, Innocent Idibia, popularly known as Tuface, donated N3.5 million to the United Nations High Commission for Refugees to support its humanitarian activities in North-East that is ravaged by Boko Haram.
Not resting on this laudable effort, the popular music legend has again promised to donate proceeds of his new song to Refugees and Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) through the UNHCR Nigeria.
The African Queen crooner made this known when he visited the UNHCR office in Abuja as the chairman of the Tuface foundation.
He said that 60 percent of the proceeds of his song would go to refugees and IDPs.
Quoting Tuface, “I have decided to dedicate my time, resources and my voice to support the UNHCR in this massive endeavour of alleviating the sufferings of displaced persons.On the June 20th which is the world refugees’ day, I am going to be commissioning a song and this song will be monetized
“60 percent of the proceeds will be donated to the UNHCR to further its humanitarian effort to alleviate the plights of refugees and IDPs. We want people to join in this campaign by downloading the song to use it as their ringtones, caller back tones.
“This download, which would cost between N50 to N100, it’s an opportunity for every Nigerian to contribute in their own little way to the course of assisting displaced persons.”
