Twitter Personality: Victor Ibe Chukwu

by Ifreke Inyang [@ifreke]

His real name is *drum roll* Victor Ibe Chukwu! But he is more popular amongst his peers and most especially on Twitter as Tufab (2FAB – Too Fabolous And Bad). What many tweeps may know is that he is working on producing his movie which will be released shortly, as well as his mixtape. He’s getting the necessary attention not just on Twitter, but off it. He was nominated for the Dynamix Awards twice and is currently nominated twice for Peak Awards 2011 for Most Influential and Most Sought After Male. A self confessed jonzer, member of WFBC , World Famous Balling Crew, and  deep thinker with a crazy sense of humour, Tufab tells us what it’s been like on Twitter for him.

How did you get on Twitter?

I got on Twitter with the help of a friend, Elma in 2009. She helped me thoroughly understand the network because it was pretty difficult with the following and followers thing (Where are we going gannn?!?!). And it’s amazing that she could not keep up. I was already bored with Facebook and decided to try it and it has turned out to be one of my best social networks so far.

Who would you say is your favourite tweep?

Well, I’ve got a crazy sense of humour.  So it’s really sometimes difficult for a tweep to cheer me up because of the way I think and my kind of tweets. I love to be sarcastic.  So I admire @Ebuka when it comes to that. For Trending topics, @piper606 kills them for me. Then for deep tweets and thoughts, it’s @saucekibaba. So three of them are my favourite tweeps. It’s not as if i love them most because of those reasons.  I love all my followers equally.

Is there any particular tweet you’ll never forget? Tell us about it.

I tweet random, crazy and funny stuffs from different angles. So it’s hard to choose just one as a favourite. Having said so, I love these two tweets though:

1: It’s Not Who Votes That Counts, It’s Who Counts The Votes.

2: Say No To Racism, Support The Return Of Black & White TV

Have you had any embarrassing/memorable experience on Twitter? If yes, what happened? Embarrassing?  YES!  One of my DM’S leaked one time and it was meant to be confidential. I simply followed up with my next tweet making it seem like I intended to tweet that…  as a badt guysss! 😀  Memorable?  Nothing special yet because I enjoy every day on Twitter I flow with tweeps well. Maybe one day when I trend worldwide then I’ll consider that as memorable.

What are the downsides of being on Twitter?

When some tweeps just create an account to hate on you instead of trying to be creative and share with others, it’s so annoying at times.  But it’s good because then you know where you need to make corrections to become a great person while they only excel by looking for the faults in your greatness.

What are the upsides?

It helps you reach across to people on the other side, share things and know your favourite celeb more by interacting with them. You’ll get to make friends and meet other people you admire if they are on the network and probably have the chance to meet them too if you package yourself well. You also get updated in seconds with just one tweet you read. So it’s a big world of fun, news and gbagauns.

Most people have the impression that you’re quite troublesome on Twitter. What do you have to say about that?

Yeah, I am troublesome but those most people have loads of trouble themselves. If they’re cool with me, I’m cool with them but if anyone tries to get silly, I’ll play the silly game with them!  I understand Twitter and know how to go about it when anyone comes around my tweet with good or bad intentions.

Do you follow back readily? Why?

I usually only follow tweeps that are interesting to keep my TL alive but lately I’ve had lots of love from tweeps and it will be really unfair if I don’t show them love right back.  And I guess for most of them, the only way to do that is to follow back.  I still follow people ‘responsibly’ though. Not people that have fried eggs as avatar with only three tweets per month.

What would possibly make you close your Twitter account?

Only when GOD appears in my dream and tells me that I have to close it to make heaven or I’m given an offer of $10m to close it.  If not, YOU’RE ON A LONG THING! #GBAM
