Tonto Dikeh Opens Up After Being Accused Of Vowing Not To Marry Igbo
Tonto Dikeh and Churchill
Years back before marrying Churchill, Tonto was accused of saying that Igbo men are noisy and she cannot settle with any of them.
In an Instagram post on Monday morning, Tonto Dike said she never made such comment against her Igbo brothers, adding that she had not even opened a Facebook account when the comment credited to her was made.
She wrote, “I have heard and read a couple of times about this topic and I am actually totally shocked at this!
“I have never granted an interview saying such nonsense, I’m piratically from Igbo!
“I always said it years back that I didn’t have any Facebook account and that anything that time that came from Facebook under my name was not from me.
“I only just joined Facebook few years ago also I made a disclaimer 8 years ago on Twitter about this issue.
“Also as said by the invisible Tonto that I was raised by a poor father and had to sleep under bridges to make a living! Too bad.
“That’s far from the my case. I came from money and lived an average childhood with everything I ever needed at my feet, went to the best schools in my community!
“Don’t get deceived by the media. If I said it, I will boldly stand to it.
“No media house can make claim to this interview. So please, my people these are not my words. Enough is enough.”
