Nollywood actress Tonto Dikeh has replied to a lady who accused her of using her failed marriage with Olakunle Churchill to mislead young women on social media.
An Instagram user identified as louchee_bae had faulted Tonto Dikeh’s post praising her politician husband Prince Kpokpogri for being an answered prayer after playing the fatherly role during her son’s graduation.
The lady said Tonto Dikeh revealed that being alone is unhealthy and openly admitted that a man is her head and her son needs a father figure in his life, a narrative that she has often rubbished.
The lady questioned what happened to the ideology that Tonto Dikeh has been selling to young women, thereby pushing many women to sadness, hence she should apologise for misleading them.
Responding to this, Tonto Dikeh rubbished the lady’s words as she questions when has teaching women to speak for themselves and preaching against domestic violence became a wrong thing.

The Instagram user wrote: Tonto dear, you can see for yourself that you don’t need to mislead other young women with the issues around your former marriage…Now you are openly admitting that a man is your head and your son needs a father figure in his life.
So what happened to the ideology you have been selling to other women? If you know how many women that you pushed into sadness Tonto, you should’ve first of all started with an apology.
You have just revealed that being alone is not healthy at all. I’m yet to understand why a lot of women condemn men and relationships once a particular one did not favour them.
That’s why I agreed with Toke a wise woman. Now, this is a food of thought for other women, When a bitter woman comes on social media to get mad over her failed relationship or marriage, just ignore her, don’t let it put fears in you and continue to wish yourself the best.
