On Sunday, July 26, Tonto Dikeh, had an interview with a journalist, Dele Momodu where she revealed that she has forgiven her ex-husband, Olakunle Churchill for the sake of their child, King Andre.
Tonto Dikeh while speaking on the importance of forgiveness, said she forgives so she would not be stagnated in life, career, and other areas and that she has gotten to read the part of the bible where God said he wouldn’t forgive us if we do not forgive others.
She also stated that she forgives easily now but doesn’t like being provoked by the things a person does after she has forgiven such a person. Tonto Dikeh also spoke about her career as an actress where she said she has rejected some roles so she doesn’t get stereotyped.
Citing Pete Edochie as an example of an actor who has been stereotyped over the years, Tonto said she has often rejected the attempt by the movie industry to get her to always feature as a particular character.
She also spoke about her clash with law enforcement agents in Dubai last year. Hours after she revealed that she has forgiven her ex-husband, Olakunle Churchill, actress Tonto Dikeh has pointed out that she isn’t asking for forgiveness in return.
In a post she shared on her Instagram page this morning, the mum of one wrote
