IKEJA, Lagos, Nigeria – Celebrated Nollywood actor, Tonto Dike says she will soon drag her husband to court. Tonto Dike and her husband, Olakunle Churchill currently live apart, following allegation of domestic violence.
Tonto had accused her husband of abusing her domestically, while her husband believes Tonto is the one abusing him domestically.
But speaking on Channels Television at the weekend, Tonto who also runs a foundation for the indigent said she has put into motion a process to drag her husband to court but that it is taking some time. She did not mention the reason, but we gathered that it is related to domestic violence and divorce.
“I am just about moving forward, dumping every weight that has held me backwards for a very long time and just being successful as much as I can. So whether you believe me or not I don’t care. My name is Tonto Dikeh. I am a domestic violence victim, I am a survivor! I can’t change that”, she said.
Tonto Dike said she is actually known as a very strong woman and is striving hard to maintain that status. For her, being a strong woman is something inspiring, especially for people who may not have the grace to go through her ordeal.
But looking forward, Tonto Dike wants people to see her better side , which is giving to the needy, that’s my passion.
“That’s my life because when you talk about Tonto Dikeh, I am big about giving. I have said this a lot of time, before I got into entertainment business, I used to be so born-again. I was a member of a church that was big on giving.
“So I got that doctrine from there and I have been running with it for so long. So Philanthropy is something that has been in me. I want people to know that part”, she said.
