‘Look for other ways to stay relevant.’ Tonto Dikeh’s relative puts her on blast for claiming she grew up poor
Nollywood stars, from Mercy Johnson to Ramsey Nouah, appear to be making the ‘from rags to riches’ story something very, very sexy. And actress Tonto Dikeh was not about to be left out. Below is a touching and emotional story she shared with her fans two days ago. In talking about her struggles before the fame, Tonto claimed she used to beg for food and clean rooms for N200. How touching, right?
Well, someone says ‘Wrong!’ Some lady who is related to the actress (perhaps her sister?) is claiming she lied. Read both Tonto’s revelation and the strange woman’s accusatory tweets after the cut.
