Nollywood’s queen of controversy, Tonto Dikeh, who is now Mrs. Churchill, has confessed that she has given up on her controversial lifestyle because she is now a married woman.
She tells Channels TV, how she intends to handle the situation whenever she’s faced any form of allegations from the media
“I am a very straightforward person. I am like a book. I am just very open. I think the controversial part of me is something that the media has put upon me. It’s just unfortunate that sometimes I help them play that role because of anger. I get so angry sometimes and I help them play that role.
But never again. I have learnt a lot. Like I said before what marriage has done for me. Marriage has changed my perspective. Now, nobody can push me to being controversial anymore this interview. Sometimes, I handled it really badly, and sometimes handle it really good. I will say badly because I responded to negativity and that only just gave an approval that she is a controversial person But I am actually a very sweet loving and godly person.
‘Controversy is actually very far from me. I wouldn’t’ say that I have not experienced controversy from a very early age. I have. Even in secondary school when everybody thought I was the bad girl meanwhile I was the only virgin out of my school .Although I just like to hang around men rather than female and they just have this idea in their head. Oh I like wearing short skirts rather than long skirts. I have always had that thing with misconception. Only those who are very close to me understand me. I have been very stubborn about people understanding me. Like I don’t care if you understand me,” she said.
