Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh, has just apologized to her colleague Mercy Johnson for calling her daughter Purity a ‘witch’ after Mercy resumed acting 4 months after giving birth to her first child, Purity, in US back in 2013.
You recall that back in 2013, after Mercy delivered her baby Purity in US, Tonto had blasted Mercy who had come back to Nigeria 4 months later to continue with her acting career.Tonto Dikeh (who at that time had no chill) called Mercy all sort of names, claiming Mercy’s husband pushed her immediately into acting because they were broke.
At first the actress cum singer, Tonto tweeted ‘Nollywood Bridez marry horribly** #SHEBA#…Wen n if I give birth,God plz provide mii wit a husband dat can provide 4uz,Not 1 dat wld send mii bck to actin 2monthz after I born 2Huzzle’
Many who believed the tweet was referring to Mercy Johnson engaged Tonto in a twitter war – and then Tonto dropped the bigger shell as she tweeted again,‘Every1 who comes to ma tl to Rant Abt ur FOOL MJ is a bigger baztard Dan SHE is coz I never cald no Dam’z Name**F*ck U**Like that wasn’t hurtful enough, she took a very direct shot at Mercy Johnson:“Dam Lozt her Name,U gonno Uze mii az A come backNaaahhhhh go Nurze Ur Witch Dam** #StayBlessed”Mercy in a reply later on during an interview when asked how she felt when she heard that Tonto talked mean about her, said:
‘It was a friend who called to tell me a colleague in Nollywood is questioning my decision to go back to go back to acting soon. I only asked her a question, I said: ‘Did the actress mention my name?’ she said no. But my fans are insinuating that she was talking about me, so they fired back at her with insult and all.I am a moving train by the special grace of God in heaven. I will continue to do good for myself and my fans who have stood by me all these years. I have no beef with nobody. I am a cool person and i hate and fear troubles. I always pray for those that wish for my downfall.”Read the apology Tonto just made to Mercy:Good morning world Since I have your undivided attention I better make good use of it and not miss the blessing in this [email protected] Ever since I had my baby I have been reminded constantly about an ill statement I made about one of your kids a very long time ago.
