Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh wants to set the records straight.
For those who assumed she was married to Obasanjo’s nephew, Olakunle Churchill, this is her revelation.
Tonto Dikeh’s clarification came after a portal on Instagram, ‘Celebrity_Kid’ shared a photo of Tonto Dikeh’s son, King Andre, sitting on Obasanjo’s lap while his father Olakunle Churchill watched excitedly. The photo came with a caption which claimed the kid was spending time with his grandfather.
Then, Tonto Dikeh called out the blogger for misrepresenting her son’s image and wrote:
“But I wldnt have you using my sons image for a Lie..He has 2grand fathers,One is late and Mine is very much alive..
I was as ignorant as you until I found the truth so pls pls pls and pls again I’m a mother and I wldnt tolerate this…
Thanks and God bless you & your business?Excuse me that’s my son and that’s not his grandfather in any way.Baba is a great man and has been wonderful to me and my son but Unfortunately we have no blood relationship with Baba.” (sic)
The post has been taken down.
King Andre’s dad, Olakunle Churchill, is said to be a nephew of former President Olusegun Obasanjo. His father is said to be the son of the former President’s younger brother.
This report is also coming after Tonto Dikeh’s ex-husband, Olakunle Churchill took to his IG page to wish former President Olusegun Obasanjo a happy birthday. The throwback photos of himself with his son and Obasanjo, which he shared on his page came with a caption which suggested that former President Olusegun Obasanjo is his father, probably what ‘Celebrity_kid’ misinterpreted.
The caption read:
“A FATHER IS SOMEONE YOU LOOK UP TO, NO MATTER HOW TALL YOU GROW. I CELEBRATE YOU TODAY AS YOU ADD ONE TO YOUR AGE, HAPPY BIRTHDAY BABA,I WISH YOU ETERNAL LIFE IN CHRIST.SHALOM !”
When things were good between Tonto Dikeh and Churchill, she made everyone realise that she was married to an Obasanjo’s son and in all interviews she granted, she mentioned the fact that she is OBJ’s daughter-in-law.
Now that she has revealed her side of the story, mum has been the reaction of her ex husband.
