    I watched this interveiew on mute and all I can say is, it makes me like her.

    She’s got a personality and she isnt shy about it. I think she also has a good heart, which I love the most about her.

    The lie that some of us CHRISTIANS believe especially our celebrities is that Holy God is the one blessing the works of our hands even when the very work itself does NOT Glorify HIS Holy Name and in most cases are carnal.
    Yes We sometimes fall short of HIS Glory but should we associate the HOLY LORD with our Unholiness?(the lost souls are also observing)
    Why say that God has blessed you in business when you cheat your customers?
    Why thank God for that husband or wife when you did not ask HIM in the first place to choose for you?
    AND WHY DO OUR CELEBRITIES always say BABA GOD and attribute their success to HIM all the time in their music videos PLAGUED with half Naked women and characterised with hedonism?
    It is Just a bit Bold and Ignorant. Thank God for the MERCIFUL and GRACIOUS BLOOD of JESUS CHRIST.
    Lord forgive me in any way I’m also guilty of this and forgive us all.

    So the interview was going good until she started talking about Genevieve and Omotola’s music career.I wonder what gives her the impression that she’s better than them. Tonto has not talent whatsoever and all that keeps her ‘relevant’ is her attitude and determination to stay relevant or get noticed! So she should just keep doing her and not criticize anyone ‘cos she is really not in a position to.

    If you notice in her interview, once they started talking about Wizkid, she stopped making eye contact with the interviewer when she was answering the questions. one can easily tell she is sooo lying.

    her song is really nothing to write home about…………….but honestly tonto dike is really talented…..her voice is so natural and if many are given the opportunity….more stars would be out there………………the same with mercy johnson and ini……all of this ladies are really doing a great job at their level…….they are able to travel abroad….they drive big cars…..own investments……….most people at their age cannot even get a visa to south africa….tonto is a graduate of petrochemical engineering…..she has hit fame……what else can one desire in life…the good thing is that the better part of nollywood is still coming….i believe 10yrs from now there would be a stronger and better nollywood………

    As for Tonto…… U certainly took Rita Dominic’s cheap roles and forced her to up her game, i see dat…. But talking about Gene n Omo-T’s (non-existent) music careers was just WRONGGGGG!!! Haba….even a fly dat followed d corpse to d grave is wiser dan dat! Anyways dat said- If i had to compare music to music- Omo T first, You 2nd n Gene is last…(seriously wat was she thinking singing ‘i go jump, i go shout, i will scratch… bla bla bla b4 i give u my fist…bla bla bla m ga-eme gi many many things…’ —really???
