Dear Azuka this is a formal apology to you and your profession and for what ever this post must have cost you,Thanks and have a blessed day.. @cutie_juls @instablog9ja #MAMABEAR #MAMAKING


Nollywood actress Tonto Dikeh, in the comment section of her Instagram page, called out her estranged husband Olakunle Churchill and journalist Azuka Ogujiuba of Media Room Hub implying that the journalist was allegedly paid the sum of 3 million Naira to carry out an interview.

A few weeks ago Churchill granted an exclusive tell-all interview with Azuka where he spoke in details about his marriage to Tonto, a few days later he flew his brother in from the UK, as well has his mother’s CSO to also be interviewed by Azuka.

Now Tonto is speaking up and saying one of the main reasons her family hasn’t come out to say anything is because they understand the value of family.

See her comment below.

      Shut up abeg. How is she disturbing you?
      And FYI, domestic violence also kills people so If you don’t want to read news about her, f%%k out of this website.

      @real Nigerian. Kilode. Yes, @Abby should have been more empathetic but hello your words are usually spiky on this website. You will be 50, 60, 70 and even more one day. Take it easy. Everything will be fine.

      Someone has to tell her the truth no matter how bitter. We all love Tonto Dike but she really has to stop at this time. She has said it all. If you know and love her pls beg her to stop.It is enough. Talk is cheap. The more she talks the more they try to drag her. Its already funny that almost everyone in the other camp has granted interview on same meaningless issue. We all know but she has to end it. The media is hungry for tales and she is feeding them to her family’s detriment. She needs to calm down for her own good and her son’s especially. Go tell her and stop shutting people up. Thats the easiest way to shut everyone up-being quiet.

      It is right to hear both sides. That is the proper thing to do. Tontoh if you were allowed to speak, your husband should be allowed to speak also. According to the book of Proverbs. 18:17, it is better to listen to both sides, same with court of law.

    Tonto, abeg let this matter rest biko. Una two get fault. You lied about buying the cars and gifts, and said he’s a broke ass. Where he take get N3million. He lied that he can never lay his hand on a woman, his ex sef do ‘yimu’ for that cos na big fat lie. Ok, we don hear the gist since una decide to air una dirty laundry on SM. Both of una need healing and you can only get that by getting help, a shrink/lifecoach maybe. You are showing us one thing by engaging in charity work but doing another by defending and attacking on SM. What confusion? Biko, get a therapist fast, there’s no need to be shy about getting help. You can speak to the likes of Lanre Olushola and caucus. Enough of this ping pong game. As for your experience, women suffer the most because you have to endure and put up with many of his shots. I feel your pain but your sanity is very important now for the sake of your baby. Concentrate on one thing. If it’s help, get it, if reconciliation, therapist are there to help too. Focus!!!!

    Thanks abby,when will this stop? Both parties are aggrieved and ready to tarnish each others image,but it’s tiring.

    But bia, you said the man was poor na and that you made him….where the 3 million comot from now?

    It yaff do, Tonto i sympathize with you but you need help. Where are her family members? Doesn’t she have a solid support system to help her cope?
    You said you found God and that your son brings you joy, try to find solace in both.
    Churchill this, ex-husband that! That guy don do you strong tin o!!!! See how you’re still dancing to his tune(s)!!!

    Lemme also sit and wait….maybe she go also reply me.

      She has already lost out as far as I am concerned, too much of everything is bad. She’s trying to cover something up, that’s why she talks this much

    Bella, why evil? She did not say “paid”. She said “offered”. Surely, there is a difference between paid and offered???? BN, correct yourself!

    The only truth in what the husband said is, You can only find Tonto on social media! Seriously, Gosh! This babe has the time to reply every single comment.

    Ok, we haff heard Tonto, can we move on already, Tonto needs mental help cos I wonder why she responds to everybody who is not on her side on social media. She should go and keep herself busy abeg. You have left the man, what more is there. If you want to divorce, go to court and stop fighting on social media. @ a real Nigerian, you are one of the most bitter people I have met, your bitterness oozes out of social media, you better go and get help. Depression is real and you seem depressed to me. I’m expecting your bitter reply as usual…hissss

    Anony…I feel you. I just don’t understand why Bella continues to post “ITS” ( REAL NIEGRIAN) messages. If you disagree with ITS point of view, IT will attack like a wounded animal . Are people not entitled to opposing views. I know Bella will not post my comment. But if it is ITS curses and insults they will post it.

    tonto i sympathize with you whether you are a victim or not but as a woman who has found herself in such a messy situation. Please do not reply everything on IG and stop tarnishing your husbands image. i know it hurts to be a better person especially where he keeps talking about your temperaments and tarnishing your image then adds he wants a reconciliation. Nne life is not fair but the good thing is you have your son. Try and be happy for him and if it’s in your heart to forgive your husband and yourself pls do. you guys are just hurting each other.

    Do you think is easy to keep silence when your name is tarnished? Trust me, you don’t want to be there.

    Just when i thought totoh has it put together ,human being will fail you over and over again , we never ask you to b perfect in your life or in your marriage , you dont have to b , but you were busy proving you have a perfect life , no life or relationship or marriage is perfect , you have done bad in the past did your family disown you ?no , they put up with your less than perfect self , , I don’t believe any of them but more importantly I don’t care and many others too , why not leave the relationship honourably without all this drama , what are you trying to prove and to what end is all this rubish both of you are doing , think about how this stuff you put online will play out in 10 to 30 when you son can read n write ,
    you can win in a social media fight even if you are right

    Honestly you pple are really sick, and need help, especially you Tonto, you are shameless. Even if you have made up your mind to destroy the life of your husband, why don’t you just think of the long term effect on the future of your child and children yet unborn? Enough of your winnings, we are no longer interested, go and first learn how to be a good, respectful, honorable and humble woman so that you too can become a good wife material like Mercy Johnson
