      Only Toke looks like a half cast? Will you say the same for Monalisa? Anyway Tonto Dike is quite wild herself. She can drive a calm person mad. Look at how she burnt that ladys bag and put it on social media two years ago. Not to mention other dramatic episodes. I know the man has no right to be violent but in some cases the woman just won’t shut up while trying to aggresively make her point or win an arguement until the man looses his cool and she sees stars.

    I am proud of this women and what they are doing.

    This is a revival!

    Women are refusing to die in silence and fighting for other women
    This is a good one!

    I expect the good men to comment and condemn the act. This is not the time to be silent, guys.

    You should have included the video where Tonto went few minutes bonkers and Sola Sobowale had to dive for her dear life…Løla *exaggeration*. The woman was just shaking her head. In her mind she’ll be wondering ‘wetin dey chop this girl for brain like this? E pass this walk? Oniregbe!” ??

    Is it just me or do these women look real horrible. I mean the different shades on them will make you wanna whoop their ass. How do you explain hooking up with a light skin in the morning time & come 12 noon, she turns dark. Damn even Chameleons don’t change colors that fast.

    Look no man should hit his wife. But women and their big mouths can push a man with little restraint to the wall. Olori wura sounds like she has been a victim of habuse herself..was she not a side chic of the ooni when he was married to his previous wife…

    Now Domestic abuse is not good, my parents have been married for almost 50 years and it has been violence free but me thinks part of the reason this whole thing keeps festering in recent times is because we are adopting the wrong approach, this whole show seems to be encouraging young ladies of these days to be mannerless, rude, troublesome and uncouth to their men with the mindset that nothing is gonna happen to them after all the mantra out there is that a man shouldnt hit a man no matter what, it doesnt work that way, women too should learn to walk away and then sort out isssues when both parties are calm, not keep yelling, cursing and hitting the man then when he gets pushed to the wall and reacts you start screaming DV, absolutely no, when we start teaching everyone how to behave both men and women then we are going nowhere.
