Charity, they say, begins at home. This saying, however, seems not to make any meaning to this sultry actress popularly known as Tonto Dike who came to limelight through a reality TV Show known as the Next Movie Star packaged by Sola Fajobi where she was a contestant.
Her impressive performance on that show shot her to stardom as she suddenly turned a celebrity overnight with lots of scripts on her lap by some producers in Nollywood and beyond. But like a diamond in the sky, Tonto’s bad habit easily came to the open just as her career rises in the industry. Tonto Dike who has since been swimming in lots of controversies from her very first day in the industry like her romance with Don Jazzy and the illicit act with Rita Dominic.
This no longer interests you anyway. Fresh and hot is about her uncultured habit displayed a couple of weeks ago at a movie location some weeks ago. Tonto Dike, at a movie location, was alleged to have thrown decorum into the wind as she got herself drunk and went naked in presence of all and sundry. How she got high to that level to have gone gaga? Well, according to eye witness who spoke to us anonymously, the landlord of the edifice they used to shoot this movie, was said to have thrown a small party to appreciate the good work of the moviemakers whose effort to the growth of the industry has been commendable, and in the light of this, Tonto Dike and Ini Edo were said to have got so drunk to the extent that they couldn’t control themselves any longer.
Ini Edo, we were reliably informed, sensing her dizziness and the level of effect the cognac was having on her, got up and went straight to her car and drove home leaving behind Mike Ezeruonye, Tonto Dike, other actresses and some crew. Meanwhile, information at our disposal also reveals that, the owner of the house actually threw the small soiree so as to ‘lay’ his hands on these Nollywood divas as soon as they’re drunk- an arrangement he made with the producer and director (names withheld) of the movie.
Though, Tonto Dike’s uncultured habit didn’t totally thwart the man’s effort as we gathered that some of the divas slept at the place that night. For Tonto Dike, she was said to have regretted her action when she was informed of her bad manners and how she went naked and got help from Mike Ezeruonye who helped her cover her beautiful naked body with his jacket.
This is just a tip of the iceberg as we’re digging further on a tip we recently got on Tonto who is still in Amsterdam for the Festival. She messed up big time inside a club in Amsterdam with a young dude that she parades as her fiancé. Just keep your fingers crossed, story dey come.
