Family member claims Tonto Dikeh lied about her past

20 February 2014, 10:35

Lagos -  Unfolding like a typical Nollywood film, actress Tonto Dikeh on Tuesday, wrote a touching message to her fans on Twitter page, giving her own Cinderalla story of how she rose from obscurity to fame.

Tonto Dikeh writes about how she begged for food while growing up, and was a cleaner making N200, but someone close to the “Poko Princess” (probably a family member) announced on Twitter that Tonto Dikeh was lying, and only wanted to remain relevant by telling a sob story.

“Biggest lie of the year”  the lady with Twitter handle @tushmee said

“Don’t try to put across that our father wasn’t capable” she tweeted.
