Tonto Dike forgives lady for defaming her character


As the break-up between Nollywood actress, Tonto Dike, and her former lover, Prince Kpokpogri Joseph, gets dirtier, a lady simply known as Merit Gold, via her Instagram account, Therealmeritgold, has begged the actress for defaming her character.

Declaring Gold’s apology, the actress screen-munched her post and reposted it on her Instagram account with the inscription, “MERIT, I am not pissed at you. I am not even mad at you. I just thank you and Gistlover for this revelation. Continue being the woman you want to be. I FORGIVE YOU AND I BEG THE WORLD TO PLEASE FORGIVE THIS LADY TOO… GOD BLESS YOU!! Thanks.”

Part of her apology reads, “Now, I realise my mistake and I’m deeply sorry everyone. Please, I was used by Prince Kpokpogri because he told me he’s done with King Tonto. What he wants from her was just to make himself famous and of which he has achieved. But my heart keeps beating me against what I did to my role model.

“Please, you all should kindly forgive me and also help me beg King Tonto to forgive me; and to Prince Kpokpogri, see, you can’t eat your cake and have it.”

Weeks ago, the actress pleaded the Commissioner of Police of the Federal Capital Territory to scrutinize her former lover for allegedly blackmailing her.

With this, it was reported that Kpokpogri was picked up by the Department of State Services.

The petition, which was widely published on social media, was titled, ‘Blackmail, extortion and obtaining by false pretences against a certain Prince Kpokpogri Joseph’.
