Popular Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh has denied viral reports that she said in a 2012 interview that she can’t marry an Igbo man.

The mother of one has taken to social media to deny the claims with a disclaimer.

She wrote:

“DISCLAIMER:

I have heard and read a  couple of times about this topic and I am actually totally shocked at this!!

I have never granted an interview saying such nonsense, I am practically Igbo.

I always said it years back that I didn’t have any Facebook account and anything at that time that came from Facebook under my name was not from me.

I only just joined Facebook a few years ago. Also I made a disclaimer eight years ago on Twitter about this issue.

Also, as said by the invisible Tonto that I was raised by a poor father and had to sleep under bridges to make a living! Too bad. That’s far from my case, I came from money and lived an average childhood with everything I ever needed at my feet, went to the best schools in my community!!

Don’t get deceived by the media, if I said it, I will boldly stand to it!!

No media house can make claim to this interview so please my people these are not my words.

#Enough is Enough.”

This is coming on the heels of Dikeh being in a long war of allegations with her ex-husband, Olakunle Churchill. Their accusations and counter-accusations against each other have been extending for so long that the Actors Guild of Nigeria recently threatened Dikeh with a sanction if she doesn’t take her marital issues of social media.
