I’m Probably One Of The Most Controversial People  On Earth, Says Tonto Dikeh

Popular Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh says she is probably one of the most controversial people on earth.

The mum of one said this while speaking on “Leveraging controversy” at TEDx Ikenegbu recently. In a video posted via her Instagram page from the event, she said :

“Thank you very much for having me, everybody. My name is King Tonto and I’m probably one of the most controversial people on earth….proudly! And the only reason why I can be proud of it is because, I’m not fighting it. I’m using it for my advantage. I’m using it for my growth. I’m using it for my satisfaction”

Dikeh said that initially, the negative things people said about her used to make her sad before discovering that she could build on it.

“I used to be sad and broke down on what people wrote about me. Every time someone says something negative about me, I go home and absolve it; I let the negativity get me so much that I became what people thought I am,’’ Dikeh said.

The actress explained that she no longer fought for controversy or what people wrote about her but leveraged on them using them to her advantage, growth and satisfaction.

She urged her audience not to allow controversies to break them but they should use it to their own advantage.

“Controversy can make or mar you but only you can break it and for years, I allowed it to break me,’’ she said.

She said that God gave her a second chance to build on her dreams and service to humanity.

“In the past, everyone thought I would amount to nothing but today, the story is different as everyone wishes to be like Dikeh without minding the pains behind it. I have mastered my pain and controversy,’’ she said.
