Tonto Dikeh has dubbed herself “the world’s most contentious person,” and to some extent, she is correct.
Dikeh made the statement in a video she uploaded on her own Instagram page from the TEDx Ikenegbu event.
The mother of one evidently based her theory on all the wahala she was engulfed in with her ex-husband Olakunle Churchill and her most recent ex-boyfriend Prince Kpokpogri, both of whom were entangled with issues.
”My name is King Tonto, and I am arguably the most divisive person on the planet…”
“I used to become depressed and cry about what other people said about me. I go home and cleanse myself every time someone says something terrible about me; I allowed the negativity get to me so much that I became what people believed I was..”
“Controversy may make or break you, but only you can break it, and I let it break me for years,” she said.
“In the past, everyone thought I’d be nothing, but today, the story is different since everyone wants to be like Dikeh, regardless of the hardships that come with it. She explained, “I’ve mastered my grief and controversy.”
The annual event, dubbed “Leveraging on Controversy,” is organized by Martin Uwakwe and Excel Ajah to bring individuals together to share their stories through presentations and recordings.
