I Can Decide To Smoke Myself To Hell It's Nobody's Business---- Tonto Dikeh!

In a interview recently, Tonto speaks smoking, seminude acting and more, excerpts:

How true is the rumor that you are a heavy smoker and can't do without cigarette?

We are just so shallow minded. How does that come into the way I act? Excuse me (voice raised). That is my personal life. If I want to smoke, I handle a stick of cigarette and I smoke it hard. It is my life I can decide to smoke myself to hell. It's nobody's business.

Yeah! Just like you were smoking before this interview started?

It's left for me to think about it. It's left for me to continue. How has smoking affected my acting job? It's nobody business and it doesn't affect what you see on TV.

Many said your smoking habit has made you become asthmatic.

(Laughs out loudly) I think my health problems have nothing to do with my job. If I have a health problem then I have a health problem. It's not something that is meant for the public or the world.

How true is it also that you are into lesbianism?

Aha! There is nothing that is surprising to me anymore. I don't live my life based on what people say about me.

You acted in the movie, 'Dirty Secret,' alongside Muna Obiekwe and Jibola Dabo. The movie has generated so much criticism. How have you taken it?

I felt it but I felt it in a very positive way. It really helped my career. It helped me with my job and my personality as a woman. The movie has been highly talked about and it even got me more popularity. It was really crazy to be part of it. I got paid to interpret a role as an actress and I did it perfectly well. I don't give a f**k about what anybody is saying out there.

Some critics felt your seminude role in the movie was totally UnAfrican?

I don't know what the Africa role is. I don't know about being an African or not. I am a human being and an actress. That is all I know. Being an African is not part of my job.


  1. lol. really though its her life she can do whatever she pleases.

  2. silly girl silly girl what do you mean about not knowing about being an African or not. If you were not african you would not have been afforded the opportunity to be where your at in the acting world. You know in order to be in african movies or even afforded a chance to do an African movie you must be African. Wake up girl stop trying to be something your not. Get back to the real Tonto Dikeh. The Tonto that never went to acting school but scores in every movie like a true thespian. Stop! doing rules that will hurt your career. Stop acting like a juvenile and take all them damn tattoos off your body and get back to the real beautiful woman you are. What the hell happened to you. You make less actors with less skills look and appear better than you. Wake up!
