Nollywood actress and filmmaker, Tonto Dikeh says she is the most controversial person on earth.
Dikeh made the statement in a video at the TEDx Ikenegbu programme which she posted on her official Instagram page.
The movie star noted that the negative things people said about her, initially used to make her sad until she discovered that she could build on it.
”My name is King Tonto and I am probably one of the most controversial person on earth…”
“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..”
“Controversy can make or mar you but only you can break it and for years, I allowed it to break me,’’ she said.
“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 explained.
The programme titled “Leveraging on controversy’, is an annual event organised by Martin Uwakwe and Co-organised by Excel Ajah to bring people together to share their experiences through talks, and videos.
