It’s been years of vicious rivalry between the two Nollywood actresses but it looks like all that is going to be in the past now as Tonto Dikeh took to Instagram early this morning to tender an unreserved apology to Mercy Johnson Okojie for calling her daughter, Purity a witch years ago.
Mercy had returned to acting a few months after she put to bed and Tonto Dikeh who at that time was very loud and obnoxious on Twitter had something to say about it.
“Nollywood Bridez marry horribly** #SHEBA#…Wen n if I give birth, God plz provide mii wit a husband dat can provide 4uz, Not 1 dat wld send mii bck to actin 2monthz after I born 2Huzzle,” she tweeted.
She went on to write, “Every1 who comes to ma tl to Rant Abt ur FOOL MJ is a bigger baztard Dan SHE is coz I never cald no Bitch’z Name**F*ck U**”
“Bitch Lozt her Name,U gonno Uze mii az A come back???Naaahhhhh go Nurze Ur Witch Bitch** #StayBlessed”
But it looks like the new Tonto has realised the gravity of her words after having a child of her own. She apologised and asked the actress to take her time forgiving her.
“Good morning world Since I have your undivided attention I better make good use of it and not miss the blessing in this lesson!!!
@mercyjohnsonokojie Ever since I had my baby I have been reminded constantly about an ill statement I made about one of your kids a very long time ago.I want to use this media to say I am so sorry,I sincerely apologize from the bottom of my heart.I had no right to say what I did,I totally disgraced myself with that.
As a mom I do realize a lot of things I take in because of the love of my son and I know you only took my insult because of that same love..
I am sorry MJ,I am sorry to your lil’ girl or boy..
We don’t have to love each other to realize when we are/went wrong••
I have/had no excuse for my behaviour and I also apologize to the fans I hurt/Let down with my words that day many years ago ..To Err is human but to forgive is divine!!!
Am not trying to be the better person,You deserve this apology for your Child for the Love I have for God..I found God and everything in my life changed,Let me tell you about him sometime..
God bless you and yours!!! Happy new year…
Take your time with the process of forgiving my ill mannered words to your infant but pls eventually do!!
#2017 Amending All my Wrongs
#2017 my year of positivity #Long over due apology #MAMAKING,” she wrote.
Mercy is yet to respond to the apology.
