Here’s the apology Tontolet wrote:
“Good morning world. Since i have your undivided attention, i better make good use of it and not miss the blessing in this lessons.
@mercyjohnsonokojie, ever since i had my baby, i have been reminded constantly about the 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 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 one another to realize when we are/went wrong …. I 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!!!”
Tontolet concluded by saying:
“Am not trying to be the better person, you deserve this apology for your child and 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. Take your time in the process of your forgiving my ill mannered words to your infant but pls, eventually do it
Mama Purity who back then did not reply the ill statement made by Tontolet is happily married with 3 kids (2 girls and a boy). Mama Purity has featured in a couple of movies after having her kids.
While Tonto Dikeh who has a son has not featured in any new movie since she got married in 2015.
What words do you have for Tonto Dikeh who has taken a bold step to ask for forgiveness from Mama Purity?
- UPDATE: Mercy Johnson have accepted Tonto Dikeh’s apology, forgives her for the love of God and her kids.
