  • Q: As a married woman, would you accept any role that comes your way now?

Tonto Dikeh: As a married woman, a lot of things change in your life of course, you must have some sense of responsibility in decision making because it is not about your life anymore, you have a family to take care of. So, for the respect i have for my head who is my husband, and my neck who is my son, i can’t play certain roles anymore because my family comes first in all i do.

  • Q: How are you enjoying motherhood?

Tonto Dikeh: Surprisingly, i have embraced the role of motherhood with ease, grace and love. Motherhood is a learning process which am developing each day. By the special grace of God, i must say i am a fantastic mother to my son.

  • Q There is a belief that marriage is a prison. How would you describe yours?

Tonto Dikeh: Marriage is blessing. It’s a new phrase and level in life. Marriage from my point of view is awesome if you marry the right person. It is hell if you marry the wrong person. You will hear different stories from different folks. For me, i am waxing strong and happier in marriage.”
