Tonto Dikeh has stated that following the governorship election in Rivers State, she will not be returning to Nollywood.
You may remember that the African Democratic Congress (ADC) nominated the actress for the position of deputy governor in Rivers State.
Tonto told BBC News Pidgin that if her party loses the governorship election in Rivers State, she will not return to acting.
The single mother was recently questioned if she is completely retiring from acting
‚ÄúI don‚Äôt like movies like that again and it‚Äôs been a long time since I acted on screen, you know.
‚ÄúI‚Äôve acted in about two films in 10 years, I appreciate that my path started from Nollywood, it is something that I respect, but it‚Äôs not something that has been in my life.
‚ÄúSo even after the election, it‚Äôs not something I‚Äôll return to, but I‚Äôll love to contribute to the industry when I get into power,‚ÄĚ Tonto said.
She went ahead to commend her colleagues, Funke Akindele and Banky W for their courage and participation in politics.
‚ÄúIt is not easy for Funke and Banky W at their level to put themselves out there to effect change because criticisms and so many things are involved.
‚ÄúI believe in Funke, I believe in Banky. With them, I can hold onto something and say I believe that they have a vision for the people,‚ÄĚ
