The single mother was recently questioned if she is completely retiring from acting

she said.

“I don’t like movies like that again and it’s been a long time since I acted on screen, you know.

“I’ve acted in about two films in 10 years, I appreciate that my path started from Nollywood, it is something that I respect, but it’s not something that has been in my life.

“So even after the election, it’s not something I’ll return to, but I’ll love to contribute to the industry when I get into power,” Tonto said.

She went ahead to commend her colleagues, Funke Akindele and Banky W for their courage and participation in politics.

“It 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.

“I 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,”
