Tonto Dikeh has revealed that she wouldn’t be getting back to Nollywood after the governorship election in Rivers State.
Recall that the actress was declared as the deputy governorship candidate of the African Democratic Congress (ADC) in Rivers State.
Speaking with BBC News Pidgin, Tonto said she won’t get back to acting regardless of whether her party loses the governorship election in Rivers State.
When inquired as to whether she has totally resigned from acting, the mother of one 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 on to praise her colleagues, Funke Akindele and Banky W for their boldness 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,” she said.
