Tonto Dike – “If I keep waiting for an Igbo man, I will just end up like Genevieve Nnaji who is eternally single”

This piece was culled from an interview Tonto Dike had recently with a reporter from Punch. Excerpt from the interview:



Interviewer: We just learnt that you will be getting married soon to your new boyfriend who happens to come from Benin, Edo state. Why are so many Nollywood female starts getting snapped up by Benin or men from Edo state?

Tonto Dike: First of all, it is nobody’s business where my fiance is from. That out of the way, yes Benin men are great and very understanding. They are not sitting and judging you unlike an Igbo man that will want to be poke-nosing in everything you do. You make your money and the Edo man is not interested in your personal affairs . “If I keep waiting for an Igbo man, I will just end up like Genevieve Nnaji who is eternally single.”

Tonto dike Debunked the statement above…

In a reaction to the alleged interview, which has spread like harmmatan fire, Tonto reacted this way, “I have never and will never say anything against Genevieve. I will not even interfere in her personal issues. I did not grant such interview.”

Her publicist also denied any such statement from Tonto dike. The publicist said, “after her interview with you (NFC) last year December, Tonto dike has only granted an interview with a soft-sell magazine, which was done about three months ago.
So, I don’t know where that purported interview came from or when such was granted.”

Marathon S*x Leads To Death Of Civil Defence Officer In Calabar


Some officers of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC in Calabar over the weekend mounted a manhunt for a lady who allegedly had marathon s*x with their colleague, Ofem Eta, during which he died.

According to a source at 2, Orok Ita Street, Big Qua, where Ofem was living before he met his unfortunate death, the man came back from duty on Friday evening and without eating any food went into marathon s*x with the girl and passed away during the act.

“He came back from work and told me he was hungry and I prepared food for him but when I got there, his door was shut and when I knocked he told me to take the food back and bring it later. When I took the food to him later, his door was open and when I knocked he did not answer. When I went in I saw him lying naked on his bed,” the source said.

Ofem who hails from Mkapani in Yakkur Local Government Area is alleged to be fond of having s*x with girls never minding he had eaten or not.

“When she came she greeted us but we did not take particular interest in her and when she came out of his room we did not say anything to her because we did not suspect anything unusual until his town girl brought him food,” a neighbor said about the girl who slept with the victim.

“People from his office came here and disturbed the whole street but they could not arrest anybody because the girl went away with his phone,” the neighbour said.

The Public Relations Officer of the NSCDC in Calabar, Mrs Nkoyo Bassey when contacted for comments said: “The man was enjoying himself so that is strictly his personal responsibility and not the Corps’. Have a good day”.

One of the deceased’s colleagues at the Operations unit of the Corps where he worked before his death said there are efforts to track down the lady “but for now we have not arrested anybody”
