Veteran Nollywood actress turned politician, Tonto Dikeh has revealed she’d not be returning to the movie industry after the governorship election in Rivers State.
The actress, who is running as deputy guber candidate under the African Democratic Congress (ADC), disclosed this while speaking in a recent interview with BBC News Pidgin when she was asked whether she’d be returning to her acting career after the election.
In her word:
”I no really dey film like that again, you know e don tey I don dey screen. No be say I don do like two films in 10 years you no go tell me say I dey industry anymore. Always appreciate that it was the industry that my path started from, that my first shine started from, it is something that I respect, but it’s not something that has been in my life. So even after the election no be something I go still go back to.”
She also commended her colleagues, Funke Akindele and Banky W, who have also been active in politics.
”It’s not easy for them being where they are and putting yourself out there to effect change because criticism and so many things are involved. I believe in Funke, I believe in Banky. These two people…. I can hold to something and I say I believe that these people have a vision for the people.”
