Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh, has set the records straight for those who think her son has blood ties to former President Olusegun Obasanjo.
Tonto Dikeh’s clarification came after Celebritys_Kid shared a photo of Tonto Dikeh’s son, King Andre, sitting on Obasanjo’s lap while his father Olakunle Churchill watched excitedly on Instagram. The photo came with a caption which claimed the kid was spending time with his grandfather.
However Tonto Dikeh who called out the page for lying with her son’s image, wrote;
But I wldnt have you using my sons image for a Lie..He has 2grand fathers,One is late and Mine is very much alive..
I was as ignorant as you until I found the truth so pls pls pls and pls again I’m a mother and I wldnt tolerate this…
Thanks and God bless you & your businessExcuse me that’s my son and that’s not his grandfather in any way.Baba is a great man and has been wonderful to me and my son but Unfortunately we have no blood relationship with Baba.”
The post has long been taken down now. Andre’s dad Olakunle Churchill is a nephew of former President Olusegun Obasanjoa. his father is said to be the son of the former President’s younger brother.
This report is coming after Tonto Dikeh’s ex-husband, Olakunle Churchill took to his IG page to wish former president, Olusegun Obasanjo a happy birthday. The throwback photos of himself with his son and Obasanjo, which he shared on his page came with a caption which suggested that former President Olusegun Obasanjo is his father, probably what Celebritys_kid misinterpreted. The caption read;
A FATHER IS SOMEONE YOU LOOK UP TO, NO MATTER HOW TALL YOU GROW. I CELEBRATE YOU TODAY AS YOU ADD ONE TO YOUR AGE, HAPPY BIRTHDAY BABA,I WISH YOU ETERNAL LIFE IN CHRIST.SHALOM !
