Here are excerpts of Tonto Dikeh‘s interview with The Nation:
Are you too strong to fall in love?
I am not too strong to fall in love; I am human and I have feelings too. I donâ€™t think there is anyÂ woman onÂ earth that has not experienced love in one form or the other.
Is it possible for you to marry an actor?
Thatâ€™s not possible; I can never be caught doing that. I canâ€™t marry an actor.
Do you consider yourself a good role model?
I am a role model to those who see me as one; I am sure Nigerians out there see and read all these things and they laugh. I am sure there are people out there who appreciate what I do as an actress and hope toÂ somedayÂ achieve what I have achieved as a thespian.
For how long will your career continue to thrive on controversy?
My career thrives on everything; my career thrives on all the ups and downs that I have been faced with. But most especially, the controversies have made me stronger and wiser.
Whatâ€™s yourÂ take on theÂ fact that most people believe that you are weird and wild?
I donâ€™t care about them because they donâ€™t care about me; everyone is entitled to his or her own opinion. I live my life the way I want to. People should also remember that I am human and no one is perfect.
I like that statement, i’m a role model to those who see me as one. Lol
