So ‘Poko Queen’ Tonto Dikeh tried committing suicide due to pressure? – Report


Wow. I was shocked to read this. After my meeting with this lady and i realized she isn’t as bad as we paint her, i’ve been asking people to take it easy on her. She’s human too you know. Here is what popular blogger Linda Ikeji reports(in her words):

Tonto Dikeh tried to commit suicide a few weeks back. Unbelievable, right? I heard everything that happened on that fateful day but decided not to write about it because it’s such a sensitive issue. She really wanted to end her own life but thank God for the intervention of good friends.

If I write details of what happened that day, none of you will believe it. I was in shock myself. All I will say now is please take it easy on her with your comments and attacks on social media.

The only reason I’m writing about it now is because she kinda shared what happened to her on her instagram page but most people didn’t get what she was trying to say. Also, like Tonto said, suicide is never the solution to any problem. This is for those who are contemplating it. See the photo Tonto shared on Instagram and what she wrote after the cut…

Tonto posted this photo above on her instragram page and wrote below it..

“WokeUp happy n decided to share diz***I’ve bin here b4 n I can tell u we stronger Dan our problemz/painz/Etc**That day I realized SUICIDE iz for COWARDZ**if u’ve gat no1 to talk to like mii I suggezt u strt wit GOD,diz shitzzzz crazy(world) but it iz Ourz dnt leave it in SHAME,ILOVEU”—Tonto Dikeh

Tonto dear, you’re a beautiful strong woman who deserves to live a long, fulfilling life. Never let what people say about you push you over the edge, because when you really think about it, nobody holy pass. And remember, the haters can scream so loud sometimes that you miss the voices of the people who love you. Hear their voices and know you’re loved. Keep your head up, girl. Linda

Wow! So sad! Y’all heard?

      If you had taken your time to read the post you’ll notice this is straight news reporting as opposed to creating a story. Stories without proof are reported in gistville the same way it was written by the author until confirmed to be true. I believe in hearing from the horses mouth no matter who posts such stories. Thanks for the feedback!

        i dont need to read closely to see a lack of effort on your part. if you are going to use someone elses story for the reason you mentioned above mention the source so it doesnt look like you are trying to copy because despite what your intents were, it looks like you couldnt be bothered. this is just my opinion which i am entitled to.

          Na pple like dey make Nigeria nor dey move forward so. Maybe u carry wood for eye, u nor see say them write ‘Linda Ikeji reports’ which shows she’s the source. Won’t be surprised if ure one those who makes Tonto’s lyf a living hell.
          Back to the topic. Tonto needs to stop raising controversy on herself and then claiming victim abeg. She shud chill.
