‘We are a sad generation with happy pictures’ – Tonto Dikeh laments

Controversial Nollywood actress Tonto Dikeh has said what she thinks of this present generation.

For the single mother of one, this generation is only living a fake lifestyle away from their real selves.

“We are a sad generation with happy photos,” Tonto Dikeh wrote on her verified Instagram page.

Her posts triggered several reactions from colleagues and fans.

Ogbonna Cecelia wrote: I don’t even have happy pictures. I am just there.

Recall that in a recent interview with media personality Chude Jideonwo, Tonto Dikeh said that her original plan in life was to go into the gospel ministry.

Although she has taken up other professions, she says the door is not closed, as she may still answer the call.

“I’m an opportunist with this thing called acting or entertainment. But God has ordained that step already. I was swimming in a swimming pool.

“I was a church girl, going to be a pastor. I was supposed to be a pastor. I still might. It depends on where God is taking me to.”

In 2017, shortly after her divorce from businessman Churchill Olakunle, the actress announced that she was now born again, declaring herself ‘Radical for Jesus’.

Ms Dikeh, who has been absent from the movie industry, then explained what being born again meant.

Highlighting what it means to be born again five years ago, she said it is about living a fun-filled, happy and joyous life knowing that the almighty God is on one’s side.

She wrote, “Being born again isn’t about not having friends or hanging out, it’s about having the right friends that will elevate, motivate, inspire you and most especially pray with you…

“My fellow brethren, it is time for us to Allow the world to see Jesus in us colourfully. My name is Tonto Dikeh. I am a Radical for Jesus. My life is as bright as a coat of many colours. I speak in heavenly tongue, and I am an entertainer.”

Since then, she has preached the gospel amidst criticism on her Instagram page.
