In a tell all interview, popular actress, Tonto Dikeh’s husband opens up on the couple’s recent marital crisis.
Below are excerpts of the interview in which he refuted the allegations of having a relationship with Nigerian cross-dresser, Okuneye Idris, also known as Bobrisky.
Could you clarify for us about the recent news of your split with your wife, her use of marijuana which purportedly led her to destroying things in your mum’s home and her leaving with your son?
Every family has its ups and downs, but I would not want to talk about my family. Well, it’s funny to me, because I don’t have a female personal Assistant. My PA is Mr. Paul, who has been working with me over the years. Besides, it was a sponsored blackmail. These issues are private to me and my family. I don’t know where this came from and I don’t believe my wife would say that, I’m against such. Even my foundation preaches against domestic violence in some of our charity awareness campaigns. It is obvious that all these channelled attacks are targeted to drag my image and what I believe in, to the mud. Well, the truth is that I have never raised my hands against my wife. There is CCTV camera evidence in my mum’s home to prove all this.
There was also news that you have a relationship with Bobrisky and Swanky Jerry…
Churchill: I only heard about it later but never did see the actual post and I must say it beats my imagination. I met Swanky Jerry through my wife and believe that whoever my wife likes as a friend, I also take as a family friend. I don’t know Bobrisky. I’m too busy to think of such unpleasant issues, let alone cooking up a defence.
With your son’s first birthday around the corner, how will you mark it?
I really miss him and have planned a worthwhile party for him with friends and family, but sadly all efforts to reach him have been unsuccessful. This is affecting me and my business. His mum won’t pick calls. I truly should not be granting this interview if this is all about my family. I’m very optimistic that our family will unite together for his birthday, even though channels to reach my wife are temporarily off.
What do you say about all that has happened?
Churchill: It’s a phase. But I would like to ask bloggers and on social media enthusiasts to first verify the facts. Every marriage has it good and bad moments. Unfortunately, I recently discovered news of the alleged marriage instability is making headlines on some media platforms. Please Tonto Dikeh fans and well-wishers, take it easy on her. I guess she is still adjusting to motherhood. With time, it will be well.
What were your thoughts when you started Kindred Realtors, a real estate firm for your son?
The company was actually one of my companies. I changed it to our son’s name after his birth and feel it’s one of his benefits, to start building a brand for him as he grows.
You recently had a four-day charity walk through your foundation what was the idea behind it and how do you fund it?
Yes, that was a memorable and successful event. I’m glad a lot of the physically challenged were empowered. We spoke to them about discovering ability in disability. We’re able to do this from favour and goodwill. Also, 10 percent of our profit or revenue from the Big Church Group is transferred to the foundation’s charity account. It all started in Ghana before cutting across states in Nigeria and beyond?
