June 4, 2015 – Halima Abubakar Addresses Rumoured Fight With Tonto Dikeh, Says She Still Attends Church
In this recent interview with ThisDay, Nollywood actress Halima Abubakar talked about her rumoured beef with Tonto Dikeh. She also talked briefly about her religion.
Sometime ago, it was reported in the papers that you had issues with Nollywood actress Tonto Dikeh. What actually are the issues?
Oh no, we never quarrelled. I only read it in the papers just like everyone else did. We never had any verbal quarrel. She is just my friend and colleague.
But you used to be very close friends all of a sudden you gals parted?
Well, if that is your belief. I came to this world alone, not with any friend. The truth is that, after a while in life some people just grow apart. That was the only problem we had, there was never any verbal exchange between us. Don’t forget that between us, there were too many friends. Now, I don’t even have time for friendship, which is the truth because I have grown wiser. At a point in life, people just need to go achieve something and come back. I didn’t want to feel awkward in any relationship that is why I decided to do my own thing. Tonto is an amazing person. I don’t think that I have had any verbal quarrel with anybody. She is a sister and a wonderful actress.
You are a Muslim but at times you attend Church programmes. How come?
I was actually born a Muslim but I still go to church. I love the word of God so I attend Church programmes. Remember, we are serving one God so I don’t discriminate. I actually finished reading the Koran, nobody should try me oh! My religion is in my heart. I don’t have to carry it on my face; that is hypocrisy. My beliefs are there. I am indifferent. I make my hair and I wear good clothes. I want to look good in as much as I am serving God.
