    Is she picking on herself by sharing this or what? I thought travails in life is to humble us and not to render us straying? With all what she went thro in life as she claims, one would have been experiencing a humble Tonto. I’m a nigerian but wasn’t born there but I when I arrived Nigeria for the very first time at age 27, I met one of my cousins who experienced worst than what Tonto narrated. To cut the long story short, my cousin was of an exceptional breed. He was very humble before he lost his life in an automobile accident. It’s never too late to change one’s ways. Tonto, look back from where u came from and please humble yourself. I’m a huge fan of yours ‘cos u r a very good “actor” but your attitude has always been the issue. Thank God for your life and bless ur soul in Jesus matchless name.

    Is Tonto Dike’s story in English, German, Polish or some other languages? Punctuations went on Valentine break while she was writing on how God moved her from “grass to grace”. My dear Tonto, you are a public figure and as such your carriage, grammar, life, etc must be a shining example to your fans and persons who see you as a role model. Your write-up was not impressive. Much is expected from you. I do not seek to embarrass you, but to encourage you to post less controversial pictures/comments and also show us what you have upstairs by writing your thoughts in Queen’ English. God bless you.
