Oct 18, 2012 – Tonto Dike’s Song Arouses Criticism: She’s Better Off Acting – Charles Novia

Nigerian actress Tonto Dikeh who recently released two new singles, Itz Ova and Get High has aroused harsh criticism from top Nollywood movie producer, Charles Novia.

Charles Novia who recently wrote a Nollywood Memoir, Nollywood Till November said the following about the Tonto Dike’s new song few hours ago:

Charles Novia On Tonto Dikeh’s New Song

I have restrained myself for a couple of years from commenting on Tonto Dike’s career after my last comments about her  role in the soft porn movie she acted in two years back, were badly taken by her and she went on twitter to hurl infantile insults on my person with expletives and uncomplimentary remarks. My reaction to such then was just a dignified silence. After all, I had already spoken on her stunted talent as an up and coming actress and further comments on her incensed tweets were unnecessary.

All through the past few hours, the social media networks have been abuzz with the new singles of actress, Tonto Dike. She seems to have joined the actors of her ilk who have the moonlighting  itch to delve into singing. While no one can stop such an ambition by those artistes, I do think those who surround such artistes are their worst enemies if they can’t tell them the truth about leaving their sometimes doubtful day job. Well, I will! I listened to Miss Dike’s two singles a few minutes ago and my initial speechlessness morphed to a nagging laughter and then subsided into a befuddled anguish. I’m a music  label owner (November Records) and have produced and Executive Produced  acts like Majek Fashek, Terry tha Rapman, Zubby Enebeli etc. I know much about music and the slant of commercial music. But after listening  to Miss Dike’s songs, I’m inclined to align with the majorly negative
comments about them on cyberspace. Ah-ah! Whoever produced her knew she has a bad voice for singing and masked our listening torture with the Autotune effect. But even the Autotune rejected any attempt to make a bad voice worse and Miss Dike came out sounding like she was in mid-stream orgasm instead of singing! Her anguished tremolos would have been better reserved for a horror movie sound effect than an attempt at joining the revered profession of music.

If Omotola got away with her last two terrible attempts at singing, it was because Omotola is a fantastic actress and her fans could forgive her musical failings after backtracking her body of work in Nollywood. With Tonto, I can’t say much  either for her acting depth. She’s a one-dimensional actress in my
opinion, who mistakes notoriety for fame. She needs more training in
acting and this I say with all sense of professionalism as a movie
Director. She might achieve greater heights in acting if she trains
more. But she has no heights to achieve in singing. Only a downward
plunge, the stuff bad endings in movies are made of.

    All of them want to show to the rest of us that they know it all and have it all and the end result is turning jack of all and master of none. Call them for modelling they are there wearing dresses which makes them look horrible; call them for dance they will come forward shaking their bobo like some human dolls call them to sing a song they will come forward & will spoil the whole thing with their hoax voices call them to show it on the bed they will come forward jumping on top of it like some funny brazilian frogs abaaaa idon doooooo Nobody can carry 1st in all but una wan tell us say if nobi una no other person fit doan OVERSABI HOUSEWIVES

    Lets not push over this issue, Tonto is Talented, as for me the music was not that Good enough, but if she wants to continue singing, with time she will sing better than this it only require patience. even during acting it takes time to become perfect,the choice is up to her, but lets encourage her.

    Even those with real knwoledge still take their time before jumping into the market let alone a complet novice. Let her stick to her acting profession even if it onesided there are always fan for every bad actor/ actress.
