Popular and controversial Nollywood stars Tonto Dikeh and Mercy Johnson have finally settled their age long rift, after the former openly apologised to her colleague over the social media for insulting her 4 years ago. The duo who have been sworn enemies for several years over supremacy battle settled their rift few days ago.Tonto insulted Mercy when she was still a single girl for coming back to set with her newly born baby Purity barely 3 months after her birth, stating that it was poverty that could make a mother subject her new born baby to such stress. It was reported that Mercy instantly returned to Asaba movie locations the moment she returned from the US where she gave birth to her baby and instantly started working.
In a war of words that ensued, Tonto further went on to call the actress and her daughter several demeaning names. However, her new resolution in 2017 prompted her to mend fences with al she had offended especially since the essence of motherhood has made her a changed person. In an open apology she wrote to Mercy, it reads
Good morning world Since I have your undivided attention I better make good use of it and not miss the blessing in this lesson!!!
@mercyjohnsonokojie Ever since I had my baby I have been reminded constantly about an ill statement I made about one of your kids a very long time ago. I want to use this media to say I am so sorry, I sincerely apologize from the bottom of my heart. I had no right to say what I did, I totally disgraced myself with that.
As a mom I do realize a lot of things I take in because of the love of my son and I know you only took my insult because of that same love..
I am sorry MJ,I am sorry to your little’ girl or boy
We don’t have to love each other to realize when we are/went wrong••
I have/had no excuse for my behaviour and I also apologize to the fans I hurt/Let down with my words that day many years ago ..To err is human but to forgive is divine!!!
Am not trying to be the better person, you deserve this apology for your Child for the Love I have for God. I found God and everything in my life changed, Let me tell you about him sometime..
God bless you and yours!!! Happy New Year…
Take your time with the process of forgiving my ill-mannered words to your infant but please eventually do!!
