“I Will Not Get Back To Acting After 2023 Election” – Tonto Dikeh Reveals

After the Rivers State governorship election, Tonto Dikeh announced that she would not be coming back to Nollywood.

In an interview with BBC News Pidgin, the actress revealed that she was the African Democratic Congress’s (ADC’s) deputy governorship candidate in Rivers State.

Even if her party loses the race for governor of Rivers State, she continued, she will not go back to acting. The single mother responded when asked if she had given up acting entirely:

“I don’t like movies like that again and it’s been a long time since I acted on screen, you know.

“I’ve acted in about two films in 10 years, I appreciate that my path started from Nollywood, it is something that I respect, but it’s not something that has been in my life.

“So even after the election, it’s not something I’ll return to, but I’ll love to contribute to the industry when I get into power.”

She continued by praising her coworkers, Funke Akindele and Banky W, for entering politics.

She said: “It is not easy for Funke and Banky W at their level to put themselves out there to effect change because criticisms and so many things are involved.

“I believe in Funke, I believe in Banky. With them, I can hold onto something and say I believe that they have a vision for the people.”
