Though the objective of the challenge is yet to be clearly spelt out, the trend has Nigerians sharing photos of themselves crossing dressing on social media. See more hilarious photos below;
On Friday, June 16, Tonto Dikeh raised eyebrows after she celebrated Father’s day with a stunt. The controversial actress posted a video and pictures of herself playing the role of her estranged husband as she attended a father’s day celebration in her son’s school in Abuja on her Instagram handle and it went viral.
In the video and pictures, the mother-of-one can be seen transformed into a man with beards and spotting a traditional male kaftan as she accompanies her son to school.
Hours after the pictures went viral, her estranged husband, Olakunle Churchill dropped a comment saying Tonto shouldn’t play victim to circumstances she created. That it was cruel and unfair.
The next day, Tonto gave reasons for her father’s day stunt. According to the actress, her act goes a long way to show her son Andre how much he will never feel left out or unloved. On her IG page, she wrote:
“GREATNESS DOESNT HAVE A COLOUR, WEIGHT, HEIGHT, SEX OR AGE. IT ONLY HAS PASSION, EFFORT, FOCUS AND THE HEART TO SUCCEED…YOU ARE GREATNESS MY CHILD.
“Happy 14months my Angel,No need for long episodes…yesterday goes a long way to show you how much you will never feel left out or Unloved…My blood is yours, My heart YOU stole easily, My strength, Prayers and energy Are all yours. I Love you My Life, My Ace, MY SON😍😍 #KINGY#14months #Love #Son #Motherhood#Parenting.”
Earlier in the month, on Tonto Dikeh’s birthday, Churchill dropped a message on Instagram to celebrate the mother of his son, despite their marital crisis. He wrote:
“Happy birthday to the mother of my KING. I wish you God’s blessings today and always🙏”
But Tonto Dikeh’s action is coming after many thought the perceived friction from her marital crisis with Olakunle Churchill had been doused.
Olakunle Churchill and Tonto met two and a half years ago at Escape Nightclub in Lagos during his brother’s birthday party. Tonto got pregnant six months after they met, and they later married.
In February 2017, the Nollywood star shocked many after she revealed that there were cracks in her 17-month-old marriage claiming to have been abused by her husband. Tonto also disclosed that she had moved out of the house with her son. She has also had custody of her son since her marriage crashed.
In an interview where she showed some photo evidence of bruises on her face, the actress broke down in tears while speaking about her marriage, and said she was devastated by the crisis. Since then, there have been lots of controversial reports about the marital issues between the couple.
