Just minding my business last night around 8pm when a call came in from one of our Nollywood sources who broke a very sad news to me. My source said Nollywood actress Tonto Dikeh has been diagnosed with terminal cancer and has less than 6 months to live. The source said Tonto Dikeh’s fiance is a married man and that her colleague said the wife of the guy is the force behind her terminal cancer. Though the source isn’t aware of the type of cancer, she said the actress confided in a senior colleague during a phone call on Wednesday. On hearing this, I put a call through to a popular Nollywood PR guru who said the actress has cancer of the breast. She promised to give us further details soon. To confirm what my source told me, here is what the actress told her Facebook fans yesterday;
“Woke up today with a joyful heart, with a smile that only the Angels would understand..I’m happy even though my pains and sorrows… I see life differently and I wonder why He saves me each time. A little girl died this morning. She was my friend for a week, she was a great little girl and she could pray… She believed and was faithful, God has His reasons… But I am alive and from this day I have only one thing to promise myself, hardcore self love and happiness…I’m in a very happy place with me, scared, of course, but I’m excited to know that I can be happy through anything. I use myself as a point of contact to every sick person, I don’t know what you are going through but I proclaim healing and health into your lives.. ..By His stripes you are healed, I asked God for a miracle. It didn’t come as a healing it came in form of a Man (MrX) who is ready to hold my hands and make sure I know nothing but happiness till the end…Identify your miracle and give God the glory even when the doctors say “Ma’am you have five months to live… #ISmile #StrongWoman #HappyWoman #CheatingDeathwithAsmile #SpecialThankstomymedicalteamandDoctors #Special thanks to @sir_rozlah #No Pity party needed #HAPPY WEEKEND SWEETIES Here is a photo of Tonto Dikeh’s hospital room. Doctors gave Tonto Dikeh 5 months to live but that is not God’s final say.
Let her hope in God and change her ways. Please remember her in your prayers today.
