Popular Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh gushes about meeting information minister, Lai Mohammed but fans aren’t having it.
Writing on her Instagram, the actress who runs a foundation narrated how she met the information minister and the good things the minister had to say about her foundation.
“What a great feeling to have the Hon Lai Mohammed speak about my foundation in such a passionate way. When you focus diligently on your work God will always make a way. Excited about the new plans,” said the actress who frequently reaches out to children in orphanages, at hospitals, and those in low-income communities through her foundation, The Tonto Dikeh Foundation.
And her fans are not happy about this post.
Many people fell out with the information minister last April, after his chat with CNN’s Richard Quest. When asked what country he thinks prepares the best jollof rice, the Minister of Information and Culture opened his mouth and said, “Senegal”.
And many Nigerians, who already had issues with his performance in the present administration, dragged him all over the internet.
Now, Tonto Dikeh has incurred the wrath of her fans for praising same man who they have accused of stripping our jollof rice of its international honour.
“Don’t you think that he might be lying to you,” said one upset fan, adding, “Please don’t get me wrong because you are doing an amazing job.”
Another continued, “Anything he says to you is a huge lie. Infact if he tells you good morning please confirm it’s really morning ooo biko.”
