For some time now, Tonto Dikeh has been proudly addressing herself as a born again christian.
Although, many think Tonto changed as a result of the recent challenges she went through in her marriage, the actress explained she had always been a good christian but only backslid.
In an interview with Jayne Augoye of Premium Times, Tonto talks more abut her new found faith.
On the secret behind her new glow
Well, firstly I am born again and when you have God, you just radiate. So all the glow is from within; you don’t fake God’s glow. You also can’t fake God’s glory because it overwhelms you. I don’t know how to say what I want to say but when God steps into a situation or your life he elevates you and makes you see things in a different light. So, the glow you see is all God. I am a radical for Christ.
If she plans to set up a church or become an evangelist
Yes I will, before I became an entertainer I was close to becoming an evangelist but I backslid. But not to say anything, I am back with God. I don’t know where God is taking me to. But if it is the pulpit, I am ready.
If the backlashes she had received on social media was as a result of being born again
Well, even if I wasn’t born again, they will still come for me. You see, the devil cannot steal from an empty barrel; you have to be fully charged. I will go through a lot of things, whatever is happening now this is nothing compared to what is yet to come. What I have seen is not even half of what will come in the future. I am ready for more; there will be worse to come and I’m ready for it. When God prepares you in a different kind of way, I can fight my battles on my own strength.
If she would remarry or reconcile with her estranged husband as a child of God
Love is a beautiful thing and love is exquisite. So, of course, I will remarry once I find true love.
