Tonto Dikeh was the latest guest on Rubbin’ Minds with Ebuka Obi-Uchendu and she talked about her life after separating from her husband, raising her child and her career. She also talked about her Foundation and new projects she is working on.

If she’s exhausted from all the controversies about her divorce

Yes, I think I am there, that was why I decided to just keep quiet, like you know, “the lord will handle everything.” I’m exhausted. Apart from being exhausted, I think they have a plan to just take me backwards and I’m realising that my responses does not even help me or my brand or doesn’t even change perception that everyone has out there for me so, why even bother?

If she regretted the interviews she granted

I do not regret my interviews because I just got to know that after my interviews, a lot of domestic violence victims came out. A lot of people started getting saved. Naturally, with all of the shame and the backbiting and the pain and the losses that the interview got me, I wont still regret it because I know that I have someone out there.

On people not believing her story

At first, it bothered me a lot. At first, it was killing but I got to the point where I knew that nobody cared about me or the situation that happened in my home asides from me. Everything I’m doing out there is for entertainment, nobody really cares about that. What I went through, I went through and I’m not about to validate my pain or my past pain to anybody. I’m just about moving forward, dumping every weight that has moved me backwards for a very long time and just be as successful as I can. So whether you believe me or not, it does not matter. My name is Tonto Dikeh, I am a domestic violence victim. I’m a survivor.
