Tonto Dikeh Forgives Her Ex-Husband For Her Son’s Sake!
Popular Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh, said she has forgiven her ex-husband, Churchill Olakunle, for the sake of her son, King Andre.
The actress said this on Sunday during an interview with, Dele Momodu while speaking on the importance of forgiveness. She disclosed that she has gotten to read the part of the bible where God said he wouldn’t forgive us if we do not forgive others.
In her words:
“A man I love and respect always, talked to me about forgiveness and I have come to realize that forgiveness is not about the next person.
I know that forgivessness is not about the next person but the explanation I got recently really wowed me. It says I have forgiven you not because you have to be forgiven, I have forgiven you because I do not want to put myself in a place of stagnation when it comes to growth, I do not want to put myself in a place of stagnation when it comes to love, i do not want to put myself in a place of warship, progressing, my career.
Forgiveness is a whole lot and I only just realized that the bible says that if we do not forgive, God cannot forgive us. All these things are in the bible but it never really made an impact to me until someone really explained it.
So today I would tell you that for me it comes really easy. I forgive alot but I just don’t like to get provoked by the things that you do after it. I think forgiveness is an essential for ones growth”
When asked if there is anyone she would never forgive in her life, Tonto said:
”As at this moment, there is nobody I have not forgiven as of today 26 July 2020.
As of today, there is nobody I hold a grudge on but there are people who I have forgiven but I would never have a relationship with again” she said
Speaking of her ex-husband Churchill, the actress added:
Oh yes, especially him. I forgive him and wish him the best, for my son’s sake. I do. Why not?”
