Since beautiful and versatile actress, Tonto Dike, emerged the first runner-up at the Next Movie Star reality show in 2006, there is no doubt that she has steadily become one of the most sought-after in the extremely competitive industry.
Just at a time when the actress defended her role in the controversial movie, Dirty Secret, the rumour that she is having an affair with a 19-year old singer, Wiz Kid, began to spread like wild fire.
According to a source close to Tonto, “there is no iota of truth in the rumour.”
The source argued that it is disheartening that most times, the actress only finds herself a victim of circumstance.
“Tonto is a very decent girl with good heart. I can tell you that most of the things being written about her in the media are not true. If you get close to her, you will discover the real kind of person she is.
“I am convinced that it is some people who are envious of her success and steady rise to stardom that are sponsoring these baseless rumours. Just imagine it, how could Tonto be dating a 19-year old?
There is no iota of truth in it,” the source told NollywoodReel.
