OPEN LETTER: Dear Tonto Dikeh, Consider Licking Honey More Often To Deal With Your Bitterness — S. Faleye [MUST READ]

Renowned American poet, singer and memoirist Maya Angelou, once etched these wise words about Bitterness;

“Bitterness is a Cancer – it eats up the host.
It doesn’t do anything to the object of it’s displeasure.”

When in 2006 you made a humbling entrant on the big Nigerian movie industry, you were received with expectations that your career held infinite promises, and you were going to be a significant reference point and success story to aspiring younger girls coming behind you. I must confess, you have disappointed a lot of us that believed you held promises, and you have beyond doubt faired extremely poorly too as a role model.

A simple fact check suggests that you have thrived more for internet sensationalism and controversies than you have at any point in your less than twenty years of career, that apparently held promises but which you murdered before it even took flight. Thanks to your apparent character stink.

You now reek of overt paranoia and covert bitterness, that you’ve now turned yourself into a butt of joke at bear palours, market square, campus hostels, amongst your colleagues, fans and Nigerians.

Like the proverbial insane person dancing in the market-square, where all onlookers are entertained watching on, but in real sense no one wishes to have the insane person as a relative.

Darling Tonto, people fall in and out of love everyday for numerous reasons including irreconcilable differences, incompatibility and mismatch. These things are part of life.

One lesson I consider pivotal for you to learn as a divorced single mum, is that, in cases of a fallout like this, rather than attacking your erstwhile partner, learn to confront issues.

You should be logically focused at underpinning circumstances that caused the rift between you two, rather than come to the public to demonize Olakunle Oladunni Churchill; while you try to smell like a rose. Healthy minds confronts situations; unhealthy, dysfunctional and bitter minds attack people.

Like you have been doing all along!

More often than not, you leave informed and deciphering minds like mine, wondering, if you assume that all internet-savvy Nigerians are as gullible and unintelligent as you’re (or as you’ve proven to be).

Actually, only your unsuspecting and uninformed fans scoop your lies without subjecting them to scrutiny.

Well, congratulations on your new relationship, and weldon with your acclaimed ‘celibacy’ too.

But really, if you have moved on like you try to make the world believe, why engage in a ‘reverse-psychology fight?’ When you come public, assassinating the personality of your ex-lover, by calling informing the world that he wasn’t man enough to pleasure a woman, it seem to me you’re deliberately attempting to discredit him, by making other women uninterested in him, thereby giving you a leeway to return to him when you deem fit.

Apparently, you haven’t gotten over Churchill!
He was a 40 seconds rider, a carrier of STIs, yet, you hung in, on the same penis for years, until things fell apart.

Howbeit, premature ejaculation isn’t even a terminal disease; if it were true he suffered that, he could get medical help after all. So, whatever it was you tried to achieve with that, was busted. Better luck next time.

You might also need to disembark from your disillusioned ivory tower, to realize that you were not worth anyone’s lies.

Your Ex-husband had a reputable family background, and it appeared, you were disillusioned thinking you could latch on that goodwill.

After Churchill lost his biological father about 22 years ago, he was raised into the esteemed gentleman he currently is today. It appeared upon realizing you turned out disappointed when you realized you couldn’t use the name ‘OBASANJO’ ; but your ex-husband was Olakunle Oladunni Churchill.

That didn’t sit down well with you! Realizing you might not be digging a goldmyne from the arrangement, you already started to show yourself a way out of the relationship.

The (only) existing Court Order over Andre’s custody; was dated 11th of October 2017 with suit no. FCT/CC/DU/CV/176/2017. The court ruled that all documents of your son must bear the surname of your ex-husband, Olakunle by right, while the international passport of your son must be kept in the bank, and must not be released except with written consent of both parent.
Yet, you fraudulently, go behind court orders to secure a new passport, with a change of name, with Andre bearing your surname.

You denied the father of your son access to his child, you also instructed his school not to give his father access to him.

Having done that, who would expect the man to keep paying for tuition of a child you have blocked him from seeing.

How would Churchill trust that if he kept sending you money for little Andre’s fees, you were not going to use his money to keep funding your glamorised lifestyle of drug abuse? Since you’re heavy on weed.

Recently, you sold a Toyota Prado belonging to your darling alleged ‘Yahoo Yahoo’ ex-husband, for 22million naira; why couldn’t you take Andre’s upkeep money from the pool.

You’re simply hypocritic.

Enough said already, it is just important you remember, that you can only protect three year old Andre from his father. When he stops being an infant years on, and he grows into an opinionated adult, he will know the truth about how you maligned his father from his childhood, thanks to your over bloated ego.

And all the venoms you have littered the social media space with, Andre will grow to see through the prowling deceit.

Bitterness is like taking a poison and hoping your enemy would die. Truth is end up hurting your own self. Actually, you don’t have an enemy in Churchill. The man has moved on, you should too.

And yes, you should consider honey on your diet menu lately, it helps deal with bitterness and you reek with it.

Best wishes

Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde In A Happy Mood As She, Children Recover From COVID-19

Prominent Nollywood actress, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, is excited about her recovery and those of her children from COVID-19.

A few weeks ago, the actress revealed that she contracted coronavirus and infected her children.

However, the actress took to her Instagram page on Sunday to express her joy as she and her children are now COVID-19 free.

She wrote: “I am grateful to God Almighty the Lord of lords for all He has done for my family and I. He is truly a dependable Friend if you trust in Him.

“I’ll also like to thank you all for your love, prayers, calls, messages, posts, and thoughts. All truly appreciated.

“My kids and I are fine and COVID free now, and I do not take the experience for granted at all.

“If you still don’t believe that this virus is real, I pray you don’t experience it to believe.

“If you ever feel ill during this pandemic, pls know there’s nothing to fear or be ashamed of…you’re not alone.

“Pls get TESTED immediately, it could save your life. Many have had COVID and treated it as fever, malaria, etc and luckily they’ve been fine….( note that symptoms are different and viral loads vary). However, a problem with that is they have probably gone on to infect others since they were not monitored or guided. The average span for a COVID infection if not severe is 2 weeks (14 days ) when you should totally isolate so as not to infect others.

“Make sure to use vitamins – VitC (1000ml), vitamin D, and Zinc daily, and please WEAR A MASK. Please maintain physical distancing, wear a mask properly, and wash your hands regularly.

“I’ll also like to thank the amazing lead Dr who treated me Dr Folarin Opawoye; and finally, my husband whose Love and Faith nursed us back to health. To God Alone be all the Glory. Thank you all.”

The executive committee of Afro-Heritage Broadcasting And Entertainment Awards …. (AHBEA) wishes to congratulate and felicitate with its executive producer, Mr Yisa Sola Olaniyan, – who is also the executive director of afro heritage entertainment promotions, a USA based entertainment company – on his enthronement as the 46th Oba of Ipokia Kingdom in Ogun State.

Oba Yisa Sola Olaniyan’s fervent belief in the promotion of African arts and culture to the rest of the world gave birth to the idea of AHBEA. His unflinching support and logistics have sustained and maintained AHBEA’s consistency for five uninterrupted years even in the face of so many financial constraints.

Many times, we had thought of canceling AHBEA because of finances but he muscles his way to coughing out funds just to make each year a success.

We, undoubtedly, believe that where he is today is Olodumare’s doing. Your love for people, irrespective of background, race or colour, most especially the people of Ipokia kingdom has eventually paid off.

May your reign usher in more progress in human and material form for Ipokia. May your years be long on the throne of your forefathers. May Olodumare and the ancestors continue to guard and guide you to the right path, Kabiyesi.

Yomi Fash-Lanso
