Tonto Dikeh is one Nigerian actress that is well known for being stubborn both on a movie set or not. She made people believe differently when she proclaimed she has given her life to Christ.

Up on till she accepted Christ, she was seen as being stubborn and aggressive. In a recent interview, Nigerian Director by name Chima Okoroji talked about the actress and his relationship with her. In the interview, he revealed that the mother of one is a stubborn actress and also a kid as far the movie industry is concerned. He also stated that the relationship he had with Tonto is nothing but artist and director relationship, even though there was a time he and Tonto had misunderstanding on set.

According to Chima in an interview…

We are all like family on set. So, it is hard to have anything for them. The only person that has come to distract me on stage is Tonto Dikeh. It led to a misunderstanding with her but I stood my ground and didn’t cave in. We were taught that as a director, if you can’t keep emotion aside and gather your artiste; then you can’t be a director. We are all equal on set. When any talent goes beyond the space I give, I show them the kind of person I am.”

I tried several times to caution her in a very soft way. As a director, you have to know how to pamper your artiste. If you don’t pamper them, they would not give you the best. It does not mean that pampering works all the time, some talents are stubborn and as such pride stops them from learning. Tonto thought nobody can talk to her, and as far as I am concerned in this industry, she is a kid to me.
