Grace Ama, a veteran Nollywood actress, revealed her thoughts about colleague Tonto Dikeh in a series of comments. According to her, Tonto should not be regarded as an icon or a movie celebrity.
The veteran actress made these comments in reaction to the post of a man identified on Facebook as Mike Nliam, a Nollywood movie producer who had blasted Amstel Malta for using Tonto Dikeh as their brand ambassador. It was in reaction to Mike Nliam’s post that Grace Ama called her colleague an immoral woman. She particularly branded Tonto as a woman who is undignified and a ‘bychance celebrity’ who has smeared the good name of the Nigerian movie industry in the mud.
Many other Nigerians reacted to the words of Grace Ama in different ways. While some agreed with her, a great deal of people insulted her and said she was jealous of her colleague’s success. In turn, Grace replied those who trolled her, insulting them.
