Check Out The Stunning Pictures Of Tonto Dikeh

Tonto Dikeh (born 9 June 1985), is a Nigerian actress, singer, and philanthropist. Dikeh hails from Rivers State and is of the Ikwerre tribe.

In 2005, she competed against other contestants on a reality TV show called The Next Movie Star; she was the first runner-up. Dikeh's appearance on the show was as a means of getting closer to the "big time", she says, and her start in the Nigerian movie industry came soon after.

Dikeh says that after her second movie Holy Cross, more movie directors and producers were willing to cast her, and she has appeared in scores of movies since. Dikeh's role in the movie Dirty Secret has generated controversy amongst Nigerians, because the movie contains nude scenes. While some criticised her role for being untraditional and un-African, others said that Dikeh was merely being professional.

Dikeh was born into the family of seven, she lost her mother at the age of 3. Dikeh is the 3rd child out of her 5 siblings and two of the siblings from her step mother
