Since beautiful and versatile actress, Tonto Dike, emerged the first runner-up atÂ the Next Movie Star reality showÂ in 2006, there is no doubt that she has steadilyÂ 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, DirtyÂ Secret, the rumour that she is having an affair with a 19-year old singer, Wiz Kid,Â began to spreadÂ like wild fire.
According to a source close to Tonto, â€œthere is no iota of truth in the rumour.â€
The source argued that itÂ is disheartening that most times, the actress only findsÂ herself a victim of circumstance.
â€œTonto is a very decent girl with good heart. I can tell you that most of the thingsÂ being written about her in the media are not true. If you get close to her, you willÂ discover the real kind of person she is.
â€œI am convinced that it is some people who are envious of her success and steadyÂ rise to stardom that are sponsoring these baseless rumours. JustÂ imagine it, howÂ could Tonto be dating a 19-year old? There is no iota ofÂ truth in it,â€ the sourceÂ told NollywoodReel.
