Tonto Dikeh Laments As Boy Dies Because Of Her
In a post shared on her Instagram page, the actress said the boy’s mother had messaged her and begged for money to take care of her sick child.
Dikeh disclosed that she ignored the message due to a similar experience she had with a random fan who defrauded of N370,000 under the guise that her baby needed medical attention.
The actress said she received another message the following morning from the woman she neglected, saying her son was dead.
She wrote: “Few weeks ago I helped a random fan with almost half a million naira( 370K) cause they had mad challenges and she showed a baby and all, one week later I just wanted to check on them.
“Boom the account has been deleted, I took it with good faith. I was so pissed, and felt used and taken for granted but I move on.
“FF to two days ago, I saw a similar message, seeking medical assistance. The way I deleted and ignored the message eh, this morning I opened my Dm the mother told me her son died. My eyes hurt from crying. My heart aches so bad.
“I will hate myself for a very long time. See the amount of damage one person’s lies and choices have caused. My heart goes out to everyone going through one thing or the other!
“I will beat myself up for this for as long as I stop feeling guilt but the person who made me ignore that message I pray you suffer more than the grieving mothers.”
KanyiDaily recalls that Tonto Dikeh was recently announced as the running mate of Tonte Ibraye, the governorship candidate of the Africa Democratic Congress (ADC) in Rivers State.
