Nollywood actress Tonto Dikeh explains why she was absent at Mercy Johnson’s wedding despite the fact that shortly before the wedding the Actors Guild of Nigeria under the leadership of Segun Arinze appealed to all members to put up an appearance at Mercy Johnson’s wedding except it is unavoidably impossible.
‘That’s not the reason I didn’t attend her wedding, it’s surprising,why people think you just have to be everybody’s friend’.
‘In the industry, I don’t know half of the producers and I work for them, I don’t even know half of my colleagues but I work with them’.
‘I kiss and hug them on set. We flow,we enjoy the friendship on set based on the energy and connection that exists between myself and the next person on set but that does not mean we are friends in the real sense of it’.
‘You can’t just be a friend to everybody,it’s a normal thing. Mercy Johnson is not just my friend’.
Asked if she had a serious quarrel with Mercy Johnson, she said; ‘Even if I had,I had let go everything.It doesn’t really matter to me anymore’.
Everybody is doing well, It’s just because we are not close,we only did about two or three movies together. We have never been close friends.
