Tonto Dikeh Beats Ini Edo At Future Awards In Port-Harcourt.

Controversial Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh on Sunday, August 26, 2012 beat her colleague and fellow nominee in the Best Actor of the Year category at the Future Awards 2012 to win the coveted award.

The event, which is taking place in Port-Harcourt, River State, saw Tonto being announced the winner in the category of the award keenly contested by the two sexy and top actresses. 

Before now, shortly after they were announced as nominees in the category, Tonto reportedly took a jab on Ini Edo where she sarcastically told Ini not to play a reported prank she did at the build up to an award in 2011 which was then contested between Ini and Rita Dominic.

This seems to be the first major award Tonto Dikeh is winning after joining the movie industry in Nigeria for about six years ago. She has many movies to her credits.


2face Says: My children are the Greatest Things that happened to Me.

Innocent Idibia, aka Tuface, has had a chequered music career, no doubt. Apart from being highly sought-after by local and international promoters, as well as corporate brand managers across Africa, he is the darling of millions of music lovers in Nigeria.

But the multiple-award winning singer has also had his fair share of attacks from armed robbers, and unsavoury comments from members of the public who have not been positively disposed to his escapades.

In spite of the personal losses accruing from the chain of unpleasant events in his life, Tuface has emerged even stronger and more confident.

“I have been through a lot and I have learnt my lessons. Now, I am wiser than some old men. Honestly, at the peak of my trials, life almost ceased to mean anything to me. The negative publicity would have killed me and my music career. But it made me stronger, wiser, and a better person,” says Tuface.

“I want to encourage other Nigerians through my songs to learn from me. I am not a saint and I am not the devil either. Whatever experience I had was meant to prepare me for greatness in life,” he adds, smiling in his usual boyish manner.

And to those who still frown on his relationship with the opposite sex, he says, “My children are the greatest things that happened to me in this life and I appreciate their mothers.”
