Drama As Tonto Dikeh, Angela Okorie Fight Over Naira Marley’s Phone Number
Former actress-turned-politician, Tonto Dikeh and her colleague, Angela Okorie have engaged in some ‘back-and-forth’ over Naira Marley‘s phone number.
It all began after Okorie posted one of the trending videos of the late singer Mohbad while alive.
The video depicted the singer of “Blessed” in distress on a hospital bed, recounting his encounter with individuals allegedly from the National Drug Law and Enforcement Agency (NDLEA).
He also expressed the hurt stemming from being betrayed by Zinolessky, his former record label mate under Marlian Music.
The actress and singer, captioning the video, mourned the pain endured by MohBad during his lifetime, questioning the reasons behind the suffering he experienced.
She bade his soul eternal rest even as she underscored the wickedness in the hearts of men.
She wrote: What exactly did he do to deserve such cruelty. I’m sooo broken.
“Ahhhhh the heart of men is desperately wicked. God will Rise!! Rest on King #ripmohbad
Reacting as with so many others under the post comment section, Tonto who had earlier knocked Naira Marley over his ‘taking Mohbad’s fans for a fool’ condolence post, requested for the Marlian huncho’s number, dubbing him Angela’s bestie.
She wrote: “Give me Naria Marley no. He is your bestie sis. I Dey wait
But Angela immediately made another post where she faulted Tonto for publicly requesting for Naira Marley’s phone number which she didn’t deny having.
She accused Tonto of clout-chasing noting if that wasn’t the case, she would have opted for a private recourse considering they both had each other’s numbers and often spoke over the phone.
Expressing her grievance over Dikeh’s action, Okorie stated: “Tonto better stop that nonsense ask me Naira’s number privately and I will gladly give you.
“Coming on public to ask for the number you clearly know I will have, we talk on the phone so stop clout chasing with what is going on.
“We all are fighting for the truth and nothing but the truth. Nobody should drag me on this cos me my self-have been crying my eyes out since they took the life out of this young man.
“I mean it could have been me, I was shot too, the evil you protect will speak against you tomorrow, na for this same industry dem shot me too.”
Taken aback by her colleague’s outburst and ‘clout-chasing’ accusation, Tonto replied: “Which one be clout??? If you vex finish we go kiss and makeup!!!
“Na so I take fight for you go take fight for another person!!! Nothing is private about this matter!!
“If you write this kind episode Ontop nothing e be say you don carry me for mind!!! #Peaceout.”
Firing back, Angela added: “Na you carry me for mind for you to write me publicly knowing fully well that you have my number.
“For Christ sake it’s a sensitive issue right now, someone is dead and we need Justice.”
