Nollywood media reports say actress Tonto Dikeh and a Nigerian politician are neck deep in a debt scandal. According to Nigeriafilms.com, “One Ibadan politician called Rotimi Ajanaku allegedly borrowed money from Tonto and is refusing to pay back.
“Tonto was introduced to Rotimi by fat Yoruba actress Eniola Badmus. Both became friends to the extent that Rotimi ran into debt in January this year. He called Tonto and begged her for a loan, explaining that he needed to settle the bills of the lady who had delivered a baby for him amongst other bills.
He asked for a loan of N5million (GHC 59544.67) which she gave him and he promised to pay her back after five days when the cheque he was expecting cleared but he didn’t redeem his promise and instead began to dodge the actress even to the extent of deleting her from his blackberry friends list and refusing to take her calls.”
“The actress gave the politician an ultimatum to pay the borrowed sum or she would involve other friends but Mr. Ajanaku did not respond. The actress finally told their mutual friends about it.
The mutual friends now informed the actress to step back and join the list of ladies waiting to collect back their monies from the suave talking politician who becomes incommunicado the minute he collects any loan,” the site claimed.
