Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh, has apologised for making “ill-mannered” comments about Mercy Johnson’s child.


Tonto took to Instagram Friday morning to say she uttered the words a “very long time ago”, and noted that as a new mother who has found God, she now regrets her words.

The actress said she “disgraced herself” with the act and also begged Johnson for forgiveness.

“Good morning world. Since I have your undivided attention I better make good use of it and not miss the blessing in this lesson.


“Mercy Johnson Okojie, ever since I had my baby I have been reminded constantly about an ill statement I made about one of your kids a very long time ago.

“I want to use this media to say I am so sorry, I sincerely apologize from the bottom of my heart. I had no right to say what I did, I totally disgraced myself with that.

“As a mom I do realize a lot of things I take in because of the love of my son and I know you only took my insult because of that same love.


“I am sorry MJ, I am sorry to your Lil’ girl or boy. We don’t have to love each other to realize when we are/went wrong.

“I have/had no excuse for my behaviour and I also apologize to the fans I hurt/let down with my words that day many years ago ..To Err is human but to forgive is divine.

“Am not trying to be the better person. You deserve this apology for your child for the love I have for God. I found God and everything in my life changed.

“Let me tell you about him sometime. God bless you and yours. Happy new year. Take your time with the process of forgiving my ill-mannered words to your infant but pls eventually do.”
