Mercy Johnson, Nollywood actress, says she has forgiven her colleague, Tonto Dikeh, for calling her child a “witch” several years ago.


Dikeh had early on Friday issued an apology on Instagram, saying she deeply regrets her comments and asked for Johnson’s forgiveness.

She said motherhood and her newfound relationship with God moved her to seek forgiveness.

In response, Johnson said she forgave Dikeh when she became a mother and noted that she prayed for her “last night”.


Johnson, like Dikeh, also took to Instagram to post her response.

“I love you and I am short of words now but thank you and trust me I wish so much happiness and peace. I’m already hugging you so tightly. It is well and Purity is blowing you a kiss too.

“My God will bless you and keep you ahead always,” Johnson wrote.
