Nollywood Actress and mother-of-one, Tonto Dikeh has given a copious reason why she has never and will never attend a funeral.
According to Tonto, she made a resolve as a child never to attend a burial and she will stick with it. She also asserted that when she loses a family member or loved one, people should not send her money or consolation because she doesn’t do so well with that.
In her words ;
I have never attended a burial before.
I will never attend one too, I said this when I was a child and I will stick by it..
My moms burial will/might be my first ever, to all my friends who think I am shutting them out.
My reason is I don’t attend burials, If i let you attend my moms I will owe you same favor and I can’t repay that.
If you love me pray for my family, if you intend to support me only pray for me..
Don’t send a dime or a consolation message, I don’t do so well with that!!!
But know I appreciate you all a lot and I am grateful.
MY PAIN IS BIGGER THAN YOU THINK..
Your presence may mean a lot BUT I’ll love to grieve privately
