MZVEE PRAISES TONTO DIKEH FOR GOING PUBLIC WITH HER MARITAL ABUSE

Ghanaian Dancehall artiste, Vera Hamenoo Kpeda (popularly referred to MzVee) has backed actress Tonto Dikeh for opening up about her marital abuse.

Tonto Dikeh in an interview few weeks ago spoke about her failed marriage to her estranged husband, Oladunni Churchill and the ordeal she had to endure during the marriage.

During the interview, Tonto Dikeh insisted that she suffered domestic violence while she was with her husband.

“The domestic violence is real. How I lived to suffer it and go through it over and over again, I do not understand. Alot of people have blamed me. A lot of people have said a lot of things. I stayed back in my marriage, not because of my child, but because I loved my husband with all of my heart. I stayed because he begged me to stay a couple of times,” the beautiful actress revealed with tears in her eyes.

MzVee who made an appearance on the award-winning Celebrity Fanzone last Saturday on GH One expressed her support for the actress, arguing that it will help a lot more other people come out to share their abuses in marriage.

“I am happy she came out like that because if you have that many people following you and you are able to speak up on something like this like Jessica said, a lot of people will follow.”

MzVee however rejected arguments that Tonto Dikeh is sharing too much of her personal life after she doubled down on her claim in several Tweets on Instagram last week.

“The truth will always provoke lies. Laughing and dancing to my New song.

“Gun my feet. Drunk my feet. Liars the only thing you get right is your lies.

“Things yahoo boys do. I live you to God. Fraudster! Jesus won already. I’m too focused on positivity. Say no to domestic violence!

“Who reads the news of how you killed our unborn through domestic violence? Murderer!

“Same man who read your news should looking on your 419 schemes as well, “God over everything,” the embattled actress Tweeted.

MzVee argued, “If she’s been able to keep this story for this long, I don’t think she had it in mind to come and tell everybody every single thing that had happened and for her to be saying all these outrageous things, people must have been saying too many things to make her just go and keep going and going…”

Jessica Opare Saforo, co-host of Celebrity Fanzone also backed Tonto Dikeh for coming out but cautioned against sharing too much of our private lives on social media.

“If she is able to come out the way she did, to tell her story, she’s opened a whole box of the people who go through domestic violence. I think that she is saying too much. As people, we need to measure what we share. We share too much. It is the like the need to share every aspect of our lives on social media is blinding us from what actually matters,” Jessica cautioned.

Celebrity Fanzone now airs on GH One TV every Saturday at 9pm.

tiffanyTiffany has given hints that she is putting together her debut album and has also zoomed in on her career after a nude video of her leaked on the internet.

Due to the several hits and award nominations that has to her credit one will easily be persuaded that Tiffany has about two or more albums recorded but the fact is she currently has no album as a recording artiste. Tiffany recently in an exclusive interview disclosed she is recording songs for her maiden album.

Although the name and release date of the album has not been set, Tiffany has recorded songs with Lousika, Efya and she is looking for to recording with Becca, Mzvee or Kaakie for the album.

According to Tifanny her first album will feature artistes from South Africa and Nigeria. The “fake London boy” hit maker anticipated that when the album is ready her fans will feel the crazy, fun, emotional and party side of her.

In 2014, a nude video of Tiffany was leaked on the internet which brought her under heavy criticism by Ghanaians and some sections of her fans, this incident almost ended her music career. In spite of the challenge, Tifanny has been able to push through and has overcome what nearly destroyed her brand.

Responding to how she was able to overcome the challenge, she stated that

“Me I know my purpose and I know what I am looking for and I feel like every human being goes through challenges in life being an artiste of a normal individual. People go through crises in life and I don’t think you have to let those things stop you from living so if you have been blessed with life and you still can breath you still be able to make something out of it. I don’t let anything I go through in life hold me back… and I have a strong team behind me.”

“No more” is her latest single and it’s gradually gaining traction on our airwaves.
