Glamsquad reports that Tonto Dikeh has stated that she will not return to Nollywood following the Rivers State governorship election.
The actress, who was recently named the African Democratic Congress (ADC) deputy governorship candidate in Rivers State, made the revelation during an interview.
She also stated that she will not return to acting if her party loses the governorship election in Rivers State.
“I don’t like movies like that again, and it’s been a long time since I acted on screen, you know,” the mother of one said when asked if she had completely retired from acting.
“I’ve acted in about two films in the last ten years; I appreciate that my path began in Nollywood; it is something I respect, but it hasn’t been a part of my life.”
“So it’s not something I’ll return to even after the election, but I’d love to contribute to the industry if I get into power.”
She went on to praise her colleagues Funke Akindele and Banky W for their political involvement.
“It is not easy for Funke and Banky W at their level to put themselves out there to effect change because there are criticisms and so many things involved,” she said.
“I believe in Funke and in Banky. I can hold onto something with them and say, “I believe they have a vision for the people.”
