You might not know her but she’s described as the new Mercy Johnson.
In a recent interview with the SUN, the fast rising Nollywood actress, Queentessy Eze aka junior Mercy Johnson said Tonto Dikeh gave her the beating of her life when on set.
Queentessy said: –
“I like the way Stephanie Okereke comports herself and how she delivers her lines. I also love Chika Ike for her politeness and humility. Another person that surprised me on set is Tonto Dikeh. I had always admired her acting style and was opportune to work with her on the set of African Bride. She was meant to beat me up and she really gave me the beating of my life on set.
And I was like ‘after all, I know who she is so I am not surprised because I was expecting the Devil himself’. But against the beating and all the negative reports about her, especially in the media, I later found her a very down-to-earth and friendly person. She was such a delight on set.
I was surprised when she later came to my room and apologized. She hugged me and explained that she had to do it to bring out the best in me. And when I saw the film, I appreciated her for the beating.”
