Nollywood actress and single mom of one, Tonto Dikeh, has penned an open letter to women to celebrate International Women’s Day.
The actress took to her IG page writing;
Happy International Women’s Day,
Times have gone when you have to shrink yourself to be liked. Times have gone when what mattered to you was how people perceive you. Time has gone when you had to keep up with having to do the most but being under-appreciated. It’s time to own your womanhood; it’s time to walk confidently with your head high; it’s time to own your life. It’s time to stop sabotaging your self to accommodate people.
“Embrace your journey. Stop making choices to please everyone else but you. Chase your dreams effortlessly. They will call you names”. It’s envy. A successful woman is condemned by the society. Today, be thy woman who doesn’t care what society thinks. Steer your life to your desired direction. And remember that womanhood is not a test of suffering.”
