Tonto Dikeh had called her daughter Purity a ‘witch’ after Mercy resumed acting, 4 months after giving birth to her first child, Purity, in US back in 2013.
But she didn’t include full names, just initials as she said in a subtle tweet – many who believed the tweet was referring to Mercy Johnson engaged Tonto in a twitter war – and then Tonto replied:
‘Every1 who comes to ma tl to Rant Abt ur FOOL MJ is a bigger baztard Dan SHE is coz I never cald no Bitch’z Name**F*ck U**
Like that wasn’t hurtful enough, she then took a very direct shot at Mercy Johnson:
“Bitch Lozt her Name, U gonno Uze mii az A come back???Naaahhhhh go Nurze Ur Witch Bitch** #StayBlessed”Mercy in a reply later on during an interview when asked how she felt when she heard that Tonto talked mean about her, said:
‘It was a friend who called to tell me a colleague in Nollywood is questioning my decision to go back to go back to acting soon. I only asked her a question, I said: ‘Did the actress mention my name?’ she said no. But my fans are insinuating that she was talking about me, so they fired back at her with insult and all.
I am a moving train by the special grace of God in heaven. I will continue to do good for myself and my fans who have stood by me all these years. I have no beef with nobody. I am a cool person and i hate and fear troubles. I always pray for those that wish for my downfall.
Apologizing for her wrong deeds, Tonto then took to IG few moments ago to write:
Good morning world Since I have your undivided attention I better make good use of it and not miss the blessing in this lesson!!!
