In a new Instagram post shared on her page, gorgeous Nollywood actress and mother of one, Tonto Dikeh gushes over her rival turned friend, Mercy Johnson and explained the reason why they were rivals before.
It’s no news to fans that the duo are now cordial with each other but it’s not forgotten so easily that they were sworn enemies – Tonto has now explained the reason why things were the way they were.
According to her, their feud was childish and it was because she was envious that Mercy Johnson was the only one who could act better than her in the Nigerian movie industry.
She said she has now realized that to be herself is better so she has stopped wanting to be like Mercy.
Sharing a throwback photo of them together, Tonto wrote,
