A controversial Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh, has found love again in the arms of a politician cum anti-corruption activist, Prince Kpokpogri.
The actress, who has apparently been seeing Mr Kpokpogri for a while now, broke the news on her Instagram handle on Sunday morning on the occasion of his birthday.
While wishing him a happy birthday with a passionate love message, she wrote, “You’ve shown me that love is best presented as true as they come. You put a spring in my step. Falling in love with you is like the wildest roller coaster ride. Because of you, I have gotten to appreciate the finer things in life.”
“Thank you for making me a better woman. Thank you for bringing immense joy and happiness to me as a woman. Thank you for changing me to the woman I am today.”
