Estranged husband of actress Tonto Dikeh, Churchill Olakunle in an interview with Encomium addressed all rumours surrounding his marital crisis.
First on the menu was a claim by Nollywood actor Uche Maduagwu alleging he has a romantic relationship with Bobrisky and stylist Jeremiah Ogbodo.
“Well, I don’t know Bobrisky but got to know Swanky Jerry through my wife. I believe whoever my wife likes as a friend, I also take as a family friend.
“Am too busy to think of such unpleasant issues, let alone cooking up defense.”
He had this to say about claims of an affair with his PA and absconding from home.
“Well, it’s funny to me, because I don’t have female personal Assistant, My PA is Mr. Paul, who has been working with me over the years. Besides, it was a sponsored blackmail.”
On whether Tonto pushed his mother and vandalised her home due to marijuana reactions, Churchill said.
“These issues are private to me and my family.
“I have evidence of CCTV Cameras in my mum’s house when this happened. It can be replayed if you want us to go that far.”
On tales of domestic violence, he said.
“Rumours going around she moved out due to domestic violence from me, I wonder where they got such gist from.
“I don’t believe my wife will say that, besides I frown against such even my foundation preach against domestic violence in some of our charity awareness campaigns. It is obvious that all these channeled attacks are targeted to drag my image and what I believe in to the mud.
“Well, the truth is that I have never raised my hands against my wife.
Asked how he felt about all the rancho in his family, he noted,
“I see nothing in it, it’s a phase of life; since it does not affect my cheques and savings.
“But I truly want to call on bloggers or social media addicts to verify facts before assuming. Every marriage has good and bad moments; it’s just unfortunate that I recently discovered that the alleged marriage instability is making headlines on some media platforms.
“Please Tonto Dikeh fans and well-wishers take it easy on her, guess she is still adjusting to motherhood. With time, it will be well.”
Regards to the couple’s son birthday celebration, Mr X stated
“Oh! My son, I sure miss him so much. I had planned a worthwhile birthday party for him with friends and family members but it’s sad to say that all effort to reach him proved abortive, and this is affecting my business and emotions.
“The mum won’t pick calls and the nanny. Our son has been with the mother and not at home for now”.
“I truly, should not be granting this interview if this is all about my family.
“I am very optimistic that the family will unite together for King Andrea birthday even though channels to reach my wife are temporarily off,” he added.
Very interesting……. Y’all should just bury the hatchet and keep it moving.
