How did it all begin?
About 2 and a half years ago ago, Tonto met her future husband at a nightclub in Lagos. Churchill was at his brother's celebration at the time. Six months later, the singer became pregnant and the couple had their traditional wedding. This event was held in Rivers State on the 29th August 2015.
Why didn't Tonto Dikeh marriage take place at church? The actress answered this question:
" The official wedding was never held because I was carrying a child. I was also pregnant when we celebrated the traditional wedding. Anyway, my family was very happy. They always wanted me to be happy in love. Of course, I was afraid that it would interfere with my career as an actress."
How did it end?
In February, journalists learned that the marriage was falling apart. Then almost every Nigerian found out who is Tonto Dikeh husband because the singer's personal life was enthusiastically discussed everywhere. Before that, he was only known as the nephew of Olusegun Obasanjo.
The actress moved out of the family house with her son. While this was Tonto's first marriage, Churchill has already been married before. He was once married to a woman named Bimbo Coker.
