Nollywood goddess, King Tonto Dikeh has invented another controversial topic to keep the social media atmosphere buzzing and boisterous amid scourges of corona virus saga.

The Nollywood super star and philanthropist, King Tonto Dikeh has celebrated the 2020 Mother’s Day with a piece of powerful but mischievous advice to married ladies who are enduring difficult times in their marriages.

Tonto Dikeh who got divorced in 2017 from Olatunde Churchill said women should value themselves more than their marriage.

She condemned the attitude of some married women who endure abuse, assault and insult from their spouses just to be called married women. On the other hand, she applauded those women who walked out of abusive relationships, and those taking care of their babies as single moms.

Tonto Dikeh said that every woman deserves to be praised for their ability to carry babies for 9 months, and for their ability to withstand the body-changes that comes with pregnancy.

Taking to her Instagram handle with a picture of herself and son, Tonto Dikeh said, “It’s Mother’s Day again — a day to salute the strength of mothers.

“From the inception of pregnancy — the hormonal imbalance, weird cravings, and mood swings that come throughout the gestation period. It’s not a walk in the park to be a mom. And this is why you should carry your body with confidence. Those marks are stripes of your honor and strength.

“Today I’m celebrating every single mom too. It’s hard to be a married mother in this society already, how much more single moms who have to go extra miles to provide for their children?

“Single moms who are stigmatized by society; shamed and scornfully laughed at. Single moms who are seen as second class women — I celebrate you today.

“In most cases, they walked out of a dead beat father; they left an abusive partner; they made the choice to prioritize their sanity and peace. I’m proud of you.

“And to every mother who’s stuck in a bad marriage just because it’s expected of her. I’m here to tell you that motherhood is not the symbol of suffering. Stop self-sabotaging.

“Stop minimising your peace. Find the courage to leave any marriage that doesn’t serve your interests too. That time is over when we had to take anything just to be called mothers. We have broken that generational curse, and we are putting ourselves first.”
