Recently Divorced Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh, who marched against domestic violence alongside the Ooni of Ife’s wife and other celebrities, talked about domestic violence when interviewed by GoldmyneTV while on the march.
According to the light skinned actress, whose marriage to her ex-husband, Olakunle Churchill hit the rocks due to domestic violence amidst other allegations, pointed out there is no excuse for a man to beat his woman. The mother of one said;
“I think the one issue that actually births the high rate of domestic violence is the fact that we are not talking about it enough. It is the fact that the society is shaming us when we talk about it. So we rather not talk about it, we rather keep it on a hush hush until it is worse. This awareness will create so many…I am sure a lot of men now will be scared to beat their wives now because this awareness is no joke, there are heavyweights here. It is not about ridiculing.”
