Popular Nollywood actress, Tonto Dike made a surprise appearance in Ghana over the weekend and thrilled a section of Ghanaian music and movie fans with some Azonto dance moves while she showed off a rather large tattoo on her back.
She was not in town for her usual acting business. She came to co-emcee the much touted Stand Up GH concert by Imajin Advertising which brought in American stars Keri Hilson and Bow Wow.
Before the show, organizers at a press conference stated that they were keeping the identities of the show’s emcees a secret to surprise the audience and the media.
However a few hours to the show, Tonto and Keri Hilson granted an interview on Yfm fm, where it became obvious that she was going to be on stage that night.
She did not make too many appearances on stage as one may have thought.
NEWS-ONE cameras recorded her twice on stage after she was introduced.
Despite the few appearances she made, Tonto managed to get the audience loving her when she tried to do the popular Azonto dance.
It was quite obvious Tonto prepared for the Azonto and no wonder she impressed the audience.
It was James Gardner, who started it all, when he coaxed the actress into doing the dance that has gone international.
Tonto’s tattoo was however a subject of discussion among the show’s audience.
“It is a tattoo of herself; she must be really obsessed with whatever reason she got that big tattoo for,” somebody said from the audience.
Also, critics were not too happy with her makeup. Though they thought her outfit was to some extent awesome, her makeup was just too much.
“Tonto looks too fake with this make up. What kind of makeup is this? Oh please,” another fan said.
In the critics’ opinion, she has beautiful skin and could have done better with mild make up.
Tonto in Nollywood is described as one of the most controversial actresses to ever grace the silver screens.
She never gets out without controversy or scandal trailing her.**
