Currently engaged as a speaker at the ongoing ‘Women For Women’ conference holding in Abuja, the dressing of Nollywood actress Tonto Dikeh, has been getting attention for being ‘conservative.’
Her recent pictures on Instagram show her in long gowns, skirt and blouse with hair covered in turbans, and all covered up in a hijab like a Muslim woman.
Involved in advocating for the welfare of the less privileged, the sombre outlook of the mother of one raised dust on her Instagram page as some of her fans think it is all a ploy to get sympathy. Recall the actress recently was engaged in amessy fight with her husband which resulted in her leaving her matrimonial home.
However in her defence, another fan, @shugar_1913, believed her dressing was appriopriate for the Ramadan season.
“You should give her credit for being all covered up and still gorgeous,” @shugar_1913 wrote.
Another fan retorted; “How dear u insult her @tontolet, what do mean by that? So dressing like a Muslim now means that you are a Muslim Abi?”
Yet another fan replied saying she could have dresses in a traditional Nigerian attire.
“Are you saying that the two options she has is either to dress this way or dress like she is going to club… Really, don’t we have other decent traditional dresses like Ikwerre traditional wear?
