Tonto Dikeh and Mercy Johnson irons up differences as Tonto tenders a public apology to Mercy

Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh, took to Instagram to apologized to her colleague Mercy Johnson who she blasted back in 2013, for reappearing on the scene 4 months after giving birth to her first child, Purity, in US.

Back in 2013, Mercy returned to Nigeria from the US, 4 months after she delivered her baby Purity and immediately went back to the scene to continue with her acting career.

Tonto Dikeh (who at that time had no child) mocked at Mercy, saying it was her husband who pushed her to work because they were broke.

Tonto's provocative 2013 tweet:

"@TONTOLET: Wen n if I give birth, God plz provide mii wit a husband dat can provide 4uz, Not 1 dat wld send mii bck to actin 2monthz after I born 2Huzzle"

Replying to Tonto during an interview, Mercy said:
'It was a friend who called to tell me a colleague in Nollywood is questioning my decision to go back to acting soon. I only asked her a question, I said: 'Did the actress mention my name?' she said no. But my fans are insinuating that she was talking about me, so they fired back at her with insult and all.

I am a moving train by the special grace of God in heaven. I will continue to do good for myself and my fans who have stood by me all these years. I have no beef with nobody. I am a cool person and i ahte and fear troubles. I always pray for those that wish for my downfall.''

Yesterday, Tonto took to Instagram to apologize to Mercy four years after the incident. Read Tonto's apology :
Good morning world Since I have your undivided attention I better make good use of it and not miss the blessing in this lesson!!!

@mercyjohnsonokojie Ever since I had my baby I have been reminded constantly about an ill statement I made about one of your kids a very long time ago. I want to use this media to say I am so sorry. I sincerely apologize from the bottom of my heart. I had no
right to say what I did, I totally disgraced myself with that.
As a mom I do realize a lot of things I take in because of the love of my son and I know you only took my insult because of that same love..I am sorry MJ, I am sorry to your lil' girl or boy..We don't have to love each other to realize when we are/went wrong.
I have/had no excuse for my behaviour and I also apologize to the fans I hurt/Let down with my words that day many years ago ..To Err is human but to forgive is divine!!!Am not trying to be the better person,You deserve this apology for your Child for the Love I have for God..I found God and everything in my life changed,Let me tell you about him sometime..
God bless you and yours!!! Happy new year...Take your time with the process of forgiving my ill mannered words to your infant but pls eventually do!!#2017 Amending All my Wrongs#2017 my year of positivity #Long over due apology

The peace loving Mercy Johnson replied her colleague, saying she forgave her immediately she (Tonto) had her son. Read after the cut...
@tontolet am shaking and in tears as I read your post.I have learnt the more this morning that the holyspirit is true,cus by him you were in my prayers last night and this in shock.I always heard of what an Angel you are.Please,I forgave you immediately King came because I knew that u would have understood how it hurt me.I Love you and I am short of words now but thank you and trust me I wish so much happiness and already hugging you so tightly. it is well and Purity is Blowing you a kiss too.My God Will Bless You and Keep you Ahead always. MAMAPURITY. 

That was quite mature of Tonto, and the world can acknowledge with me that the family life she is living now has practically changed the bad girl in her, and we salute her courage and bravery, because it is not easy to tender a public apology.

'Tonto Dikeh my beautiful sister, I was your fan before, but your action has made me admire and appreciate you more. Thank God for Churchill and King. Remain the BEST that you are. Much Luv. HTL'.
