Why I don’t attend burials – Tonto Dikeh explains

Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh, says she has never attended any burial due to a decision she made as a child.

Taking to her Instagram page on Thursday, she noted that the burial ceremony of her “mother” may be the first one she’d ever attend.

The star, who had been absent from social media for a while, had lost her stepmother who had been a mother figure to her.

“I have never attended a burial before. I will never attend one too. I said this when I was a child and I stick by it,” the grieving actress wrote.

“If I let you attend my mum’s I will owe you the same favour and I can’t repay that. If you love me, pray for my family. If you intend to support me, only pray for me.

“Don’t send a dime or a consolation message. I don’t do so well with that! But know I appreciate you all a lot and I’m grateful.”

Describing how she felt, Tonto Dikeh said, “My pain is bigger than you think. Your presence may mean a lot but I’ll love to grieve privately.”
