Tonto Dikeh, Nigerian actress, says she will not be running to Nollywood after the Rivers governorship election in 2023.
Dikeh was picked as the deputy governorship candidate of the African Democratic Congress (ADC) in the state.
Speaking with BBC Pidgin, Dikeh said she is over and out with movie making.
“I don’t like movies like that again and it’s been a long time since I acted on screen, you know,” she said.
“I’ve acted in about two films in 10 years, I appreciate that my path started from Nollywood, it is something that I respect, but it’s not something that has been in my life.
“So even after the election, it’s not something I’ll return to, but I’ll love to contribute to the industry when I get into power.
“It is not easy for Funke and Banky W at their level to put themselves out there to effect change because criticisms and so many things are involved.
“I believe in Funke, I believe in Banky. With them, I can hold onto something and say I believe that they have a vision for the people.”
