Rivers State born Nigerian screen goddess Tonto Dike have revealed that she quite chain smoking last May after getting a miracle from pastor TB Josuah via his Emmanuel Tv network on satellite. The controversial actress disclosed that although she started smoking at a tender age of 13,she never believed she could leave the habit which have virtually become a part of her.
Tonto Dike first came into the public glare when she contested in the ‘Next Movie Star’ reality tv show where she was a runner up. She has been known for several controversies due to her lifestyle and hard core ‘never caring’ attitude. Earlier this year she had taken her smoking critics to the cleaners as she simply advised them to get a life and ignore her own choosen mode.
Recently she revealed how she got saved from the smoking habit, “I was watching a program on TV with Prophet T.B. Joshua and he was laying hands on people and praying for them. I love to watch his programs on Emmanuel TV. When he was praying, he said, ‘Lay your hands on the TV’ and I just laid my hands that day. I actually needed something else from God, not to quit smoking because I loved smoking! However, after praying I sat back and I think I slept off.”
After a short nap, Tonto awoke and attempted to smoke as usual. However, according to her, something inexplicably supernatural had happened. “When I woke up, I took a stick of cigarette and I felt crazy. I couldn’t even imagine that I took it up to smoke in the first place. It felt like poison!” An addiction of 14 years was ended through a simple prayer on television. Three months down the line, Dikeh has remained clean from smoking.
Judging by online reaction to Tonto’s revelation, it appears her experience is not an isolated one. Many viewers of Joshua’s Emmanuel TV testified to similar experiences, including Lovemore Chibvongodze from United Kingdom who told the official T.B. Joshua Ministries Facebook Page, followed by close to 300,000 people, how his 34 year addiction to smoking and drinking alcohol ended through prayers on Emmanuel TV.
It would be recalled that late last year the actress had a fight with Ghannian actor,Van Vicker who couldn’t stand her penchant for smoking.
