Tonto Dikeh, Nollywood actress, has signed a N100 million deal with Zikel cosmetics.
The talented yet controversial movie star took to her Instagram page on Wednesday to reveal details of the “mouth watering” contract.
“KING TONTO joins the ZIKEL COSMETICS family as its Brand Ambassador and the first Nigerian to be paid a whopping sum of N100,000,000 per annum as endorsements for a makeup brand in Africa ! Legally endorsed and managed by Manifield Solicitors,” Dikeh’s repost from Zikel cosmetics’ Instagram page reads.
“Welcome King Tonto . Our everyday crush.”
The endorsement, which will definitely make the movie star the “first Nigerian celebrity to be paid such amount for being an ambassador of a makeup brand in Africa,” is coming few weeks after she had dominated the conversation in the most well-populated corners of Twitter Nigeria.
Tonto had earlier released a three-part video where she narrated mind-boggling details of her controversial breakup with Olakunle Churchill, her ex-husband.
Dubbed ‘The Evidence’, the movie star is seen in the video making claims that Churchill is a ritualist and a fraudster.
The controversial actress, who got married to Churchill in 2015, further alleged that he can not stay more than 40 seconds with a woman in bed.
The actress also slammed Ifeanyi Dike, chairman of the board of trustees (BoT) of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), following the “threat” to sanction her.
Due to her utterances, Dike had warned that the AGN would sanction her “if she continued to portray the AGN in a bad light.”
