If you don’t know by now that Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh unleashed two music singles on Nigerians today, really, what planet have you been on?
Of course as with all things culture and entertainment related, the Twitter world had lots to say about Tonto’s endeavour. LOTS.
So much, we had to go beyond the traditional 10. Proceed with caution.
1. @Emsevens: Need a mosquito repellent???? Download Tonto Dikeh’s song and put it on replay. Works well in the tropics!

Even Boko Haram joined in at some point.
12. @_BokoHaram: Who or what is this Tonto Dikeh everyone is talking about? Is it an animal, place or thing? The frenzy captures The Sect’s curiosity.
13. @_BokoHaram: I am aware that a certain Tonto Dikeh has released a song titled #Poko. This corruption of The Sect’s brand name, #Boko is condemnable.
Thankfully, you can always count on those who refuse to go with the cynical crowd:
14. @BEZidakula: Tonto my dear, don’t mind them you will take over the world!!!
15. @snikoggs: Apparently dissing Tonto’s music is the new cool. You need to reevaluate yourself; hating one’s art to impress your friends makes you stupid
Now, that’s got to hurt.
