Gideon Okeke started the rift when he stylishly threw a shade at Tonto Dikeh after she revealed that she had finally gotten engaged.
The controversial actress had released pictures of her traditional marriage to Churchill Olakunle Oladunni last week and the news of the introduction ceremony was greeted with mixed feelings from her fans and foes.
Following the so many reactions on social media concerning the marriage, Gideon Okeke in his own tweets, had said,
“Ha! So Aunty last last marries “Mr X”. Not like it’s stops the rain from pouring tho.”
Apparently, the actress didn’t find the tweet funny as she fired back in a not too coherent tweet saying, “Watch who you are talking to.”
Gideon Okeke seems to have had a rethink of the situation and looks to build back the already burnt bridge.
In an exclusive chat with Punch Saturday Beats, Gideon said he had no issue with Tonto Dikeh while adding that people misunderstood his tweet.
“I really do not want to comment on this but for what it is worth, my tweet was not done with malicious intent. It was not against Tonto Dikeh. I only said what a lot of people had in their minds but could not speak up. What I meant by that tweet was finally, she has revealed Mr. X because she had baited us for a while with Mr. X and now we finally know Mr. X.
That was the tone of my tweet and I excuse people for not understanding. I know she has a huge followership and I excuse them for the misconception because you don’t know where they are coming from or where they have been in life. I have since moved on and I am part of the cast for the movie, 93 Days, which is a story about Dr. Ameyo Adadevo.”
