Between Tonto Dikeh, Her Ex, Malivelihood, The Snap Post & The New Tweet

Hahaha I’m actually having a good laugh here. Oh dearie dear! Lol. So yesterday Tonto Dikeh announced her hubby bought her a Lexus 2017 SUV and we all rejoiced with her by making a post out of it. Her ex however made a post on snap about his girl’s wristwatch buying two SUV’s and people took it that he was shading Tonto. So blogs carried it. The jeweler who however made the post on Snap, then posted some videos showing different cars, hence the reason for the first post, but people already took it that he was shading tonto.

But in a fresh tweet posted this morning, he says it’s crazy how people jump to conclusions saying he never shaded the actress and people should desist from causing problems. The tweet below.
