Estranged nanny of Tony Dikeh’s son, Mrs. Mgbechi Enyinnaya, has accused the Nollywood actress of subjecting her to all forms of emotional and psychological abuse while working for her.
The 56-year-old native of Imo State, who opened up on what really transpired between them in a chat with journalists in Lagos on Sunday after a video showing her being questioned by Dikeh in company of others went viral on the internet over the weekend, said that contrary to claims by the actress of showing her love by regularly gifting her money for her children, she had never done so.
Though Enyinnaya acknowledged that Dikeh had on a number of occasions given her clothes for two of her children, she dismissed most of what Tonto said, in a disclaimer over the weekend, as false.
She said, “Throughout the period I worked for Tonto, she always assaulted me verbally. At the slightest opportunity, she would rain abuses on me and tell that she would scatter me if I wasn’t careful.
I lived in that house with her despite all the constant harassment because of her son, King. I loved the boy like my own child and it was because of him that I stayed long with her. She has never given me money to give to my children.
She also explained that the only thing her boss did was to give her some of the clothes she wanted to distribute to motherless babies homes to give to her children.
She said, “Tonto said that she had taken me to 15 countries, let her show the world my passport and the copy of the visas she claimed to had obtained for me.
The only place we went outside Nigeria together was Ghana and it was her husband, Churchill, that took us there. The video she posted online was not the complete version. All the things I said, they did not show it.”
She also added that the video only showed where she and others were intimidating her; that they never allowed her to talk. She insisted the Tonto should tell the world the truth, “I worked for her diligently and had never conspired with anyone to tarnish her image.” She concluded.
