The couple got married and later had a son together, King Andre. Tonto also made it a point to flaunt expensive gifts online and claimed they were from her boo.
However, when things hit the rocks between them, Tonto started to spill dirty secrets and noted that Churchill did not give her any expensive gifts.
She noted that she was the one who sponsored their expensive wedding and that he made her believe he was the son of Nigeria’s former president, Olusegun Obasanjo.
Tonto seemed determined to ruin Churchill’s reputation online and accused him of being a fraudster aka ‘Yahoo boy’. According to her, she once caught him with a red cloth tied around his waist as he sat in the middle of candles with a laptop on his lap.

After her split from Olakunle Churchill, Tonto appeared to stay off the dating scene for a long while. However, she later found love in the arms of Delta state politician, Prince Kpokpogri.
The news of their relationship became public knowledge on Kpokpogri’s birthday when the actress made a ceiling-high cake for him and penned down a very emotional and loving note. Not stopping there, Tonto also gifted him a Hilux pickup truck.
However, it was just weeks after Tonto’s relationship with Kpokpogri became known that it started to face some troubles.
An audio recording leaked of Kpokpogri speaking of his exploits with other women and insulting Tonto. This audio led to their breakup.

Things haven’t taken a smooth turn for this Delta state politician after parting ways with Tonto.
The young man was reportedly picked up by the DSS for allegedly leaking the audio of a private conversation he had with Tonto in her vulnerable state.
This has now led to series of back and forth and name calling from both parties online. Kpokpogri also fired back by slamming a N10 billion lawsuit on Tonto and the DSS. According to him, they caused him emotional distress.
The politician also noted that contrary to popular belief, the Hilux Tonto gifted him was a refurbished pickup truck and the documents were in her name.
Tonto also claimed Kpokpogri is a serial blackmailer and that he has series of ‘intimate unclad’ tapes of married dancer, Jane Mena, and other women in his possession.
It is not clear if Tonto is still willing to give love a chance but many are willing to bet that her next relationship will be kept off social media.
