Tonto Dike publicly passes the mantle to new husband, Kpokpogri, during her son’s graduation. She says to Kpokpogri “Andreh is now our…”
To pass the mantle in this context means that Tonto Dike has given her new husband, Kpokpogri the go ahead to take over the father responsibility from her.
If you recall, after Tonto Dike’s messy split from husband, Olakunle Churchill, she alone has been taking care of the offspring, Andreh that came forth from the Union.
Tonto Dike became Andreh’s mother and father after splitting with her former husband; since she did not, and still does not want any reconnection with him.
So, on Monday, 19th July, 2021 during her son’s graduation from the nursery class, she and her new husband, Kpokpogri were at the graduation ceremony, where Kpokpogri stood as a father figure for Andre.
As a matter of fact, Tonto even called Andreh , Kpokpogri’s child in one of her Instagram posts where she thanked him for his love, care and presence at son’s graduation.
