Controversial Nollywood actor, Tonto Dikeh, and her politician cum anti-corruption activist lover, Prince Kpokpogri, have reportedly parted ways.
Mr Kpokpogri, who is popularly called the prince of Niger Delta, is also the chairman of the Anti-Corruption and Integrity Forum.
He also publishes Integrity Watchdog Magazine which is sold in Delta State.
The relationship reportedly crashed after a viral voice note and a phone call between Kpokpogri and a socialite was leaked online by a notorious Instagram gossip blogger.
In the voice note, the politician was overheard bad-mouthing the actress and complaining about her behaviour and addiction.
Although the voice sounded so much like Kpokpogri, he has maintained that the voice note was manipulated by mischief makers and is not in any way his voice.
In the audio file, the male speaker, who was alleged to be Kpokpogri could be heard agreeing that he slept with other women.
The voice credited to him was also heard complaining about Tonto’s incessant smoking and drinking because he did not like it.
The trending audio recording caused a stir in the online community and Kpokpogri was forced to make a terse statement to address the issue in an Instagram post where he dismissed the recording as fake.
His statement read, “Kpokpogri recording, Kindly disregard it, I will be on Instagram live on Sunday for clarity sake, distinguishing the fake voices from the real voice if need be,” he said.
But his rebuttal was not enough to salvage the relationship which was already on the brink of collapse
The blogger also claimed that Kpokpogri cheated on Dikeh with a Nigerian socialite and another public figure.
Dikeh and her lover have since unfollowed each other while Kpokpogri has set his Instagram handle to private to avoid and limit comments and unending insults from Dikeh’s fans.
The actress has also deleted the post she made on the occasion of his birthday that also announced their relationship.
