NollyNollywood actress Tonto Dikeh

The Tonto Dikeh’s Foundation has been awarded the ‘philanthropic group of the year’ at the 7th Uncommon Personality Awards 2021.

The actress shared the news on Instagram on Friday as she revealed that her foundation was recognised for its outstanding performance in nation-building.

“Yesterday during the just concluded 7th uncommon personality awards and lecture 2021 the chairman of the organizing committee and founder issued this statement; this is to satisfy that the advisory committee of uncommon personality awards (UPA) is pleased to award KING TONTO DIKEH’S FOUNDATION as philanthropic group of the year,” Tonto wrote.

This is coming a few weeks after Tonto was involved in an ambassadorial saga with the Nigeria Christian Pilgrims Commission (NCPC).

Tonto had announced that she was named the NCPC ambassador for peace-building after a meeting with its executive secretary Rev. Yakubu Pam.

However, Pam on a later date said on social media that Tonto only visited his office and was never made the NCPC ambassador.
