Nollywood actress Tonto Dikeh received a USD$106 000 Mercedes Benz as a gift for her 35th birthday, bringing the number of cars in her garage to six.
Dikeh’s new ride, a 2019 Mercedes Benz C300 4matic, is the second car she received for her birthday if the video she posted on Instagram showing off her latest baby is to be believed.
Cars are a passion for Dikeh, an actress who used to be a car dealer in Port Harcourt before she took part in reality Tv show – The Next Movie Star in 2005.
That movie was the big break that the actress cum singer needed before she got more regular roles, especially after the second movie she starred in, Holy Cross.
Before that, the actress said, directors and producers were reluctant to cast her.
Dikeh, who studied Petrochemical Engineering in the prestigious Rivers State University of Science and Technology, has a son from a marriage to Andre Omodayo.
The couple, which got married in 2015, divorced in 2017.
