Tonto Dikeh Finally Shares the Meaning of ‘POKO’

share on:

Famous Nollywood actress Tonto Dikeh, who most love to hate, has finally revealed the meaning of her favorite slang ‘POKO‘!

Who got the actress-turned-musician to loosen her tongue? None other than another controversial person – Sudanese-Egyptian author and poet Kola Boof herself!

Putting Tonto Dike and Kola Boof in the same sentence on any other occasion would probably be disastrous, but things actually didn’t turn out that bad between them as they exchanged pleasantries on social network Twitter.

Boof asked Tonto what the meaning of ‘Poko’ was, assuming it was a movie, and Tonto responded, explaining it is the name of her alter-ego.

Tonto has used the slang in her songs and in thousands of her tweets and in July announced she would give out N1m to one lucky Twitter fan that got the meaning of ‘Poko’.

Guess no one gets to be a millionaire. But then, her response begs the question: How does one name one’s alter-ego “Poko’?
