After an embarrassing fall, coupled with an odd performance at Iyanya’s Kukere concert in London over the last weekend, Tonto Dikeh comes on to explain how it happened. She also tries to clear the air about the fact that she may have been ‘drunk’ or ‘ high’ or both before hitting the stage.
“It was a big…well not a big fall and I managed it well. I fell because I had this very long dress, and this very high shoe and a slippery ground, and because I wasn’t supposed to dance at my first ‘coming out’. I had another outfit I could put on to really perform if I wanted to; it was my choice but I just came on and they played the song and I just had to dance and I slipped.
I made it fun really, I got up and danced, I didn’t want to disappoint anybody especially myself. When I went back stage, I was dancing my head off.
I couldn’t go back on stage because Iyanya was on stage and it was about closing. It was all his time. Nobody went back on stage after him. I wish I went back to dance again and not fall that time.
