Popular Nollywood Nigerian actress, Tonto Charity Dikeh, popularly known as King Tontolet, has admonished parents to accept their daughters back wholeheartedly from a failed marriage.
The singer, songwriter and humanitarian, who is a divorcee and a mother of one, begged parents to be bold enough to accept any of their daughters, from a failed marriage, instead of advising or forcing her to endure.
Most African parents, feel it is a shame to accept a daughter back home, after her marriage crash, due to perceived traditional and religious beliefs.
According to Tonto, she said accepting a lady, who is divorced and alive, is way better than putting pressure on her, to stay in an abusive marriage with her estranged husband, that may abuse her, till it leads to the daughter’s death.
She concluded by saying that, it is better for the parents to welcome a daughter who is divorced, back home, than to receive the dead body of their daughter.
Taking to her verified Instagram account, king Tonto wrote;
Dear parents, please welcome your daughter home from a failed marriage, a divorced daughter is better that a dead daughter.

Last week, I found the courage to escape an abusive relationship. With the clothes on our backs, I ran through the airport terminal with my 2 month old daughter strapped to my chest. Caught the last flight back home to my family, whom I had been forced not to see or speak with
This is generational. Painful. And embarrassing. I survived this week with only 2 pairs of panties and prayer.
Today, we are moving into an apartment with the last of my money. I’m grateful but also mourning. All our things are in Texas. All my books. All her clothes and items. But I am remembering as I turn the key that our lives are what matters most.
I never do this. But we could use prayers. Encouragement. And any other blessings to bring about fullness as we start our new lives together in safety:
