Actress, Tonto Dikeh, has announced her retirement from the Nollywood movie industry.

She made this disclosure in an interview. According to her, her passion for acting is no longer as strong as when she made her debut.

The Rivers State Deputy Governor candidate said she wouldn’t be returning to acting even if her party, African Democratic Congress (ADC), does not win the coming election.

She said she has acted in two movies in the last decade.

The actress also gave accolades to her colleagues who are on the same path. She mentioned Banky W and Funke Akindele.

“I don’t like movies like that again and it’s been a long time since I acted on screen, you know,” the interview read in part.

“I’ve acted in about two films in 10 years. I appreciate that my path started from Nollywood. It is something that I respect, but it’s not something that has been in my life.

“So even after the election, it’s not something I’ll return to, but I’ll love to contribute to the industry when I get into power.

“It is not easy for Funke and Banky W at their level to put themselves out there to effect change because criticisms and so many things are involved.

“I believe in Funke, I believe in Banky. With them, I can hold onto something and say I believe that they have a vision for the people.”
