In an interview with LIB, Churchill spoke about unveiling a new
Anti-Domestic Violence programme. He also called out
Azuka of Media Room Hub who he says refused to publish the evidence he
gave to her because she has mutual friends with Tonto Dikeh. He also
went to say he’s done fighting to save the relationship.
Let’s talk about your new domestic violence initiative?
violence campaign that we are embarking on with some partners from
United Kingdom. We’ll be setting up a domestic violence center where
we’ll have a call center to link up cases of emergencies with hospitals
and police stations to give quick response and aids to victims of
domestic violence. The issue of domestic violence cuts across men and
women but most times the attention and focus is always on women, so this
initiative seeks to investigate and examine all cases of domestic
violence because we’ll be working with the police and relevant
relationship with Tonto Dikeh has been marred with accusations of
domestic violence, how do you intend to deal with that and your new
truth is, what you read in the news is different from reality. My
partner fights dirty and that’s what she’s put out there. Tonto will say
anything to sound believable and gain public sympathy and that’s what
she puts out there. It’s not real, I’ve
never laid my hands on her ever. I’m not a violent person and I’m not
temperamental, as a matter of fact I don;t take offence on anything at
all, that’s how God made me, people who are close to me knows this, when
I’m upset about something I simply avoid the offender and come to terms
with the fact that I don’t need such vibes around me.
are all fabricated, because my partner believes she’s a celebrity and
she can make people believe whatever she wants them to believe and using
her celebrity status to manipulate people to believe what she wants and
she’s in the business of make-belief but I’m a businessman, a man of
very few words too. I am a private person, but she prides herself on the
fact that she has the platform and fan base to bring anyone down and she also feels by the time she deals with me, I’ll come back begging.
met Tonto like 6-months before she took in, so where did the initial 4
months pregnancy come from or did it come after she gave birth to my
son? Because she traveled during her pregnancy and came back when King
was 4-month old and we had only stayed together for about 6-months after
that before all the issues started, she was still breast feeding. And
if indeed she had and lost a 4-month pregnancy, that will require for
her to do an evacuation, which hospital did it for her and evidence does
she have? It was all done to bring down my image and o destroy my
I have. The main thing that started this fight was between she and my
mum and it was very dirty. I bought a house for my mum in Lekki and she
came over from overseas so we can do a house warming party to launch it
and just 24-hours before the house warming party, my partner got angry
over a very flimsy issue and she just started breaking stuffs and
scattering the house and in the process while my mum was trying to calm
her down, she pushed my mum down as well. I had never seen that in my
life, I had to prostrate for my mum to apologize and that was how the
house warning party was cancelled because it was just 24-hours to the
party and Tonto had destroyed the house, breaking and damaging things.
and the following day I packed a few of my things and traveled to
Ghana. So I felt she was scared or confused on how to handle it, so she
went online and started the stunts by removing Churchill from her name.
And don’t forget, I said this issue happened on December 20th,
on the 22nd, she had one of her charity events where she kicked off a
road construction work at The Karamajiji Colony Abuja of people living
with disabilities on Friday, December 23, 2016 courtesy of the Big
Church Foundation pledge at the walk for love event. She
looked all good without any signs of beating or domestic violence which
shows it was a false allegation that i laid my hands on her.
fairness to her, while I was in Ghana, she sent a lot of text messages
to apologize but I guess I took too long because I was away for over two
weeks and then she just switched on me. Truth is I was actually In
shock. She did that just one day to my mum’s event, we had already
called people, invited pastors to bless the house and all only to cancel
it at the last minute because my partner destroyed the house.
she played a fast one when I saw the story on Stella’s blog with the
‘rumors had it stunt’ in January this year which began this whole
process. Truth is, I only traveled to Ghana for a charity event with my
staffs from the Abuja office just before my birthday,
people simply don’t like to loose a battle and because she’s a
celebrity, what happened was too heavy for her to bear. She felt if the
news got out, it’ll be bad for her so she switched it and once she
started to play the victim card, she had to continue it but it got to a
point when she left my house with my son and nanny before I came back to
Nigeria and she went on to grant an interview where she accused me of
domestic violence and it’s all lies, there’s nothing like a four month
pregnancy or any of the other lies. I was not even in the country when
she claimed she ran away from the house because of domestic violence. So
it was all planned and she took her time to pack everything because the
estate still has the CCTV footage of her moving out with a Sienna and a
that interview with Azuka, she showed images of an alleged domestic
violence, but she also put on a pendant (with the diamond crown
customized with my son’s name which I handed over to her on December 1,
2016. And in the same picture, she alleged loosing 4-months pregnancy
wearing the same cloth and the same pendant. It just doesn’t make sense
bearing in mind that the fracas happened at my mum’s home on December 20th
so the timelines just don’t match. she keeps complicating herself. Even
the pictire she showed during the interview was shown from her phone,
it wasn’t clear.
I wouldn’t have granted that interview, but the allegations were too
much and because of my brand. She called me a murderer, wife beater,
claimed I gave her STDs and even said my foundation is a scam and
everyone knows we don;t collect money from any one for the foundation,
we only use the 10% profit from Big Church Group to run it, just like
I had to grant the interview when the Azuka lady from MediaRooom Hub
came to me to debunk those allegations but unfortunately all the
evidences I gave to Azuka was never used. I heard Azuka also went to
Ghana to make findings from the embassy and police but she refused to
publish all the truth she found out because she has mutual friends with
Tonto Dikeh. God knows I wouldn’t have granted her the interview, but
they were the ones who interviewed my partner so I felt it was right I
also speak through the same medium with facts.
I’ve tried, but it’s just like seeing danger and you going for it. I
tried to get the relationship back so I could help her condition and
because of my kid but she doesn’t want peace.
me, my work life is different from my family life, I try to separate
it. When we started work on the movie, we weren’t really in god terms
even though I told her about the project. The truth is, instead of her
wasting this much energy in trying to bring her husband down, I think
she can put that energy to good use by going back to work and be
productive. If you don’t want the marriage again, you don’t need to be
dramatic about it by telling the world because they really don’t care
about you. I think she should go back to movies, reconcile with people
she’s offended in the industry and be humble.
the relationship with your son and your reaction to the fact that she
dressed as you to attend his father’s day event in school?
the main reason why I was trying to make it work, because she does
somethings that are not normal at all. And only someone close to her can
save her because she needs help. It’s been 7-months now and all she’s
been doing is to give me a bad name.
makes it look like I don’t care about my son. I help other kids, so why
will i ignore my son. Since my son got back to country when he was
4-months, I opened a Zenith bank account for him and his mum is he sole
signatory to that account. I put money in that account regularly. I send
money to her own account as well and she won’t even acknowledge the
money when she gets it but she goes on saying I don’t take care of my
invited her family over to try and make peace but she’s been deceiving
everyone and goes back online to pull her stunts and the truth is King’s
passport has been with me since he got back from the states.
has never stepped out of Africa since he got back at 4-month old. I
have been with his international passport, the only place he could have
gone is Ghana with hos Ecowas passport in her possession.
true story about that is this My first wife and marriage was a mistake,
I was rushed into it. We had only dated for 6-weeks before we did
something in her church. there was no registry, court. We didn’t even
go through the normal process of counselling and all that, like I said
we had only dated for 6-weeks. I only got to know later that the church
thing we did was fast tracked. We had separated for 2-years and 7-months
before I met Tonto. The priest form the church said the marriage was
wrong and should be annulled but she insisted on getting paper works
when Tonto started with her Mr X saga. and I don’t like wasting my life
or my time so I had to move on because she told me she has moved on too
and we didn’t have any child together. So in all honesty, we had gone
our separate ways before Tonto Dikeh came into the picture and Tonto
knew about it all and the process of getting the paperwork sorted from
my first marriage since she insisted and that is why I and Tonto didn’t
didn’t do any official yet till we got it sorted out.
we only went to meet the chiefs in Tonto’s place because she was
pregnant. We’ve not even done the proper traditional marriage. So I kind
of find the connection between my first wife and Tonto Dikeh very
strange because the last I know, they weren’t on talking terms and they
never met but then I also know Tonto can do anything to bring me down
even as the father of her child.
they are doing is planned. I see they’ve been liking each other’s posts
on Instagram and the way Tonto operates is this. If she wants to bring
you down, she’ll be friends with your enemy, she fights so hard.
the truth is, they both had issues with my mum, and I don’t understand
why my wife will not respect my mum. I can’t just get married to you in one year
and you are insulting my mum and calling her names, pushing her down.
They know I love my mum so much and will do anything for her. It’s not
like you are lacking or suffering as a wife but anytime I do something
for my mum, it becomes a problem. I know what that woman has been
through, she goes on many days dry fasting for my sake so you don’t
expect me to allow her to be disrespected.
my son, I don’t want him to grow up in that kind of environment and I
also didn’t want to do anything to hurt Tonto because she’s the mother
of my child. In real life, I’m easy going, I’m not a trouble maker but
the way she paints me as a trouble maker, I should have gone to her
house and forcefully take my son or take her to court and start dragging
a case, but I’ve not done none of that, I’m letting her take her time
because he’s my son and no one can take that away.
is the kind of person that I can go to her house to see my son and just
knocking at her door, she’ll scream domestic violence again, she knows
how to manipulate things, so you have to be very careful with that kind
it was and I knew it when I was going into it. I knew I was going into
danger, but I was ready to go into it to save her, but right now I do
not care anymore, I’m done, I can’ deal with it anymore. I don’t want
the relationship anymore. She says I borrowed money from her and I’m
like how? where is the evidence? At least I gave her 10 million naira
last Christmas and I have proof of payment, so if she borrowed me money,
she should prove it.
these kind of negativity comes from someone who said she fasted 21 days
before she met me, someone who said I brought her closer to God, so
where is God in this situation and the way she wants my downfall?
