Founder of Nigeria Goodwill Ambassador Awards and Project consultant of Tonto Dikeh’s Foundation, Ambassador Chris Odey has reacted to developments surrounding his endorsement of Attention Magazine, endorsement that raised several mixed reactions across Nigeria, especially with its spotlight on loyalty, betrayal and marital crisis about Actress Tonto Dikeh and her ex-husband, Churchill Olakunle, who is adorned in the cover page of the Impact Impression edition of Attention Magazine.
Amb. Chris in a post yesterday via his Instagram page has defined his position and undoubtedly stand with Actress Tonto Dikeh. He noted that himself and the Actress were more than just friends and that he had nothing really serious for or against her Ex-husband Churchill Olakunle.
Amb. Chris stressed that his endorsement of Attention Magazine was done innocently and in view of his extensive relationship with the publisher. In his post he maintained that he is committed to his support for Actress Tonto Dikeh and her charity projects but that he would continue to keep a cordial relationship with everyone, because he isn’t sure what tomorrow will bring.
However, the publisher of Attention Magazine, Mr Nwankwo during a press briefing yesterday told newsmen that the endorsement of Attention Magazine by Amb. Chris Odey does not in any way stymie his relationship and partnership with Actress Tonto Dikeh nor does it create an potential interest of commitments with her ex-husband who is been adorned on the front cover of the Magazine.
Infact, according to the publisher, it was the brand that was endorsed and not the front cover personality. Amb. Chris has noted his disappointment in the misunderstood intentions of his endorsement of Attention Magazine.
