Court Bars Actress Tonto Dikeh From Featuring Her Son, Andre On Her "King Tonto" Reality Show


A Lagos state magistrate court has reportedly ordered controversial Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh and Linda Ikeji TV not to air King Tonto Reality TV Show until the case is settled in court.

According to report, the court banned them from airing, showing, disseminating or broadcasting, either through television, blogs or the Internet the person, name, face, image, likeness or picture of King Andre Omodayo Igo Churchill in the King Tonto Reality TV Show produced by Linda Ikeji Media pending the hearing of the originating motion in the suit and injunction was given on the 31st of January.

This is coming after Andre's father, Olakunle Churchill, went to court to protect his son from undue indecent exposure and exploitation by the mother for personal gain and fame, after he approached the court to seek for an injunction that will put a stop to the respondent from featuring King Andrea in the programme in any capacity as he is regarded a minor not fit to make decision for himself.



Justice P. A Adekomaiya of Lagos Magistrate Court has now ordered the issuance of the verdict to the parties involved as Linda Ikeji Media copy was pasted at the gate of her studio. The decision of the court is a legal victory for the applicant King Andrea filed on behalf of his father to save him of any embarrassment in the near future.

In the lawsuit filed at at the family court of the Lagos State Magistrate court, over the Reality TV Show being produced by Linda Ikeji Media Limited and featuring their son King Andre, Mr. Olakunle Churchill argued that he is only protecting his son’s rights as captured under the Child Rights Law of Lagos State, while adding that Tonto Dikeh who will be exposing the life and times of their son at a period when he cannot make a decision for himself, is only doing that for financial gain and he wouldn’t allow that to happen.
