A while ago, Tonto Dikeh suffered backlash after she commented on a prayer post by Ghanaian actor and evangelist, Majid Michel.

Tonto Dikeh ‘typed in tongues’ on the comment section and this brought her massive heat as people could not understand how anyone can type in tongues.

She was slammed for “abusing the Holy Spirit” and also being “hypocritical”, as social media influencer Tunde Ednut also wrote:

“So people now type in tongues… Na wa o! #ThisIsNigeria”

Reacting to this, Tonto Dikeh who claimed she is a radical for Jesus, said if people can sing the ‘skrrrr pa’ from the Man’s not hot single, she can also speak and type in tongues.
