Tonto Dikeh, a prominent Nigerian actress, has publicly expressed her admiration for the Muslim faith, stating that her biggest prayer is to understand the religion better.

On her Instagram page, she shared her appreciation for the “call to prayer” she hears daily from a nearby mosque, describing it as “the best sound, sound of love, dedication and God’s beauty”.

Dikeh has been waking up to the sound of the call to prayer for four years, and she finds it deeply touching. “I wake up to the best sound every day for the past four years. It’s the sound of love and dedication, the sound of God’s beauty and love,” she wrote.

The actress also inquired about ways to donate to a mosque beyond financial contributions. “If I wanted to donate to a Mosque what do I give aside money? God bless every Muslim, I hear your prayers. May Allah answer you.”

Tonto Dikeh commended Muslims for their “dedication and intentionality” towards their faith, adding that “God/Allah is love. I’m deeply touched. My biggest prayer is to understand the Muslim faith. Their dedication and intentionality is worthy of emulation.”

Aside from her acting career, Tonto Dikeh has also ventured into politics. In 2020, she announced her plans to run for office, and in 2023, she contested for the Rivers deputy governor seat under the African Democratic Congress (ADC).

Although she lost the election, she later defected to the All Progressive Congress (APC) in October last year. Her admiration for the Muslim faith and her political endeavors showcase her diverse interests and pursuits.
