Actress Tonto Dike and Mercy Aigbe have taken to their social media to celebrate themselves for playing the dual role of father and mother to their children.
The actresses did this on the occasion of this year’s father’s day stating that playing the dual roles is not easy and so, they should be appreciated for the effort.
Tonto Dike, in her post further advised women that forgiveness does not require connection and so should create space if the father decides to play a role in the life of the child.
“Dear life I guess you gave this job to me to mock me but Hey, Am kicking your ass and Acing all your blows.
Happy Father’s Day to ME..
Happy Father’s Day to All the Fathers out there, We do not take your Love, Strength, Hussle and Selflessness for granted
You are celebrated today and Always
and To those females who represent the role of a father in their child/Children I say Well done..
We should learn to do this JOB without HATE in our heart, We should learn to FORGIVE so we too can be blessed..
FORGIVENESS DOESNT REQUIRE RECONNECTION..
FOR THE SAKE OF YOUR CHILD/CHILDREN IF THE FATHER DECIDES TO START PAYING CHILD SUPPORT AND CONTRIBUTING EMOTIONALLY, DO NOT STOP THEM..
Where you get NONE DO THIS JOB(FATHERHOOD) WITH LOVE, JOY, HAPPINESS AND WITHOUT A TRACE OF BITTERNESS .
Do not sell hatred to your kids but teach them the TRUTH
Love them unconditionally
THEN WATCH WHAT GOD WILL BRING YOUR WAY..
HAPPY AMAZING FATHERS DAY殺
#HON. Minister of Happiness殺”

“Happy Father’s Day to me and all the responsible fathers out there! 2 Kids ( 1 international student) …. changing naira to dollars with this dollar rate! Abeg it’s not easy! but God has been Gracious!
Please no one should come and tell me how I shouldn’t take the shine off Fathers oh! (Fatherhood is beyond just impregnating a woman, if you are a man and do not perform your responsibilities towards your kids, Biko you ain’t fit to be called a Father and that’s on Period!!!!)… So, Since I am playing the dual role in my children’s lives, allow me celebrate myself everyday! Cos it’s not easy!
May the lord grant us long lives, in good health to enjoy the fruit of our labour

Recall that Tonto Dike was married to businessman Olakunle Churchill whom she accused of ‘marrying’ as she gave him the money which he paid for her bride price. Both ended their marriage in a very bitter way.
Mercy Aigbe, on the other hand, was married to businessman Lanre Gentry who domestically and physically abused her until she called off the marriage. Efforts by her estranged husband to get her back proved abortive.
