“How I was almost jailed in Dubai” – Tonto Dikeh shares what transpired in Dubai last year

Nigerian actress and businesswoman, Tonto Dikeh has finally opened up why she was deported from Dubai last year, after an altercation with security guards.

It should be recalled that sometime last year, news made the rounds that the actress was deported for dealing with drugs et al but she dismissed the reports as false.

The mother of one, in a new development as regards the issue, has now cleared the air, saying she was not involved in any kind of drugs as people were made to believe and that she got into a fight with the guard because he called her “prostitute’’ in Arabic.

According to her, the guard saw her not properly dressed so he insulted her judging by her appearance and that caused the misunderstanding.


She made this known in a live Instagram interview with top Nigerian journalist/Publisher, Chief Dele Momodu. The veteran publisher asked about what realy went down in Dubai, and this is what she has to say;

”Far from it. That incident in Dubai was not drugs because if it was I would be in jail. It had nothing to do with drugs or alcohol even.

“On that day, I was insulted by one of the guards. He said something very derogatory to me in Arabic, I think Lebanon. It’s called Sharamuta which means prostitute, it means a call girl and I was not so dressed.

“But it was a show, so I had like a very amazing bra inside and this blazer on top. To them, it is Haram when you are not dressed properly. So that is where all of the altercation started. That was the only problem, any other information is just false,

“I really don’t want to go into so much detail about Dubai because I have a home there now and I want to be able to enter freely after all of this and that is why I never really talked about it“
