To every hardened critic and those that think she will be a flash in the pan, Tonto Dikeh has a message for you all: There is no stopping her. In an exclusive interview with Stella Dimok-Korkus, Tonto speaks extensively about her music career and how she plans to build on from her first two singles:

Q: What prompted you into singing?
A: I love music and I wanted to do my own thing, to contribute my own music.

Q:You got monstrous negative response to both singles. How did feel with all the attacks?
A: I listened to my songs over and over again and I told myself I did well. In all, I see only the positivity in it, I made History. People’s opinion of how my music was has further strengthened my belief that dreams die when you let the next man’s opinion get to you and I am using now to pass a message to everyone out there, if you can just do it. Don’t let anyone’s opinion kill whatever dream you have or try to stop you from taking the next step.

Q:You tweeted that you were not giving up. Does that mean you will become actively involved in music?
A:I love my acting career and I don’t see myself jumping into full time music. I am however shooting the musical video of my songs, I will not let the hating stop me.

Q: You released your song on Wednesday October 17, 2012 and two days later despite the negativity your song had hit 5.2 million download on the internet. How do you feel?
A:The most unanticipated and hated song became the most talked about, most controversial, most downloaded and of course the most listened song. I feel great Stella, no regrets!

Q:We look forward to the musical videos. Till then I am sure comedians will soon add
your song jokes to their shows.
A: Hopefully. Thank you and here’s a loud shout out and thank you to everyone who stood up for me.
