Tonto Wigo Charity Dikeh better known as Tonto Dikeh, is a Nigerian actress, singer, and philanthropist.

Tonto Dikeh rose to fame following her role in the then controversial movie "Dirty Secret" which generated controversy amongst Nigerians because the movie contained numerous adult scenes which at then was quite alien in the Nigerian movie industry.

While some criticised her role for being untraditional and un-African, others said that Dikeh was merely being professional.
