Ngunan Agur: Re: Open Letter to Tonto Dikeh

Dear Onyeka Nwelue,

I do not know Tonto.
I do not know you either. But you are a sorry excuse of a man.

I mean, what man pays attention to what a woman says to the extent that he writes an open letter to insult her?

What man will compare a Nigerian who is at least trying her hand at something other than acting with a woman who has all the equipment at hand to assist her?

Is it not in this same England that a young singer drugged herself to death? Amy Winehouse to be precise.

Surely there are people of your age who are far more successful than you ever may be- this is not a curse, but a reality of life.

Which purposeful Igbo man writes with no finesse and insults a young lady he personally does not know?

Was it your body she tattooed? Or your sister’s? Or your mother’s?
Did she ask for your hand in marriage?

Where is the right of opinion? Yet if a soldier smacks your cheek you complain of being violated.

Your open letter is such a glaring admission of joblessness.

You who judges a person and insults what her opinions are, gives your own opinion…which is amazingly filled with too much nonsense, I’m afraid and which you suppose we must applaud.

You may not stand a Judge of Tonto. Nobody can, Nobody is God.

So leave the girl to lead her life.

And lead your own life.

One word for you Onyeka : when your tongue or finger in your case can not speak or write kindness, keep silent, or do not write at all.

Yours sincerely,
Ngunan Agur
