When asked by Momodu if she has forgiven her ex-husband, Churchill Olakunle; she said “Oh yes, especially him. I forgive him and wish him the best, for my son’s sake. I do. Why not?”

Quoting Tonto from the interview:

“A man I love and respect always, talked to me about forgiveness and I have come to realize that forgiveness is not about the next person…” 

“I know that forgiveness is not about the next person but the explanation I got recently really wowed me. It says I have forgiven you not because you have to be forgiven, I have forgiven you because I do not want to put myself in a place of stagnation when it comes to growth.”

“I do not want to put myself in a place of stagnation when it comes to love, I do not want to put myself in a place of warship, progressing, my career.”

“Forgiveness is a whole lot and I only just realized that the bible says that if we do not forgive, God cannot forgive us. All these things are in the bible but it never really made an impact on me until someone really explained it.”

Taking to her Instagram page Tonto also added that she forgives everyone who tried to hurt her knowingly or unknowingly for the sake of her personal growth.

She also made everyone know that her forgiveness doesn’t make her stupid and not all forgiveness needs reconnection.
