Nollywood actress Tonto Dikeh alias Poko is the trending topic on the web at the moment. Reason, she just dropped two new singles and all hell has broken lose.
The songs are entitled “Hi” and “Itz Ova” which features dancehall act, Snypa.
We do not have any opinion on the songs yet but what we have gathered, it seems they are basically below current musical standards and all Nigerians have either through their twitter, facebook pages, Blackberry Statuses and so on, had their say.
Here is a cross section of what we saw people tweet at Tonto’s twitter handle, @Tontolet, some of which she, displaying a very expansive sense of humour, retweeted herself:

Tontoh had earlier announced the release of her songs and even that announcement had received its own disproportionate share of insults and invectives.
Her first foray into music was her feature on singer cum producer, Kas’, Iyawo Wind, last year. She is signed on to Kas’ Kas Beats Entertainment.
Tonto who is known for giving back to fans, gave out about 33 pieces of recharge cards to fans on twitter in October 2011. She also offered the sum of N1m to anyone who could tell the meaning of her nickname 'Poko'.
Earlier in March, the Petro-Chemical graduate of Rivers State University of Science and Technology (RSUTH) treated two fans to a dinner at Four Point by Sheraton Hotel, Lagos and donated N1m to Funmi Lawal who was diagnosed with malignant sacorma.
