Tonto Dike's Hilarious Yoruba Cake And 5 Top Bakers In Lagos
Congratulations Yorubaland, you're the only tribe with cake as your local food! Tonto never disappoints.
Tonto Dikeh attended the Nigerian Independence day celebration at her son's school. And she presented a "dish" that has amused Instagram users. In preparation for the Independence Day celebration, many schools asked their pupils to dress according to the different tribes in Nigeria. In some schools, pupils were also asked to bring local food from different tribes. Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh’s son, King was asked to bring Yoruba food. But the actress could not come up with anything. She then contacted a baker to make a Yoruba cake.
The actress tagged the cake "Yoruba cake" because her son represented the Yoruba tribe.
