She also said she wants to use her foundation to help in the rehabilitation of drug addicts so that they can live a drug-free life.

“I recently went into drug rehabilitation because it’s something that has set me back a lot in life and I’ve not really talked about it in public. So, given the fact that I am who I am today and I’m clean, I want to take the ‘Say No To Drugs’ back to the streets through the Tonto Dike Foundation,” she said.
