Speaking further Tochi Wigwe said her father was a feminist, a champion of equality while stating that distance is not a barrier for his father as he always checks up on her no matter the distance noting that he was a divine blessing in her life.

According to Tochi, her late dad Wigwe used to describe her and her mother as the two most beautiful people in the world stressing that he gave her the name “Pretty.”
