Toke’s marriage and its subsequent collapse gathered considerable media attention and speculation after her husband left her for a mistress who had a child for him.
Nigerian On Air Personality, Toke Makinwa has finally released her highly anticipated book titled ‘On Becoming’. She released a short video two weeks ago where she spoke on her faith and the end of her marriage to Maje Ayida.
Here is an excerpt from the book
I got on my knees in front of him, my voice calm as I can make it. “Maje, you can’t keep lying. What is going on?
He walks away, leaving me there with my heart in my hands. I see him pacing, like he is having a private conversation. Then all of a sudden, he walks back to the living room, looks straight into my eyes and says, ‘She’s pregnant’.
I fall to the ground. My head….
‘What’s she having?’
‘A boy,’ he says.
‘How long have you known?
‘I’ve always known…. It was what I thought I wanted,’ he says.
