Nigerian media personality and actress, Toke Makinwa, has opened up about how she coped with the situation of her estranged husband, Maje Ayida, impregnating his ex-girlfriend. In the latest episode of her YouTube vlog series, ‘Toke Moments,’ she revealed that she was devastated when she learned about the pregnancy, especially since it was already nine months along. The couple had separated in 2015, and their marriage was officially dissolved in court in 2017.
Toke shared that despite her emotional distress, her job was a source of solace for her. She insisted on going to work and not letting her personal life affect her professional responsibilities. Her boss had even advised her to take time off, but she chose to continue working because she had learned to separate her emotions from her work.
She recalled an incident where the owner of the radio station she worked at called her, informing her that people were talking about her and expressing concerns that she might fall apart. However, Toke was determined to remain focused on her job and not let her personal struggles overshadow her work.
