Popular Nigerian media personality cum Nollywood actress, Toke Makinwa, has opened up on how she was able to cope after her ex husband, Maje Ayida, impregnated his ex-girlfriend.
Speaking during ‘Toke Moment’, an episode of her YouTube vlog series, she narrated how devastated she was after learning that the pregnancy was nine (9) months old.
Recall that in 2015, Toke Makinwa seperated from her estranged husband, Mr. Ayida, but the marriage was officially divorced in 2017.
Speaking on her ordeal, Toke revealed that her job was her only consolation as she insisted on going to work despite being emotionally downcast.
She further revealed that her boss at the time, persuaded her to take a break but she refused as she learned how to avoid mixing work with emotions.
Makinwa said, “I think that [my job] was the only thing that I was sure of in my life. Every other thing that was familiar has failed. The world that I had built had crumbled. And the only thing that I was sure of, was my job.
“I remember walking into the [radio] studio, and like 7am the World News goes on. And there is a call from the owner of the radio station, and he is like, ‘everyone is talking about you, I don’t want to get into it but people are thinking you would literally fall apart. I think you need to go home.
“I have learned to leave my feelings at the door and then pick them up when I am on my way home. So, once I walk into the studio, it’s not about me.
“It’s about the millions of people who are trying to make their ways to work; they are the ones who are tuning in expecting to get entertained, informed, and on top of what is going in the world.”
