Here are some of the stories from yesterday and others that unraveled while you slept – and are still buzzing today.
Toke Makinwa celebrates 32nd birthday with teaser for new project “On Becoming”
Popular OAP, Toke Makinwa is 32 and amidst the excitement and thousands of birthday wishes that rolled in yesterday, she unveiled a new project she claims to have been working in the last one year.
The trailer for the project saw Toke in a look partly Egyptian-goddess inspired with a garland placed on her head and a stance that suggests surrender with the blank expression on her face. The narrative of the clip was read by her and it began with the words “Who am I”? It later faded into voices of other people talking about her life (must have been clips from radio programmes) at the time of her divorce from former husband, Maje Ayida.
Toke strips herself of her make-up and wig and ends with the words “I am becoming”.
The video was shot by Kemi Adetiba. Watch the full trailer here:
