Media personality and Vlogger, Toke Makinwa has confirmed rumours spreading over social media about her 12-year relationship with fiance, Maje Ayida.
Speaking to The Punch newspapers in an exclusive interview, Makinwa gave the scoop on her background and why her much publicised relationship crashed.
Read excerpts from her interview:
I am not under any pressure to get married. It’s the society that puts pressure on women not minding that divorce rates are high. I was once in a long term relationship with Maje Ayida and it has come to an end. I think it’s unfair for me to speak about our relationship because he is not here to defend himself. He is an amazing guy but it was not meant to be. It’s strange being single again but I am taking it one step after the other. One of the mistakes I made in my last relationship is that we dated for a long time. They were amazing years but they were also 12 long years. When you are faithful to someone, know what you can tolerate. My Mr Right has to be God-fearing, who would not do certain things because he is God-fearing. He has to understand what I do and must not be selfish in any way.
Makinwa also confirmed she gets paid to attend events.
I get paid to attend parties
I enjoy going out and there are some appearances that I would be paid for if my brand aligns with what they are pushing for. I have people who come to me saying they want me to appear at their weddings or birthdays and ask how much I would bill them. It’s not every event that I get paid to attend. It’s called an appearance fee.
