Nigerian media personality, Toke Makinwa, has opened up on how she felt when she discovered that her estranged husband, Maje Ayida, had impregnated his former girlfriend.
The media personality, who divorced Maje Ayida in 2016 on charges of adultery, claimed she found out her husband’s ex-girlfriend was pregnant for him when the pregnancy was nine months old.
Toke Makinwa disclosed this in the latest episode of her YouTube vlog series, Toke Moments.
According to her, despite being emotionally tortured by the experience, she found refuge in her work. She mentioned how she immersed herself in work in order to forget about her problems.
“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 I was sure of was my job,” she said.
“I remember walking into the [radio] studio, and like 7 a.m., 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,” Toke recounted.
“I could cope with work because I learned earlier to leave my feelings at the door and then pick them up when I’m on my way home. So, once you walk into the studio, it’s not about you. It’s about the millions of people who are trying to make their ways work; they are the ones who are tuning in expecting to get entertained, informed, and on top of what is going in the world.”
