“If he makes you cry, Honey make him pay big time!!”
That is a boss lady motto right there. Toke Makinwa, Nigeria radio personality, TV host , Vlogger and now author of her biopic “On Becoming” is a pro at handling scandals and turning pain into fortune.(Ching !Ching!)
Her 18 month marriage to on and off again boyfriend of dog years Maje Ayida, crashed in front of the public eye when he got Anita Solomon (his 8year on again off again Lebanese-Calabar girlfriend) pregnant. The media went gaga when the news broke and Toke was on every blog , paper, radio , social media ,TV …you name it!
Imagine being a relationship Vlogger and have such a disgraceful thing happen to you! To the public dismay , she didn’t offer a word on the issue and went about her daily life like nothing happened. She finally divorced Maje early this year and here is the big Catch…
On her birthday this November, she launched an entire merchandise inspired by this scandal!! How smart is that ? She put her own side of the story in a biopic “On Becoming” that is set to be launched this Sunday November 27th 2016 in Nigeria (which of course will sell countless copies for sure)
The book gives details of her relationship with MAje. The downs and more downs as well as jaw dropping juice on the unending love triangle with Anita who now has a son for Maje.
The merchandise also includes Tshirts, plain caps and so much more that aims at getting the “on becoming” message across and celebrating women who have overcome/grown into who they are based on what they went through.
This is PR and self growth at its best!! Ladies and gentlemen in the public eye, please take notes. This is how you handle a scandal and get paid for your pain. Where better to cry than in a Lamborghini with loubies on your feet right? Honey, in fact when you make as much money as Toke is about to from a scandal like this, the idiot who hurt you won’t be worth a tear! (The money go just deh sweet you deh go o …Lol! ) Wanna bet? Congrats Toke! History will forever remember you as the woman who rose about it all better, stronger and richer!💪🏾👌🏾🙌🏾👸🏾💁🏾 #Inspire #Grow #Love #Become
