CELEBRITY GIST — Popular Nigerian On-Air Personality, Toke Makinwa, is already considering giving marriage a second chance after her first marriage with ex-husband Maje Amaju Ayida crashed due to infidelity and irreconcilable differences.
Toke’s 18-month-old marriage to ex-hubby Maje Amaju Ayida hit the rocks when her husband impregnated his longtime girlfriend, Anita Solomon.
The 31-year-old On-Air Personality (OAP) recently officially divorced her husband over adultery, cruelty and irreconcilable differences.
In a chat with Encomium, the popular OAP, who recently revealed shocking experiences she had before her divorce, said she has not given up on marriage.
When asked if she could ever give marriage another shot, she said:
“It was a journey, we all go through different stages, we learn from them.”
“Marriage is a beautiful thing. Next time we would be talking, I might be a married woman, who knows. Life is a journey. You are allowed to grow, it is a journey of growth, and be open, do what you are supposed to do when you are supposed to do it, so that you can learn from your mistakes, become who you are supposed to be.”
On her perception about marriage, she said:
“It is a beautiful institution. I am not coming from a bitter place, you would accept what happened.”
“For me, it might be a marriage, for the next person, it might be a sick child. The most important thing is what you do with what you learnt from the situation.
“You are allowed to grow, it is a journey of growth, and be open, do what you are supposed to do when you are supposed to do it, so that you can learn from your mistakes, become who you are supposed to be.”
The OAP, popularly known for her online vlog was heavily criticized recently after she literally advised youths in their 20’s to live their life to the fullest.
She had said: “Get a tattoo, kiss a stranger, have a one-night stand, party hard.”
Toke Makinwa recently debuted her book titled “On Becoming…“, which many say its an attempt to tell her own side of the messy story surrounding her failed marriage.
