Toke Makinwa, an on-air personality, has revealed how surprised she was when her marriage to personal trainer Maje Ayida ended.
Toke Makinwa married her ex-husband, Maje Ayida, in 2014 and divorced him in 2016.
Toke remarked in an appearance on the ‘Tea with Taymesan’ podcast that she was surprised by her divorce. Her 30th birthday was spent at her husband’s residence, she stated.
During her 30th birthday, she allegedly flaunted her accomplishments and marriage. Her marriage, however, ended a few months later, and she felt as if she had lost someone.
“I didn’t see my divorce coming, I remember cutting my 30th birthday cake in my husband’s house and I remember saying: ‘Yo b*tches, I am 30, I have a blossoming career, I am married, everything is going great right now. I remembered that night and my sister said ‘What do you mean? You are feeling yourself’. I told her, I got married before 30 and told her to put respect on my name. It affected every area of my life, it felt like death. It felt like losing someone”.
“My relationship with God, that is the only thing in the world that is keeping me balanced. I tell people I don’t know how you survive in this world, in this industry without God. I admire people who have different means of coping mechanisms and sometimes I am like ‘how does it work for you? But for me, I find out that I need to be rooted in something that is beyond all that is happening right now”.
