There had been a lot of speculations over the last couple of weeks over Toke Makinwa, and her long term relationship with Maje Ayida. Not too long ago she had discussed plans to get married, and a few weeks later there was word that they had broken up.
Toke in an interview with Punch Newspaper confirmed that she is no longer with her boyfriend/fiance of 12 years. It’s pretty sad it’s come to this as the end of a 12 year relationship, but it’s never too late to stop going the wrong way.
Here is a excerpt of the 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.
