To say that Toke Makinwa has had a rough past few days is an understatement. News has broken that her husband, and partner of neon years, Maje Ayida has gotten his side chick (of 8 years) pregnant. Don’t care what kind of thick skin you have that’ll certainly shake you up.
However, this morning Toke Makinwa has a message for all those going through a rough time in their relationship:
‘The amount of emails I have received from women across the world going thru difficult situations is heartbreaking. (Thank you all for sharing). In a world where the popular belief out there is that women hate each other, women can’t stand each other, etc. I have gotten emails/calls from women sharing their own personal pain and that is courageous. I can’t reply everyone, (even though i honestly wish i could.) It is Funny how God uses even the most unbelievable things to bless you.
I have been given a voice, a platform, (i don’t even know how it’s all happened) but I woke up one day and I found God and with that came purpose. It’s never about you, as hard as it seems, sometimes you go thru things not for you but for the people around you who need direction, a word of prayer or more. May God heal every broken heart out there, may his light give you the courage to begin to love yourself. It is tough being a woman, the preasure is real. You don’t have to be a victim, you can rise above it all. Do not let society tell you otherwise. Be Bold, Be Strong. Trust God’s purpose for your life and keep shinning. *And Yes, to all the people asking, there is a Vlog this week *
Great stuff Toke! Encourage others, and indirectly encourage yourself 🙂
