As a victim of betrayal, Nollywood actress and media personality, Toke Makinwa, was once an unhappy woman. Her source of joy became her source of pain.
She says she was crushed.
Her reason for this: Her estranged husband, Maje Ayida, impregnated his ex-girlfriend and sadly, she learnt about it when the pregnancy was nine months.
According to her, the pain was unbearable. But solace was not far away.
Speaking on the latest episode of her YouTube vlog series, Toke Moments, she said her job came to her rescue.
“I think that my job was the only thing that I was sure of in my life. Every other thing that was familiar has failed. The world that I had built had crumbled. And the only thing that I was sure of, was my job.
“I remember walking into the [radio] studio, and like 7 am the World News goes on. And there is a call from the owner of the radio station, and he is like, ‘everyone is talking about you, I don’t want to get into it but people are thinking you would literally fall apart. I think you need to go home,” Makinwa said.
Makinwa said her secret was simple: Leaving her feelings at the door of the studio and picking it on her way home.
To her, finding peace after betrayal, infidelity, was a long journey.
