Toke Makinwa who filed for a divorce from her ex-husband, Maje Ayida in 2016 on grounds of committing adultery disclosed that she only got to know the ex-girlfriend of her husband was already in its ninth month.
Toke Makinwa made this disclosure during an interview in the latest episode of her YouTube vlog series, Toke Moments.
She disclosed that despite being tortured emotionally by the incident, the only solace she found was her work. Toke mentioned how she soaked her head in her work after the incident in order to forget her problems.
“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 I was sure of was my job.
“I remember walking into the [radio] studio, and like 7 a.m., 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.”
She said she could cope with work because she learned earlier “to leave her feelings at the door and then pick them up when you are on your way home. So, once you walk into the studio, it’s not about you. It’s about the millions of people who are trying to make their ways work; they are the ones who are tuning in expecting to get entertained, informed, and on top of what is going in the world.” she said.
“The world that I had built had crumbled…”
