Nigerian media personality, Toke Makinwa, has revealed that she was devastated after discovering her estranged husband, Maje Ayida, impregnated his ex-girlfriend.
Toke, who filed for divorce in March 2016 on the grounds that her husband committed adultery, said she learned about the pregnancy when it was already in its ninth month.
She made this revelation on the latest episode of her YouTube vlog series, Toke Moments.
According to her, despite the emotional turmoil she was experiencing at the time, she found solace in her work and insisted on going to work despite being emotionally downcast.
“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.
