Media personality Toke Makinwa, while advising some people on social media especially those living in the fear of being judged or misunderstood said she was when her marriage broke up she was judged by people who didn’t even have their shit together, Toke Makinwa’s marriage Maje Ayida was dissolved in December, last year.
In my own words, invest in your glow up 🥂🥂💫For anyone out there living in the fear of being judged or misunderstood, listen – “ Greatness is first despised before being celebrated”. Do you, do you over and over again and remember it’s really not that serious. I remember when my marriage broke up, I was judged by people who didn’t even have their shit together, years after I’ve seen some of those people go thru their own battles, some even worse than I did and it taught me to be kind, to have compassion to face my front cos nobody has it easy. Everyone you meet is fighting a battle that you know nothing about, let God alone be the judge of all of us cos it’ll be a damn shame if you perfect Nancy don’t make heaven because you played judge here on earth. #wednesdaymotivation #judgenot #liveforyourself
In her Instagram post, She referred to her marriage to Maje Ayida that has been dissolved in court.
Makinwa is the co-host of the ‘Morning Drive’ on Rhythm 93.7FM, a vlogger and an author.
She had on March 9, 2016, asked the court to dissolve the marriage on the grounds that the husband committed adultery. Justice Morenike Obadina, while delivering judgment held that Ayida filed an answer to the petition but did not give oral evidence in support of it.
She said the position of the law was settled as pleadings did not amount to evidence.
Makinwa had told the court that her husband committed adultery with his mistress, Anita Solomon, adding that the relationship produced a child.
She said since their marriage was contracted, the husband had “behaved in a way she could not reasonably be expected to continue to bear”.
She also said the husband was cruel towards her, adding that their differences became irreconcilable.
In her testimony, she said that after their marriage was contracted in 2014, cohabitation with her husband ceased on Nov. 8, 2015, without any child from the marriage.
She also told the court of an instance where her husband threatened separation and even drafted a separation agreement because she discovered that he bought a ticket for his mistress to travel to London.
