Top media personality and former radio host, Toke Makinwa has recounted moments she believed some negative reports about Veteran Actress, Genevieve Nnaji sleeping around to keep up with her Celebrity lifestyle.
Toke, in a new juicy episode of “Toke Moments“, sat down with Actress Lilian Afegbai, to discuss a lot of things from dating in Lagos to the pressures of social media and people trying to grow up fast.
The TV Host also opened up about how before she became successful, used to be one of those people who believe that certain entertainers, especially Top female celebrities like Genevieve Nnaji, only got to their level of success from sleeping with men.
She shared her experience and explained how ultimately her mindset changed about Genevieve Nnaji and others with huge assets, after she became successful.
Toke Makinwa narrates to Lilian Afegbai:
“I remember doing Youtube videos back in the day saying “even if you dash me a Birkin, I will never own one”.
I said those things, I did, because to be quite honest, I was probably talking from a place of lack. I remember before things started happening for me, you will hear things like
“Ah, Genevieve has this or has that estate” or all that and somebody in the room will be like
“Abeg no pressure yourself! No be this person she dey date, no be that person buy am for am?” and you will probably start thinking they’re actually doing that. Until you start earning money and start being smart with your money, and things start happening for you. And then you sit back and realize, perhaps that person wasn’t even doing all of those things.
So I think I too also had to go through that phase because me too I used to be part of those people that whenever I sit down, I will be like “yimu, it’s not possible, there must be a man behind that success” until I actually realized that, you know what? People don’t even understand that I am a walking billboard. I make money in my sleep.”
