Nigerian media personality, Toke Makinwa, who took to Twitter to share an ‘update’ of her friend getting married, was told she might be intimidating prospective husband with being rich and famous.
Twitter user @Fortune_decent, who reacted to tweet of Toke Makinwa’s friend getting married, wrote;
Aunty Toke men might be scared approaching you because ur pretty wealthy and famous they might feel u would not submit when u become a wife u know how African men are insecurity problems
However debunking claims of intimidating her prospective husband, Toke Makinwa wrote;
We don’t need weak men. A strong woman should not intimidate you, a powerful woman should excite you, push you out of your comfort zone and make you want to be more
A strong woman should make you proud of her, knowing that if anything happens she has all it takes to get down and fix shit. If she intimidates you, you are weak and simply short sighted
Recall that the tempestuous marriage of media personality, Toke Makinwa, to her ex-husband, Maje Ayida, was dissolved by an Igbosere High Court in Lagos, in 2017.
Toke had filed for divorce in March 2016 on grounds that her husband committed adultery. Mr. Ayida, according to judge, Morenike Obadina, filed an answer to the petition but did not give oral evidence to support it. She said the position of the law was settled as pleadings did not amount to evidence.
