Toke Makinwa, a media personality, and former radio host have said that she believed certain unfavorable stories about veteran actress Genevieve Nnaji sleeping around to maintain her celebrity lifestyle.
Toke sits down with Actress Lilian Afegbai in a new juicy episode of “Toke Moments” to explore a variety of topics ranging from dating in Lagos to the demands of social media and individuals attempting to grow up quickly.
The TV host also said that before she became popular, she was one of those who believed that some performers, particularly top female superstars like Genevieve Nnaji, only achieved fame by sleeping with guys.
She related her story and stated how her attitude toward Genevieve Nnaji and others with large riches altered when she got 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.”
