Official photos from Toke Makinwa's book launch

‘On Becoming’ the memoir by Nigeria’s sweetheart, Toke Makinwa was launched on Sunday 27th of November 2016 at an intimate gathering held at The Wheatbaker Hotel, Ikoyi, Lagos.

The intimate event hosted by Tee A and Gbemi Olateru-Olagbegi was attended by close friends, family, industry colleagues and well wishers. The evening started with a keynote address by Hon. Abike Dabiri after which a short behind-the-scenes clip ‘The Journey to Become’ directed by The Film Factory played.

EbonyLife TV Chairwoman, Mo Abudu then hosted a beautifully curated ‘Conversations with Toke’ interjected with musical interludes by Waje, Niyola, Nikki Laoye, Chigurl, Funbi and Timi Dakolo. Each star sang renditions of carefully chosen songs by the Author representing different chapters of her memoir. Song choices include Aretha Franklin’s A Rose is Still a Rose and Whitney Houston’s Exhale (Shoop).

The highlight of the evening was the official unveiling of ‘On Becoming’, flanked by Lady Esther Akinyelure, Mo Abudu, Ruth Osime and Adebola Adenike; Hon. Abike Dabiri unveiled a life size version of the book art to breathtaking fireworks and theatrics.

The book readings then commenced with Debola Williams and Arese Ugwu who read excerpts from the Prologue and 1st Chapter whilst guests delighted their tastebuds with deliciously scrumptious
Baileys-infused sweet treats.
The evening ended with a book signing whilst posing for pictures with the Author. The celebration continued as guests tasted and savoured signature Baileys and Ciroc cocktails.

On Becoming is published by Kachifo (under its Prestige imprint) and now available nationwide at select bookstores across Nigeria, South Africa, Kenya, United Kingdom and United States. E-Books will be available on Kindle, Amazon, OkadaBooks and others.

Toke Makinwa is mouthed sha.....Pulling this kinda celeb together for her book launch is indicative of her value in the industry. Anyways on BECOMING....' i will just advise all to be more careful in choosing their life partner....dig deeper and be sure that you have really found him or her and hold on to it with prayers.

Retarded bastard! You're a disgrace to womanhood! All you do is to sow the fruit of distrust into young girls with your whoreish stories and vlog videos! I just hoe to hear Maje's part! Just cooked up some dumb ass stories just to seek public sympathy! It's only a whore that would see all the handwritings on the wall and still be chasing one man for 12years when it's obvious the man and the family hates you! Retarded talentless bitch ass bitch!!!!! Tokemakinwa Enjoy the little fame you've just got while it lasts, wicked hoe!!!

Tokemakinwa, saying all these shit about Maje won't change the fact that you're a whore, deeply hurt, you feel less human about what your ex did to you.

that was why you framed up some fake ass story to tarnish his image
