Toke Makinwa tells the story of how her parents died following a house fire at age 35 & 34

In her book, Toke Makinwa recalled the fire that claimed the lives of her parents who were just 35 (dad) and 34 (mum) at the time of their deaths. They died when Toke, their second child and one of four children, was just 8 years old. The fire was caused by a gas cylinder explosion at their home
"My dad had come out of the building smelling of burning rubber, putting out the fire on his shorts as he tried to explain what happened to a crowd that seemed to be getting bigger every minute. There was something I could taste in my mouth; it was fear. Fear gripped me and I could barely move. In movies, you sometimes see a scene with someone burning from head to toe. Everyone ran back trying to figure out who it was. It took a moment to realise it was my mum. I stood glued to the spot watching her burn."
You need to get the book to read the whole story. Quite riveting! This lady has gone through so much

Linda read the book and drop one post... at this rate u are making a mess of the book for the author with your unprofessionalism. You might as well post the whole book in form of different excerpts. As a woman u messed up and also I never really understood when pple complained abt your unprofessionalism until today. I know u dont like toke and y'all have had issues but this book looks like it came from a place of great pain. Show some respect for it. Read it blog about it and keep it moving. It looks like you are almost making fun of her situation. Your turn never come a d u never know as e go be. Small small o! #disappointedlib

My dear Toke, all I can say to you is 'It is well with you'. You see in life, don't you ever force yourself on people especially on a man. From your book, that exactly is what you did with Maje. What were you thinking for Christ sake? You cannot compete with a Calabar girl, Never!

Tell us when you get to the part where she joined the mile high club. I want to know who she gave doggy on a yacht and who she gave bj on a private jet. That's all.

TheRealAkon said...

The relationship was doomed right from the outset. His family didn't like her. She wasn't good enough for their son. It was FATAL ATTRACTIONS. Sex is a powerful weapon. Maje has the body of a stallion hence why these 2 hopeless women stuck in between.

You are the second child of your parents who were 35 and 34 when you were 8... Please, how old were your parents when they got married and birthed your elder sibling? Ain't some folks too old to tell some lies...?

Anonymous said...

lol. And she paid bloggers to do it in bits. This is story of everyday Nigerians. Go to Borno, and see people whose family members watched their head chopped. Herdsmen have burnt family members alive. Toke I salute you and all you have been through but it is obvious you are just selling a book. You are not Kim Kardashian. There is no spectacular story here. If Chinedu toast una, Una no go gree. You will say you want Mr 6-packs. Well news flash, every other woman wants Mr 6-packs too so marriage does not guarantee he will sleep with only you. To top it all, you decided to pick a body-builder.Some jobs are high risk for marriage because of the amount of exposure to stalkers and opposite sex. Entertainment, bodybuilding are in this category. To top it all, you did not marry someone who is a believer, now you want to hold him to standards of a godly man? Abegi go siddon. When you were showing off everywhere, sebi we told you to slow down. Una no dey learn. You will remarry and do same again. You like the limelight but not the shame sometimes associated with it? You gotta take it all my dear- Newyorker (pardon my errors, was typing fast)

Anonymous said...

She has to lie about their ages to match the lies about her own age. Lying to cover up other lies. That's Toke for you. Only the sharp will notice

At 31, my mum already had 7 kids and one of us was already 11. No lies there.

Toke is a pace setter! This is bravery in the face of high guaranteed level of hateful feedback. Many women live and die with their pain, not helping anyone especially younger women thus continue to encourage men to behave in such irresponsible ways just because they are men, and belive they can get away with anything.

Many women will speak ill of Toke, men count on women like these to keep them irresponsible. Only God knows why some women have such poor outlook on life. They have been brainwashed and have defeated attitude already. They see suffering and call it natural and women who complain become the enemies. They help these men perpetrate evil towards other women, maybe to fill a void in their sad powerless lives, to feel alive by testing others where there is an opportunity. Women need a rethink.

Toke, peace,love and joy to you.

Ms. Smiles said...

Why is life so messed up....why would one person have to go through the horror of seeing her parents die, and then fall into the hands of a mean cold hearted man as a spouse! Toke, I don't know you and I'm sure you are no perfect person, but no one deserves to go through all of these. I really hope that somehow, your joy would be full and you would find true happiness. That the universe would smile down on you. I'm so proud of you that you found the strength to get out of that relationship.
