Toke Makinwa and her Banana Island Home: Seeing beyond ‘big gods’



Toke Makinwa

Popular media personality, Toke Makinwa has been rumoured to be evicted from her Banana Island Home by AMCON.

This was due to the failure of one of her ‘big gods’, Festus Fadeyi’s ability to continue the payment after the #240bn debt saga.

We will recall that Makinwa, on her 35th birthday, showed off her dream house and thousands of people reacted to her ‘big gods’ claim, then.

Earlier this week, there have been reactions (negative & positive) on her eviction from the ‘dream house’ of Banana Island and her promiscuous lifestyle. To many, all that she got from her ‘big gods’ will slip her by one after another, claiming that the ‘gods’ of the wives of her ‘big gods’ won’t spare her.

Aside Makinwa’s beauty; which could serve as a leverage for her just the way IQ does for many, records show that she’s doing well enough to possess whatever she desires; Toke Makinwa has been blazing the trails (at least) for a considerable number of years. Here is a quick peep into her life:

•Makinwa’s Love Life
Makinwa was married to Maje Ayida early 2014 even when the marriage was dissolved by a Lagos High Court on the basis of adultery which could happen to anybody, of course.

•Makinwa’s Endorsements
Aside the ‘runs deal’, Makinwa was an ambassador of the UAC, Nigeria in 2013, became Maggi face with Nestle in 2014 alongside Tiwa Savage. In 2015, together with Tayo Faniran, Payporte and Ciroc signed her as ambassador. She was brand ambassador and face of Mecran Cosmetics in 2016.

Late 2019, Oppo mobile Telecommunications also gave her an ambassadorial deal.
All these put together, she could be adjudged a success without her ‘big gods’ deal, don’t you think?

Here, Makinwa could be scored below average as she hadn’t won up to half of the awards she was nominated for. Aside the famous events she’s hosted, below are the list of the awards since 2012:
-2012 The Future Award: got nominated for On Air (radio) personality

-Won the year 2013 Outstanding Female Presenter of the Nigeria Broadcasters Award

  • 2014: Got nominated for Nickelodeon Kid’s Choice Awards as Favorite Nigeria OAP, Entertainment Personality and Best OAP of the Nigeria Entertainment Awards of the same year.

-She got nominated for ELOY Awards as 2014 TV Presenter and Brand (maggi) ambassador.
