Exclusive: Toke Makinwa’s Sensational Memoir “On Becoming” is Out on Monday…Read Excerpts

There is no doubt that media personality Toke Makinwa is one strong woman. We got a copy of her soon to be released book – On Becoming and it has been an interesting and eye-opening read so far!

She says it “is not a tell-all but a must tell”, and the book did speak of many things. She spoke of her childhood days, and the sad loss of her parents as a result of a fire incident in their home when she was 8 years old and its impact on her life.

Here are excerpts.

The Discovery

I got on my knees in front of him, my voice calm as I can make it. “Maje, you can’t keep lying. What is going on?

He walks away, leaving me there with my heart in my hands. I see him pacing, like he is having a private conversation. Then all of a sudden, he walks back to the living room, looks straight into my eyes and says, ‘She’s pregnant’.

I fall to the ground. My head….

‘What’s she having?’

‘A boy,’ he says.

‘How long have you known?’

‘I’ve always known…. It was what I thought I wanted,’ he says.

In her book, Toke reveals details as she works towards her healing.

The devil finds a way to fill your head with lies when you have just gone through a period. These lies can make you question everything, including the very purpose of your existence. Lies like:

‘You’re not good enough’

‘This is the best thing that could have happened to you and now it’s falling apart’

‘This will end you’

When this lies came, God’s word provided a much-needed comfort and a reminder of my identity and His plans for me.
