‘On Becoming’ author Toke Makinwa is standing up against the act of shaming divorcees.
She made this comment while responding to a discussion between two Instagram users who were weighing in on the social media brouhaha between Cool FM presenter, Daddy Freeze and singer Timi Dakolo.
Both have been engaging themselves in a dirty fight concerning the ideology of marriage and divorce (read here).
Freeze, who is a divorcee seemed to have dismissive opinion about the subject, while Dakolo, a one-time Idols West Africa winner feels a union between a man and wife should be sacred.
The heated conversation between the pair soon became an issue of who is in a more informed position to offer marriage advice.
Toke, who is also a divorcee took to her Twitter handle to condemn the act of shaming divorcees after a Twitter user mocked her for always dishing out relationship advice.
See the tweets below…
“The annoying thing is that@tokstarr used to talk about relationship on radio until she got served,” an Instagram user King Kennedy wrote.
The media personality retorted saying, “Got served by who???? Who gon serve me???
“The ultimate shaming of people who have or are going thru this thing called ‘divorce’ must stop. No one prays it to happen.
“Life happens. You deal the hand that you have been dealt and keep it moving,” she added.
Makinwa recently crossed a big hurdle in her life when an Igbosere High Court in Lagos dissolved her three-year-old marriage to Maje Ayida over allegations of infidelity during their union (read here).
She covered some of her rough experiences in last published book “On Becoming“. She is now a source of inspiration to the women-folk, especially those who have gone through a similar path.
