Toke Makinwa’s Must Read Memoir “On Becoming”…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 Other Woman
  • Breakups and Makeups
  • Contemplating Suicide


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.


We do not want to give too many details away. This book is a MUST READ! Toke will be launching it in Nigeria this Sunday, November 27, 2016.

It will be released on November 28, 2016, in bookstores across Nigeria, South Africa, Kenya, United Kingdom and the United States.

E-Books will be available on Kindle, Amazon, OkadaBooks and more. Be sure to get a copy!
