I remember when I published my last post about Toke Makinwa and Maje Ayida, I was really upset with the way fitness and lifestyle expert made his breakup with On-Air-Personality, Toke so public and in our faces with his Twitter rants. I did not fail to let him know this in very strong words.
Anyway, the on-and-off love birds gave the world a shocker when they had a secret registry wedding on January 15. To tell you the truth, no blogger has the true story of how they made up and tied the knot.
Laila’s Blog which was the first to break the story initially reported that the bride didn’t know that she was to get married, but was tricked by a popular magazine to believe that she was going for a wedding photoshoot; all to be whisked away to the registry to meet Maje and her loved ones, after her hair and makeup was done. She later posted an update that the pair got married because “they were undeniably in love” and couldn’t do without each other.
Inside sources also revealed to Bella Naija that Maje felt miserable about the break-up. And to get his one and true love with him forever, he ensured that he popped the big question and tied the knot as soon as possible.
The private ceremony was held in Lagos with family and a few close friends in attendance.
I’m very happy for Toke and Maje. I’m also glad that Maje later realised the right thing to do. I once predicted that if they got married, the marriage would have 0% chance of surviving because they had zero tolerance for each other, looking at their on/off trend.
After my sister read my analysis on Toke and Maje, she gave me a call and laughed at me. She said she’s known Toke since their school days and that those two were genuinely in love and she doubted if they’ll ever break up for good. My sister was right.
For all that is good, I pray that I’m wrong and I pray that the Holy Spirit will daily teach them how to live in marital bliss.
Congratulations, Toke and Maje. I wish you the very best from the bottom of my heart.
