Months ago (before Toke Makinwa’s publicised break up with her boo of 12 years, Maje Ayida), OAP Toke Makinwa, was invited to Mo Abudu’s ‘Moment with Mo programme’ and was asked to talk about ‘Ladies and engagement rings…side effects of being engaged for too long, etc’. The episode was however aired last night on Ebony TV.
Right there, Toke argued that she would not return her engagement ring if it does not take her to the altar. She said “I would rather give it to a jeweller to turn it into earrings than return it because I worked hard all those years for it. ”
The show hosts, Dolapo, Adora and Bolanle however disagreed with her and opined that it would be better to return the ring.
Recall that Maje and Toke got engaged in 2013, “I’ve known Maje for 11 years, we’ve been together on/off for about eight years. People have married me off in their heads. We got engaged this year. And we were supposed to get married this year as well but I think it’s the scheduling. Our schedules gotten so busy. Everyone says to me, just do it already. We map out some time to plan and then we get carried away cos he’s doing a lot of good things too – he’s in the health and fitness sector, and he’s working a lot of major companies. So, sometimes he’s in session for like 3, 4 weeks ….” she disclosed last year.
Now that the two (Toke and Maje) are no longer together, the question is, did Toke Makinwa return Maje’s engagement ring or sold it out as claimed in the interview???
