Toke Makinwa advises ladies on self, love and career.

While many people believe love is a beautiful and selfless feeling filled with lots of sacrifices and comprises, Toke Makinwa seems to think otherwise and she has taken to social media to advise other women.

The media personality who has been rather controversial on opinions relating to love and relationships ever since her much publicized divorce from her ex-husband Maje Ayida has not allowed the continuous criticisms stop her from airing her views.

In a recent post which she shared on her Instagram page, she advised women to choose themselves, their career and their peace of mind over loosing themselves all in the name of love.

In her words: "Ladies, choose you. Choose your career, choose your peace of mind. Love is a blessing and a beautiful thing but don't loose who you are for nobody."

This comes as no surprise considering the not-so-good details she revealed about her marriage to Maje Ayida which lasted for two years.

In her book, On Becoming, which she wrote about her life and shared some intimate details about her failed marriage, she revealed that she bleached her skin and did many other things just to please her then husband who did not reciprocate in like measure.

Well, her advise is valid, considering the number of people that give up on themselves in the name of love. We hope her advise is welcomed with more positivity than backlash this time around.
