So last week Friday, February 14, 2020, many of you guys did what most people do every February 14: LOVE UP!
On the other hand, many of us who are booless decided to spend the day drinking our favourite alcoholic beverages and having unnecessary conversations with selected exes, but we did not harbour any hatred towards the pseudo-holiday.
That was not entirely the case for actress and OAP, Toke Makinwa. The beautiful celebrity said she hates Valentine’s Day
On the latest episode of her Vlog “Toke Moments“, Toke lists out a couple of valid reasons why Valentine’s Day is not her favourite day of the year.
Phew!!! Last week was Valentines and I roasted, yes watch me hate on the day cos I don’t know why its such a Fad. Happy Valentines to all the lovers in the house, don’t mind me, I am a hater I know.
Watch the vlog here:
Toke is not new to controversies concerning romantic relationships.
In 2014, she got married to fitness and wellness coach, Maje Ayida in a ceremony that was talked about for a long time. Unfortunately the couple separated in 2015 after Toke accused Maje of serial infidelity. She filed for divorce in 2016 and the pair were legally divorced in 2017.
After their separation, Toke went on to write a best-selling book, “On Becoming” which chronicled her life and marriage to Maje.
Since then, the actress has been the poster-girl for the Baby Girl Movement of Nigeria. Sometime in December 2018, she tweeted about trying to love again, but unfortunately it didn’t work out.
She tweeted: This year I tried to give Love a Chance again but let’s just say “if a fish and a bird fell in love, where would they make home”??? Still figuring me out but it was the best times I had #2018Lessons

Last year, she also spoke about planning to give marriage a chance again as she would be turning 35 soon.
She wrote: “Calling on all travel companies, let’s make magic together this November, I turn 35 and I want a solid girls’ trip to my dream destination Phuket – Thailand. I want to wake up to the sounds of the ocean, visit nearby islands, drink some rum and live it up as it’s my last year as a single girl. Ready to give marriage a second chance and of course the bambinos too. So if you’ll like to sponsor my friends and I to create the best content ever, let’s do it big in November. #TMat35 #The35Club #Lastyearsingle Tag them all.”
So now, she is hating on Valentine’s Day. It’s alright sha. May God be with Toke.
