When the alleged cheating scandal which involved popular media personality Toke Makinwa, and her ex-husband Maje Ayida (popular fitness coach) and his alleged baby-mama-to-be (as at that time), Anita Solomon, the Nigerian social media space was set on fire.
According to insider’s scoop, Toke Makinwa knew about Anita Solomon long before her 18-month marriage to Maje Ayida hit the rocks.
According to Toke, Anita Solomon has been stalking her husband (as at that time) for a very long time.
“My husband had a stalker for years. She’s crazy. This girl would turn up in his house. The day I met her, she said I have a baby by him. You can’t come between the two of us. I started believing her because how can someone say to you that she has a 6 year old baby by this guy and I started fighting him, like you’re lying.
But later on, when I witnessed one of their showdowns, she literally just showed up at his house unannounced and he had to call the cops and this girl stripped naked. I was embarrassed. She said to him, you don’t pick my phone calls…he had to change his phone three times because she would call non-stop. I walked into that situation. It was before I began dating him; imagine how long this girl has been there.”
She revealed this in 2015 (April) in a feature episode on Moments with MO guest feature episode with Dolapo Oni, Bolanle, Omawunmi and Veronika Odeka.
