Hello lovelies welcome back to my blog. As you know I am a huge supporter of Toke Makinwa and super proud of everything she has accomplished. Toke literally walked up the ladder of success, she is one of the hardest working woman I know. Hate her or Love her, you can not deny that she definitely deserves all the success and buzz around her now. I just recently finished reading her first book #OnBecoming (Detailed review coming up soon) and I could not believe all I read. I think I cried for a bit but overall I felt very inspired and challenged to do so much more and be more. Toke Makinwa lost both her parents to a fire accident when she was just 8yrs old, but here she is in her early 30’s doing exceptionally well.
Some days ago Toke came to Abuja city to launch her book and for a brief book reading , the day she visited was a super busy day for me, but I was not going to miss meeting a woman I admire so much for anything. I and my dear friend Onyinye attended this event. The event took place at Sandralia Hotel in Jabi. Event started at about 4pm and ended by 7pm. I was standing by the cocktail stand waiting to get my drink, when Toke Makinwa walked into the room, she looked so stunning I could not even believe my eyes. She is beautiful. She apologized for coming late and the book reading kicked off immediately. She was interview for some minutes and then it was time for questions from the audience. A lot of ladies and a man asked several questions, some commented on her beauty and others thanked her for being an inspiration.
After the book reading and all, it was time for book signing and taking pictures, I patiently waited for everyone to take pictures and have their books signed, as I wanted to have enough time to chit chat with her. When it eventually got to my turn, I hugged her and posed for a picture. I then told her about how I got her book, told her about my businesses and SISTERS NETWORK (My hub for female entrepreneurs and professionals), she was uber excited. We chatted for some minutes, she signed my book and I made my way to get some #OnBecoming T-shirts and Cap. Got home at some minutes past 9pm (was too tired to go for the after party), took off my lashes, washed my face, uploaded some picture to my Instagram and went to bed (I didn’t even have dinner )
Here are some pictures from the event. Enjoy and make sure you leave a comment.
Make sure you get and read #OnBecoming. It also makes for a great Christmas gift.
