Toke Makinwa’s estranged husband has confirmed they are already in court and said Toke Makinwa’s book has hurt his brand.
While speaking with Tofarati Ige about his lifestyle, growing up and estranged wife, he said people tend to believe what they read, hence, her book has done his brand more bad than good. Here are few points from the interview. Excerpts below:
How would you describe your personality?
I’m very down-to-earth and positive. I don’t have a quick temper and I like to solve problems. I also like to interact with people and I’m very expressive with words and adventurous.
Is it true you’re taking Toke Makinwa to court over her book, On Becoming which contains some derogatory material about you?
I’m not at liberty to discuss that. Since the case is already in court, it would be illegal for me to do so.
Has the book affected your brand?
People tend to form a perception of you from what they read or hear about you. Having those kinds of things written about me and circulating in the public domain has definitely hurt my brand, though it’s hard to quantify the kind of impact it has had. However, I concentrate my energy on doing good work and letting it speak for me.
Do you foresee any chance of reconciliation between the both of you?
I’m not at liberty to discuss that.
