Maje Ayida Publicly Apologizes to Wife, Toke Makinwa

I am writing to express my sincerest apologies to my wife. I was wrong, it is indefensible and I am sorry. I deeply regret what my wife and my family has had to endure. My behaviour has caused a lot of anguish to everyone. Though this matter has been very public in nature, it is a private issue and I would appreciate the opportunity to face it privately. I love my wife and will make every effort to make things right cc @tokemakinwa

While I wish I could Honour his request for privacy, I have a few questions 

-Why make a public apology then ask for privacy? Besides its too late for that now...
-Was a public apology really necessary? (A lot of people think not. But I think her humiliation was very public, so a public apology might actually be necessary)
-What about the "other" woman?
-Should Toke forgive him? In her shoes would you forgive him?

Notice how he called her "his wife"? Hmmm, Issorai, I really wish them both the best. 


  1. U see that thing U did with the Capital letters? My exact issue with him. What took him so long!!! Mistake or not, it has happened. Everyone should move on!

    In her shoes, I'll forgive him if he genuinely makes me happy & makes real efforts not to cheat again because we know say no be jazz & the D didn't just fall into the woman's D. Yet no one is perfect.
    Plus that baby is innocent oh! They had better Love him!!!

    10. Uyi's Anon, I see you o, you are well done! No wonder...

      @Ruthy's anon, please give it a rest. What is all this negativity and hate getting you? If she offended you, forgive her and move on with your life. All this hate is just making you a more bitter person and keeping you in the past. Plus, this is Thelma's blog not Ruthy's blog. Send your hate mail to her email address, I'm sure you know it.

    11. And sunshine knows the anon, ... Is it safe to add 1 and 2 together now? Lol

    12. Uyi thinks it is me shaaa... lmao! me that i'm just laughing....

      *strolling by*

    13. Kabouy, did u notice u use 4dots most times instead of the usual and regular 3dots? Hehehehe.

      U better comeback here

    14. Lmaooo! And that's how Uyi wie be feeling like one CIA agent! Yinmu toh badt! Hahahahaaa! I don't know what you're talking about.... *tongue in cheek*

  2. What even infuriates me most is the fact that people are impressed, happy, and even praising Maje for apologizing publicly and believe that the apology is enough reason for Toke to forgive him and get back with him! that alone in itself is disturbing.

    This really is not my business and break is over... but i just had to say this.
    i'll come back at 5 for more.... *shaking my head in dismay* we have a long way to go..

    1. No way. I'm not expecting her to forgive him due to his flimsy apology, hell No. There are some hurts that NO amount of apologies can heal but REASONABLE efforts on his part could get that forgiveness.

    2. Forgive and bring your husband(if you still love him) home jare... Life is too short for negative emotion.

  3. All I want to say is Toke is pretty.... On Maje's apologies.. Not my biz....TNHW

    1. Lol. Same thoughts ooo. I'm only seeing how pretty she looks in the picture. The rest.... I can't deal.

    2. NNE where have u been?welcome ohh,I missssss ya.

  4. Sometimes it takes more than an apology to mend broken trust.

    Whatever toke she sabi. Am not going to waste any of my brain cells on the issue.

  5. Na them sabi. every aboki with is kettle. Maybe na me no go school well. there is no remorse in his letter. He still wants to keep the gbobe secrete. SMH. watin concern me self.

    1. No remorse whatsoever! Besides, no need to bother, things ll neva be d way they were, both in public and in private!!! Duhh! And d 'wife' thing is because they re married legally and not divorced yet. Ugly idiot!

  6. Uhhhhhhhhhh...The Confusion surrounding the Marriage institution.... Alrighty Yup! It is marriage and he cheated on her which goes against the vows they both made....buh see, in Marriage, you have to forgive as many times as you can, NO MATTER whatever was done to you cuz of the same vows you both made....buh the problem with this apology is not whether or not it came late...the problem is why apologize 'publicly' to your wife?? I mean, the 'public' knowing bout the affair he had, did nothing buh add more fuel into the already blazing fire. So why would he attempt this move when the 'public' could easily misinterpret it as a scheme to get her back.

    Publicizing an apology + an appeal for privacy to work things out makes no sense. Oh well, I dunno what to say cuz I am not sure how I would react if my husband cheated me...I probably would need to watch the whole seasons of 'How to get away with Murder'....or the whole seasons of 'Revenge'...either way, I will be going with one.

    1. Sometimes I try to look at things from different angles, maybe the apology is coming late because he has been begging in private and someone (probably Toke herself) advised him tom make a public apology before she even considers forgiveness. After all she is a public personality.
      Now this is just me being me.... Lol
      Meanwhile she fine for dis picture shaaa!!! Who woulda thunk it?

    2. Steele, I'm so with you bruv. Straight up fact. I know toke is someone DAT would want the husband to apologize publicly

  7. MEN, MEN, MEN, i wonder how many MEN will make heaven? You publicly humiliate and redicule your wife and you still claim to love her. MAJE thunder fire that your mouth there, because you know nothing about LOVE. LOVE does not offend the one they love, yet alone go to the extent which Maje went. Because our culture condones its a man's world everyone ( esp men ) believes Toke should forgive him and go on with her marriage like nothing happened.
    Have ppl who are giving this opinion tried to put themselves in Toke's shoes and just imagine how broken this lady is. We all know that for the fact Toke aint showing her " brokenness" publicly that is one of the reasons why Maje just knows he is in deep shit and is forced to publicly apologize, because he really does not know Toke's next move.
    See eh, i believe we are all adults and we should be responsible for our actions. Toke should forgive Maje BUT she should just move on ( i know this is very hard but its her best option for now) with her life because if she takes him back, the other lady and the innocent child ( maybe children) will always be in the picture.
    This saga just reminded me of the yoruba movie i watched yesterday, the only difference is that the mistress was the wife friend and eventually the wife killed the mistress and her husband, and trained the baby but sold the baby's soul to the devil to ensure that poverty and frustration never departed from the child's life( Note this punishment was to be for her hubby but death averted it so it was passed to the child). This is just one in a million examples of how far a scorned woman can go.

    Men or Women that cheat especially in marriages, its far deeper than what you think. Divorce your partner if you think the centre can no longer hold, rather than play with people's emotions. You will be shocked how far people can go to actually punish the " Cheater" and aslo how far the Cheater demoralizes the partners well being in all ramification of lives.
    Lastly, in my opinion until Nigeria or African laws begins to frown at infertility and begin to promulgate laws to protect a lady from a cheating husband, i bet this infertility on the men will always be on the increase. Have u ever wondered how our married african men readily stick to one lady abroad? Just because they know what they stand to loose if they are caught cheating. For the very few that cheat, they use everything within their means to cover it up, unlike most of their counterparts here in Africa that rub it in the faces of their spouses.
    Am so sorry for my epistle, but i just needed men to know its not ok for them to cheat on their wives and feel a mere SORRY will fix things up. There are so many people that have become broken because of this and this is also one of the major reasons for the rise of dysfunctional families in our societies.
    I will just stop here, cos if i continue i probably wont stop...

    1. I love u, I thought I typed this!!!

    2. After your first sentence I couldn't go on and read the rest

    3. Someone I loving u Steele and ur head dey swell. Lol

    4. I swear down Steele. I just cant read negativities... Immediately I saw the first sentence!

      Scrolled down straight-up

    5. Uyi and Steele, you better "year" the truth!

  8. Infidelity not Infertility i meant to write.

  9. Please he should go and sleep

  10. what Thelma, Konga on your blog.
    Dancing shakily bobo#
    we don dey hammer oh!

  11. Ok Marriage is for better and for worst
    This is a sample of the worst
    I cannot believe I am saying this, even though I doubt if this guy could ever love Toke as much as she loves him
    I feel he WILL CHEAT again
    but then again she can't tell me she didn't know what she was going into while dating/marrying him.

    1. I hope you're not the anon that has been correcting people's grammar since

    2. Hahahahaha actually it was Mallama that corrected the CV and apology poster. The anonymous just pointed out the mistake made by the "correcter" while correcting. J

    3. All of them anon are all rocking the same boat or canoe

  12. They should start up a marriage counselling firm and name it 'Everything Public'.
    I've read a lot of comments on this 'very public apology' and most of these comments were in praise of Maje for publicly apologizing....... what the......W (can't say d vulgar word abeg)
    Anyway, whether she forgives him or not is their toro, but they need to infuse a lot of privacy in their lives. They are married to each other and not to the public.

  13. I read a story on fb few days ago. A woman cheated with her friend's husband when the friend was in the hospital, she kept it secret for a while and later confessed to the friend when she can no longer bear the guilt. The friend confronted her husband and he confessed too, she felt bad, cried, prayed and later forgave both husband and friend. She advised her friend to confess to her husband and that was the end of that marriage. After the wife's confession, the man got mad and said he's through with the marriage. He even sent the woman packing. It took the intervention of both parents, pastor and friends before he allowed her to return to his house. It's been three years since this incident but the man had neither touched his wife nor ate her food.

    Now Maje cheated on his wife, humiliated her publicly and after some weeks he writes few lines of apology online and some people are praising him, expecting Toke to simply nod her head and say its ok. If reverse should be the case will the people saying this advice Maje to do the same?

    #its a mans world# #Being a woman in Nigeria#

  14. I think Toke would want a public apology based on all the drama that ensued.

    Will a public apology fix this, HELL NO. But for her own sanity, she should forgive him, whether she decides to continue with the marriage will be a factor of how much they both want to 'work' on the marriage.

    The key thing here is that if tables were turned, hell would freeze over before a man would take back a wife who errs as such.

    Things will never be the same though.

    1. Exactly! Will the apology fix things? Will saying sorry publicly restore the trust?

      It's one huge mess already they shouldn't make it a 'huger' mess.

  15. The whole thing is just sad. Public getting involved made it even worse. Marriage is for better for worse though. They both need serious counselling and a lot of work to make this work. Whatever decision she makes,people will still judge her. She should go with whatever makes her happy. J

  16. Marriage ain't for better for worse mbok! Ain't nowhere it's written in ANY of the holy books!

    Forgiving him is the thing to do. If I were her, I most definitely would move on. That apology up there has no iota of sincerity in my opinion. Dude is only sorry he got caught!

  17. I'm really wondering why commenters(virtually all ladies) are really shortsighted about this post. How do u guys just think he's come on social media, put up 'some lines' and then 'felt' he can be forgiven.

    This is the problem when people always expect the worst from you. Even when you do the right thing, most people will always see it and wrong/bad. Its really sad. Please at these things in perspective.

    Its as if this is like one nollywood movie plot to you guys. These are real life human beings with real life issues and cos he could summon up courage to put his private apologies in public just to show HIS WIFE that he's truly sorry.
    I'm wondering if anyone of you in Toke's shoes would end marraige just like DAT. Have u guys ever fallen in love before? I doubt that.

    1. Please look at these things in perspective***

    2. Truth be told Uyi. At the risk of sounding insensitive, i really dont care what goes on in their marriage.... it is absolutely none of my business. if she chooses to forgive him or move on. Thats totally her decision to make.
      where i have a problem is when people are applauding maje for apologizing. Like are they really seeious? I have read orishirishi about this apology.... "ehn they had it all planned" "she has already forgiven him she just wants to make it official" "she made him do it", yada yada yada... but the most annoying one is those applauding him. That one, i cant get past.

  20. I'm confused by this couple though. Their entire break-up two years ago played out on twitter/facebook/vlogs like fiction, and then a few weeks later, like fiction, I saw pictures of them getting married. Then she had the wedding picture in the background of hr vlogs, and I realised say omo gehl don marry true true o. the entire thing was confusing, but we had to accept it. And then this pregnancy scandal all got played out on the internet... even to the way she handled the issue, bouncing right back and acting like it was her alter ego the whole shenanigans happened to, and not her made me wonder "Everything dey OK with this girl?"... and now, the guy wants to apologise, and he goes to Instagram to write that essay?
    Wo, gbogbo things yi ti su mi.
    Are these people for real? which is a gimmick/publicity stunt here, which is real, and which is just plain weird? I'm really confused.

  21. Public marriage matter. The guy doesnt seem to have much respect for himself talkless of another person. Infidelity is a big deal- it breaks down relationships - many beyond repair. Because people dont leave doesnt mean they wholly believe in the marriage.

    I wish them both the best as they make their decisions.


  22. Am here to testify what this great spell caster done for me. i never believe in spell casting, until when i was was tempted to try it. i and my husband have been having a lot of problem living together, he will always not make me happy because he have fallen in love with another lady outside our relationship, i tried my best to make sure that my husband leave this woman but the more i talk to him the more he makes me fell sad, so my marriage is now leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. so with all this pain and agony, i decided to contact this spell caster to see if things can work out between me and my husband again. this spell caster who was a woman told me that my husband is really under a great spell that he have been charm by some magic, so she told me that she was going to make all things normal back. she did the spell on my husband and after 5 days my husband changed completely he even apologize with the way he treated me that he was not him self, i really thank this woman her name is Dr Aluta she have bring back my husband back to me i want you all to contact her who are having any problem related to marriage issue and relationship problem she will solve it for you. her email is she is a woman and she is great. wish you good time.
    He cast spells for different purposes like
    (1) If you want your ex back.
    (2) if you always have bad dream
    (3) You want to be promoted in your office.
    (4) You want women/men to run after you.
    (5) If you want a child.
    (6) You want to be rich.
    (7) You want to tie your husband/wife to be yours forever.
    (8) If you need financial assistance.
    (10) is the only answer to that your problem of winning the lottery

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…


Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
See how you are serious dey read this story....!


A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…


I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!

Question of The Day.

TTB readers doesn't this tweet below remind you of something?
That mail that someone sent me a few weeks back. 
But why on earth should a man sleep with his son's fiancé? But what am I saying, some men even sleep with their daughters...

Oh well, I'm throwing the question to you. What has happened in your life that you never saw coming, you never hesperred it, you never imagined could happen, you never imagined could happen to you? 
It could be good, it could be bad, it could be ugly. Do tell!
And it can be more than one. Let me tell you a few. 
-owning a blog -week long dry fast at Prayer City (I never hesperred it).  -staying in an (emotionally) abusive relationship.
The others require anonymity. LOL. Now over to you.
