BN Exclusive - Toke Makinwa & Maje Ayida - August 2013 - BellaNaija 023

Say hello to the latest couple in town.

Nigerian media personality Toke Makinwa and her fitness expert beau Maje Ayida are MARRIED. exclusively got the scoop that the on again, off again pair tied the knot on Wednesday 15th January 2014, but out of respect of their privacy, we decided not to report. The news was unveiled on Laila’s Blog.

Toke & Maje

After their much publicized split, insiders revealed to BN that Maje felt miserable about the break-up. And to get his one and true love with him forever, he ensured that he popped the big question and tied the knot as soon as possible.

The private ceremony was held in Lagos with family and a few close friends in attendance.


Toke sizzled in a custom white dress by Nigerian design label April by Kunbi. The designer took inspiration from a Berta Bridal dress with a gold belt.

Here are some signs via Twitter that she already tied the knot. These were sent out after the ceremony.




BN will bring you photos soon. Congrats to the couple.

      So the LIB commenter who said they saw Toke n Maje cuddling up at the movies wasn’t lying?
      Congrats to them both even though I’m feeling like this is a huge mistake on her part.
      I guess she wasn’t too busy to plan this one. Lol

      AFFORD A SOCIETY WEDDING! You know she’s at EVERYONE’s function, so
      everyone would have wanted to see what they would do! TOO MUCH

      most you be negative in your life. why cant you see the good in what others do. the fair opinion would have been they wanted a private wedding and it has nothing to do with money. gosh

    • Chinenye

      January 20, 2014 at 12:07 pm

      Thats quite nasty. They arent the first ‘celebs’ to have a low key wedding and guess what? No matter what they do, they’ll NEVER meet up to everyone’s expectations.

    January 17, 2014 at 9:08 pm

    Congrats ! I knew they were still together. I saw them at silverbird cuddling up to each other last week or so. They never broke up o! It was all a publicity stunt .

    • Donald-Landon

      January 17, 2014 at 9:48 pm

      Yes. I knew that breakup interview was a stunt. They did that to throw people off their raider. Janet. Jackson did the same thing with Wissam al Mana. She denied and denied and even lied a couple of times that she had broken up with Wissam. Only for everyone to fine out early last year that they had been married for 5 months.

    • MyView

      January 17, 2014 at 10:01 pm

      Actually, they did break up. They were supposed to do this a few weeks ago but the guy left her at the registry. They did get back together with conditions.

      You just don’t get it do you???
      There’s nothing like getting back together because they never separated in the first instance! It was all a publicity stunt!!

    • Tamar

      January 17, 2014 at 10:38 pm

      This mentality Naija women have that getting the ring means you’re a winner is the dumbest shit I ever heard. Disgusting.

      Congrats to the couple again.

    • Diya

      January 17, 2014 at 11:20 pm

      Marriage & having a piece of jewelry around your left finger must be your ultimate goal in life. Comments like this shows how senseless, desperate & helpless many Nigerian & other women become when marriage is concerned. Even if the man is an asshole, a ring will calm down many women & their gra gra.

      Congrats to the couple.

    BN, it’s not always about you. People just want to hear the news. SO what if you knew about it first? Just share it and stop claiming to have known about it before everyone else. NO ONE CARES.

    HML Toke and Maje

    • Angry immigrant

      January 17, 2014 at 11:02 pm

      I agree @ yostic.

      BN, that line claiming you had “exclusive scoop” and decided not to blog it is sooooooooo not necessary and it’s very hard to believe. Duh.

    • RME

      January 18, 2014 at 9:23 am

    • I see friends shaking hands, saying how do you do? They're really saying I love you

    I don’t understand how BN got an ‘ exclusive scoop ‘, if LIB also had the same gist – and went ahead to publish it first…upon which BN’S ‘ respect for their privacy ‘ promptly evaporated! Ha! Just act like big girls and admit that they beat you guys to this one 😉

    To the newly-weds, HML, LLNP, GBYH, PPP, etc. You get my drift

    she is an attention seeker! i bet u they “broke up” for publicity. a lot of people commented on that post that they broke up. thats what they wanted. whatever, she has accomplished a nigerian womans purpose for living which is to get married. now she can sit down on do some more blogs.

    January 17, 2014 at 9:54 pm

    BN, stop trying to claim fore-knowledge.
    As for those ur insiders *side-eye*.
    ‘Toke sizzled in a custom white dress by Nigerian design label April by Kunbi’ does not equal ‘And to get his one and true love with him forever, he ensured that he popped the big question and tied the knot as soon as possible’ – in my book. Custom made takes time and planning.
    You missed this one. Good news all da same though! Many warm e-hugs to Toke.

    What some women go through just to get a ring and answer ‘mrs somebody’. And to imagine some other women get married without so much stress, hassle or hustle.
    Finally Toke you’re married, can we finally rest?
    A little advice: pls pls keep your married life PRIVATE, marriage is not a relationship you can jump in and out of.
    Congarts and may the good lord bless your union

    Hahaha they say he who laughs last laughs best, am so happy for Toke..
    Am not even a fan, never watched her videos, my love for Toke grew when I saw the
    Hatred and insults pple send her way anytime her pic was posted. Various blogs make up
    All kind of stories about this chick’s poor life, at a point I was like how can one person take all this. Then came her break up story, I felt so bad for her, I thought her haters wud now have reason to tear her apart and put her down completely. But then I noticed she kept on doing her thing with her head held high, I was soo proud of her and wished her well from my heart. So u can imagine how excited I am right now to read this wonderful news that she secretly tied the knot…..Congratulations girl, may your home be filled with happiness, love, beautiful children, health and every other thing u wish for. I don’t even know u but am sincerely happy for u….

    One more thing..I hope when toke gives advices on relationships y’all will listen. #Venita apko or whatever hope you watching this?

    • mrs I

      January 18, 2014 at 1:28 am

      No my dear, I won’t listen bcos as far as I’m concerned she’s still not a smart woman. It won’t take a smart woman 12yrs, a fake engagement and lotys of controversy to hook a guy. The whole thing reeks of desperation to me.
      My God, NIGERIAN WOMEN have we sunk so low that merely being married no matter how its done, no matter to whom, has become our life’s acheivement?
      Just moments ago a lot of u were bashing poor Maje, how he was a good-for-nothing 42 year old failed instructorthat Toke was too good for, all of a sudden, he’s a correct guy cos they got married????
      No wonder divorce rates are soaring

    • Non professional opinion

      January 18, 2014 at 9:51 am

      Toke is still Toke and Maje is still Maje, but now they
      have finally made this commitment, it’s not our job to tear them
      down and hope it doesn’t work out so that we feel vindicated in our
      opinions. God is watching after all. Grown folks know that marriage
      extends beyond the wedding day so their journey has just begun,
      let’s wish them well. “Lace-front grit” and “quarter to 50”, I wish
      you both happy married life may God bless your union. Just keep
      striving to do better than yesterday and ignore us “haters”. It’s
      been entertaining

    Are they both ashamed of each other that they had to make it a secret? To think that Toke is at everyone’s event including their wedding, yet she chose to hide hers….anything for attention…her pregnancy would be another attention seeking stunt. Just watch

      Less I forget, I guess THEY must have paid her to get

    If all that breakup stuff was a publicity stunt then it means these two are the biggest attention seekers in the world… Marriage is not the end, it is actually the beginning of the journey. With that said, I will grab my popcorn and wait for the real drama to unfold cos if they planned that breakup then na now we go see better drama

      written all over her..Was extremely happy for her when I saw this post, thinking: THIS IS THE END!!! Then I calmed down when it suddenly hit me that she might be back next Wednesday reciting everything my parents taught me before I turned 13..Yes I watch some of her vlogs but I guess I’m one of those ppl that will never understand why ppl are so fascinated with this chick.Never!!! Oh and congrats toke before someone chops my head off..

    This one is for all the haters! What will be, will be. Nobody knows why Toke sill loves Maje, despite, his cheating, flaws and baby Mama’s. Love conquers all, they fought and there was drama, but in that time a friendship and bond was formed between them, and I guess the finally stopped making a big deal out of the little things. You only live once, and you only love once. Once you have found true love you will get this post. I wish them well. I pray Maje will finally treat her right. God bless there union, Toke deserves it for her loyalty. The whole world told her that her man was rotten, but she should by him. I hope he appreciates it and ‘proves’ himself to be deserving of her love in the end, she has endured enough humiliation, its time for her to smile.

    Congratulation Toke and Maje. Toke I am so happy for you. The insults you got last year truly hurt my feelings, I remember a joke Linda Ikeji made on her blog right after an article with you and Maje saying that a long engagement is witchcraft. It pained me because I couldn’t understand how another woman (who happens to be single) could mock someone else’s relationship…it was unfair and I thank God for proving what with your promotion as a TV host and your new marriage that He has the final say. Just as the message I sent to you said, God will surely bless you, and He has and He will continue to. The more people hate without reason to, the more you will shine. Kisses!

      As a fellow woman, she had a duty not to continue it. That is bullying. Many people have committed suicide for being bullied. Linda, a single girl, is utterly irresponsible to diss another woman for being single -not that singleness is a disease. The society puts enough burden on women, you all should pull each other up. Not tear each other up to shine, while hiding or ignoring your own vices. African …., hats off to you.

      say’….. And before anyone asks, I do not know Toke Makinwa from
      anywhere. I dont even know anyone that knows here personally,
      especially the folks who claim she bleached. No one has been able
      to produce a pic of the babe when she was supposedly dark. Haba, we
      took group picture in primary and secondary school na. Anyway,
      enough of the digression, Toke has made her choice. She is happy

      “Now she will feel compelled
      to make it work by fire by force just to prove the public wrong
      instead of making it work for all the right reasons.”

      This is silly. Who cares WHY you make it work, as long as it works? It’s like saying if you strive to be successful at work, it’s wrong if you are doing it for a bigger pay raise, instead of a passion for the job. Story..story.

      Whatever Toke’s motivations to make the marriage work, as long as she succeeds, then she and Maje are doing right by their vows. Something tells me you are not married, if not you would know that the crux of the wedding vows are to stand strong in your commitment made under the eyes of God for better or for worse.

    • Chic

      January 18, 2014 at 7:18 pm

      And my marital status is none of your business but what I
      learned from my mother was that marriage is a wonderful institution
      but it is not a do or die affair if things are not working out and
      you have tried everything possible to make it work and there is no
      longer any love between the two of you then it is also okay to let
      go. She taught me that my happiness and peace of mind was
      importantly first and foremost before any “MRS” title this coming
      from a woman who has been and is still married for close to 37
      years now.

      @Me the reports from the FIRST registry no show were from
      her own friends who were there with her and had lots of insider
      information only a close friend or relative can have or frenemies
      if you like. @Nike that statement was made in the context in which
      Toke has been playing the “break up” stunt to the media and I stand
      by my thoughts that she will now feel compelled to make it work so
      as not to look stupid and not have people say “we told you so”.
      This registry marriage was allegedly emphasis on allegedly (I was
      not there I do not know if this is true but what I know is there is
      no smoke without fire) held with conditions now if those reports
      are to be believed what a way to start a marriage.

    Smh…marry at all costs. It doesn’t matter how he treats you so long as you become ‘mrs. Bubblehead’..I don’t know how we got here and I’m even more worried about the message we’re sending to the younger generation. Women where’s our self worth? We are jewels no matter what we’ve been through and we should never forget this. Like someone said, marriage is a a beginning and not an end. It’s a start of a journey you’d rather go with a friend that values you and respects you. Anything less would be selling yourself short and setting yourself up for a really strenous marriage experience. Divorce is so common place these days. I really pray I’m wrong about this couple. She deserves to be happy simply because she’s a woman like me.

    Soooooooo freaking what if it’s a publicity stunt?
    Some of the oyibo celebrities ya’ll worship do these pub stunts all the time and nobody really complains.

    There was a time I didn’t like this Toke but after watching a couple of her blogs, I just had to like her. Not because she said the smartest things or anything like that. But just because of her crazy humour and sarcasm which a lot of people are too dense to understand.

    Happy Married life Toke!!!!

    The break-up was not a public stunt. The humiliation she received that day at the registry made have to broke-up with him. He likes her for whom she is but not ready to commit. He has been pleading with Toke to reconsider their relationship and the condition Toke gave was “commit or no relationship between us again”. In order not to lose her he agreed and Toke wised up by going for a registry marriage no time to waste cos he might change his mind. Toke would have prefer a society wedding even if she cannot afford it, she has a wide range of money bag friends (eg. Tiwa, Psquare, etc) who can support her financially but she rather settle for a registry and as a result of the limited time could not invite friends or maybe she was trying to avoid be embarrassed again. I prayed the marriage work. Happy married life TOKE

      With friends like you, assuming your post contains the truth which you must have gotten by virtue of friendship to either, who needs enemies? I never ever, irrespective of what is at stake, divulge personal scoop i was entrusted with. If you really wish her well, you should desist from putting her business, good or bad, out in the public domain.
