Toyin Aimakhu: When Men Cheat and Abuse Women We All Come Out and Scream, Why Is It Then Wrong to Sing Their Praises When They Treat Us Right?



Toyin Aimakhu (3)Nollywood actress Toyin Aimakhu is not one to hide her love for her husband, Adeniyi Johnson.

Several times the actress has used her Instagram page as a medium of pouring praises on her husband and appreciating him for different things – from gifts to winning an award.

A few people have however critised her public display of affection and this afternoon Toyin Aimakhu shared a message for those who have a thing against her appreciating her husband.

She wrote:

To all friends and fans, i’ll like to start these piece by saying marriage is king in Africa. When men cheat and abuse women we all come out and scream, why is then wrong to sing their praises when they treat us right?… a lot of marital problems and issues are as a result of not appreciating each other. Mind you our choices differs, but nevertheless they are our head and should be cater for and treated right. When your man treats you right people will say you’ve jazzed him, or that he is using you… with such conclusions won’t your man be afraid of treating you right? If u feel living with a man is bad have you taken your time to think that some female friends are worse! Why do you have evil resentments against men? Let’s stop discouraging young ladies out there who are aspiring to be married let them know there are two ways to life, it’s not only when molested that we should come out and speak….Let’s learn to see our men differently and learn to appreciate them….. my name is Toyin Aimakhu johnson… I love my husband he’s my small god!!!

    I don’t completely agree with her views about marriage, but she does have a point about it making sense to praise them when they are good to you.. Plus, is it not her own social media page? Why people gotta be so mad? *in Igbo teacher accent*

      She got my attention because she is constantly in my face with her bulls-t. I am even mad at myself for acknowledging her but I just could not take one more stupid comment from her. We are all happily married, but we keep our marriages private. She really needs to shut it.

      Cos you decided not to advertise your marital affairs doesn’t mean someone else cannot. Hence the reason why it is her life and not yours. Keep yours private and let her talk about hers to the world. She definitely has her reasons. You either ignore her or SHUT IT and keep your bitterness to your MATRIMONIAL HOME.

      March 2, 2015 at 11:31 am

      I totally agree!! She really needs to SHUT IT! I’m happy her marriage is working out despite the ups and downs (don’t we all have em!) but all i read about her these days are My husby this, My tin God that!! E don do. Write about your bra and pant for a change Toyin.

    Toyin#sighs. The way you’re clapping back @ people these days… I’m forced to think that you’re a chorister.
    Your making your business our business, so don’t get all fired up when you have few heated replies.
    Honest comments nowadays are often mistaken to be ‘hatred from hater’.
    Be careful, few things you should know about flaunting your relationship on social media is that it will come back to haunt you when it fails. This you alreafy know but you think yours is different than the others before you. People wont forgive easily as your making your life to seem like heaven on paradise. People will gloat & laugh. They will mock and taunt you. People will make unnecessary references to your old posts, if you like you can delete it, thank heavens! bellanaija is there, stuffs like that are there for eternity.
    You will hate the Internet and your ‘instagram’ diary.
    As you worship your small god daily, pray alongside that your love and marriage last forever..♡
    Keep your tips and tricks on how to make marriage last.. you may need it very soon.

    My Dear there is nothing wrong in singing his praises for treating you right like he is supposed to. There is also nothing wrong in keeping your private life private. Maybe some information are better shared with family and intimate friends as opposed to strangers on social media to get attention. Keep talking mama, when things go left as the often do with relationships like this that are played out in public, people will…..

    She’s such a LIAR and I’m beginning to believe she’s delusional. Treat u right ke? I wonder what she understands by been treated right. Only ppl with miserable marriages come to social media to paint what they wish their marriage was like. I know ds gal so I knw what I’m saying. Just keep quiet, as sum1 suggested earlier “write a book”. Mayb in yoruba cos I knw Its impossible in english!!

    There is nothing bad in praising your husband, but people are wicked this days that you need to watch what you say,there a lot of happy marriages out there but they dnt talk too much,things kept secret are of more values than the open ones, pray hard for God to bless you with the fruits of the womb so that your joy will be full enjoy your love

    Being treated well by “my” man is an expectation. It’s my right to be treated right and his too. So no news there. However if these minimum expectations are not met…. That’s news.

    February 28, 2015 at 6:47 pm

    Lmao…Toyin will not kill me o. Someone needs to shut all her social media accounts down. But I can’t even judge her….at least she’s constantly making movies and keeping her fans entertained. She’s just a talkative naa ni…there’s nothing we can say or do to dissuade her from yapping her mouth…at least not until her small god says it’s enough…hehehe.

    p.s. IMHO i believe all this praise and worship sessions stem from the fact that Toyin married a ‘regular’ guy; he’s not a chief, an Alhaji or some ‘Belgium-based’ millionaire…and she’s doing what (she’s been advised and wired to think) needs to be done to keep him. A typical Yoruba man would have self-esteem issues with a woman as marginally successful/popular as Toyin, so there is the need for her to constantly reassure him as her head and all that. Pele o Toyin, you have buy market… this can only go on for so long before you tire out.

      March 1, 2015 at 12:21 am

      You were making sense until you said a typical youruba man..??actually it’s a black man issue. .does Bobby Brown ring a bell??…100% sure he’s not youruba!!

    • Carliforniabawlar

      March 1, 2015 at 1:36 am

      So it would have made you feel better if I included all black men?? Hian!! I for kukuma speak for all men (white, yellow and blue) and top it off with butch lesbians while I’m at it
      I am Yoruba, hence I speak for the culture I have been exposed to. I was already uncomfortable making generalizations about Yoruba men, which is why I made sure to use the word TYPICAL so as to leave the exceptional ones out.
      Now to try to ‘typicalize’ all black men? mbanu…my hand is not there.
      Anywhoozies, I’m glad I made some sense to you until I decided not to speak of something I wasn’t sure….like that even makes any sense…**shrugs**

      Dear Carliforniabawlar if only you know how many fights you and I have had in my end ehn! But on this one we are in sync! Ose iya mi!!!

      The fact that Toyin constantly entertains just gives her the pass for me. Plus she put it on her instagram page, she did not call Bellanaija to publish her post, they posted it because she is relevant enough to be published. And come to think Toyin actually spelt her words correctly this time, so what if she messed up the lexis and structure a bit, ehen?! Big deal?! (Yes I am being biased and I know). Ejo abeg please biko leave Toyin alone. She said her husband is her mini god (her husband, not yours) you don’t have to agree with her, if you don’t like her rants skip the story next time. #ToyinAimakuForTheMoney! (Please don’t ask what money)

      Shame you didn’t quantify your being Youruba in the first place…and TYPICAL can be derogatory much dependent on the context…you could have said coming from my background some Yoruba men..Typical is actually tarring them all with the same brush considering the flow of your language!!

Did bellanaija write you a threatening letter saying if you don’t read they will shoot you??? If not, then please how were you forced to delve in to this story?. Your mouth like eye blinding grammar, mschew such katikati. Biko shift!

    this lady is soo annoying.. there is nothing rong with appreciating ur husband but my dear if ur husband was reciprocating ths love on social media bellanaija wld hv posted.. why all this noise? this ur husband that will abuse u later then u will start giving rubbish interviews on ur failed marriage.. please my dear, u seem too dependant on ur man and clingy at that.. u r one of those women that believe marriage is the ultimate goal…. infact I don tire.. these blogs shld stop making this woman famous because truthfully, I had no idea hu she was before bellanaija

    February 28, 2015 at 7:50 pm

    There’s nothing wrong with her praising her husband. All these hate comments and fake advice) tho! If she likes she can praisie her husband every blessed day on social media. We all have an option to ignore her page or refuse to click on the story. So if you took the time to open the story, read and comment, just walk! Walk ! And walk ! What is wrong with people? I think we all need to understand individual preferences and respect same. The fact that you believe private matters like someone flaunting her love for her husband should be kept out of public eye doesn’t mean everyone must accept and follow your belief.
    Yeah it might get a little too much but really it’s her account and she can post whatever she likes on it.

    I mean fine share what you want with social media but you cant cry when something goes wrong in your marriage. Certain things need to be kept off the internet.
    Thats why i love kerry washington. We dont know shit about her marriage or have even seen her baby. she has one of the highest rated shows on tv but yet she still keeps her sanity. 101 guide to being a celebrity. No idiot can ever come and post some random rumor on a magazine because they don’t know shit and will never know shit.
    You put your life out you get no privacy. You cant cry when you don’t get because that’s how you wanted it. 🙂

    God please can you bring back the life we had before social media craze, no wonder our parents and even grand parents lasted in marriage and are still lasting, they celebrate 45-50 years anniversary unlike now that people hardly celebrate 5 yrs of their marriage before it parks up. our parents didn’t have to show case the gorge wrapper their hubby bought for them nor did they have to prove to people how nicely they were being treated, no competition of any kind, but now see what social media is causing us, Toyin, nobody said you should not appreciate your small god, we simply meant that certain thing be kept off internet. can you stop already.

Baby popping Kourtney, divorced Khloe, 3rd time married Kim, disturbed Rob, transgender-ed Bruce, alcoholic Scott and i can go on. For sure living you life on social media can earn you the popularity and the money and that is where it all stops. This Toyin never learns a lesson. Now i am sure the reason for the other split up is beacuse he cheated. Who gets over the hurt of being cheated on in 4 weeks.
    Dear Toyin Dakore is married, Omotola is Married, Stephanie Linus is married, Kerry Washington is married, Joke Silva is married please learn their style.

    All the negativity going on here is disturbing. See people already prophesying the doom of her marriage just because she doesn’t adhere to your popular rule of privacy. This is a very bad trend, it makes some come off as bitter, but what about?
    We can hold on to things too tightly, if it doesn’t work eventually? At least she gave it her best shot and made wonderful memories. Why should she be afraid of living her love life the way she deems fit just because something could go wrong? Some people are more predisposed to PDA and it doesn’t make the rest of us private wagon better than them or more likely to spend forever with our spouses than they are.
    Ndo, it won’t kill to be happy for people once in a while or at least keep it moving with the predictions of the end of her marriage. She didn’t beg/pay bella to post stuff from her insta. Its her own insta people
