Media personality Ariyike Akinbobola shares the story of a woman she met in London who is on her third marriage. The woman believes she would have still been on her first marriage if she hadn’t listened to the people that wrongly advised her to leave her first husband.

Ariyike says ‘When it comes to your marriage or relationship, stop taking decisions based on what people tell you to do, make sensible decisions that will make you happy. Some of these People advising you to leave your man/woman are in worse relationships.’

      Please don’t try to start something. Just take it for what it is and don’t look for drama where there is none. FYI Toke was at her book reading, which shows she supports her. Just take what she’s saying and move along. Don’t bring negativity to it.

      And no, I do not know Ariyike oersonally.

      Well, I do know Ariyike and I know she’s got nothing but sincere love for Toke. And yes, Toke was at her book reading and very willing to support Ariyike. Please Kemi don’t start something where there isn’t anything. Ariyike is doing her thing, she may need to polish her craft but aren’t we all works in progress?

      Abeg lemme keep walking and mind my own business. #okbye.

      Yeah? Whatever, we all know she is talking about Toke. People can pretend to be your friend and invite you to their parties, but are secretly jealous and envious of your success. Everybody is now doing their own vlog to beat Toke out of it. In that arena she is like Genevieve Nnaji of the movie industry, you can’t compete as Stephanie Linus and Omotala Jolade tried so hard to do but failed. Leave that vlog talking area Toke has taken it.

      Abeg, Arike, Arykie or whatever you call yourself, mind your business and keep to your side of the waters, leave Toke alone to rock her world, stop secretly hating her and throwing cheap punches at her. Could you guys just stop already, that poor lady Toke Makinwa is going through so much, and not only is she an orphan that had managed to make something of her life, she is still pushing and inspiring others like her.

      And to Toke, you yourself stop promoting fornication, metcheww. You could have been my ace, its just your stance on free sex that is my beef with you (no wonder your hubby did it to you so you can feel how it tastes to be the one on the wrong side of the game), but still you are alright.

    After listening to this, I’m not sure i’d listen to any of your Vlogs again. Well….nice one but you’re on camera Ma. Watch your tenses . Your facial expressions are kind of like what Toke does. Are you trying to follow her footsteps or not?

    Okay, on a second note,…You actually were imitating Toke especially when you said “some girls who their husbands’ are beating them…..they’ll be like…better walk out of that marriage…meanwhile they are beating them everyday”

      but isn’t that how alot of Nigerian girls talk? especially yoruba ladies. I even talk like that which doesn’t necessarily mean she’s copying someone.

    Ariyike is Ariyike and Toke is Toke. Some people should stop saying she copies Toke.
    At Kemi, I don’t think she is taking a swipe at Toke as u insinuated.
    Thanks Ariyike for this,I enjoyed and garned some knowledge from it.

    Allow your instincts advise you.
    Never ever underestimate the power of your instincts,listen to both good and bad advice but always go with your instincts.

    Hello Dear,
    everyone try to be a over smart because you ask any kind of advice he or she give you full idea but actually he or she need some help from others . so go ahead with your own ideas.

    Awesome advice. It’s quite surprising the amount of influence friends and family have. This is why people should be talking about their issues with each other instead of a third party! 🙂
