Maje Ayida reportedly files N100million Lawsuit against Toke Makinwa for “On Becoming” | Proceeds to go to Four Charities



Maje Ayida

According to several reports, fitness expert Maje Ayida has filed a lawsuit against Toke Makinwa weeks after he threatened that he was going to do so if she did not cease the publicity for her tell-all memoir “On Becoming” which he claimed was defamatory.

The CableNG reports that through his legal team, Maje has initiated legal proceedings at the Lagos judicial division of the high court, Lagos state.

Maje’s lawyer, Kemi Pinheiro (SAN) of Pinheiro LP, revealed that the publishers of the memoir – Kachifo Limited – are also named in the lawsuit.

Maje is reportedly demanding N100million in the lawsuit.

He has also requested that the court donates the damages awarded him to four charities which will be nominated by him.

      Kendall!!! Gbamest!

      When Maje was strutting the streets, he forgot that Karma existed.

      Maje, you are my brother o, but Toke has finished your life patapata. You cant salvage it. Just apologize sincerely and you may get ur life back.
      She has ripped you to shreds. Pick up the pieces, and go to the little corner to ponder about your stupid actions.

      February 25, 2017 at 2:32 pm

      @le coco…You called him a “Useless” man? My God!! When does it seem to be socially accepted for women nowadays to disrespects men? We need to think about what’s causing these problems in order to fix them.I think simps are absolutely allowing women to become more disrespectful by the day.It’s unacceptable and the facts that you called him a “USELESS” man is atrocious.

      Manners,politeness and respect have gone down the drain here in this generation especially on this blog and in real life.No men conditioned these women which i find revolting.Society doesn’t teach them it’s wrong.In my community you don’t get away with this kind of disrespect.I’m worried about the rate at which young girls are gradually forgetting of giving respect to those of us regarded as the man of the house.We need to understand the existence of meaningful cultural differences in the way men are respected.Is it the effect of western civilization and culture on Africa?

      As a Real man ,i find that the ignorance,lack of motivation,disrespects and sheer amount of immaturity of this generation.Frankly astounds me.The disrespects going on as it saddens me.Anyway,Toke destroyed his self esteem,his manhood and probably has been emasculating him for years.Since she destroy his name,what do you expect? for him to be silent? and remain ruined? She has to pay.No pity.That’s how a real man thinks.She must pay every negative statement she made about him without any evidence.she destroyed his name and brand.Price she must pay for writing rubbish book.

      Excuse me ‘sir’ first of all which evidence did she not have? He had a baby with another woman or was Anita’s baby immaculate conception? He admitted it to her. We all know. I don’t know what other proof you want.
      Secondly, be alarmed all you like. If you are not ready for the fact that respect is mutual then get ready for your blood pressure pills because your alarm will ring forever. ‘She emasculated him’ ko. By sleeping with another woman he did not strip her own pride too? Abegi shift please. If you are looking for women to continue to suffer under your depravity which you justify to your amoral, wicked, selves as respect then find a time capsule and go all the way back. The world is changing, our eyes are opening and your kind has finally pushed women to the breaking point. Do you hear me??? It is YOU who created whatever monster you think is chasing you.

    Women are just turning this to male versus female fight. Look beyond the relationship and the hurt and whatever. Look beyond women power or whatever. This isn’t a case of scorned woman’s fury. It’s a case of stupidity. People have gone to jail for defamation of character even whilst telling the truth but can’t prove it. There is law!

    If I have a roommate (which is some kind of relationship too) and the roommate comes out to write a book with my name and everything we did and maybe even some lies to spice it up and even brings my friend into the writeup too, you think that’d be a good move? Make him pay spousal support, make him pay alimony or whatever but not the book! As for people saying Maje is broke, I can only laugh at that! You think Toke will date someone broke and then marry the person too? What was her work before the wedding?

    I can bet anything Toke too has her own evils. She isn’t a saint as she painted herself and this man isn’t even saying that. This is how women act spontaneously and when everything falls on them, they begin to blame the world for their woes.

    February 25, 2017 at 2:02 pm

    Maje you are pathetic. You never gave this talented soul a penny while you were together. All you gave her were STD’s and heartbreak and now you want her to feed your lazy PE teacher ass!!! Get the hell out of here. Total disgrace. if one was convinced you would even use the cash to pay for all your random children about the place, one may be even more sympathetic but we both know your baby mamas cry for child support. Please Maje get a real job and stop trying to get paid for alimony. There’s a name for men like you.

    February 25, 2017 at 2:36 pm

    Why are you guys insulting this guy. Im not saying his innocent but toke isn’t a saint. the book she wrote was published based on her own side of the story beside for a woman to stay in that knid of a relationship then she must have had her own pound of flesh which she didn’t write or may be she did but in a way to make maje look like the devil. i always say this all is fair in love and war so if maje wants to make money off of this “he mistreated me bla bla bla” then let him. All i can do is see where all of this leads to. Toke cannot tell me the purpose of writing this her once glorious relationship in a book wasn’t to make money. If she really wanted ro share her story and inspire people she could have done easily with her plenty platform as a radio personality or YouTuber…. my point is when u decide to write a tell all book you must entice the readers and by doing that you must add lies or twist the truth. Toke and maje are both to blame.

  17. Go Maje

    February 25, 2017 at 3:12 pm

    I hope Maje wins this case. While I agree that most men are badly behaved and need to change, Toke is spinning this knowledge to feed her low self esteemed, narcissistic self, a guy didn’t like you, stood you up twice and you think marriage can change him? In her book, the need to ruin Maje and jealousy she feels for Anita is obvious. One good thing though, at least 4 charities may get 25 million Naira, that’s the amount TTT is denying his family for

    Excellent Maje. Very glad you chose this route.

    That’s exactly what I wanted you to do.
    Sue her ass and give all proceeds to charity.

    Anita you are next. Sue her too. You are a educated well trained lawyer. You know the law. Tell your story too.

    Lesson to all don’t go writing some one sided story book to make profit about love gone bad and boldly using people’s real names. With worse broken hearts endured by all in this world if everyone wrote a book and put their ex name like that accusing such.

    Superficial vain Toke sell all them weaves and designer wear and give to the poor. And please don’t be mentioning God and putting quotes on your IG page now, God did not tell you to be so vindictive (he said the battle was his if your story was true yet you decided the battle was yours rather) besides your matter still dey ground with God cos you were fucking the man for ten years and were not even married to him yet. So spare us with your God quotes and IG ho poses

    Maje I am waiting for your own version. I promise yours will sell ten times more. Advice men and women both on what you did, did not do, your regrets and How you rose above it all. Tis about time wrote a self help motivational book. Tell your side and let’s make our final judgment

    There is always three sides to a story. And no I choose not to only listen to Tokes side cos I am not a star struck stupid ignorant fool like most blinded by bullshit.

    These shallow thinking about baby mama proof is different from other grounds for libel. If any fact or statement published in that book is not true, it is in itself a libelous statement For instance, if Toke is not unable to prove the existence of or the making of a sex tape it would amount to libel. Even if it is in existence and Maje proves that it was actually Toke’s idea, then libel would be grounded. Ditto the issues of STDs. These are to be proved or disproved by the standard of evidence admissible in law.

    Toke should have done this whole revenge rebirth becoming thingy keeping in mind legal stuff like this. U think u can just write a book bringing someone else’s privacy to the public without negotiations and terms? Even if she had lawyers in the process (which I doubt by the way), they should go back to law school. Hope Toke gets served to be honest. People need to be aware of their actions in public irrespective of what happens in private.

      how stupid do you think toke is? the girl likes money… do you think she wont do her due dilligence.. this is not defamation… it is only defamation if she isnt telling the truth… the man cheated.. he admitted it… nd he had two kids out of wedlock.. the most important of the evidence being anitas baby… how old is he? how old is tokes marriage.. it doesnt take a genius….

      the man is jst being delusional.. he wont win… nd the whole charity talk is just him trying to garner sympathy.. nobody cares.. for all u knw it is probably charities tht he set up by himself.. smdh.. this man has gotten fame from toke.. he shld take tht as his compensation nd sit down

    This guy is a desperado. Toke Makinwa narrated her own version of what transpired between the two of you. This moron wants to get paid for her story? No court of Law, even in this corruption ridden Nigeria will grant you a judgment like that. What a bloody looser. Maje Ayida your mother must have forgotten to tell you about not counting your chicks before it hatches. you are not going to get a dime\ kobo from Toke Makinwa. The only way you can cash in on what transpired in your relationship with Toke Makinwa is for you to write your own book. What a certified looser you are Maje Ayida. A word is enough for the wise. I ‘ m just saying.

    Quick question: didnt Maje also get someone pregnant during thier many years of dating?? because from all i read Relationship Maje = Married Maje, same! same!!. I mean If Maje is as horrible as she says, dude needed help not marriage not to talk of a tell all book after the ticking time bomb of a marriage obviously exploded!!!! I can never understand how they even decided the best thing to do was to get married!! The word marriage had no business coming up in a relationship thats described in her book!!! It was clear as night and day!! Its like going to Uni when you never pass junior Waec sef!!! I just worry a bit for Toke that even 1 untrue statement in her book could discredit her entire book and possibly cost her the case, thatl be more salt to injury. i can only wish them the best with further putting thier business out there rather than go for therapy and actually move on already.

    When will all this male bashing stop? Despite whatever happened in his previous relationship she has no right to publish intimate details about their relationship without his consent. Cashing off it to make matters even worse.

    All the money in the world cannot buy her peace. Behind all the makeups weaves and red bottom screams a troubled soul who desperately needs help from a therapist because Her low self esteem still exudes. Her issues are deeper than just Maje and if she doesn’t deal with it she’ll end up like hale berry (the pretty one whom the whole world knows is kuku upstairs.

      Explain your rationale behind this? I am keen to understand the legal grounds under which he is filing against her. Definitely, such highly respected lawyers would not take on a case without grounds to do so, so no matter the court of public opinion. I am keen to understand which statutes, precedents etc they will be drawing from in this case. In my lay man’s opinion, I don’t think writing a memoir is a crime but there is always two sides to every story and then there is the truth.

    The ignorance of some Nigerian women is mind blowing! This is not a matter of if he cheated on or scorned Toke. Neither is this a matter of if he cheated on or scorned other women. It is also not a matter of morality. It is a matter of wether Toke libelled him in her book or revealed information which she was not supposed to without his consent etc etc, according to Nigerian law. It’s not an emotional or sentimental issue. If Toke or her publishing company did not go through every sentence in the book with solicitors before publishing, then they might have to pay dearly or settle out of court for an agreeable amount. It is as simple and as black and white as that!

    And here are women on this blog egging Toke on without thinking it through?! This just goes to further validate my claim that some Nigerian women give the worst advice to their fellow women

    Glad the right thing is being done, hopefully no one is overtly attached to the outcome of #win or #lose and while due process is going on, may all parties find peace, forgiveness and more so they don’t remain and keep projecting and replaying #victimhood.
    You are free to write a book, you are free to put all your dirty linen out there but you do need consent or request immunity from the parties whom you are #naming. A phone call to Ms Lewinsky may have helped Toke reconsider her #becoming a book writer, also Maje if you listen to the Ted Talk – the price of shame by Ms lewinsky you will gain some insight that you are not alone.
    We are all free to make a choice but we are never free from the consequences of our choices. Children be careful , Adults be wise, family and friends do not ginger either party into ego driven pursuit.

    At most, misappropriation of likeness (under invasion of privacy), but even with a good lawyer, that will get nowhere. Both had entanglements in each other’s lives; it’s not like she just up and decided to use him in her story. He was directly involved in the happenings! There is no defamation if all she wrote is the truth. It’s a publication of facts, not opinion – that she chose to put it in novel format is her prerogative. She could easily have just posted the entire excerpt on FB or on the Internet for all to see. She was wise and decided to make some money off of it. She did not need to get permission to write about her own life and about those she encountered in one way or another as she lived it. Otherwise, there will be nothing like defamation. He has the burden of proof to show that Toke was negligent but since he is a public figure (at least I think he is), then he needs to show “actual malice” on Toke’s part. It’s a high bar to show that she lied because it’s not as if we are privy to what was going on behind closed doors; the evidence will have to be highly circumstantial and I think the two pregnancies out of wedlock are glaringly enough. No lawyer in his/her sensible mind should take this one. Maje’s chances are very slim.
