Nigerian OAP, vlogger and fashion icon, Toke Makinwa has revealed the reason behind the choice of name for her controversial book, ‘On Becoming’.

The vlogger who has been on tour to African countries and beyond to promote the book in which she told her tale in the hands of her ex-husband, Maje Ayida took to her Instagram page to disclose why she chose the name.

Recall that Maje Ayida,, her ex-husband had stated that the book and its content was hurting his brand and has subsequently slammed a lawsuit against his ex-wife and OAP seeking the retraction of ‘defamatory’ and untrue contents contained in the book.

Toke Makinwa on her Instagram page wrote: “Someone asked me why the title “On Becoming”. The Holy Spirit gave me that name. I remember thinking of a name for this project and when I got “OnBecoming…” i wasn’t quite sure why or what it meant in totality but on a flight to Houston yesterday it hit me, I am a work in progress, no full stop till I’m gone. I am unfinished, incomplete, the story is still being written, the race is long and God has given me purpose. The last few years of my life hasn’t been the easiest but thru it all I have grown, I am becoming. I’ve heard people say ” are you the only one to go thru tough times” and my response remains the same. – what did you do with what you went thru? How did you help someone else grow thru your struggle, the purpose is always bigger than the pain, did you learn all you have to keep it to yourself?

It’s ok not to get the vision, it is not for everyone. I feel Empowered, I feel chosen, and again the lord has sent me on another mission. Something big is coming.. #Imusthavemyown”
