Every new year is always filled with wishes and promises for most people, and that was what Nigerian multi-media personality, Toke Makinwa, gave us in her teaser video released on Instagram on her birthday, 3rd of November, 2016, after starting her countdown seven days before her birthday.
The media personality who has gone through brokenness, betrayal, confusion in her quest for more and media backlash from different media and frenemies, has shown the world how to turn messes to a message as she put together all she has been through in a video shot by award-winning director, Kemi Adetiba.
The video, which she called “On becoming” focuses on Toke’s trials and tribulations, showing all she has been through, and despite being broken, didn’t remain shattered but rose again like a Phoenix. According to her,
“To become, I must shed it all. To find my purpose, I must first unravel. I must die to self and be born again. Like a Phoenix rising from its ashes, I must obtain new life, where my fears exist no more, and the cloud of darkness gives way to a new light. To restoration, I must loose myself. I am becoming”
