Toke Makinwa appreciates mother for not giving up on her

Media personality, Toke Makinwa has appreciated her mother for not giving up on her during her formative years.

The Nollywood actress rained praises on her mother for helping her attain success despite being at the bottom of her class as a child.

She stated that her mother reshaped her, recalling how she got the beating of her life for playing smart by altering her report sheet.

“Another incident that shaped my life, I was always at the bottom of my class. There was this time we were like 52 in the class, and I came 52, and a part of me thought I was smart, and I cleaned the 5 and left the 2.

“I was going home to show my parents that finally, after being bottom of the class, I came second, and when they looked at the report card, they flogged me. She didn’t spare my behind because she was frustrated.

“I remember when I was feeling ashamed and down, this was the same woman who believed in me and would wake me in the night, telling me to read. Mummy, I know I came last in class, but today, Mummy, I launched a perfume line.”

Her mother, who was present, almost broke down in tears as she expressed pride in her daughter.

“I thank God my efforts were not in vain; it’s the Lord’s doing”.
