“We haven’t done our Traditional &White Wedding Because
There is no Money” – Actress Toyin Aimakhu Drops Bombshell The Popular Nollywood Actress had a chat
with YNaija and she talked about her husband, who she refers to as ‘my small god’.
What has changed since you got married?
“Dressing, I can’t wear those skimpy outfits anymore moreover the way I talk to people has changed too. I can no longer make decisions on my own and I can’t use my BlackBerry anymore, that’s the most painful one. My husband doesn’t like me using It because it distracts me and I have to obey him because he is my small god”
Pregnancy before Marriage?
I wasn’t pregnant before my wedding; my tummy was just big in the pictures because of too much carbohydrate. I wasn’t doing any form of exercise, I was too lazy but I am
slimmer and prettier now.
We haven’t done our traditional and white wedding because there is no money. Of course when money comes, we will do it. Many fans believe I pretend that I am wealthy but I am not, in fact I wish Daddy Mike Adenuga or Otedola would call me now and say my daughter, I heard you mentioned my name in your Alakada movie, come and take N10million. I will immediately go and buy a house in Banana Island, buy G-wagon and Range Rover and do a lot of shopping…lol, the truth is I don’t have money, we are
struggling but we are not begging sha, and that is what matters, at least we live in a flat and we have a car, we try.”
On the controversy of being paid N1.5million
to emcee a friend’s wedding recently?
I wasn’t paid N1.5million for any MC job. The 1.5M tag on Instagram was the price of the ring, it was an exclusive diamond ring and I haven’t seen such before, I don’t know why bloggers will assume I was paid such, none of them bothered to confirm it from me. Sometimes when you are bored, you know you just write stuffs on social media but
these bloggers blow it out of proportion. And even if I was paid N1.5million, why will I come on internet to let people know I was paid so. Olorun Maje (God forbid), I don’t
have such upbringing about showing off my wealth to oppress others, when some don’t even have food to eat. Yet you see some celebs showing off almost 30 cars. That is why I love comedian AY and his wife, Mabel, Jesus Christ their house is awesome and out of this world, even 2Face’s house nko? Those are rich people yet they don’t come online to brag about their wealth or fake bags and shoes. Imagine someone buying a $3000 shoe, I dey mad.
Flaunting wealth on social media?
Most times it is fans that cause it; they make many celebs lie on social media. They expect too much, forgetting that we are humans too. Imagine if I buy a 3k shoe for instance and I wear it to an event once, fans expect me not
to wear it again, they will be like “is that not the shoe she wore last week” so celebrities have to please the fans, I don’t let it affect me though. if I should buy such a shoe, I will still wear it for 7 months” Most expensive item in your wardrobe? The most expensive item in my wardrobe is
nothing. My phone is the only expensive thing I have and it is even cheap sef. My clothes, shoes and bags are China or UK –primark new look – which I get from the Island.
