Toke Makinwa’s Vlog On Adulthood Is Really Pissing Nigerians Off

October 11, 2016
Adulthood doesn’t throw anybody a welcome party, it’s not beans at all. On top of all the stress that naturally comes with this dramatic phase of life, being an adult in Nigeria is another level of stress.

Usually, popular people come to share their 2 cents on how to hack this adulthood thing and that was what Toke Makinwa did in a vlog she shared in July 2016.

Somehow, a short chip from this vlog found its way to Twitter and people are losing their minds.

People were making harsh references to her ex-husband.

And Reverend Adeboye’s infamous comment on marriage

Why were the men on Twitter mad though?

People in their 20s have already started changing the world positively.

There are also many other ways to enjoy your 20s.

What she said isn’t new to a lot of people sha.

Maybe she was taken out of context.

We’re not judging, we just brought this amebo to you. What do you think about Toke Makinwa’s vlog? Share your thoughts in the comments section.
