‘I have been cheated on publicly, I never saw women come out to say what he did was wrong’ – Toke Makinwa says - 4 years ago
In a recent edition of Moments girl talk, media personality Toke Makinwa, her co-hosts Bolanle and Tallula and guests, singers Toni Tones and Peeshuan, deliberated on a very interesting topic, Why Men Cheat. During the discussion, Toke said in her opinion, she feels that all men cheat and that in Africa, cheating is celebrated instead of it to be rebuked. The media personality who got separated from her estranged husband, Maje Ayida, after he got his side chic, Anita Solomon pregnant in 2015, said men who are not even cheating have been pressured to have flings outside their committed relationships. Speaking further, Toke opined that women are the cause of cheating because you find mothers who know that their sons have five girlfriends welcoming all of them without cautioning them. “Some women are the problem. Your son has four, five girlfriends. You know them, you smile in their faces.We live in a society and the culture that we have unfortunately believes that cheating is….you can’t sue a man for cheating in this country. “If the man is selling and we are not buying, he would stop. We, women, are the problem. You find a man cheat on his wife cheat on his wife and you find reasons to make excuses for why he cheated. Maybe she wasn’t sleeping with him, Maybe she wasn’t unhappy, maybe she is a witch. I have had that been said to me. I have been cheated on publicly and I never saw women come out to say you know what, what this man did was wrong. You find them say is she the only one? What’s the big deal? Guess what, your child would go through it” She also stated that cheating would be reduced if women shame their friends who date married men.
