Nigerian actress and on-air personality toke Makinwa took to her Twitter page to explain why women need to make their own money while praying for a man.
Toke started with a tweet asking her followers if they know her husband, they should tell him congratulations ahead for her, saying her kids are fortunate because God took time to mold her. She wrote:
“The plans God shared with me about my life…. if you know my husband, tell him Congratulations ahead, he is so lucky and blessed that God saved the best for him, My kids too are extremely lucky because God took the time to mold me, break me, fix me and make me whole again.”
Early hours of yesterday, December 28, she advised ladies praying for a man to have their own money to avoid insults.
“Ladies..most especially young ladies pls as you are praying for a man that has his shit together, whatever that means to you. (Money,security,etc), pls pray for your pocket, too, get your own shit in order too. No one wants a liability. It gets some kind of insult you want to avoid.”
Toke, who was once married, explained how women should not be dependent on their husband at all time, but should also do and buy stuff, even properties for themselves. She also stated that those who married rich men are not having it easy with their husbands, but they say what they are going through.

“A lot of women that supposedly married rich won’t tell you how hard it is when you are solely dependent on your partner for everything, a lot of them are stuck accepting BS. See everyone wants to enjoy but it’s nice when you bring value, when your partner knows that you get too.”
“Abeg ladies start saving too, buy shares too, buy property if it’s your thing, stand solid or at least try, a man with money is the icing on the cake and not the entire dough.”
“It’s been long we gisted, been so occupied but the kind of stories I hear that still happen in 20/20 just shows that everyone is looking for a better life, no one wants liability anymore and even those inside not all that glitters is gold.”
“At least if you enter husband house with small savings, your own car, your own small business however little you are making or more, you can get mouth to talk if shit goes down, a lot of our mothers did not learn financial freedom and many paid dearly some r still paying for it.”
“I’m not saying don’t aspire to marry rich o, cos everyone is aspiring to come up. Even the guys sef these days are looking to marry up so pls aspire for better but make sure you level up too. Her that degree, take that course, start that business, e get why o”
