Toke Makinwa, popular media personality, has released her debut literary effort titled ‘On Becoming’.
The On-Air-Personality who shared the cover art of the new book on social media says today is the “most exciting day” of her life.
Toke noted that she never had intended to write a book, saying God directed her to put down her “journey through pain to victory”.
“At the beginning of last year (2015) when the lord told me I was going to write a book I was confused. Is it God’s voice, is it mine? How will this work? I never planned to write a book, what I’m I supposed to write. I did what I had become used to, I ran.
“Just Like Jonah; I ran. I pushed it deep down and completely let it go. And then it began, God started sending people to me. Every time someone told me they thought I should write a book, I remembered my conversation with God in January but I was still unsure.
“(Fear maybe), I felt the idea was great but deep down I was not fully convinced. Then came June and my world fell apart. My world was crushed completely and in all of the pain I heard it again.
“This time, I knew what happened to me happened for a reason. I am a city set on a hill. My life will reflect God’s glory. I have been giving a platform to share and God was going to use my pain.
“In the pain there was a message and On Becoming was conceived. On Becoming is My journey through pain to victory. It is my prayer that God does what he planned from the start with this project. I can’t wait to put “author” in my bio. I wrote a book ya’ll. I did it.”
Meanwhile, Makinwa has also announced that she would on Friday host the first ever YouTube awards in Africa.
The awards ceremony will take place in Johannesburg, South Africa.
“Super glad to announce that I will be hosting the very first YouTube awards in J’burg, South Africa. See you all soon,” said the OAP.
