Television personality, Toke Makinwa, says the “Holy Spirit” inspired the title of her controversial memoir.

Makinwa’s book, On Becoming, captures her account of her relationship/marriage to Ayida, a fitness expert.

The on-air-personality on Thursday took to Instagram to explain how she conceived the book and the purpose for writing it.

She wrote: “Someone asked me why the title “On Becoming”. The Holy Spirit gave me that name. I remember thinking of a name for this project and when I got ‘On Becoming’.

“I wasn’t quite sure why or what it meant in totality but on a flight to Houston yesterday it hit me, I am a work in progress, no full stop till I’m gone.

“I am unfinished, incomplete, the story is still being written, the race is long and God has given me purpose. The last few years of my life hasn’t been the easiest but thru it all I have grown, I am becoming.

“I’ve heard people say “are you the only one to go thru tough times” and my response remains the same. – what did you do with what you went thru? How did you help someone else grow thru your struggle, the purpose is always bigger than the pain, did you learn all you have to keep it to yourself?

“It’s ok not to get the vision, it is not for everyone. I feel Empowered, I feel chosen, and again the lord has sent me on another mission.”

Makinwa is in Houston, US, to promote ‘On Becoming’.

Her estranged husband, Maje Ayida, has filed a N100m defamation suit against her.

Ayida, in the suit, says that some of the allusions she made in the book were false and that they hurt his business.
