Toke Makinwa, TV personality and vlogger, has incited a heated argument on the Nigerian Twittersphere following her comments on marriage.


The vlogger had taken to social media to advise couples not to “lose their peace” over their partners’ infidelity but should rather channel their energy into improving themselves.

She was speaking in reaction to a viral video of a woman publicly confronting her husband’s lover in a Lagos shopping mall.

“I think the whole marriage concept of “owning” your partner is flawed. You do not own anyone, you are not responsible for another’s action, it should not drive you mad,” she wrote.


“Two people make a choice to do life together, one person defaults on promises/vows, it is not a reflection of you, don’t lose your peace over another human being.

“In one single action, she’s made the alleged side chick an angel, the girl walked away while the woman looked hella crazy. Resist the urge to let another’s action make you crazy.


Makinwa’s flurry of tweets have since sparked off argument on Twitter, where users are registering their diverse opinions.

While a segment of users disagreed with the TV personality’s assertion, others supported her stance and also accused her critics of habitually “twisting her words”.

“There are some topics Toke Makinwa shouldn’t be addressing publicly please,” a user wrote.

Nigerians have a serious comprehension problem @tokstarr. Toke simply said ladies should work on themselves and be better people for themselves and don’t lose themselves when a man’s action is driving them crazy. The man’s action is on him, don’t blame/lose yourself. English!,” said a Twitter user.


“Aunty Toke please dear. When you are in a relationship or marriage, your actions have a direct impact on your partner, you are not only accountable to them, you owe it to them to be of your best behavior.,” another user said.

Here is what some Nigerians had to say:
