“On Becoming” author and media personality Toke Makinwa has fired back at a former presidential aide Reno Omokri after the latter divorce shamed women.
Makinwa slammed Omokri as a clown face after he extolled late lady Maryam Babangida, a former first lady of Nigeria.
Sharing photos of Maryam, Omokri wrote:
”Maryam Babangida was one of the world’s most beautiful women ever. We need the media to project more natural beauties like Maryam, instead of force feeding youths ‘stunning’ photos of bleached divorcee slay queens, with surgically enhanced bodies!
This is a real beauty. Not useless people who corrupt the morals of our youth. From head to toe, nothing about you is real. Teaching our beautiful melanin endowed girls to hate their bodies, not knowing one hot towel can wipe away your fake beauty!”
Makinwa who had a well-publicized divorce from fitness coach Maje Ayida and has been very opened about undergoing surgery to enhance her beauty slammed Omokri for his jibe.
She wrote in response:
“Wow, at your age? Your wife and kids must be cringing for you, such an embarrassment. “Divorced” is nothing to shame anyone for, life happens. People like you are the reasons why a lot of people stay in unhealthy situations and lose their dignity and In some cases their lives.
“Enough with the divorce shaming of Anyone, I don’t see a divorced man being shamed for living his life after his failed marriage, people like that clown Clown face are probably in unhealthy marriages too. God forbid I marry a man who tweets that kind of garbage, sighhh.
“You can celebrate a version of beauty without putting another down, you don’t have to meddle in women’s business too. If you have a daughter I hope she gets the courage to never deal with a man as uncouth as you, stop with the misogyny.
“Dragging my divorced slay queen naked ass back to my holiday and waking up to the most beautiful view. In my bed and outside my room. Love and light.”
