Rhythm FM on-air personality, Toke Makinwa has confirmed the dissolution of her engagement to her fiancé of barely five months, Maje Aiyida.
Ms. Makinwa made this disclosure in an interview that has since gone viral. When asked when they intended to tie the knot, the petite presenter said, “Who said we were getting married? That’s not true”.
On the reason behind the breakup of the well celebrated engagement, she said, “I don’t know if I should be saying this but we are not together anymore. We are just not compatible.”
As both parties have decided to keep sealed lips, no one is certain what the reason behind the break up is for now.
The good times
Although Ms. Makinwa and Mr. Ayida have been an item for eight years, it was not until January this year, that rumour of their engagement became rife.
By April, it became clearer that the lovebirds would be headed for the altar after they got engaged on Thursday 12th April 2012 and had gone ahead to pick November/December date for the wedding and engagement ceremony.
Ms. Makinwa who anchors the Early Morning Drive on Rhythm 93.7 fm also confirmed in April that the best thing to have happened to her is finally settling with the man who captured her heart.
On the other hand, Mr. Aiyida who is the son of a former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Allison Ayida, broke the news of his wedding plans to close friends during a private party in April to celebrate the beginning of his life with the woman he loves dearly.
An obviously smitten Makinwa granted various interviews at the onset of her engagement to Mr. Aiyida, who is the CEO of Edenlifestyle Health Fitness, Victoria Island, Lagos.
How did he propose?
It was romantic, that’s all I’d say. Not Oprah Winfrey Show kind of romantic but maybe when I have my own talk show, we’d renew our vows on my show.
How soon are you going to walk down the aisle with your fiancé?
I’ve been planning my wedding since I was 5 and I want everything to be perfect so I’m still planning and when I’m ready I would let you know.
