This exclusive interview was recorded in 2010 and edited in 2013 but it was never aired. Back then, Ariyike was working as a Lawyer and she was trying to produce her own TV show but she had no knowledge about Production (hence the bad audio) so she decided to hire a camera crew and interview a few People to see what it felt like to be in front of the Cameras.
Toke Makinwa was already working on radio so she was one the friends that came to support her. This happened about 5 years ago (Shortly after she(Ariyike) gave birth to her 2nd Child) before they both got their TV gigs. While Toke and Ariyike were trying to get on TV in Nigeria, they went for several auditions together, got many NOs, they were picked for some shows that never kicked off and were meant to host/produce a show together with two other Ladies which also never kicked off but they never gave up.
In fact, after every audition, they would always say ‘THIS HUSTLE’, That was their slogan. Guys, nothing comes easy. Life is filled with ups and downs, you have to learn to remain positive in all that you do. If you have a dream, NEVER GIVE UP. Today, Ariyike dedicates her vlog day to the amazing Toke Makinwa.
“This hardworking babe is so full of life, there’s never a dull moment whenever Toke is around. When you meet her, you will love her”. They attended the same Primary school, Federal Home Science Association Primary School, Ikoyi and both graduated from the University of Lagos. “Thank you Toke for constantly supporting all that I do, you are a star, keep shining, Love you loads”.
In this interview, Toke talks about how she deals with negative radio callers and the first thing she does before she goes on air. Enjoy!
