Popular OAP, Toke Makinwa, is spending part of today reflecting on her current status and how she looked several years ago.
Taking part in the trending 10 years challenge, she shared photos of herself when she was still dark skinned and now, with fair skin.
In her post, she expressed delight of how far she had come, especially with her successes and her lightened skin.
She wrote:”The GLOW Up is the truth….. the journey thru the twists n turns has brought me to a place called beautiful. The down side, the confusion, the trying times of your life is all part of the plan. If you looking for a miracle, don’t look too far 😂😂😂😂 beyond 10 years challenge🤣 more like 15/17 years challenge😛#Samegirl #onbecomingmore🔥🔥🔥#IAmbecomingmore”.
Makinwa in her book “On Becoming ” which she released on November 27, 2016 revealed that she bleached her skin in order to please and impress her ex-husband, Maje Ayida, for the period they were still married.
Her post on Instagram today however suggests that her decision to bleach her skin, may not be only about her ex-husband but some inferiority feeling in her former skin.
Last year, she launched her skin care line, “Glow” which deals with lightening creams.
