Popular on-air-personality and actress, Toke Makinwa has revealed that she lost her elder sister after the just concluded Big Brother Naija season 6 edition, in which she was one of the hosts.
The fashionista disclosed this via her Twitter handle on Monday, while appreciating her fans for their support.
This is coming after getting a backlash for being chosen as the new Gulder Ultimate search anchor.
“You guys make me cry, the amount of support has been so overwhelming, I will not disappoint you all. It’s been the darkest 10 days of my life, I got off the reunion show for BBN to hear that my big sister passed away. My family is going through so much right now guys, thank you,” she tweeted.
Makinwa while thanking the Nigerian Breweries, who are the organizers of GUS, for being helpful, the OAP added that despite her sorrow, she had to move ahead with the new task before her.
“Having to work in the midst of heart wrenching pain is confusing, the Production guys and the entire NB team have been super helpful too. The show must go on so I wipe my tears between takes and focus on delivering on this job. God is still God, I guess,” she tweeted.
The blogger who didn’t give details of what happened had earlier told her fans on Twitter that she was going through dark times.
“This weekend has been one of the darkest; yet, I’ve had to pull myself together to work through it all. Wiping away tears as I get ready, shuffling between sets and still standing. You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only option you’ve got left,” she tweeted.
