‘People Who Say Divorce is a Sin Will Only Cry When You Get Killed’ – Toke Makinwa


Nigerian media personality Toke Makinwa has taken a dig at those who speak against divorce.

In an address to those in abusive marriages and relationships, the feisty TV star advised that people should either take a break or walk away from their relationship to avoid endangering their own life.

Toke made this known via a series of tweets on her Twitter page while reacting to the trending news of a young lady who was sentenced to death for the murder of her husband.

According to her, people who say that divorce is a sin and not part of the African tradition would only cry when one life ends prematurely in the hands of their abusive partner.

She wrote:

“They say divorce is not an option and it’s a sin, and it’s not our tradition but if you die or kill someone cos of anger, the same people that, “said”will only cry with you as you throw your life away, try separation first and if things don’t get better, choose you.

“I know some conversations are tough but they must be had, nobody is worth throwing the rest of your life in jail or even worse, a death sentence, anger is evil, choose your mental health and walk away always. It’s hard, it’s tough but one minute of anger can take away everything.”
