She added by saying that she is not perfect and won’t live to anybody’s expectation.



Toke Makinwa who is a popular Nigerian OAP, has urged her fans not to see her as their role model as she would at some point disappoint them.

According to Makinwa, she expressed her weariness on the pressure she’s getting from people who continue to tell her that their children see her as their role model.

She added by saying that she is not perfect and won’t live to anybody’s expectation.

She wrote on Twitter saying, “Guys I gotta get this off my chest, pls stop calling me your role model, I am no ones role model, me sef I am looking for “role model”. The pressure of my kids love you and you are their role model has to stop. Raise your kids to see themselves as a work in progress.

“If a part of my life inspires you, by all means use it as a guideline to be better, pls I am also trying out this thing called life. I am not perfect, I will disappoint you with no apologies. I disappoint myself too, the difference is I get up and move on.

“I accept my flaws all, I am under no pressure to fit into your ideal of what perfection looks like, I am figuring me out too. Pls be inspired but don’t pressure me to be a “role model”, I love my loud, goofy, silly and witty self too much to submit to your standard.

“To summarize all I’ve said, I will still fuck up plenty, I will make not so smart decisions, I’m willing to live and learn and not put up a font of perfection. Stop with the pressure, I won’t live up to your expectations and I’m at peace on my pace Victory hand.”
