Popular media personality and author Toke Makinwa has just achieved another milestone. Having recently survived a serious battle with fibroid, Toke Makinwa features on CNN’s African voices. An excited and emotional Toke wrote this in her wall on Instagram:
“I remember sitting up in bed a couple of years ago, watching African voices on CNN, it was Tiwa Savage’s episode and I was intrigued just watching her talk about her craft. I won’t forget in a hurry, she was in a studio and I just kept thinking to myself, one day, one day CNN will interview me too and it will be ever so unspiring. God heard me, he has taken me in such a journey that words can’t explain. Thank you Jesus, thank you.

Watching my CNN African voices feature brought tears to my eyes. Seeing my parents pictures up on n CNN made me feel tremendous joy as they left this earth before they could become.. I hope they are proud of me. Watching my journey humbled me, it is easy for us to focus on what we haven’t achieved yet without taking stock and giving ourselves credit for how far we’ve come. To everyone out there with a dream, give yourself a break, work at your goals but be in the moment always. It may not look like much is happening but look back, you are not where you started. Stay thankful for your journey and always remember someone is watching…Thank you @cnnafrica cc @cnn for putting Africa on the map… ”
Congratulations to Toke Makinwa.
