A few months ago, Nollywood Actress Toyin Aimakhu made the news for trying to raise funds for a cancer patient.
The #SaveMayowa trended for days on different social media platforms and the Star was able to raise millions in less than 72 hours for a fan of hers.
However, the twist to this situation came when Toyin Aimakhu was accused of trying to defraud Nigerians.
And you know nobody takes scam seriously in this day and age of change.
Toyin’s brand suffered for these accusations and, her fans needed answers.
It all became stuff of Nollywood movies when the Nigerian Police became involved and several videos telling different sides of the story emerged.
Ms Aimakhu was accused of arriving at the Hospital drunk and incoherent, even after money had been raised through her brand.
Unfortunately, Mayowa died and the seemingly good deed Toyin was trying to do blew up in her face.
However, the Actress recently paid a visit to Channel TV’s Seriously Speaking hosted by TV veteran Adesua Onyenokwe where she shed light on what really went down behind the scenes.
Toyin reveals quite a lot of interesting things in this interview.
One of those things being her reluctance to help others after the Mayowa debacle.
But if her decision to keep raising funds for others in the future is to go by, it seems Toyin is still willing to always do good no matter the situation.
Adesua also talks about the best way to use PR with two PR Gurus in the next video.
PS: Would have been nice to hear these professionals speak on the best way Toyin could have handled her own situation though, since it was on the same episode and the theme was good/bad PR.
