“Stop calling me your role model, I’m not your role model” – Toke Makinwa warns

Media personality, Toke Makinwa has asked fans to stop calling her their role model.

Toke disclosed that, she is tired of the pressure she is getting from people telling her that their daughters look up to her as their role model. She said that she has her own flaw, that she makes mistakes as a human she is and disappoints herself too, that she can’t live up to anyone’s expectations.

Read what she wrote on Twitter below;

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

Kindly share
