Toyin Aimakhu went from hero to villain real quick. In the space of two days, Toyin Aimakhu was praised by Nigerians and slaughtered by them in 48 hours of drama.

Yesterday, July 28 Toyin Aimakhu who had helped raise funds for Ovarian cancer patient Ahmed Mayowa Shukurat went online to make allegations that the fund raising initiative to save Mayowa's life was a scam orchestrated by her family. She said that Mayowa's family had taken the money donated and absconded.


Her allegations started a lengthy back and forth between the family of Ahmed Mayowa Shukurat and the actress. During the whole confusion Toyin Aimakhu started receiving knocks from Nigerians online. At the end of the melee, Toyin Aimakhu became the loser with the unanimous belief that the controversial actress was wrong for not investigating properly before making her allegations.
