According to her,

"As you guys might have heard, there's a lot going on in the news and the little that I have, let's just hope I have it after a while.

For all the people that reached out to me, my lawyers are on it.

I don't think you have anything to worry about, that's all I'll say. It is what it is. It's going to be a very interesting year.

People are going ti have opinions regardless, so I have nothing to say about that."

This comes after the estranged husband of the popular media personality we reported hired lawyers to stop the sales and promotion of her memoir 'On Becoming'.

Ayida's legal representatives sent Toke Makinwa a “letter of demand" to stop all forms of promotional activities and also the sales of the book.

In Toke Makinwa's memoirs, Maje Ayida was scathingly portrayed and was said to have given the on-air-personality an STD. She also wrote that the fitness expert was a serial cheat and an adulterer.

The legal documents Maje's reps sent to Toke Makinwa described the book as “exaggerated fabrication.

'On Becoming' was published on Sunday, November 27, 2016 by Kachifo Limited. Maje Ayida's lawyers however said the popular book contained “defamatory words.

Maje Ayida's law firm also noted the book brought "public ridicule” on its client, and stated its client's reputation has been “assaulted, injured and damaged.

It was stated that if Toke Makinwa fails to retract her published words and apologise to Maje Ayida in three national dailies, "will result in the commencement of legal action." The letter of warning was sent to Toke Makinwa on Monday, December 23, 2016.

Toke is currently hosting a meet and greet and book signing in London.
