Toke Makinwa remarked that there was this one time she came 52 out of 52 students, and she tried to play smart by using tipex to clean of the 5, leaving the 2.

She revealed that her mom discovered what she did and gave her a serious whooping.

However, her mom always came to wake her up at night to encourage her to take her studies more seriously.

She noted that that experience led her to see herself better and achieve something for herself.

Her words …

“Another incident that shaped my life, I was always at the bottom of my class. There was this time we were like 52 in the class, and I came 52, and a part of me thought I was smart, and I cleaned the 5 and left the 2. I was going home to show my parents that finally, after being bottom of the class, I came second, and when they looked at the report card, they flogged me. She didn’t spare my behind because she was frustrated. I remember when I was feeling ashamed and down, this was the same woman who believed in me and would wake me in the night, telling me to read. Mummy, I know I came last in class, but today, Mummy, I launched a perfume line”.
