Controversial on-air personality Toke Makinwa has revealed that she no longer sees cheating as an absolute deal-breaker as she did in her younger years.

Toke Makinwa said, “I think a lot of women need to reject the stigma. If I cheat, it’s okay for the man to do the same to me.

“I feel like I have gotten to a place in my life where you can’t shame the shameless. If I cheat tomorrow and you want to leave, I will respect you. If you want to stay, don’t use it to taunt me because I have won the crown of a cheater.

“If I’m going to be very honest, cheating is no longer a deal-breaker for me. It used to be; when I was younger, I would never have been able to say these. I would have said if he cheat’s, I’m putting back in the street.

Toke further explained that, with age, she recognizes the possibility for both men and women to cheat, emphasizing the role of self-restraint in preventing infidelity.

“As I grew older, I realized men cheat, women cheat. It’s easier for a woman to cheat, it’s self restraint that stops us. The reason why I’m not quick to put you out is I might be the first person to cheat on you. Forgive me as I have forgiven you.”

Toke expressed a more nuanced view, stating that if she were to cheat, she would respect her partner’s decision to stay or leave, and she would not use it as a means of taunting. She acknowledged that forgiveness plays a crucial role, as she might be the first to make such a mistake.
