Stop Calling Me Your Role Model – Toke Makinwa Reveals The Pressure Is Too Much!
Popular TV personality, Toke Makinwa, has urged people to stop addressing her as their role model. She said she is no one’s role model as she herself is also looking for a role model.
However, she advised her fans to be inspired but not to pressure her to be a role model adding that she loves her loud, goofy, silly and witty self too much to submit to anyone’s standard.
In her words:
“Guys I gotta get this off my chest, pls stop calling me your role model, I am no one’s 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.”
