Toyin Aimakhu reveals she was depressed, took drugs, codeine after her marriage crashed
Actress, Toyin Aimakhu who recently released her new movie titled – “Alakada Reloaded”, has finally decided to open up about a part of her life she never wanted to talk about.
The 32-year-old in a new interview with Broadway TV, spoke about all she passed through in 2016, dealing with her failed relationships, and how much her life has been shaped ever since.
From her failed marriage with Adeniyi Johnson, to the issues she faced with embattled filmmaker, Seun Egbegbe, who is currently languishing in prison following theft charges.
“I had to deal with depression and drugs,” the actress told Broadway TV. “I didn’t plan for a broken home. I didn’t plan for a broken marriage. After my marriage, I was emotionally carried away. I didn’t heal before jumping into another relationship.
“I thought I was going to heal through another relationship. I realised I actually don’t love myself and I want people around to love me. I focused on things that didn’t really matter. I chose people before me. I didn’t love myself.”
She then revealed that she was doing too much drugs and smoking. “I was involved with negative habits like drugs, smoking, codeine. All these things were empowering my negative energy.”
She went to talk about how these negative practices ruined everything good she did.
“So, I had to stop. I realised I deserved more. I decided to change my team. I decided to change my negative habits. I stopped doing a lot of bad things that brought me negative energy.”
