Some People I’ve Helped Have Turned Round To Hurt Me – Toyin Abraham

A lot has been said and written about popular actress, Toyin Abraham (formerly Aimakhu). She has been widely criticised for some of her utterances and actions; yet, many also commend her for having a ‘large heart’.

In a chat with Sunday Scoop, Aimakhu says she doesn’t dwell on whatever negative things are said about her. She said, “There is nothing wrong with constructive criticism. I like it when people point out my mistakes and I’m able to correct them. However, if you criticise me just for the sake of it or to get attention, I wouldn’t pay you any mind.

 By the time you analyse issues carefully, you would realise that the so-called critics are people who don’t know you. They form their opinions based on what they see on screen or what they hear people say.


 You need to know me before you can say certain things about me. Otherwise, you would just be relying on hearsay and that is not too good. Life is too short to dwell on things that make you unhappy.

 Personally, I like to see people around me winning. Making people happy makes me happy, and I will always continue to do that. There have been times that I helped people but they later came back to hurt me but that doesn’t deter me from helping other people. I feel incredibly blessed and I will continue to do the little I can to help others.”

On how her family members react to negative reports about her, Aimakhu said, “Initially, it was tough because they were usually worried about me. But now, they have got used to it. They know who I am and they know that many of the things that are said about me are not true. To survive in this industry, one has to have a thick skin.”

However, the actress refused to comment on her purported marriage and pregnancy. “I am known as an actress and I feel that’s what we should concentrate on. Some of these things distract us from talking on what’s important. My focus is my career and that’s what I’m interested in talking about.”

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV An HIV-positive Italian man accused of intentionally infecting 30 women is set to hear the verdict today, October 27, in his trial for allegedly targeting victims for unprotected sex over a period of nearly 10 years. Under the pseudonym "Hearty Style", 33-year-old accountant Valentino Talluto seduced dozens of young women on social networks and internet dating sites, often dating several at a time. Out of 53 sexual conquests known to have taken place between 2006 -- when he discovered he was HIV positive -- and his arrest in 2015, 30 women were allegedly infected by him with the virus which damages the immune system and causes AIDS. The male companions of three of the women were also infected, as was the baby of a fourth, investigators say. Throughout the trial, which opened in March in Rome's Rebibbia prison, the women described how Talluto had wined and dined them, claiming to fa

Expect bodies in the streets of African Countries - Melinda Gates warns of the implications of Coronavirus in Africa

Melinda Gates has warned that there will be dead bodies littering the streets in African countries if the world does not act fast to curb the spread of Coronavirus. Ms Gates said this while speaking to CNN, on  the novel Coronavirus and its effects in the third world countries. She said she is worried for Africa and fears that the continent might not be able to handle the devastating effect of COVID-19. "Its going to be horrible in the developing world," she warned. “Part of  the reasons you are seeing the case numbers still do not look very bad, is because they don’t have access to many tests. “Look at what is happening in Ecuador, they are putting bodies out on the streets, you are going to see that in countries in Africa,” Mrs Gates noted. Melinda Gates, who is also co-chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation, fears things will get worst for Africa once cases peak because of poor health care systems and lack of humanitarian supports.
