Nigerian OAP, Toke Makinwa, has shared her views on how marriage is seen in the Nigerian society. Toke said in most cases, Nigerian men feel intimidated by working class women.

According to Toke, the society seems to force ladies to rush into marriage, which sometimes results into breakups.

In her Vlog, Toke said, “Marriage is how you are seen in the society; marriage is how you are duly respected. If you are not married, there is no hope for you. 30 is knocking at the door. If you have crossed 30 even worse, you need tips.”

She added, “You have to make a truce; You either chose to follow your career or you chose to get married. You cannot do the two at the same time, it cannot work. They believe that when a woman is career driven he is a threat to men, men will not approach you.

"Therefore, you are approaching 45 if not 50 and you are single, forget career. Career is not going to keep the night warm for you when you are 40. Career is not going to keep you company when you are going to need it. Career is not going to sleep with you.”
