Popular Nigerian On-Air Personality, Toke Makinwa, has opened up on when and how she made her very first N10 million.
The media personality disclosed this on Thursday as she took to her Instagram page to share what it feels like to be a millionaire.
According to Toke, she closed a media partnership related deal in 2015 and got her first N10 million from, it saying that the feeling was great and she managed to wait till she left the presence of her business partners before she screamed.
She wrote. “I have been in business for 10 years. The Vlog this week took me back to when I first made my first 10 million naira. It was in 2015, I remember this one in particular because It was the first time I saw that many zeros in a Cheque.
“I know people usually share their first 1m but to be honest I can’t remember when I made my first 1 million naira, it was always either a couple of jobs here and there, if I put it together it’ll be a little over 1m or less but 5 years ago, while feeling like this hustle would not pay, I got 10 million naira in one day.
“The exchange rate has made that soooo little today but back then, baby girl just arrived. And it still feels like yesterday. I laugh when people see the now and judge my success, I remember how many free jobs I did, how many times I worked for exposure, how difficult hearing “No” was, those days were my days of humble beginnings and I hope that as you watch this video, you never give up.
“My tithe was the first thing I paid from it, it was also the very first time I was giving God that much money at once. I invested heavily in the brand you see today. You can watch full Vlog on my YouTube channel, link is in my bio”
