Toyin Abraham -The Rebirth Of A Star Who Fell So Low She Thought About Suicide And Took Drugs To Numb The Pain

If a modern biblical story of a second chance is to be written from Nollywood, the story of Actress Toyin Abraham will take top spot. 



Toyin’s name has been dragged through all available mud a celeb’s name should not be dragged through but she survived.

To start with, she was seen as a razz actress, a brand with no credibility and to add double icing to the cake, Toyin had a nasty marriage break up and got entangled in a messy affair with controversial filmmaker (who was later caught for alleged theft and is currently in prison).


Toyin’s inglorious journey of self destruction assumed a national proportion when she did not manage the aftermath of the project Mayowa, a charitable course, she championed to raise money for a cancer patient

Internet and general public weighed heavily against Toyin. 

According to her, she almost killed herself, she became depressed, she took to drugs, started losing brink of reality and for those who were close to Toyin as at that time, it was almost as if the end has come but life had a different plan for the Edo State born actress who grew up in Ibadan. She changed her team, changed some of her friends and most importantly; she changed some habits, one of which was taking drugs to escape the pain of the moment.


Not long afterwards, the effect of the new decision began to show, Toyin got a role in Okafor’s Law and for the first time, she became a box office actress. According to sources, Okafor’s Law has gone on to make 100million in the cinema. She has top 6 movies coming out in 2017. It was just as if God made 2017 for Toyin.


 Not only that, Toyin has worked with two multinational companies in the space of two weeks as brand influencer and to add icing to the cake, her latest movie Alakada Reloaded has become the biggest movie of 2017 within days of release.

It was a gaily Toyin that walked into Broadway TV office shortly after she received the report of Alakada all over Nigeria for the weekend. After much persuasion, she agreed for an interview and the tone quickly changed when she began to cry and acknowledged that God is truly giving her a second chance. 


She admitted that she is not yet there but constantly working and disciplining herself not to go back to her old ways. Toyin is grateful to God and her fans popularly called Toyin Titans....


Toyin Abraham says she is not taking anything for granted.
In this exclusive and no hold back interview, Toyin speaks on taking drugs, codeine, what is next and the most cherished second chance.

That ball gown is the truth but she used waist trainer and those raised shoulders to spoil the look on her.

It is well you Toyin,but why is everyone always saying they wanted to commit suicide? This life is too sweet for me to go and kill myself.I might be tired of a situation, but killing myself is not an option.

God bless her and God bless me.

Sometimes, it is not lies
I haven't seen both movies but from what I heard, alakada was sold out in all cinemas. The queue was much.

So if for instance, the movie is showing 4 times a day in one cinema. The fee is 1k. And let's say the cinema takes 100 people. That's 1000 × 100 = 100000. Then multiply by the 4 times it'd showing a day, that's 400,000. Now this is for one cinema

Add other cinemas in Lagos. At least I know of 4( leisure mall surulere, palms, ozone, ikeja mall)
Just with the 4 alone, she has made 1.6 million naira. It could be more. Because I'm sure cinemas take more than 100 people in a room at a time. This is just gross calculation

Then multiply by other cinemas outside Lagos. Abuja, Port Harcourt, ibadan and other places for just a day. Can't you see she would be making over 5m a day.

So how is 25m not a believable amount??

Thank God for his mercies upon you Toyin, continue to soar.

They are all single.The codein thing probably started with one of the raz guys before she married Niyi.she started again after the breakup.Thank God she's got a good management now cus she doesn't know how to keep her romance off media she fall in love easily and announce it to whoever cares to know
