Yesterday we asked you, Glam Squad, what you thought Toke Makinwa’s big project called ‘On Becoming’ was about. Well we finally have an answer! Toke released a video called On Becoming on her YouTube today, which was filmed by Kemi Adetiba. The video shows Toke in a dark room, holding a candle that illuminates a wall covered with crude newspaper headlines all talking about her recent split from her husband in 2015. Voice overs of various people discussing the matter play all while Toke herself ponders what it means to be a person.
The video is haunting and intense and gives us a insight into how and what Toke was feeling and going through during that time.
You can watch the video below.
