I woke up this morning to find a freelance video some random dude took of Toyin Aimakhu, in the hospital when the whole “#SaveMayowa drama” started.
The video started with a rather erratic Toyin Aimakhu, shouting and ranting on the corridors of LUTH that morning. The author of the video said it was about 9am and clearly Ms Aimakhu appeared drunk!
She was shouting and muttering stuff and other guests were trying to calm her down, while others (like the author of the video), were busy getting her on tape. After a while, the authorities of LUTH had to walk her out of the Hospital, when she called her partner, Linda Ikeji. Actually, any reasonable and sensible mind would have called on the police, if they felt aggrieved but no way! Toyin wasn’t going to have any of that!! She felt that the best move was to call Linda Ikeji, and lets have a scandal on our hands! Lets humiliate the poor family for daring to save their daughter!
There was no video of Linda Ikeji anywhere near LUTH, when she authoritatively wrote this,”Mayowa had reached stage 4 and doctors, unfortunately, already told her family she won’t survive it and had advised them to take her home. Her family instead used her situation to raise money from Nigerians”! Lawd!!! How could she jump to such a horrible conclusion without even visiting the Hospital, without even seeing the sick girl for herself! She simply jumped on the story like a bitch on heat!! This is what gives bloggers a bad name in Nigeria!
To show you how “unprofessional” and “irresponsible”, Linda Ikeji is fast turning out to be, she has deleted the damning material from her blog! Without even writing as much as an apology or a retraction to the story!! Jeez, now that is exactly how to call a dog a bad name just to get it hanged, then you run away!! No explanation, no apologies for a terrible accusation, you just delete the stuff and chill! Way to go girl, you are fast making a name for yourself!
A person is battling for her life and you come out with an unconfirmed story, accusing her family of theft, then when it goes south, you split and leave Nigerians to deal with the mess! Kudos girl.

And for Toyin, you started up by doing something noble, then somewhere along the line, you felt used. Here is my advise for you, “If you can’t help a bad situation, then don’t get involved, the worst thing you can do is to make a bad situation worse. In other words, don’t bother doing anything good, if you know you are going to ruin it all in the end! And on a personal note, please go easy on the “Bleaching creams” and the booze! Conclusively, if you feel you are being used, call the police, not Linda Ikeji, the Nigerian Police have their service numbers posted on pretty much everywhere these days”
And for the general Nigerian populace, God forbid you are ever in a position where you need medical attention and you cannot afford it, and you need to solicit for funds. Never, I repeat Never ever, attempt to get Toyin Aimakhu involved, because it might bite your behind someday! Apparently, events like this are why Nigerians hate to beg!
To Mayowa, we are praying for you to get well soon.
