Toyin Aimakhu is a popular Nollywood actress from Auchi, in Edo State, better known for her roles in Yoruba movies. She came into the Industry in 2003, when Bukky Wright came to Ibadan to shoot a movie.
Actress Toyin Aimakhu is the youngest child in a family of five. The actress has a National Diploma in Marketing from Iree Polytechnic, she also studied Philosophy at the University of Ibadan.
Based on the trend in the Yoruba movie clan, some people have tipped popular Yoruba actress, Toyin Aimakhu, to become the ‘next’ Funke Akindele’ in no time. But that thought will remain just a wish as far as Aimakhu is concerned.
This is simply because the lady who cut her teeth in acting in 2003, as a Philosophy undergraduate at the Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ago Iwoye, Ogun State, thinks otherwise. As far as she is concerned, she is not out to compete with the award-winning Akindele.
She says, “It is a privilege and honour to be compared with Aunty Funke Akindele because she had become a household name long before I came on board. She is also one of the few actors that have mentored me in this industry. So, it is a thing of joy to be compared to your small mum and sister.
“I can’t overthrow her because no one can overthrow me as well. People do have a right to their opinions but we all know that the truth is she is a fantastic actress any time, any day. So, she be my oga and I dey follow her for back.”
Aside from her strides in acting and a string of scandals around her in the last few years, one area where Aimakhu appears to be making headlines is in her union to fellow actor, Niyi Johnson. For instance, she recently posted a picture of her husband helping her relax her hair, thus giving the world a peep into their intimate experiences at home. see more on page2
