According to media personality Toke Makinwa, certain actions are not mistakes. Instead, she views setbacks as a chance to grow.
Makinwa, who returns as the host of the second season of Showmax’s exclusive talk show, ‘The Buzz’, which is dedicated to Big Brother Naija, told Saturday Beats, “For me, it is all about doing what I have to do and in the end, it turns out alright. Even when it doesn’t turn out fine, I learn my lesson and move on, knowing that there are no mistakes in life. I believe that everything basically happens for one’s good, and one takes those experiences with one to the next level.”
Speaking on what will be different in this season of ‘The Buzz’, she said, “I love the fact that this season is very conversational, I can get guests and we can unpack moments that they were not aired, or that some people might have missed. Some unseen clips will definitely be aired and there will be discussions around the housemates and how they are moving, the dynamics of relationships and friendships, drama and gossip. Every single thing will definitely be unpacked on the show.”
She noted that she will watch BBN with a mix of excitement and seriousness, as she will also be paying attention to discussable topics from the show, noting that the drama is not the only aspect of the show that she finds most interesting.
In response to criticism from certain Nigerians, she was asked if she regretted hosting the final Guilder Ultimate Search reality TV show. She responded, “I think that for every new host on an existing show, there is always going to be a problem. BBN had the same issue when Ebuka came on board as everyone was used to a particular host. But, after a couple of seasons, we cannot do BBN without thinking about Ebuka. People have to be given their own time to adjust. I am most definitely still interested in hosting a show like that (GUS).”
