She made this revelation via Twitter on Monday, while thanking fans for their support after recently coming under heavy criticism for being picked as the host for the new Gulder Ultimate Search.
Toke Makinwa also thanked Nigerian Breweries, the organisers of GUS, for being helpful.
The OAP tweeted;
“You guys make me cry, the amount of support has been so overwhelming, I will not disappoint you all. It’s been the darkest 10 days of my life, I got off the reunion show for BBN to hear that my big sister passed away. My family is going through so much right now guys, thank you.
“Having to work in the midst of heart wrenching pain is confusing, the Production guys and the entire NB team have been super helpful too. The show must go on so I wipe my tears between takes and focus on delivering on this job. God is still God, I guess”.
She had earlier told fans on Twitter that she was going through dark times.
“This weekend has been one of the darkest yet, I’ve had to pull myself together to work through it all. Wiping away tears as I get ready, shuffling between sets and still standing. You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only option you’ve got left,” she tweeted last week Wednesday.
