Talking about the episode on Instagram, Toke Makinwa writes:
“Mama I made it. TM made it to CNN.
“I remember sitting up in bed a couple of years ago watching African Voices on CNN, it was Tiwa Savage’s episode and I was intrigued just watching her talk about her craft.
“I won’t forget in a hurry, she was in a studio and I just kept thinking to myself, one day, one day CNN will interview me too and it will be ever so inspiring. God heard me, he has taken me on such a journey that words can’t explain. Thank you Jesus, thank you.
“Watching my CNN African Voices feature brought tears to my eyes, seeing my parents pictures up on CNN made me feel tremendous joy as they left this earth before they could become, I hope they are proud of me.
“Watching my journey humbled me, it’s easy for us to focus on what we haven’t achieved yet without taking stock and giving ourselves credit for how far we’ve come.
“To everyone out there with a dream, give yourself a break, work at your goals but be in the moment always. It may not look like much is happening but look back, you are not where you started. Stay thankful for your journey and always remember, someone is watching.
