Due to some circumstances, not every Christmas celebration is a joyful one. However people often put up an appearance of happiness so as not to spoil the day for everyone else.
For celebrities, it is even harder to have to deal with Christmas when they are not in the mood for it because a lot of their fans would be let down.
Popular media personality, Toke Makinwa, took to her Instagram page to encourage her fans on Christmas. She did this while sharing a Christmas photo from three years ago as she revealed that it was a very tough day for her but she had to put up appearances.
She wrote: “This picture was taken 3 years ago just in time for Christmas, my heart was broken, I was lonely (spent the entire Christmas Day in bed actually), I wasn’t going to even take the picture but my team insisted and it was a tough shoot. I think I broke down many times.

“See, I had only just started a new journey and boy was it tough, it was one of the coldest Christmas I have had yet. Today I woke up and smiled deeply, for some reason I saw this pic and decided to post it as a reminder that joy does come in the morning.
“This may be a lonely Christmas for you, perhaps your heart might be broken, you may be hungry, sad, feeling helpless and you may not want to even get up and face the world. Joy does come in the morning. It may be dark now but it’ll definitely give way to light. A lot has changed since then, I’m truly becoming more and it’s another Christmas. I am so thankful I found this picture to remind me of my journey, it’s been one of grace and grace alone.
“Merry Christmas to you. Jesus is the reason for the season so I wish you Joy, I wish you light, healing, love and all that the good Lord gives. You may not feel it now but I promise you’ll look back on this Christmas and have reasons to smile. ❤️❤️❤️”
Recall that Toke has had a tough relationship life especially after her marriage with her former husband, Maje Ayida, failed after series of infidelity issues.
She has however proven to be a strong woman seeing as she encourages her fans from time to time.
