New Twist: Toyin Aimakhu wanted part of Mayowa Ahmed's money but family refused

There is a totally new twist to this #SaveMayowa fund controversy. New reports have emerged that Yoruba actress Toyin Aimakhu and founder of the Lifestake Foundation, Aramide Kasumu wanted part of the over N32million raised for ovarian cancer patient Mayowa Ahmed.

According to Soliat Tobi Bolaji who was with Mayowa's sister at LUTH, all through the period that it was alleged the Ahmed family had scammed Nigerians yesterday, there some hidden truth behind the whole accusation.

See her tweets below....

There's also a video recording obtained by Abiyamo, of a brother to Mayowa Ahmed (names withheld), saying the foundation and Aimakhu were not interested in helping them for free and when they discovered that they were not going to get a penny, they resorted to blackmailing them and branding the whole thing a scam.

The conversation was in Yoruba, transcript is below:

CALLER: I heard a rumour from some unfortunate people saying that Mayowa’s case is a scam, how far, is it true? How is Mayowa feeling now, has she travelled?

Mayowa Ahmed’s brother: Are you a stranger to Mayowa?

CALLER: Of course I do know her very well.

Mayowa Ahmed’s brother: Good, those of you who know her and her familiar with her case should tell everyone that it is a lie. They (rumour mongers and accusers) are insane.


Mayowa Ahmed’s brother: Thank God you met her, or didn’t you meet her?

CALLER: Of course. I lived with her (Mayowa).

Mayowa Ahmed’s brother: And you are aware of her regular crises and all her afflictions, right?

CALLER: Of course.

Mayowa Ahmed’s brother: Why do we have to lie about the whole thing, do we (Ahmed family) look like impoverished people? Or are the accusers unfortunate people?

CALLER: Ah, it will not be well with them (the accusers and rumour mongers). When people have donated over N32 million naira.

Mayowa Ahmed’s brother: It was God that made it all possible and we did not even know that people will turn out like that. I hope you understand?

CALLER: You know the funniest part of it all? It was when I was hearing what all what Mayowa herself was saying.

Mayowa Ahmed’s brother: What did she say?

CALLER: As in, if you see the videos they uploaded with what she was saying.

Mayowa Ahmed’s brother: What did she say?

CALLER: (inaudible) I will share some of her videos with you.

Mayowa Ahmed’s brother: Hello, when did she say that?

CALLER: Hello, can you hear me?

Mayowa Ahmed’s brother: Hello, hello, hello. When did she share, when did she take the pictures?

CALLER: Both pictures and videos.

Mayowa Ahmed’s brother: What did she say in them?

CALLER: She said that people should assist her that she is going through some pains and everything and that people should come to her aid and stuffs like that.

Mayowa Ahmed’s brother: Ehn, everybody is aware of that already. Nobody is telling lies. There is no lie in her call for help. She needed help. She needed money, where were we going to get N32 million naira? And she decided to do a video to explain her condition to people. You know the truth of the whole matter? All these foundations, all these people, in the course of that (the donations), different foundations came…


Mayowa Ahmed’s brother: I hope you understand?


Mayowa Ahmed’s brother: And all these foundations do not work alone. They all want money. Between you and I, people (from these foundations) will come to us and demand for various amounts of money (before they can assist us). You get?


Mayowa Ahmed’s brother: They wanted their own part of the money.


Mayowa Ahmed’s brother: That is the simple truth. That is why you are hearing crazy rumours like that. Even Toyin Aimakhu herself is a thief.

CALLER: Ah, oh, she (Toyin Aimakhu) is an unfortunate person. So she did not release the money?

Mayowa Ahmed’s brother: No, there is money in the account. You understand? You know of the processing and all, you also know that some people do not get help for more than five, six months. You get? So Mayowa was followed by the grace of God for her to be able to raise such an amount of money in less than three days. So we started processing. She will initially go to Dubai (United Arab Emirates). As a matter of fact, our biggest cousin is in the embassy, working on the processing. Assuming we know the outcome was going to be like this, we could have even hastened the processing but where is the money? You can imagine running CT scans for more than five times. You know how much CT scan costs? I did it. I left Lagos to do it in Ilorin because it was cheaper there where I did it for N100,000. In Lagos here, if you do not have N350,000, you cannot do it.

CALLER: I understand, I understand.

Mayowa Ahmed’s brother: That is not to talk of the series of tests which are even small.

CALLER: You know what happened? They should not release the money if it is in Mayowa’s account.

Mayowa Ahmed’s brother: The money is inside Mayowa’s account. Nobody is releasing it and there is no problem. Those of you who are family and friends should let everyone know the accusation is false. We do not have anything to hide. We are doing the processing and it is not that easy.

CALLER: Thank you very much my brother, it will also go live on Abiyamo’s page. I will send it to them.

Mayowa Ahmed’s brother: Thanks, thanks, thanks, thanks.


  1. Still on this matter?
    This story is becoming stale *shaking my head*
    Different versions from different corners. I don't know which version to believe. Oga ooooo

    1. I never knew it has gotten to this level for Toyin......

      beqqinq for money

  2. Hmmm.

    I never believed this is entirely a scam as harshly reported originally (for sensationalism and ranking). To put It out there that the 'family stole money from Nigerians' is in very bad taste...It worked but nobody should profit from other people's misfortunes.

    The (medical)facts are glaring but who can blame the family for clinging to even the tiniest hope and exploring all options to ensure their beloved lives?

    I pray for Mayowa and I pray nobody has to go through what she's going through.
    Let your love put on glasses to see clearly before getting married and if you must go ahead, do not bring children to the world biologically -please adopt.

  3. Judging by Toyin's recent media recognition and all the brouhaha and imbroglio trailing her, one could easily deduce that she is a very emotional sweet lady. One who could go to any extent to put a smile on the face of people she cherish and love. This uncontrollable emotions inherent in her was what led her to campaign for Mayowa. None of us knew Mayowa from any godamn place if not for the cheeky actress. There are a billion and one Mayowas out there who are not getting any help from any body. She ran around, called E-money, AY, Seyi Law, two other governors like that and some people we dont know, they all donated money and now the family is marring her name and personality? Thats so uncalled for. She has been dragged down in this whole mess, she has been dragged to the core of the earth.

    Toyin, next time, you think, use your head and control your emotions when trying to help people.

  4. I am disgusted by how people are suddenly trying to drag Toyin into the mud. She might have overreacted to the news that #savemayowa was a scam but people blaming her and cursing her is simply appalling and disgusting. Truth is if Toyin didn't care she wouldn't have cried out for help. She has EVERY RIGHT to want to fly with Mayowa. She used her platform to help and people were asking for update. I don't understand how people fail to see that she truly cares.
    I am also extremely disappointed in the Nigerian healthcare system. They had to let the cancer get to this stage before realizing it wasn't an ulcer? Yet the youths will still be fighting over politicians and tribes!

  5. I don't just believe this story, and I'm beginning to really believe the scam allegation.

    More like corruption is fighting back. I don't believe toyin would be that greedy to ask for anything. It doesn't make any sense.

  6. Let them take her to Prophet T. B. Joshua and she will be healed.

  7. Haba, but i thought she's helping ni o

  8. This family should leave toyin outta this mess. Warrisdis
