Media personality Toke Makinwa on Saturday penned down an emotional tribute to her late sister.

The TV host wrote the tribute on Instagram with a photo of her late sister.

In the tribute, Toke recounted some of her favourites moments with her sister, saying that she was grateful their paths crossed.

“How do I eulogize you when your story is still being written? You are meant to be here, you had so many dreams, one of my favorite things about talking to you is how your eyes lit up when you talked about your writing, or how restless you’ll get when you say ‘Toke, I have to share my story, I have to do more, I’ve been asking God how to begin to share my journey of faith even in the middle of confusion.’

“Or is it when I’ll ask how you are still trusting God when it seems like nothing is happening and your response will be positive. You loved your God, you believed your God and like job, you never let your test determine your faith. But sis, you were only at the beginning, ki lo se le???? How can life be so cruel? How can heaven open up the gates for you, it is not your time now, I have so many questions but who will answer them?” she wrote in parts.

Concluding, Toke promised to take care of the three children her sister left behind.

“Egbon mi, ore mi, how do I carry on? You have given me 3 children and I promise to raise them right. Your husband is broken, completely shattered but I promise to be there, however. I promise to be in the lives of everyone you left behind sis, you always wanted me to make time and now, time is all I have. I pray so. I wouldn’t need a reminder from you to call the boys on their birthdays, I promise. I’m sorry sis, so sorry you had to leave us, I love you but your maker loves you most. Good night sis, I love you deep,” she wrote.

The 33-year-old had earlier revealed that her sister died during the finale of the just-concluded Big Brother Naija Shine Ya Eye season, in which she played host.
