Why Toyin chose Emeka, despite his career hiatus stemming from personal trials? Empathy and belief in second chances. She saw past the headlines and recognized his inherent talent and screen presence. “I needed a calm, loving man,” Toyin explains, “and Emeka perfectly fit the bill. I’ve been speaking with him for a while, and despite everything he’s faced, I see his potential in this role. Everyone deserves a chance to shine again.”

This message of second chances extends beyond casting. “Malaika” also reflects Toyin’s own journey, with 60% of the film mirroring her personal struggles, including motherhood at 39. By sharing her story, she hopes to inspire others facing adversity.

While matching outfits at the premiere fueled speculation, Toyin clarifies that their on-screen connection doesn’t translate to off-screen romance. Nevertheless, her unwavering support for Emeka resonates deeply, proving that even amidst personal storm.
