OAP silences critics, shares pictures of NYU lecture

Doubters of the OAP can now keep their criticism to themselves after pictures of her NYU visit emerged


This is following mild jibes from her followers who felt she had overblown the planned address which seemed like it was meant for the whole university community.

Makinwa however spoke to only a class  of undergraduate on the topic "Building a Successful Brand in the Digital space."

Despite the online savagery that has surrounded her visit to the NYU, the book author still felt motivated and accomplished after what seemed like a very successful outing.

According to the light skinned beauty who dished in an Instagram post today, she was able to use the negativity to explain better the concept of branding.

"Awww❤️ thank you Prof L.

"Getting feedback of my guest lecture at NYU warms my heart. This was my first attempt at teaching and it went really well.

"To share my knowledge on brand building even while I'm still learning can only be a blessing from God and I am available to be further used by him. Was I nervous? Hell yeah.

"But just the thought of a Nigerian girl sharing her success story to a room full of multinational students was enough to push me.

"Funny thing is while the lecture was going on God used the ignorance of many to further illustrate my point to the class.

"The students checked me out online and found out I was trending and it led to questions about dealing with negative feedback from customers and how to deal with the not so great comments and it was nice to use a practical example.

"You can't take the good alone, try as much as possible to cater to every customer there will be some that are completely hard to please and that's ok!

"Keep working on your product, keep evolving and pushing the envelope, don't get distracted, keep at it till you perfect your craft and even after you think you have, there's still some room to become some more.

"I pray my life inspires someone out there to be BOLD in the face of storms, I hope you take a chance and live unapologetically. #onbecomingaglobalbrand #NYU #guestlecturer #TMtotheworld #ProfessorTM."

It has been a long period of activity for Toke Makinwa who is currently on a U.S tour of her book, "On Becoming."

The text embodies some of her life experiences including her failed marriage with Maje Ayida who cheated on her.
