Nollywood actress, Toyin Abraham has revealed why she changed her name from Aimakhu.
She explained the reason behind the change of name to The Will DownTown Magazine, saying that her pastor had a vision to change her name to Abraham.
Her pastor stressed that her former name, Aimakhu is not good as it will make people beef with me for no reason.
Toyin also added a lot of people beefed with her a lot when she was bearing the name, Aimakhu.
Speaking further, Toyin Abraham said that after she changed her name from Aimakhu six years ago, her life actually changed.
“My dad’s family name is Aimakhu, short for Aimakhume, which means ‘you are just chasing me for nothing.’
“People told us to change it a very long time ago, but I didn’t listen because I had started acting with it.
“All my sisters were married then, so they had already changed it to their husbands’ last names. The only son we have in our family changed his name to David Abraham.
“One day, a vision came; a pastor from CAC (Christ Apostolic Church) told my mum to tell me to change the name.
“The pastor said the name is not good as it will make people beef with me for no reason. And that was something that used to happen a lot. My life changed.”
