In her book 'On Becoming', Toke Makinwa revealed how a gas cylinder leak led to the fire incident that killed her parents when she was just 8-years-old.

Yesterday, she tweeted that before the ugly incident happened, her parents once joked about dying together and it eventually happened.

According to her, 'they joked about dying together, perfect ride/die and it happened. They were buried side by side'.

Her father, Caleb Ifemayowa Makinwa was 35 while her mother, Modupe Monica Makinwa died at the age of 34.
