She first discovered her love for radio when she hosted a teenage program on Cool FM in 1999 though short lived because of family concerns, she fell in love with radio and the fire was lit, she quit her job and focused on getting an education which she did.
In June 2010, an opportunity to be an on-air-personality presented itself again and after finding the life of a banker too boring for her creativity, Toke auditioned at Silverbird’s Rhythm 93.7 and got the job as the host of her own late night show called Rhythms of the Night. After a couple of months, she was moved to primetime and presently co-hosts the early morning show “The Morning Drive”.
She enjoys travelling, reading, socializing and has 1001 blonde moments, special times tagged “Toke Moments”. As for her future, she says “I want to be that girl who lives a life of purpose and fulfillment, a very passionate life, worthy of news and one that inspires everyone. I want to be that girl that lives like there’s no tomorrow, and when I am gone, I want to get to heaven and even the angels would want my autograph”
