    Lol. And the brand staff are not light skinned themselves

    • Anoy March 1, 2016 at 1:57 pm

      Maybe this cream will help Toke Knuckles. ….

    • Jade March 1, 2016 at 2:27 pm

      Just like how many drug sellers are not users themselves. It’s basically, “you wan destroy yaself, here’s a help from us”.
      Toke, go girl she ain’t ashamed of her game. Her knuckles whitened up, it must be this product(side eye).

    • Nwa nna March 1, 2016 at 2:32 pm

      @ fish, They know better 😀

    • Bebabe March 1, 2016 at 10:20 pm

      Why would they? It is a choice, If they prefer to stay the way they are, I don’t think it should be a problem. Is like saying everybody that work as an optician should be wearing glasses.

    • Surely March 2, 2016 at 8:11 am

      U guys can insult bleaching from now till tomorrow yet you use another cream (relaxer) to permanently straighten your hair all in the name of silly excuses. Self hate is self hate.

  • King Bey March 1, 2016 at 1:23 pm

    Congrats dark…Teamlightskin

  • Okada man March 1, 2016 at 1:26 pm

    Congrats Toke, dem see you catch jare. By the by, the staff dem no dey use the product? just wondering why they aren’t light. They need to practice what they preach!

    • Jade March 1, 2016 at 2:29 pm

      Okada man, business is all about money. Most business don’t eat neither do they use what they put out there. They see money in it and run with it. It’s like telling men who started cosmetic, makeup to wear their own makeup.

    • Dee March 1, 2016 at 9:13 pm

      The staff can’t afford the cream

  • jide March 1, 2016 at 1:33 pm

    Toke be buying from FiFi sharp sharp d moon, yet be branding for Mecran. That’s what’s up.

  • Observer March 1, 2016 at 1:36 pm

    *Sips tea while giving Toke major side eye*

  • Ezinne Osuagwu March 1, 2016 at 1:43 pm

    Who noticed that the two brand reps are dark skinned… #Unlooking

  • Christian Sister March 1, 2016 at 1:51 pm

    Looool this is just asks. The reps ain’t buying what they’re selling or what? Toke’s hustle has sha paid off..

    • Christian Sister March 1, 2016 at 1:51 pm

      *awks

    • Brookany March 1, 2016 at 8:36 pm

      Stop calling yaseff Christian sister please! Your comments on here are so UNChrist-like! Biko!

  • DAME March 1, 2016 at 2:01 pm

    LOL, Y’all are funny. while it might have made sense for the company rep to be light-skinned. Its a choice and the products are made for those who have DECIDED to lighten up.
    That does not mean all the people who work for the company plus gate man must be light skinned,

    • I just waka come… March 1, 2016 at 3:54 pm

      It’s not about the light skin…
      They could have been as black as midnight (which would have been hella fuhnnyyyy,) but if those ladies are brand managers they should LOOK like they’re representing an international brand.
      Or is this product made in the United States of Aba?

      It’s just like those pastors who turn up at your door with sweat soaked, wrinkled clothes, designer sweat patches under each arm, dusty shoes with the tips like kerosene funnels preaching prosperity … Seriously?

      Your first brand is you.

      If you can’t even sell yourself convincingly, how can you sell someone’s products?
      For a moment, I thought they were Toke’s PAs or journalists or something.

      • Abk March 1, 2016 at 7:29 pm

        Lol, like. It’s just like the Hairfinity representatives with short and thinning hair, do you think these people actually use these things? Marketing strategy, Hun.

  • mj@adaku.co.uk March 1, 2016 at 2:38 pm

    LOLOL the staffs aren’t using the products??!!

    • Oby March 1, 2016 at 3:12 pm

    • La’Shonda Balogun March 1, 2016 at 3:43 pm

      Mo – take a seat girl.

      the phrase is “rub me up…the wrong way”. Check yourself before you check others.

      • Miss Mo March 1, 2016 at 8:19 pm

        My dear it’s actually “rub me off the wrong way”. 🙂

    • Ginger March 1, 2016 at 5:43 pm

      This is not an Englich class, its a damn blog for godness sake. Get over yourself, cuz it shows that you have some issues.

  • bleachers know themselves March 1, 2016 at 3:14 pm

    Bleachers know themselves.

    They know the best person to advertise their product

  • Nwa nna March 1, 2016 at 3:39 pm

    I cannot really get our infatuation with blacks bleaching their skins under the illusion that they will look better and be more accepted.. #inferiority-complalex much?!

    • Swagg1 March 1, 2016 at 5:41 pm

      And a skin cancer in the making!!!

    • Me March 1, 2016 at 10:16 pm

      Go and sit your black bum bum somewhere, lightening your skin may/may not have to do with inferiority complex. Jheeeeez. If lightening makes you look prettier please do it but use safe products

      PS if you are a lady with light skin/ chocolate skin and your bum bum is very black (which most black people are susceptible to) go and lighten your skin, that shit ain’t pretty. Goooshhhh

  • Belle March 1, 2016 at 3:55 pm

    If their products can clear off Toks knuckles then they’re onto a winner, as most women with knuckles issues will purchase their products.

    • jide March 1, 2016 at 4:34 pm

      The question is. – does Toke use Mecran or dooes she use mixologists like Fifi D moon?

  • Toke micheal Jackson March 1, 2016 at 5:04 pm

    Toke don’t mind them jare,as far as money dey pay.

  • Swagg1 March 1, 2016 at 5:40 pm

    Idiot ,babes with low self-esteem that thinks skin lightening product is the best product to endorse. Total disgrace and I hope girls are not looking up to her as a role model.

  • Cece March 1, 2016 at 9:42 pm

    By using someone who is already light skinned and obviously using other products, there is no proof this will work.

  • Iris March 1, 2016 at 9:50 pm

    What’s unprofessional about ‘nabs’? It’s used this way all the time in the media

  • Solape March 1, 2016 at 10:10 pm

    Awwww see Deola from igbinedion uni, the sales rep on the right.Am proud of you gal.

  • nnenne March 1, 2016 at 10:49 pm

    To think that you all were against Whitelicious!!

  • girl March 17, 2016 at 9:52 am

    I hate the way people are so hypocritical. Skin lightening doesn’t mean someone necessarily has low self esteem or whatever. Sometimes people just think something looks good and choose to do it. It is a known fact that fair skinned ladies are generally seen or assumed to be attractive and everyone wants to be attractive to others. It’s the same way you wear a long weave. Why not call that self hate? I think a lot of people criticising here would do it if they were bold enough and there was no stigma attached. My philosophy is live and let live. You sit here writing in bad English about Toke while she capitalises on your gossip and is probably making a killing. Do you think the company would have chosen her had there not been so much on social media etc about her skin tone? This is a good example that there is no such thing as bad publicity. I personally think she made a good business decision. Obviously some commenters if put in her shoes would have made an emotional decision based on what some faceless people think. Abeg!
