    • Uche

      November 19, 2012 at 3:30 pm

      What a silly question. So birthday celebrations are now reserved for only non-celebrities?

    • Nate

      November 19, 2012 at 3:39 pm

      What’s wrong with someone celebrating their birthday. YOLO !

      but why are these celebrities into bday celebrations this year?
      Because they were born too,just like you.
      Silly question!!!

    November 19, 2012 at 3:24 pm

    This whole “SOIREE” looks soo tacky… The girl with the long hair down to her butt ***SILENCE** moving on. Just the celebrant looks decent. I think she needs new friends cos this is not fabuolus. Let’s see next year.

    • Wow!

      November 20, 2012 at 7:38 pm

      Yup, the girl with the endless weave needs to spend less money on weave and more on creaming the chalk on her elbows….nb blue contacts are so over.
      Come on Bella don’t be afraid to post comments that are true! Or is she your friend?

      November 19, 2012 at 6:29 pm

      do u know Toke personality? Why do u trolls crawl thru every birthday post accusing celebs of lying about their age when u cant even rebut by giving their correct age? Annoying bitter trolls.

    • No Long Thing

      November 20, 2012 at 6:09 am

      Oma, it’s possible. You know Naija sun can make one look much older than they really are.

    November 19, 2012 at 3:31 pm

    Toke I never want to see a long weave on you ever again!
    This is your hairstyle! Short hair is perfect for u!
    Long hair drowns u
    And this is the best u have ever looked
    Happy Birthday

    • Nma

      November 19, 2012 at 6:46 pm

      I agree with this 110%!!! Toke is petite so long hair does drown out her features. I never noticed her popping cheekbones till now…and never even noticed her svelte yet shapely figure till now. Plus the hair took like 10 yrs off her age (no lie)…she looks 18 in those pics! The short hair is perfect for u Toke! Pls keep it! Happy Birthday!

    • Anon

    Person1: Does anyone know if there are any more TONING CREAMS left on the shelves at the mall? Also all the FOUNDATIONS at the make-up section seem to gone!
    Attendant: Madam, Today is Toke Makinwa’s birthday….
    Person1: Go figure! 0__0

    • Lolade

      November 19, 2012 at 5:16 pm

      that was completely unneeded. I hope that silly comment made you feel better about yourself for all of 5 seconds….people are there enjoying life and you are there boning cos they are bleaching and wearing foundation…..let us hear word abeggi…….

      Oh hush ur mouth! I bet u were expecting for this to be a “Toke Bashfest”. U have failed! The worst is that its those that always criticize that do the worst behind closed doors. The only diff is that yo azz aint famous for others to scrutinize. Get a life cos that was so uncalled for!

      why r u saying “y’all know WE cant hate”? as if u’re some high schooler that hate on a girl with ur jealous friends. Be an adult and form ur own opinion dang! Internet gangster bully….no one dey ur team.

    So, I ‘ve seen all the pictures and I have to say that this is prettiest I ‘ve seen Toke look. She’s gorgeous! Her skin is glowing. Now here’s one girl who knows how to spend her money on herself. I also think she’s found the perfect hair do for her face.

    Toke looks good and I think this is best I’ve seen her look. Meanwhile that Karen STAYS posing like a village girl; what’s with throwing two fingers up like a rapper? So uncouth!

    • Idak

      November 19, 2012 at 5:18 pm

      Maybe she is a rapper too. She might have an unreleased single about to be leaked (You know all songs are leaked, these days).
