  • cynthia January 31, 2013 at 1:31 pm

    What type of dirty video is this? Gosh men are disrespecting women, women are disrespecting themsleves. it is well!

    • Urban January 31, 2013 at 5:01 pm

      It’s her body, how is she disrespecting? This is 2013 not 1954. Women are free to express themselves in whichever way they please!

    • I hate people that say “thank me later” January 31, 2013 at 10:01 pm

      you mean she makes better music?? she just get sense to collaborate if the a better person and has way more sex appeal than those two….

    • judy March 18, 2013 at 9:09 pm

      Please… you call this singing? Genny isn’t a bad singer actually…

  • theresa January 31, 2013 at 1:45 pm

    She tried….

  • wow January 31, 2013 at 1:49 pm

    good job to the stylist, the director and the hairstylist, the video is good but the talent sucks, it looks like she’s the lead video girl , that’s it , she just stuck to singing the hook cos her voice can’t do much more hence the auto tune.

  • preye January 31, 2013 at 1:49 pm

    i love the video…..keep it up tonto!

  • floxy January 31, 2013 at 1:49 pm

    Whats great in dis video bikonu? Yimu

  • if you are a wedding enthusiast/wedding lover visit my wedding blog at January 31, 2013 at 1:50 pm

    Awwww! i love the video. those NBC jokers will soon ban this one. Really impressed though. Am I the only one that thinks Tonto looks up to Nicki Minaj? check out the facial expressions and the mannerisms. Kudos to Gbemi Phillips.. she did a very good job.

  • kay January 31, 2013 at 1:51 pm

    To all tonto’s haters #POKO… lovely. to all those talkn about erotic side… am sure u watched timaya’S shake ya bum bum and said wow… she didnt even go close to been as erotic as that in this beautiful video… for una eyes she go dey go higher… berra stop the hating and find sumthing nice to do… if you have nothing nice to say about this video, please just watch and shut up… ##POKO

  • remmy January 31, 2013 at 1:52 pm

    smh… her facial expression zero?

  • amy January 31, 2013 at 1:53 pm

    lol nice video quality, but really did she have to make it so erotic so it can sell?? …

  • whats January 31, 2013 at 1:59 pm

  • Anon1 January 31, 2013 at 2:15 pm

    What does POKO mean???

  • Sbaby January 31, 2013 at 2:22 pm

    Where do i start from
    1 Goldie should be scared as Tonto is about to take over the nigerian lady Gaga title

    2 seriously is Tonto ok

    3 Cossy Orjiakor too should panice because Tonto is trying to jack her Porn swagga

    4 is Tonto well ?

    5 who funded the video sef it better be a free gift from the producer and directir because nbc will ban this blue music before you say Poko

    6 this is a joke right?

    7 Itz really Ova for all Nigerians and false encouragement including bloggers, see what y’all have caused,poko thinks shes a musician,, see her feelung her self

    • Asari January 31, 2013 at 7:32 pm

      haters will always remain haters….just enter ur room and judge ur self before coming out to judge Tonto with ur big mouth…mtcheeew

    • Realist January 31, 2013 at 8:41 pm


  • isaid!! January 31, 2013 at 2:24 pm

    You have to give it to Tonto, she’s very determined. Go for it girl!! Please tone it down though, so the young ones can also watch.

  • well January 31, 2013 at 2:35 pm

    nice vid…cant get over how WEAK the beat is sha

  • dee January 31, 2013 at 2:39 pm

    90 % of d video is slow motion. nawa o!

    • Jenny Craig February 1, 2013 at 12:06 am

      Hahahahaa!! I thought it was just me that noticed that

  • nene January 31, 2013 at 2:39 pm

    lovely video. not bad.

  • nene January 31, 2013 at 2:46 pm

    the styling and video quality makes the video good and i think tonto shud stick to music because she has horrible diction, so music can cover it. the whole production (minus the talent) is better than omotola and genevieve’s attempt because tonto is crazy and u need to be crazy and energetic to be a musician, so i hope it works for her. she should leave Nollywood for the talented ones, her gra-gra fits the music industry.

  • kemi January 31, 2013 at 2:47 pm

    you don’t need “TALENT” to be a musician, so aunty POKO will do better in music with her mad personality, just like Rihanna.

    • Lue January 31, 2013 at 3:04 pm

      excuse you. Riri actually has talent……..lots of it too

    • I hate people that say “thank me later” January 31, 2013 at 10:08 pm

      Abi o, I think rihanna can sing though, she had chart topping songs before she went crazy….plus Abeg why are we even disturbing this girl, to me her singing is not any different from her acting….If we kept watching her movies with her terrible diction and less than average acting skills, why are we then raise hell over her music??….nice video, okay song if she had hired a real person to sing (then she could Milli Vanilli her way through it) instead of the autotune…

  • beeess January 31, 2013 at 2:48 pm


  • Mam January 31, 2013 at 2:57 pm

    Seriously TONTO! U can do better…. The editor sucks, stylist (hair and costume) sucks, the director sucks…. the videographer did a great job with the picture. Poko please you CAN DO BETTER!!! *Yes You Can*

    A Loyal Fan.

  • That girl January 31, 2013 at 3:57 pm

    this will haunt my nightmares for ever

  • January 31, 2013 at 3:58 pm

    O ma se o. I was actually saying pple shld leave Tonto alone to be her…but after watching this video, I no fit talk again.

    My prayer goes to our children that God will protect them from sexual immorality and from anything that will not give Him glory in Jesus name. Say Amen if u agree.

    Pls visit my blog.
    www. thebanquethall for the Word of God.
    It’s a Christian blog. Pls remember to put God first in all things.

    • Urban January 31, 2013 at 5:02 pm

      Shebi you are a child of God, teach your own children the ways of God and leave others to their own!

      • January 31, 2013 at 5:32 pm

        Unfortunately, I will not raise my kids in an island…they will still be in the society..with other kids, and I pray my kids will not mix up with kids that lack moral value. So if u feel my prayer is not valid, then my prayer is not for ur kids. Maybe u wish to have a child who will be known for sexual displays like this. People can make music, good music without shaking bumbum and all that. And trust me, everybody has not gone insane okay? I understand if it’s a man displaying this kind of video, cos some men see women as sex toys…but I don’t get it when it’s a woman. Don’t get me wrong…sexy is good. A woman can and be sexy not be oldschool I agree. Just like u, this is my opinion.

        Meanwhile, check out my christian blog…

  • Numommy January 31, 2013 at 4:02 pm

    Tonto is living her “Truth” and doing what makes her happy …i envy that about her. I know you are gonna be relevant for a very long time boo…keep makin that money xoxo

  • vanessa January 31, 2013 at 4:08 pm

    nice styling,simple set,well its sure not a vibe for the club or she said she just wanted to try something else and shes doing it.she ha =d the highest downloads people so chilax

  • lovelyn January 31, 2013 at 4:20 pm

    Not a bad atempt at all… Poko babe more shea butter to ur elbow. Dnt worry wen u and Dbanj finally agree on his terms of signin u on, u’l give Nicky Minaj a run for her money, but Nicky’s ass not inclusive ooo. Well done!

  • Oluwaseun January 31, 2013 at 4:23 pm

    I actually luv dis,dunno bout ya #rolls eyes and walks away#

  • brianna January 31, 2013 at 4:28 pm

    i actually like the video, the effects, styling and production was really good,one of the most visually exciting videos to come out of nigeria, however Tonto is not a vocalist, but i think with her crazy over the top personality and a few vocal lessons and direction, tonto has the ability to be great

  • Me andYou January 31, 2013 at 4:32 pm

    This is a joke gone too far….Stop Ittttttttttttttttttt *in Arnold Shwarzenegger voice*….lmao

  • x factor January 31, 2013 at 4:32 pm

    This human being is deluded………This reminds me of miming in my secondary schools days

  • Nollywoodgaga January 31, 2013 at 4:39 pm

    First, this a objective point of view, i don’t hate or like miss tontoh (she doesn’t pay my bills so..)
    Then said, my first impression when i saw the video was : all this teasing for that ?? humm
    Song : really annoying for me. not the kind i will listen for 2, 3 times. I was expecting maybe something more dancing, but i don’t know how to dance this song (maybe if we have to dance like Tontoh did on the video…)
    Video clip : correct, well executed.
    Tontoh in the video clip : Dear Tontoh, i don’t know if all the wahala you make with your face is supposed to be sexy, but for me it’s not, definitely not !
    your tentative of sexy dance and gangsta style is fake, so fake… and your poses are so tacky !!!
    Hmm, it’s not easy to be beyonce hein.
    Vocals : I don’t know how people can judge how she is singing because the voice is completely au-totuned ! At my end, i don’t know if she sing good or not beacuse i don’t heard the voice of Tontoh

    End of my 2 cents !

    • Frannie January 31, 2013 at 6:20 pm

      Please speak English… Next!!!

      • Nollywoodgaga January 31, 2013 at 7:16 pm

        lol Tontoh Fans, please calm down !
        My mother tongue is French not english !
        Btw, it funny to read that when i see a lot of pidjin there

    • Bleed blue January 31, 2013 at 6:41 pm

      The 2 cents you would have used to buy English textbook

      • Nollywoodgaga January 31, 2013 at 7:13 pm

        lol Tontoh Fans, please calm down !
        My mother tongue is French not english !

      • intheoverseas February 1, 2013 at 1:28 am

        LMAO!!! thats the funniest retort ever! I was going to say same.

        Dear french girl, blog english is not a good benchmark for learning the language. If you have time to learn “tacky” and “wahala” and “hein” you should also have been able to learn the difference between “that said” and “then said”, “tentative” and “attempt” and even “don’t heard” and “didn’t hear”. Je t’en prie 😉

  • Urban January 31, 2013 at 5:01 pm

    Tis a horrific song!

  • linda enwerem January 31, 2013 at 5:05 pm

    she try sha!!

  • Daeze87 January 31, 2013 at 5:24 pm

    errrm Im slightly disturbed now

  • jamila January 31, 2013 at 5:27 pm

    can she sing without track?because it seems like terry G sang the song.well is better to try than giving up,but i prefare tonto on movies than music,she’s trying to imprest us the viewers but the truth is she dosen’t have the voice to sing.well done Tonto but try to work on your voice pls.

  • anon January 31, 2013 at 5:27 pm

    MY SOUL SAYS YAAAAAAAASSSSSSSSSSSSSSS! this is a SEXY raunchy hot woman! Not many nigerians can pull this off!

  • A.D January 31, 2013 at 5:57 pm

    *very long sigh* na wa o, this a very classic example of good video meets dead song, and i dont kno, buh………..did she, was she…..dat deep voice at the middle, was that meant to be her…sha, i wont even be surprised if people like her song, even the chipmunks had the own moment of fame, sad truth is tonto gat no voice period!

  • debbie January 31, 2013 at 7:06 pm

    this is a joke!!! pointless

  • chichii January 31, 2013 at 7:20 pm

    She is a pretty girl and that’s all I’ve got..she is right..”the more you look, the less you see”…seriously now, I’m I the only one who does not understand what she and the guy were saying in the chorus??

  • Asari January 31, 2013 at 7:37 pm

    haters will always remain haters….just enter ur room and judge ur self before coming out to judge Tonto with ur big mouth.mtcheeew….anyway nice song and May God help and bless u

  • Juddymak January 31, 2013 at 7:42 pm

    @brianna u are the only one that makes sense, For a first try, I would say not bad to Ms Tonto, however there’s work to be done, so the only good u can do is surround yourself with people that can improve you. They all said same about Psquare, loot at them now……making paper

  • jade January 31, 2013 at 7:54 pm

  • Cima January 31, 2013 at 10:41 pm

    I must say, this is the best nollywood turn singer video/musician . Tonto, you need to know u r sexy on your own, be as natural as you are in your films and ul be fine. Nice 1

    Kindly visit

  • zeeze January 31, 2013 at 11:14 pm

    this woman so pretty, but has nothing to show for character or class. this video is so trashy. young woman you need to seek wisdom, it is so obvious your lacking.

  • #jealousygetsyounowhere January 31, 2013 at 11:59 pm

    talentless, awful, dreadful, and on top of that whiny autotune…. she should stick to her day job, whatever that is!

    And if you don’t know we can learn english everywhere, even on bella naija. For example you give me a lesson tonight.

  • Priscy February 1, 2013 at 10:02 am

    itz Poko baby

  • Damie Damie February 1, 2013 at 3:07 pm

    I came here eagerly awaiting the evil comments and i wasn’t disappointed 😀 Thank you people! And btw, music means different things to different people. if Tonto’s style isn’t your thing, then move on. why evils with the comments? 🙁
    First Tonto, you tried. don’t mind them. Good video quality but next time reduce the opening and shaking of bumbum. And the lip-syncing is rather obvious. And the theme is rather wrong. You guys are breaking up, i expected to see something more emotional and passionate. not sitting inside a car, opening and closing nyash and squeezing face like you want to poo-poo. You try. But pls don’t make a video for ‘Hi’, this one is bad. i mean good enough.
    And Snypa is ggggoooooooooorrrrrrrrgggggggggggeeeeeeeeeoooooooouuuuuussssss!!!! probably his voice and cute face that made me watch this video twice!

  • ogochukwu February 1, 2013 at 8:47 pm

    tonto need to hit up tiwa and ask her how to be sexy and be cute and look cool at same dam time so she can drop this ratchett and tacky attiude she thinks is sexy

  • Ola Brown February 2, 2013 at 10:21 pm

    Tonto… are joking right. You need to lay off the weed. I just love the fact that you gave me that something to laugh about!!!!!!!!

  • Ash February 3, 2013 at 8:33 pm

    The video is awesome & d song not too bad, I must commend tonto dike she is such a huge inspiration 2 me right now despite all d criticism since her song dropped she raised her head high & refused 2 be discouraged, I see her going places in her music career in no distant time.

  • hally February 5, 2013 at 8:51 pm

    Nice video for a stupid song

  • casey February 6, 2013 at 3:50 am

    what the heck!!!!!!!
    trying to be beyonce and rihanna @ d same time…..
    singing is a thing of joke tonto….. what are you thinking… you didnt have to girl!!!

  • Ochuko February 10, 2013 at 10:34 pm

    lmfao, i cant wait for the video of her 2nd song to be released.

  • whocares February 17, 2013 at 10:31 pm

    For everyone who has had enough, and after watching this video feels like they have conquered their worst nightmare… let me ruin your day; Tonto is in the process of shooting the video for “Hi”!!!!! And will you watch that one too? I bet you will so grin and bear it Poko is here to stay! lol.

  • rose February 27, 2013 at 11:21 pm

    You’ve got the beat and I think you’ve also got everything you need to be a musician just a little bit upgrade to ur voice The music is good,keep it up and God bless u

  • Debbie D February 28, 2013 at 2:54 am

    Abeg, did all diz ppl watch the same video i just did? Okay, lets start with the song. What was the content really? What style, confused ragga? The costumes and make up, did i hear someone say drag queen-ish? The video was good because the director is good, not becos tonto is good. I however give her 100% for using the proverb “Fake it till you make it” to her best advantage. CRAPPY song, sluttish moves for a song that is supposed to be a kind of “We are never getting back together” theme. If i were the guy she is ova, id be mighty glad i didnt take no slut home to my Momma!

  • Zara March 27, 2013 at 12:02 pm

    I sing but i get very shy when i have to infront of people. Must commend you for coming out LIKE THIS…but USE YOUR VOICE!!!

  • Florida March 28, 2013 at 11:12 am

    Poko is here to stay.nice video.

  • Tonia April 25, 2013 at 7:20 am

    ok….. the truth is that tonto knows how to put it down, this video is far more better than most nigerian music videos i’ve seen but the truth is her talent is not for singing, i’m an upcoming artist but with tontos money nd everything she can never, i mean never stand me in a real stage dat knows what singing is all abt, even the guys voice sounds more better than hers but i admire her for just one thing!!! >>>>> she dose not give a f********ck abt what people say, mark my words, a time will come when haters will have no choice but to love her!! >>>>> POKO !

  • baby treasure May 6, 2013 at 10:33 am
