Though the duo is keeping the major details about their show under wraps for now, BellaNaija gathered that the show will be an entertainment news driven show. Let’s see if we are correct as details emerge.


As you know, Toke uploads weekly video blogs and for this week, she is talking about “5 Types of People to Avoid“. Toke mentions “Serial BB Pingers”, “People who just got back” “information oversharers” and more.

    Ode. You just talked a lot without really saying anything. And we def need to avoid such airheads who would stop at nothing in their quest for attention.

    • handsignals January 11, 2013 at 12:37 pm

      Guess what, when she publishes another vlog, you will be scouring the internet to watch it. When you see her name on a blog post, you will click to read it!!She is seeking for attention, yet you gave it to her by not only watching her video but making a comment. Now who is the real ode?

        Amen tell her…so she watched all the way? Then toke won !

  • amah January 11, 2013 at 9:32 am

    This Toke’s hair na wa o..and what is with all the veins on her hands. she no dey chop belleful ni

  • Dobz January 11, 2013 at 10:04 am

    This chic is just imposing herself on us. She didn’t even manage a full season of the 3 livechicks that says a lot. And these her videos just don’t work. Toke, my advice is take time out to know urself and what u really want. U come across as desperate to be popular and celebrated. And I pray ur dream comes true, but sincerely u aren’t there yet

    • Non professional opinion January 11, 2013 at 12:35 pm

      What she is doing is working though because so many people seem to hate her and they will pay attention to whatever she does just to say they hate it.

  • Amazeballs! January 11, 2013 at 10:28 am

    I actually really enjoyed that!!! lmaoooooo at “serial pingers” cause i used to be one of them!!!!!! As for the shamless name droppers, i can totally relate with Toke, it gets on my last nerves when people do that!!!!!

  • Jd January 11, 2013 at 11:15 am

    Toke, pls get a life, this is just too petty! I was expecting something much more educating. It’s totally a waste of time. Some cheap publicity!

  • Retrochic January 11, 2013 at 11:18 am

    @ Dobz my sentients exactly, y didnt she last on 3live chicks, defintely says a lot about her persona, cant stand staying in the same place with her, jeez

  • Jo! January 11, 2013 at 11:24 am

    Mixture of Yoruba and fake bri’ish accent…

  • Inspiration everywhere January 11, 2013 at 11:58 am

    I actually enjoyed the very first Vlog Toke did. But since then it’s become quite annoying. Toke you’re a pretty lady, you don’t need to conceal it with the fake persona that you are putting out. We love the real Toke. By the way, give yourself a hug! You rep your fifth type of person well. You are a serial name dropper 🙂

  • The original Beebee January 11, 2013 at 11:58 am

    think shes tryin to tone down the ‘accent’..btw, not sure i like this low cut on her doe!

  • Princess January 11, 2013 at 12:17 pm

    Toke one sincere advise on what u can do 2 spice up ur vlog: toke if u had said somethings in pidgin or yourba especially d playfully statements for example “u just came back from Dubai seton concer mi 4 inside” this would actually make people see a lighter side of you. U come across as too frigid

  • Nice Anon January 11, 2013 at 12:22 pm

    Nah we don’t need to bring a pen and paper close.
    This is funny because the folks who name drop look absolutely stupid when they do it.That constant need to feel relevant is such a disease. I find it rather childish even.

    Funny how she didn’t talk about the most annoying thing ever! Nigerian acquired foreign accents. Disgustingly unpleasant that.

    • mizz curly January 11, 2013 at 1:20 pm

      My sister I wonder tooo oh!she totes forgort those with acquired accents!*sarcastic smirk* btw are u d nice anon dat used to blog??I loved ur blog!so real and such a refreshing read.felt like jist with le pals!

      • Nice Anon January 11, 2013 at 2:33 pm

        LOL! Yeah the very same one o. Thank you!I miss blogging only a little bit though 🙂

  • Tolu January 11, 2013 at 12:35 pm

    So we should avoid them because of these retarded reasons u have given? Is it that serious? How petty! Smh….Oga o!

  • jenny January 11, 2013 at 12:45 pm

    I ve never wanted to comment on this issue, but just incase she reads these comments….. she has to stop being angry…. first it was why are men morons, today, more insults… people dont find angry people attractive…. Look at Omotola, as boring as her show is, people still like her and can watch it, cos shes always laffing…. This one Toke comes here like as if shes angry with the world pisses people off. Im not saying that she has to stop her videos, but if she wants long term success, she has to change her style…. try positive things, encouraging people, fun stuff, how she goes about her daily life, how she became successful, how she handles issues in a manner that can be emulated…. these are just some ideas that she can cultivate on for her next videos, Goodluck

    • Anon January 11, 2013 at 3:02 pm

      True Jenny. Blame it on Maje. Lol.

    • adeisstupid January 11, 2013 at 4:16 pm

      Have you gone on her blog, to see the inspirational stuff she puts up?Off course not!You guys will blind yourself from the positive things she says.You guys prefer to dwell on the negative because it gives you reason to be hateful…I really fear for the kind of children women in my generation will breed!!!Such a shame!

  • Hally. January 11, 2013 at 1:22 pm

    guys ,im not a big fan of toke,yea.but no one is perfect. i wonder what this babe did to people, every move she makes people criticize / insult/hate d hell out of her. please lets give this babe a chance ,cos she’s trying. really!!!!!!!!! pls.

  • MISSKHADIVA January 11, 2013 at 2:58 pm

    This should be a pet peeves video not people to avoid.

  • bored January 11, 2013 at 2:59 pm

    This girl is dry and talentless…and her hair makes her look like a male mouse. she forgot to mention number 1 ppl to avoid – ppl born, raised, educated n still live in nigeria but try to sound different. #petpeevenumerouno

    PS: Defenders of her fakeness, pls she needs to take a leaf from funmi iyanda’s book – she speaks very well in a PROPER naija accent. even though she is very well travelled..we all understand her and she is a global success.

  • huh? January 11, 2013 at 3:07 pm

    She left “3 Live Chicks”? I stop watching the show,because she crack me real up,with her fake persona,the rattling and the noise,give me headache! Luv Oreka Godis,but she wouldn’t even give her the chance..but I luv her sense of style and her slim frame,and how she is coping with all those bitter hate toward her,I know she will later be accepted..

  • Somebody’s Pikin January 11, 2013 at 3:09 pm

    I love Toke, respect her hustle and what she’s achieved so far. However, I guess the reason she gets so much hate is partly because she’s brought it on herself. Saying goes ” do not throw stones if you live in a glass house”, Toke is the Queen of name dropping….I know Tiwa Savage, I know Tiffany Amber….I had to do a runner for fear of being bored to death by names that add no value to my life…lol!

  • Ade January 11, 2013 at 3:36 pm

    Anyone who defends Toke is
    1)Toke herself
    2)Toke’s family
    3)Toke’s best friends
    And that is all. No one is a fan. We are bored. She is boring and fake.

    • Adeisstupid January 11, 2013 at 4:08 pm

      Anyone who thinks like you is surely dumb!So because people wont joing in on your hate they must know her.One day sa, God will deliver Naija girls from their bitterness and hate.

    • Defender of the Universe January 11, 2013 at 4:45 pm

      LOL … jokes. I defend Toke cos we all need someone to defend us. I don’t know the girl but the fact that she’s still here making us comment is props to her. If she were to be truly irrelevant, no one would click or comment on this post.

  • Wonderwoman January 11, 2013 at 4:43 pm

    Is it me or does Toke not share a resemblance to Tonto?

  • asa January 11, 2013 at 4:54 pm

    why does she say ‘this’ instead of ‘these’ . lol

  • Bola January 11, 2013 at 5:22 pm

    Leave Toke alone, learn to appreciate other peoples efforts. If you are going to critique her vlog give her specifics that she can use to do a better job.

  • Dziree January 11, 2013 at 5:34 pm

    Thanks Toke, we already avoid you. Only that BN insists on spamming us with your crap. Total waste of time. And it’s not sultan of “brunay” its BRUNEI pronounced “bru:nai”. Thank me later

    • Cate January 11, 2013 at 6:20 pm

      Seriously you really avoid her. No one dragged your hand to click on the link with Toke. With your own hand you clicked on the link with Toke and that same hand clicked on the video to watch. What stopped you from moving on to another page. If she was that irrelevant you wouldn’t be clicking on a link that clearly has her name in front of it.

  • Kemi January 11, 2013 at 6:36 pm

    You all are just jealous …what have you done for yourself? I still love She is a celebrity in Naija becos anytime Bella Naija writes about her, you all read it. Toke is doing great things, you all haters…go get a

  • Idak January 11, 2013 at 6:45 pm

    5 types of women you need to avoid:
    1. Women who bleach (abi na toning?)
    2. Women who force some undefined foreign accent.


  • thui January 11, 2013 at 7:37 pm

    Toke stop coming here to defend yourself.It is obvious it is you.

  • Shee January 11, 2013 at 7:55 pm

    But honestly, I sniff (kpomo)beef from most of the haters that have commented. Nigerians we must always find a loophole sha …. It is well….She’s just highlighting the characters of individuals… Its because some of you fall into the categories she mentioned, that’s the reason for all these malicious responses…..Hahahahahahaha.

  • TimiNY January 11, 2013 at 9:06 pm

    For me, she’s a hustler and whether you like it or not it will or is paying off. Watch her make money while you slave away at GTB *pun intended*

  • Aai January 11, 2013 at 9:24 pm

    Hello Toke Makinwa/Toke Makinwa’s PR/ Toke Makinwa’s family members. We know you are the ones defending her. Aint nobody knocking her hustle. We still have a right to say she irritates the crap out of us though. We are not hating on her hustle. She has the opportunity. The problem is she sucks. POINT BLANK PERIOD

    • Jessica Lin January 11, 2013 at 9:42 pm

      She sucks and irritates you but you took the time to click on the page. You see how inane you sound. Not every one of us wants to lumped in the “lets thrash, drag down, and dehumanize Toke group”.

  • otunba January 11, 2013 at 9:57 pm

    I encourage you Toke, keep it up, e no easy. However, you kinda remind me of michael jackson in this video. dont know why

  • Madam the Madam January 11, 2013 at 10:10 pm

    She’s not bad actually. Seems like she would be a cool chick, although I’ve heard plenty stories about her supposedly stank attitude. This was a decent vid.

  • Winny January 11, 2013 at 10:51 pm

    Ride on TOKE, if it pains you that the girl is hustling for a better life, HANG abeg

  • lolo January 11, 2013 at 11:59 pm

    I actually think she speaks well but her accent is so annoying. If she can give that up, she’ll be cool in my book.

    i honestly dont understand how some people can come here and say such hurtful things about someone they dont know. i dont know toke, av never met her. but some of the things said here are just out of line and plain wrong. shes not imposing herself on anyone, shes airing her own view. i jus wish people would stop being so mean and cynical .

  • Ade January 12, 2013 at 3:43 am

    Toke this is so mediocre though. How old are you. Talking abt “make sure you avoid those five types of people”…how mature r u???So highschool

  • Ema January 12, 2013 at 8:04 am

    u know how they say people are not really happy for you when you are trying ur best to make it well, since the invention of social media and comment space i now know what folks meant by that word. boy some people are so bitter about others it makes lime taste good, pls alot of all this Nigerians hating on other Nigerians trying to make it are the ones watching a ll the Ameriacn reality shows and loving all thier craziness. pls folks we need to take a chill pill and slow on all this hating, always remember what ur folks thought you ” if you don’t have anything good to say don’t say anything at all” tnks.

  • babious January 12, 2013 at 1:21 pm


  • Lover girl January 12, 2013 at 1:47 pm

    Lmfao but toke was born n raised in Nigeria she sounds funny! The sexiest thing is when a girl embraces her culture her way of life and our Nigerian accent embodies that! You don’t have to sound bush and uneducated with a Nigerian accent! Lol please the 5 reason are all pet peeves! I just don’t get it why can’t radio personalities in Nigeria remain behind the scenes!! We shouldn’t see u often! No business ethic stay behind the scenes

  • META January 12, 2013 at 5:22 pm

    Toke ,pls keep doing your thing.someday you will get your reward.pray GOD should deliver you from massive animosity people have for you.

  • 6785 January 12, 2013 at 7:39 pm

    Okay fine, she has a fake accent. But I am sure we are all fake in one way or another.So you all are going off on her for her acquired accent?But I am sure most of you are all rocking acquired hair. You are using your hard earned money to buy HAIR FROM ANOTHER HUMAN BEINGS HEAD.Is that not fake?If you were so real, you would be satisfied with the hair God gave you, you wouldn’t see the need to rock 20 inch brazillian,malaysian,polynesian and Kazakstan crap you sew on your head! So before you point a finger at someone be mindful of the 3 pointing back at you!

  • just blaze January 12, 2013 at 11:39 pm

    toke actually is very borin and uncreative….my own is she should leave mornin drive for my one and only nanya (my best radio oap ever)

  • Concerned Nigerian January 13, 2013 at 2:32 am

    I appreciate Toke’s efforts in doing something other than radio, however, it is not working presently. I believe there is a fundamental problem about the person. I listen to morning drive on Rythm and Toke always sounds shallow on the programme. She always act and speak like a “dumb blonde”. She needs to train and re-train herself, first as a successful presenter (or OAP as they call themselves now), before handling other projects that her beyond her core competencies. I wish her success in her endeavors though. Dont be another Tonto Dikeh. One is already too much for us in this country.

  • Xtelle January 13, 2013 at 1:59 pm

    Ms Makinwa, this is what a well spoken, enlightened, SMART Nigerian woman sounds like… pls, take a cue

  • Someone please listen to Chimamanda speak please January 13, 2013 at 11:37 pm

    OMG, all you Toke defenders, sit your ass down and listen to Chimamanda Adiche give a speech at the Commonwealth Lecture 2012.
    If you take the time to, shame will catch ALL of you defending Toke. That is an accomplished, globally known smart as whip NIGERIAN woman. Not this fake, air head, wannabe full of herself twat. Imagine Chimamanda saying how she used to pronounce bagel, bahgel. That is a woman confident in her own skin, that she can admit even mispronouncing some words, to such an audience. She is speaking in an ARTICULATE NIGERIAN ACCENT. Shey u Toke defenders, have anything to say for yourself, after watching that video. Mschew. Fakeness Anonymous. Brunay ko, Brunei ni. Toke, who can’t hold a candle to Chimamanda on ANY level, thinks the 9ja accent is not good enough, she’s faking accent. That accent is switching lanes so fast, it is faster than the Concorde on a Transatlantic flight. From America, to the UK, to Nigeria, in seconds. Mschew. EMPTY BARRELS MAKE THE MOST NOISE. Those who are saying Toke is just speaking properly, please watch this video and come back and tell me, Toke is speaking normally. Mschew

  • Adeori January 14, 2013 at 3:44 am

    ..I Have Never Heard Her radio Show Or Anything But Based On Comment Above,Talking About Her Accent and Whatnot..,people,Allow Now,Ki lo de!!!!!
    People Would Throw Stones At Things That Shine.

  • Sunshine January 14, 2013 at 8:42 pm

    This girl is very annoying, she speaks like an airhead and thinks she can get by with her fake extra long weave and overdone lipstick. She passes as one who is trying to hard….

  • pade January 20, 2013 at 3:42 pm

    Most stupidity question???????????????????????????????????????????????????????
