    Wonderment!!! Please i just cant.

    • .....just saying

      February 28, 2013 at 3:15 pm

      lol! Dear Toke, you really need to work on your phonetics “THEY” not “DEY”, “THEM” not “DEM”. You’re an oap sweets, I know you can do better with your pronounciation if you put in some effort

    that skirt…why?

    • la belle

      February 28, 2013 at 12:34 pm

      to be honest, i don’t think the skirt is that bad. it’s the way she styles it. if the shirt was plain white , minimal jewelry and calmer makeup, it would have been quite nice. there’s just too much going on, dark eyes, bright lips, big earrings, ah. anyway, just my 2 cents, wetin consain me.

    One thing girl. 5 ways to stop attracting haters, how about that. For every action, there’s a equal and opposite reaction. There are on 9ja celebs people really like and love, even with their flaws, their voltrons will scatter you, if u dare say anything negative. Examples are TuFace, Don Jazzy, Mercy Johnson, Omotola etc. So those that have a multitude of haters, moreso than lovers, should ask themselves what they are doing that all they attract is haters. So, stop burying your head in the sand. Your side dig at internet haters, didn’t endear you to more people, and if u truly don’t send them at all, or u r not affected by their talk, u shouldn’t have mentioned them at all. You don’t give what you don’t care about, attention.

      Gbam!!! and please add Genevieve to that list…’Cause only me, I am Voltron, Captain Planet and all the Power Rangers rolled into one for that chick and there are many more of us were I came from…lol. and I know all about Gene’s old controversial gists that don’t align with my values and all oh!!
      But there something about the talent, class and a certain allure that all these folks you mention exude that just make people love them. Now, if I were Toke I would ask myself what is it these folks have that I aint got (maybe all of the above…maybe??)

      Wow, you are just as petty as she is. Statements like this comes from her and she suddenly wonders why she has haters. I tire o, I tire. I guess some people are just addicted to the drama. She must have invented that hairstyle

    • Chinwe

      March 1, 2013 at 12:20 pm

      Like she has a trademark for the hair style.

    February 28, 2013 at 12:22 pm

    Haba people, I totally enjoyed Toke’s video today , thou am not a fan of Toka (for no reason anyway) maybe because she has lots of all you haters so I followed put as omo naija now.

    But on this one, I must give it to her, she took to your advices and gave you the naija accent you want hanhan what else do u guys need Again. I enjoyed it sha and for once I smiled almost through out. And all her naughty crazy bit towards the end did it for me sha, it makes me view as being normal regular girl with ambition.

    Toke, I love you today and decided to stop following the crowd by haring for no reason but you too learn how to talk to your fans na! Hen that side Internet thing is true but it still directly insulting people. Behave yourself young woman and learn how to insult in a stylish way abeg not in a rude u hear?

    • Molly

      February 28, 2013 at 1:15 pm

      Same here really! I smiled all through ‘Cos all what she said makes sense after all. People should stop hating the girl

  11. Omojeje

    February 28, 2013 at 12:27 pm

    Sorry I noticed some errors.. Eg Toke not Toka,

    February 28, 2013 at 12:36 pm

    Can she stop addressing negative issues please. People already dont like her, she needs to move on to positive topics on maybe how to be an inspiring woman or something. Negativity is tired abeg.

    Toke has too much of the strong bone thing going on on her face. Adds 10 years . She looks 55 years old and exhausted.

  22. EfKay

    February 28, 2013 at 1:49 pm

    Hahaha!! I love how Toke dissed her internet haters. Maybe now that she has shown she doesn’t give a hoot, they will go and buy brain and leave her alone.

    • folu

      February 28, 2013 at 2:35 pm

      Actually she proved the opposite. By mentioning it, she gave herself away. Esp the fake accent thing. If she is not bothered why has her “accent” changed. Go listen to her first vlog, and compare with now. Sm1 is listening, and is not a very good actress, cos the bravado I don’t care, only her believes it. Lol lol lol

  23. jcsgrl

    February 28, 2013 at 1:53 pm

    Ha BN una too like look for trouble. If you want to annoy BN readers, just put a pic or story about Toke and all the ‘haters’ she just described descend like vultures on a carcass. Wetin dis girl do una? I don’t know her but I like her. She speaks well, beautiful and ambitious. She’s doing her thing and I celebrate her. And for you haters, the more you hate her, the more she becomes popular. Keep driving her to her destiny while you sit back and watch with your bitter selves. Ahn ahn!

    Thank God she dropped some of the ridiculously fake accent in this video. It made me enjoy the video a bit more!

    This chic is missing her calling. She needs to run fast and go act in a yoruba play. She’ll make a killing!!! Her mouth and face movement is made just for yoruba plays!

    You need to wear less makeup. You are a pretty lady; too much makeup just makes you look old than your age.
    Keep up the work – your blog is interesting.

  33. BlackMagic babe

    February 28, 2013 at 5:04 pm

    Now I see her dark knuckle!

  34. Adeola

    February 28, 2013 at 5:51 pm

    Am sorry, the makeup is getting too much, she looks way older than her age with it. A simple natural makeup look will do.the mix of all the colors ain’t doing Toke.

  35. xoxo

    February 28, 2013 at 6:28 pm

    i actually like this chic but I agree with some people…are pronunciations are always off. “A-KS” instead of “ASK”; “A-TA instead of “HATER”. Oh well, she’s still fun to watch

  36. Chichi O

    February 28, 2013 at 6:36 pm

    I like her. Simple. She may just have that certain ‘je ne sais quoi’ That keeps her on Autohate. But She seems to remain strong no matter what. Love her for it.

    February 28, 2013 at 7:02 pm

    God: My darling Toke, I would announce you to the world
    Tokstar: But father… i have no money for the media
    God: Dont you worry child… I will Recruit Gossips on your behalf
    Dang….and it came to past….

    • Amen somebody!

      February 28, 2013 at 7:37 pm

      Lwkm! I so love this comment….. Funny with a lil bit of truth. Toke u must find this Tatafo person and take him/her to lunch or something do u hear me???? LOL
      P.s: It’s…. And it came to ‘pass’ (but who d – cares?)

    • Amen somebody!

    Toke will make a great yourba actresss ohhhh…this is no yabs.Its just clear facts oh……but her dress sense needs to be worked on like seriously………………..i see her as a determined and ambitious lady also..Kudos but be more original.

  39. Mayowa

    February 28, 2013 at 11:51 pm

    Maybe it is just me… But I think she is just copying the Lolita girl…How to spot a fakerrr..

    February 28, 2013 at 11:54 pm

    . she looks good. i love the short hair, really working for her ( suits her face and petite body) i love the makeup. i love everything

    pls give those long weaves a break. they dont do you justice.

  41. doby

    March 1, 2013 at 7:02 am

    I actually agree. That she’ll make a fine yoruba actress

  42. mo

    March 1, 2013 at 8:23 am

    Toke pls , i’d rather you use the phonectis you were dropping occsaionally, ur foundation and powder is too much , stop bleaching ur skin no matter how expensive ur cream , we can see it, it will tell when ur old. Beauty is skin deep , embrace ur complexion, you do have a nice stature tho.

  43. reallyyyyyy!!!

    March 1, 2013 at 8:34 am

    fluctuating accent!

  44. what

    March 1, 2013 at 10:31 am

    to be honest i think shes getting more comfortable and acyually listens to what the commenters write…cos her accent isnt as bad as before

  45. Nigeriangurl

    March 1, 2013 at 11:46 am

    Dont u just love dis girl?
    LMAO!!! I do!
    Meanwhile, I read a lot of negative stuff bout dis babe……..but she just a normal babe doing her thing.
    By the way, she’s got lovely skin ( whether an Egyptian milk or Arabian butter) n I totally love her accent( even though I no know which country d accent emanate from) LOO

  46. Retrochic

    March 1, 2013 at 3:47 pm

    i dont just get her skin colour thou, is she bleaching

  47. Damisco

    March 1, 2013 at 6:53 pm

    One advice I’ll give to Toke Makinwa is this: Pray about your haters. Tell God to give you a heart to love them and tell God to help you through slanderous comments people make about you.

    The truth is if you’re not really pained by what your haters say about you, you won’t take the time to make this video. I think the more you keep quiet (apart from when you’re on radio, doing your job), the less people have to say about you. And also ask yourself, “why is everybody hating on me?” If you can check deep within yourself and you know there’s an iota of truth in what they say, why not effect changes, it won’t hurt you.
    Enough said!

  48. Shee

    March 1, 2013 at 10:47 pm

    @damisco, advice yourself instead of others. We have all got emotions and as humans we will be bothered when others say horrible things about one, even when we try to pretend like we are superman. I guess you would be worse if you were in her shoes. Anyway, Toke…some of us like you no matter the horrible comments people make…. I have also made my friends here like you.

  49. the truth is a bitter pill.

    March 1, 2013 at 11:30 pm

    I read the comments before I watched the video and was surprised. From the comments, I thought she said a lot of rubbish, only to watch the video and see that everything she said is not only on point, but that she was speaking generally. Naija people, sha!!! We sabi hate. That’s how people were commenting that Eku Edewor was star struck when she was talking to Kim and I watched the video only to see that she wasn’t. We need to chill with the hate. Trying to dim the next man’s (or in this case, woman’s) light cannot make your’s shine any brighter. We all have our paths to walk.

    Why is this girl trying so hard, she really has no talent, but hey, she’s hustling and I get that. I wonder, did she complete University?

    • Blake

      March 2, 2013 at 7:15 am

      And you are the one with talent. She has an Undergraduate and Masters degree. You would think the girl committed murder with the kind of hateful comments you and your other folks write. You are the same religious folks that will be going to church/mosque to pray. Meanwhile you spend your entire week thrashing one of Gods own. You guys never appreciate people until they pass away. It’s pretty sad. I thought the bible verse “the thief cometh to steal kill and destroy” was referring to the devil alone. But alas!!! This verse extends to all you bitter girls. Next time, you all go on your knees seeking God’s face, remember that you have demoralized one of his creatures. Next time you raise “holy” hands in church (or wherever it is that you worship), do not forget that you have crushed the spirit of another.

      Karma is not a bitch. It is a biblical law…”you reap what you sow”. In the future when you have burning coals heaped on your heads, remember that you did the same to this girl.

    I don’t even know this chick but she’s entertaining. Okay the accent used be all over the place before. However, on this occasion she kept it real. She listened to your criticisms and made some changes. Toke darling, keep it up and keep entertaining us. By the way, the advice is a bit tongue in cheek so don’t read too much into it – its just entertainment!

    Nice video! Thanks for sharing Toke! Keep up the good work.

    March 3, 2013 at 11:59 pm

    DANG…Nigerians are nasty. Why na? This girl just wants to share stuffs with ya’ll. Give her a break. I think she looks really pretty. Leave her alone. And you Toke, forget all them haters. Do your vlog. The truth is that these people will keep reading. See Kim kardashian, i don;t like her but I always find myself looking for stories on Kimmy K.

  54. NYchic

    March 10, 2013 at 7:51 pm

    the ‘hating’ on Toke is unbelievable. Girlfriend is doing her thing, hustling and trying to make a name for herself in showbiz. You go girl!
