Last week, Toke took a very serious turn with her vlog; talking about “5 things you can never prepare for”. From growing up to finding love to death and a cheating partner, check out what Toke says.

    Bellanaija I expect you to be on top of the news. We just lost an icon, a literary genius, the father of African literature and you are uploading Toke Makinwa.

      As for Toke, I agree with a lot of what she said in both vids.

    The vlog giving answers to those emails was funny sha. Although I don’t agree with checking your Bf’s phone.

    Hmmmm…I personally think you should tell your man about the abortion especially if you’re getting married…if you dont the doctors may tell and that mega yawa for you.

    Dont check your man’s phone either except you have reasons to suspect him..Why do you want to give yourself High blood pressure anyways!

    I hear Toke is engaged… so is your relationship a game? take a rain check pls.

    @Bolanle …Doctors are not to disclose any info to a partner or family members unless he or she is told to do so even if the wife does not have uterus but Nigeria medical lack so many ethics that anyone just says anything anyhow.When it comes to relationships,there are things a partner should never having a kid and never disclosing it or an abortion..that could ruin a lot of things.And going through a guy’s phone can put you in a lot of trouble cos you might read a message you dnt even know how the real fact about it in the first place.

    Liked both VLOG’s actually . She is definitely improving , but please Toke don’t allow Omalicha in the room next time!!!!

    Oh and as for those still contemplating spilling or not about a past abortion, you better don’t spill, DON’T TRY IT!

    dont spill about the abortion! somethings should be between you and yourself!

    Totally disagree with both answers and I think she’s trying to be contrary, and this cause a controversy. On well, if you think relationships are a game, and you just need to win, aka get in, aka marriage, then the advice is good for you.

      Gbam! I agree with you 150%… Going into a relationship with the mindset that its a game is a recipe for disaster on its own. To each their own sha! Maybe I’m a lil’ ol’ school…

    Also on the abortion thing, at first i was like wtf Toke Makinwa, are you mad. How can you say that?! but now I think about it, she’s actually right. i don’t think the girl should go around telling anyone she’s dating wether or not she had an abortion. “Being Serious” is a relative term. Now, there’s a point you get in a relationship where you both have aired dirty laundry and you’re still going strong. Leverage that. When you get to the point where you’re 100% positive this guy will stick with u no matter what, then its time to tell him. I 100% agree about the phone thing. You’re a grown woman so please treat whatever you find with dignity but don’t be a malu or sheep. God gave you wits for a reason. Better put them to good use or stay being a doormat for any guy.

    There is no point checking his phone… Ladies pls be sensitive, there re other positive ways u can know if u r his #1 other than going thru his privacy(phone) and getting ur heart into BIG trouble. Anyone can always cheat, so just be careful and let God lead u thru.

    I wont check his phone kini. Abeg, leave that matter. People lie, everybody lies, moi inclusive. Lol. So, girls, snoop away. Maybe its because I’m a control freak, who likes staying on top of things, and I hate surprises. I prefer to see things coming, then I decide if its right for me or not. Not that i’ll have the rug pulled out from under me and I’ll be devastated. In this world, you are the only one that can protect yourself o. You and your Maker. So don’t be caught sleeping. Check the bloody phone, check his house too mehn, when you are alone in his house. The things I’ve come across mehn, have saved me A WHOLE BLODDY LOT. One thing I don’t do is confront the guy, no siree, I have more dignity than that. Besides, you have no high ground to stand on, even in court sef. Information obtained by snooping without a warrant cannot be used in court. Lol. Once I see, I decide what I will do. Mostly, it has been to nicely find my exit, if wetin i see no sweet me for body. As for the abortion thing, tell kini. Do you know how many married women with babies in their husband’s house that have had abortions, even multiple sef. Please o, you had a past, you’ve moved on. It should be between you and your Maker. Daz all

      yes oh! I agree with you on nicely finding your exit….Happened to me once, I found out a BF was cheating on me with multiple chicks….how do you begin to argue your case abeg?? so I just randomly broke up with his a** without warning, no need to get confrontational abeg…homeboy kept calling, texting and FB messaging wondering what went wrong…he told my friends I am a crazy girl…In my mind I was thinking..”I’d rather you see me as crazy girl than an heartbroken one…I won’t give you that pleasure!!”

    @Linda.. flunctuating? dictionary please.. its fluctuating! a fluctuating accent means nothing.. people who have lived elsewhere and are also Nigerian, do this a lot.. infact, Germans, Russian, Italianss for example speak differently when speaking English and their native dialect.. As an older lady, I expect more of you than to come on a blog and pick itsy bitsy holes..

  34. Mama mia!!!

    March 26, 2013 at 2:45 pm

    Please is Toke part of the Bella naija team? Btw, I see she used this her vlog to win back her boo talking to him indirectly…

  35. Peperempe

    March 27, 2013 at 2:50 pm

    Nigerian men are in trouble! See women hiding abortions up and down! Father take control…..
