      I wish she did this 7 -8 years earlier. It would have saved me a lot of heart ache. It’s good to know the term to finally use for that idiot. And I was warned but NO, I decided to play “Jesus” in her life. I’ve never seen anything like that before in my life. Friend -hopper of life. Beg friend of LIVES. Destroyer of friendship. No boundaries!! I’m almost angry all over again. Nonsense.

      Thank you for this Toke. I’m one of those that don’t pay you many compliments but you made sense with this one. So well done.

      Ha, it’s not hard now. My friend”s boyfriend did it for her and her then best friend. Trust igbo boys na! He got them tickets, visa money, everything for them to travel from the US to London. Plus it’s not that expensive depending on the time of the year one is traveling and all.

    • Tiki

      April 11, 2013 at 4:22 pm

      It happens. I know it happens because I’ve been on both ends, gf and friend ends. You’ll be surprised (or maybe you shouldn’t be) at the things men will do to please/impress women.

      Plus it doesn’t cost anything to get a visa na. All you need from the guy is visa fee, hotel booking which doesn’t cost a thing, and a bank statement. So the guy can do it for less than he would spend if he took you and your girlfriend out for the day on a Saturday.

The internet ladies and gentlemen, where sad spiteful people like to put others down just so they feel that little better about themselves. The hate on this girl is so much, i can’t deal. X out of the article, if you do not like her. Leave the girl alone. And yes i said it, call me Toke PR, so be it. All i know is, this is cyber bullying and no one should have to go through that.

    As for me i luv Toke, she’s got a lovely voice and accent, tho i quite agree that she’s got a big opon(forehead)and sld pray to God neva to get bald. But wot she said is plain reality even tho it doesn’t apply to evry1 out there.There are evil hearted people as there are good hearted people. So pls peeps stop hating and be real.

    • reallyyyyyy!!!

      April 12, 2013 at 10:03 am

      Tell Toke to get real with her accent first, The truth is always bitter buh you just gotta listen.

    April 11, 2013 at 5:10 pm

    Wow, all I can say is wow! Some of you who comment on BN are just mean spirited that’s all. She speaks in one accent – problem, she speaks razz – problem. Some of you lot are just plain mean mean mean….. You have insulted her personality, that’s not enough for you, you’ve resorted to her features. I mean what’s this about a big forehead, bleached skin, etc. Why are some of you so evil?
    I know I will be called a member of the Toke PR team. Please I do not know Toke from Adam and I doubt our paths ever crossing as we are not in the same region. I don’t even agree with some of her previous vlogs; I could easily have taken offence at the married women/single women debate because I am married, but I did not. Life is really not that serious to get your panties in a knot over nothing.
    What am I saying really? Quit attacking people unnecessarily; a simple Toke I disagree with substantiating points would suffice. All this name calling et al is just not helping. Guys let’s be civil to one another please. Are these the same people that go to the Mosque on Friday or Church on Sunday to pray?

      Yes These are the same people that go to Church or Mosque. They are the same ones that will be raising their hand to God in church after dehumanizing one of Gods own. I wouldn’t even go close as to calling them Christians or Muslims. They are more like religious people because I am pretty sure the Bible or Quran doesn’t agree with any of these. I know a lot of Atheist that do a better job of treating other human beings right. Gandhi said “I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.”

    Ahhh I don’t know what u guys are seeing o, but for me I really enjoyed this video, Toke was really relaxed and funny which is great, I used to be one of those ppl that joined the ‘I can’t stand toke mackinwa’ bandwagon (shamefully so I might add cus I didn’t even know the babe to make such silly judgments lol) however these her videos show she is just a regular fun loving chick just doing her thing? What’s there to hate ???

    Toke I really enjoyed this video was actually laughing out loud you are very entertaining, well done mama, keep them coming.

    Why is the sight of this girl annoying some ppl? If you don’t like her stop clicking on her features or bothering to comment. But yet week after week your dry, skeletal hands will drag your mouse and click on her feature and then proceed to key your strokes on keyboard. Na wa o! You really give a lot of attention to some1 you don’t love. Plus you can’t tell BN what or what not to post. Tufiakwa!

Only naija people woudl know real or fake accent…and please if you dont like Toke….DONT WATCH HER VIDEOS PERIOD. I mean its not like she begged you to watch it in the first place.

    If you want to know what beg friends is. GBAGAUN. “friendS” and “is” Aunty ooooo. Phoneh + gbagaun is the worst kind. We take offence when guys calls us b***ches and Hoe’s yet we girls call each other such. Toke, please. I heard that line and my eyebrows raised higher than those inverted Nike ticks you drew on your forehead. Rihanna also has a prominent forehead, but her makeup doesn’t immediately draw attention to it. If a guy calls you that even jokingly, you won’t find it funny. Mschew. The story, no get head or tail or in between. Toke, for someone who is a professional social climber, hypocrisy looks great on you. Take several seats abeg. Beg friend ko, beg friends ni. Look at yourself in the mirror first and all the ass licking you’ve done to move in so called high circles and stay relevant. You now feel like what, you are above all that, you are v-loging about it. I can’t even laugh sef

    April 11, 2013 at 5:48 pm

    I hate these types of stories and i actually take it quite personal. Toke i’m not happy with you at all. My best friend in high school didn’t have much. We argued one day and someone actually suggested she couldn’t believe the girl would fight with me when I had so much money. Ehn so she shouldn’t have mouth because I’m the money friend? that’s just wrong. On through life, i see many instances of us teaching our kids and others that those who have less than us are only around us because they want what we’ve got. That’s why some married women think their single friends want their man. It’s that same mentality. Check your self esteem. Now still watch out for bad friends and do things with common sense. Amaka could have introduced Tolu to another “rich” friend. It really made no sense to take her on what should have been an intimate trip with her boyfriend. She could have sponsored her to a different country. And just one thing, if he believe silly reports that you are a prostitute, then Tolu did you a favor by taking him away. Maybe you should go for his friend that was honest with you about what was going down

  43. Es

    April 11, 2013 at 5:52 pm

    People can just be objective without insulting the lady and her features and her accent. She’s trying to be funny and that’s why she switches up the accents and I love that. I have had people come into my life because of what they knew I could do for them so this story is a home run. Instead of insulting the girl, why not tell her what you agree with or don’t agree with. I believe we can all be civil citizens here. And no, I don’t know Toke and I don’t agree with all her vlogs or like all of them.

    I can bet that a lot of the people that ‘hate’ the video haven’t actually watched it and are just jumping on the Toke Bash Bandwagon! Guys seriously, no one forced you to watch it. You guys are the same people that were repentant when Goldie died but you have returned to your old ways. If you cannot criticize constructively then DON’T! Haba! Is it by force to hate?!

I suspect you all cannot stomach how far she has come and how she is no longer in your category abi, it must hurt to see her make headlines and even more so to watch her videos. ouch i feel your pain she. this is a blessed child of God

    April 11, 2013 at 6:29 pm

    You don’t like Toke’s vlog automatically you must be jealous. That level of low mental capacity or IQ is astounding. Anyway the internet is free, and easy to use, not much brain power involved. Those writing such comments, or if it is one person, clap for yourself. You have just won the Darwin award of the year. If you are her PR machine or friend, I suggest you take classes in Public Relations, because your naivety on how to run such business borders on childishness. Do you think we are all teenagers? In my best American teenager voice, they don’t like toke, they don’t like Toke, they are jealous, flipping your weave and walking away. I’m not a fan of Tonto Dike for example, so it means I’m jealous of her. Yikes, I can’t even wrap my head around such analogy. Some people need to Google the word jealous o. For a Media Personality or whatever she calls herself using the B word and the H word is a No No. Her PR Machine, please inform her, because your job seems to be one tracked. She can’t use such words even on a personal blog if she worked abroad. I check out her videos sometimes on BN to see if she will redeem herself. I believe everyone can change or improve, but it seems as if she just courts the attention, negative or otherwise, so I won’t add to it.

      April 12, 2013 at 11:00 pm

      The point people have been making here is that the comments here are mean spirit and dehumanizing. You dont have to like her vlogs.Hating her blog doesnt make you a hater. But people constantly bashing her is wrong, plain wrong!!

    April 11, 2013 at 6:31 pm

    Nawa o! Toke has alot of makeup on; yes, but to say she’s ugly or hideous?… For real, please let us be objective here, she’s very far from it.

    Anywho, as for the situation being discussed; there is nothing more painful than to find out someone you trusted and you thought was all for you, went on to do such a thing. I can only imagine how the lady in question is hurting and how betrayed she probably feels right now.
    Nonetheless; she needs to be wise and see this as a learning curve.
    She shouldn’t waste her time or breath on such a useless person, that girl is really not worth trying to revenge, and when the time comes karma will repay Tolu for her deeds. Right now her focus should be on herself and her child. She should try; at least to speak to the guys’s friend again and have him talk to homeboy about what went on. If he still refuses to listen and still doesn’t want anything to do with his child, let her now run far far away from that girl and move on with her life as soon as. Women like that are complete poison and will bring nothing but more heartache.
    It’s such a shame he didn’t look into the rubbish he was being told (some men can be so block headed), but then again he’s probably taken Tolu’s word for it because they were suppose to be so close.

    Wow! Some women of today though. Instead of finding ways to cover and protect each other this is what some think to do.
    To just run down another woman so casually, so easily, especially while pretending to be her good friend, without a second thought; one that even went out of her way to help you is the epitome of evil. God will deliver us from the hands of modern day jezebels; I swear.

    I am in total agreement with jcsgrl,NONYA, Ngozi and ada…you really dont have to watch the video. There is so much Toke hate going on meanwhile the girl is going many people sabi una. A lot more below the belt is dissing her forehead. Did she create herself or did she ask for those genes. Haba peeps be constructive in all your criticism.

    I guess you can’t be friends with someone who is ‘below your level’.And what exactly do you use to measure your level huh? From Tokes video all the examples she made were about material things(nice hair,nice make up, nice shoes etc) . I think all these things are just superficial. So what if you lose all these nice things it means other people shouldn’t befriend you right?
    I have been watching Tokes videos and she is just too shallow for me.A bad person would always be a bad person whether they are rich or poor.So Toke is saying that rich friends can’t betray each other?
    I think for you to find true friendship just watch out for the depth of character in people. Even me, I have different kinds of friends for different purposes.I have friends I can engage in intellectual discussions with, I have friends that we only share funny stuff, I have friends that I trust and will always be here for, I even have friends that all we do is to discuss stuff on Bella Naija.
    And the very few ones(2) I can share everything with, I call my best friends. In all my friendship I have never been bothered on whether my friends are on the same level with me in terms of material things. I just find what we have in common and what makes us connect and the friendship starts from there. All the while I’m always observing them to know the kind of people they are ..that is all

      So my point is its not about what you have/don’t have. At the end of the day just try and be a good person to your friends and also open your eyes to choose good people as your friends

      God bless you for this comment. i dont know what is wrong with this generation… the only thing we know is her, shoe, bag, car what is it…… that is why some girls will go to great length to see that she is seen as a high class babe and not a “beg friend” when watching the video, the one thing crossing my mind was wow! so any girl that for instance wears her natural hair, doesn’t know designers, and doesn’t have money automatically is a “beg friend”. anyway the truth is it didnt start from Toke sha, just imagine when that girl in ur office is just trying to be nice to you and u give her a lift every time car, and she wants to be ur friend, in ur head u think her it is because of my car. but Toke wait ooooo do you know u can be called beg friends by some people…. imagine u want to be friends with Genevieve Nnaji, dont u think she would group u “common radio presenter” in beg friend association. Please be carefully when u classify people. “you cud have simply said good friends and bad friends”.
      It even reminds me of a story that happened years ago, my cousin had this friend whom according to toke’s classification is a beg friend, but damn this girl was fine sha, one of our family friends really liked this girl oh asin he was crazy about her, but my yeye cousin was just causing obstruction, me sef i didnt understand why, not knowing my cousin had eyes for our family friend
      and she had a serious boyfriend oh. notwithstanding all her bad mouthing the girl, the guy took d bold step went after the girl, omo! he changed her life, helped her secure a fantastic job, she had almost anything she wanted, she was even driving a better car than my cousin, my cousin wanted to die sha……. we took it as an in house joke. but do you know she took it to the extent of the boy’s mum. it was bad sha but d guy stood his ground and married the girl. the thing is anybody can be a bad friend rich or poor.

      I had to force myself to watch it with an open mind to give a constructive feed [email protected], Princess @ Sel, I love you guys comments………… I like Toke cos she is fine (dont want to say “beautiful” and i will be attacked), she did not give a clear description of a “beg friends” if not “high class ashewo” reaping where they did not sow…….in short i tire for the tori. I pity none of them
      As for Toke, babe i beg you to just relax and think of something creative and original to come up with rather than this shallow topics for girls who are not matured…………..

    April 11, 2013 at 9:37 pm

    this doesnt sound so fair when people segregate. Being born rich is not a situation anyone can choose but learning to take people as they are may go a long way in lifting others up. Theres absolutely nothing wrong when you are friends with someone a little financially challenged. who can extrapolate the future? no one. thats the reason we are jaw-dropped when we see old school mates doing well. A little more humility and acceptance that class is just a vain thing would go a long way……..i dont like the use of “amaka is a big girl and tolu a bootlicker”

    April 11, 2013 at 9:53 pm

    Me,I no longer watch her videos I find them forced and shallow. I check the comments and minus bashing the reviews are mostly poor.

  63. sherri

    April 11, 2013 at 10:11 pm

    the cause of Amaka’s predicament is “beg friend”?
    not because it was bad judgment to have unprotected sex ? what about stds?
    not because she is a poor judge of character as clearly shown by her choice of friends?

    Ladies, we are way too smart to reason like this.

    April 11, 2013 at 11:35 pm

    I still do not understand the concept of going out of your way to be friends with a fellow being solely for the purpose of mere materialistic things.Anyway in this case,i don’t think “beg friends” is the main issue here…its just the fact that the so called “amaka” should have been wiser by not creating so much room for such nonsense…u know what they say about too much familiarity.
    Moving on to the crucifixion of toke…can people chill? This is not the national assembly where she has to talk about political issues…i dont think there’s any magnetic reaction forcefully dragging y’all against your will to this post.So please bounce!….*drops mic*…One more thing,research shows that 80 percent of those who call others ugly are the ones who have the most self esteem issues…*drops mic again*

    @ jcsgrl April: Why is the sight of this girl annoying some ppl? If you don’t like her stop clicking on her features or bothering to comment. But yet week after week your dry, skeletal hands will drag your mouse and click on her feature and then proceed to key your strokes on keyboard. Na wa o! You really give a lot of attention to some1 you don’t love. Plus you can’t tell BN what or what not to post. Tufiakwa!

    Your comment is the best so far and had me laughing so, so hard!

    Toke, I have to tell you this cos I love you. You are not inspired to keep these video blogs. THey are not compelling and the content is degrading. which one is beg friend? This is a one sided look at life. If you have a beg friend that fits the description you have provided, then you are insecure and need “hangers on”, which is what we over here call beg friends. confident busy babes with direction, focus and work to do don’t attract beg friends.

  69. mujer casada

    April 12, 2013 at 12:14 am

    And it seems like all your friends talk about is “bag shoes and looks”. Don’t you small brains talk current affairs? things are falling apart around y’all. This is so lightheaded and its embarrassing – Paris Hilton level.

    April 12, 2013 at 12:17 am

    @princess – THANKS for your comments. I don’t know how people will spend the precious minutes we have basing a friendship on knowledge of shoe, bag and dead people’s hair designs. I rock those things and love em, don’t get me wrong but I only talk about them when deciding whether to buy or not. BTW, my conversations about such trivia are with sellers of merchandise. This is why the country is going to hell.

    *sigh* my heart cries for you and all i feel for you is pity
    I got to know you from the internet -LIB -when you said she was a ‘gossiper’. Prior to that I didnt know you or listened to your radio shows ( I still do not) maybe cos I am not a radio person, so I do not know you enough to hate you or anything.
    From your videos of ‘how to spot a hater’ to ‘married women syndrome’ and now this one on beg friends only point out to one thing-SELF ESTEEM. Toke, from the look of things you may be having low self esteem, yes, inferiority complex. You come across as territorial, always trying to not allow anyone steal your shine. It just has to be about you and something or somebody.
    How do u tag one who gives or likes ur sense of style maybe a beg friend or ?

  72. kilipot

    April 12, 2013 at 1:22 am

    You video is just so chilidish that I am dissapointed. Dissapointed not in you but in the are so vain and materialistic that it hurts.
    When did material things become a prerequisite for friendship? So that one is naive or a giver is now an indicator of being a beg friend. I am getting you. Anyway really it takes one to know one. Maybe you ‘adorn’ urself with weaves and shoes and bags and makeup and all that just so u ll hide ur insecurities and blend in with the happening peeps in town, or maybe update videos just so people ll like you by all means. A bad friend will always be a bad friend regardless of their financial,fashion or societal status, so pls quit all these
    You may actually be that beg friend, or hater or the intimidated single friend ( cos it looks like you are always the one on the receiving end) . Check it,for it takes one to really know one.

    @ Sherri, I was about say that same thing.. shhh..
    Amaka, you are just as Beyonce would say ” ratchet!” having sex with bf w/out protection or birth control. Why? you desperate? It simply does not add up, why take your g-friend on an intimate trip? for where dey do that one? are you 16 yrs. old? y’all both sound suspect! Tolu play’d you.. but you know what, any child is a gift from God. Dont even sweat Tolu, na you she follow, cant expect her to make better decisions either, sm. #igotaheadche# #9jamoviescript#

    Ok, some of the comments were mean, leave the Toke girl alone.. ok she is not the prettiest, so what! close your eyes and listen…lol.. anyways Toke hon, 2 criticism; 1. you should have replayed that vid before posting it.. the nose, the nose.. lol.. 2. don’t be calling people “beg” friends without reviewing the story properly. everyone has technically being a beg friend, someone got to pull someone up, shhh..
    ..Toke, don’t be discourage, pretty?!? who gives a hoot? “what does pretty got to do with anything…” keep working on your craft! we aint all pretty! i like your confidence sha, and its a public forum, you dont need everyone approval, and i think we all learned something from everyones input.

    April 12, 2013 at 11:58 am

    Hmmm, if Amaka was such a happening babe, why couldn’t she afford tickets on her own. Tolu was just a bad friend, and I don’t get d beg. Friend inside oh. This video doesn’t address adult issues or the issue of avoiding bad friends in a mature way. And the way Toke added the “hello I’m in london” bit na wa.
    I’m avoiding to be negative but girl, your topics are not helpful at least for anyone above 18, read atoke’s article and learn how to present issues in a mature way. I wish you all the best sincerely, but maybe you shld just stick to radio, we are fine just seeing you on the red carpet.
    PS: I watched the video cos I was actually hoping it would be good.

    Mehn you commentors are vicious. Didn’t any of you watch Denrele’s interview on Goldie. How you Nigerians promised to stone the poor girl cause of her comportment on BBA but then you all started crying when she died. These folks are human, celebrity or not. Be kind to them. They are bold showing their faces on TV. Please for the love of God be kind. I’m not a Toke fan but at the same time I don’t think she deserves all these unnecessary insults. mtchew.
    Besides this vlog is not about her, it’s about the girl whose beg friend snatched her boyfriend. If any of you had any sense you will be contributing solutions for Amaka’s situation.
    On that note, Toke, I think Amaka should plan with Kenny’s friend to get four of them together in a room i.e Tolu, Kenny, Amaka and Kenny’s friend. That’s the best way. Also, if Tolu’s parents are involved it will make sense. No need killing or pouring acid. Nobody wins!

    BN you guys do an amazing job in balancing the kind of post you put out here daily. You know what’s funny and ironic: It’s the fact that some of you give so much attention to someone you supposedly can’t stand and don’t like. From the comments : I would think some of you were forced to click on the post and you weren’t. Some of you are looking for intellectual articles: BN does a good job of posting some intellectual articles and they barely get any comment or support from any of you. But when there is a wedding post: In just 3 hours there will be like 100 comments. Just this week there was a post about Rape which is basically like an epidemic in Nigeria now : How many comments did it get — 15. There was also an educational and domestic violence article: How many comments did it get — Maybe 20. From those comments did anyone ask the question how can I contribute or help domestic violence victims — Zero. Then you all go whining like children and cry babies on a post about Tonto Dike or Toke Makinwa that you need more intellectual posts. The few that BN posts; how many of you contribute to it — OH i forgot some of you are waiting for the next wedding articles. That’s the only time you would see people praying.
