Toke Makinwa - Instagram - May 2013 - BellaNaija

On this week’s episode of Toke Makinwa‘s Vlog, the media personality shares an old message on relationships she posted on her Facebook page back in 2009.

In her message, she shared that a woman shouldn’t marry a man with kids, never tell him all your secrets as he will use it against you and you can’t change a man’s behaviour. Now she wants to know if these rules still count?

Check it out!

      As in the girl’s baffs are to die for! I didn’t listen to the video but I’m happy she’s improving. You go girl! But please don’t stop discussing the light hearted stuff… we need it as guilty pleasures… Topics to consider: Are women better in bed than men? How to handle first dates? How to create a lasting first impression? Saving yourself for marriage…is it all that its cut out to be? Will definitely like to hear about fashion, makeup ideas, improving your self confidence. Oh another one, what are the best makeout spots in Lagos? Light hearted biko *wink wink

      Hahahahaha!!! @jscgrl, your suggested topics are so wrong and yet, I’m thinking I just might click and listen if she did a totally outrageous vlog on “Are Women better than Men in bed”… 🙂 So far, I stopped watching after the one about “Beg Friends” (found it completely disparaging and self-glorifying) but I still click on the page to read comments and also, to see what she’s got on as she’s usually well put together…

    You see why criticism is good. Some shallow people will just bunch everyone together as haters. Toke listened to the tone of the comments of last week. Her video wasn’t the fluffy, air-head or will be suitable for 13 – 15yr old viewers type like the rest. So believe it or not she took those comments on board. Yeah yeah yeah it is an over flogged topic, but compared with the act of kissing or putting your friends into different boxes, this is a better step in the right direction and I commend you for this Toke. Not everyone is a hater. I’m happy for you that you got over yourself and listened. In fact I also want to extend some commendation to BN. Me personally, I have breathed a sigh of relief that no relationship, single, married talk, no comments pitting one team against the other posts from BN in about a week or two now, you guys too have listened to your readers. Well done.

    Her accent is clear and she reads very well.

    She can be a voice over on entertainment stuffs.

    I must say Toke is such a brilliant lady…she put the facts as it is…a relationship is personal and real…not a Hollywood movie or script…

    Dr phil…….Oprah…… europeans and americans approach marriage is different from the way we africans do……..where is oprahs marriage and the so called dr phils marriage………..poverty may be huge in africa but for for me we africans understand marriage and relationship better than the way they do………

      Yeah we have the right idea. It’s called suffering and smiling :p Your hubby bashes everything that moves or breathes and if you are lucky enough he might break your nose a few times. But hey, it’s not only you right? Offcourse! So what do you do? Manage and keep praying . . . Do us a favour Nich and write the book ” Stay married or die trying,” I betcha you’ll run Oprah and Dr Phil right out of business hun 😉

    Toke PR at work! Why all the soothing comments?

    • Naija talk

      May 17, 2013 at 8:37 pm

      Because she heeded the advice from comments on her previous vlogs, and decided on a different vlog topic this week. We have no qualms with this one. On a side note, quit thinking that every comment contrary to that of the “BN Bashers Club” is Toke’s PR at work. Some of us just view things differently.

    What is the video about as all she is doing is reading all what Dr Phil said on Oprah’s life class. You have to be an air head to follow what Dr Phil day’s literally, he is after all, a business person first and life coach second if his advises are anything to go by.
