      If she did then about half of the comments will have the same avatar icon even if she changed her name. I guess you didn’t think about that

    Nice one dear. Totally agree esp with the people who come to the cinema and prevent others from enjoying the movie.

    omg the people that talk at the cinema <<<<<<. I once had a date, fine boy, great prospects, and me being a movie person decided we should go see one. Greatest mistake! He kept on talking all thru the movie, commenting about the movie we were all watching and screaming yea! did you see what that guy just did?! of course i can see!! we can all see!! i wanted to disappear cos people kept on staring wondering who the noise maker was 🙁

    Toke, shut up, just shut up, okay. I used to kind like you, but these days you are getting on my nerves with your peacock self. As a lady, one of the things you should have is compassion for the less privileged, and if it is missing from your qualities your are nothing but an empty duffle bag. You have a job and you get invited to some parties you think you have arrived, therefore you have the right to make fun of unemployed Nigerians that are fighting hard everyday to make ends meet. Why are you making fun of people that do not have jobs and the little things they do to keep from going totally insane in that out of control country? Is it b’cos you’ve got a job? your country Nigeria have tons of youth that are out of school that need jobs but no one is hiring them. Whoever said that the term TGIF is meant to be celebrated by people with jobs? Look at your mouth that pronounces “T.G.I.F.” you sef, when did you learn about the term, isn’t it not just yesterday from ppl from jand and yankee. Stop being silly girl and show some feeling for people, you could lose that job of yours that is giving you hot head any day, so do not let it get into your head Ms. “Media Personality”.

      This sounds like you Toke. Go and work.

    • Rhoda

      May 24, 2013 at 4:56 pm

      The genuinely unemployed or the ones sleeping with men for money to ‘make ends meet’? Toke just stated some hard facts *pet peeves*…learn from them and change your ways.

    • vee

      May 24, 2013 at 8:40 pm

      On point! I thought it was very insulting as well, like those young graduates have the jobs in their hands. Toke abi whatever her name is…… should employ them, since she thinks she has arrived.

    …and one of the things you do that get on my nerve (even though I don’t give a hoot) is that you failed to expose ur own lapses or don’t u have any. It is called creativity toke. Nevertheless you seem like a nice person.

    Laugh Out Loud–I agree with most of your pet peeves, Toks. the one that annooooys me is the way some people eat like their fighting with their food (horrific visual and sound effects included lol), then food falls out of their mouths and if the food is chillisome (lol 🙂 ) then kata will start running down their noses. Like urrgh, they make you want to abstain from food o and convince you by the way they eat that life without food won’t be so bad lol (until hunger strikes, then you get over it lol)

  31. yo!

    May 25, 2013 at 2:04 am

    its sip and not zip

  32. Jay

    Hello toke, it’s the “number of people” not “amount of people”. So mind your grammar and thank me later.

    Nice video,although I found the early part of the video a little insensitive,maybe you could have chosen your words more carefully

  34. labelle

    May 25, 2013 at 9:27 am

    After watching several videos, there is no consistency, no substance (even in light topics and jest, not looking for bible interpretion or anything) just all over the place. This video was just purely juvenile and quite bitchy. Ugh! I don’t know her a person and please this is not hating, I applaud her hustle, but these videos are just inconsistent and all over the place. Just my 2 cents that doesn’t really matter in the world.

  35. labelle

    May 25, 2013 at 11:07 am

    Know her as a person*

  36. fashionandstylepolice

    May 25, 2013 at 1:49 pm

    Lol.. Funny girl. That cinema chatting stuff is so true and so freaking annoying. It happens only in Nigeria.

    • Jay

      May 25, 2013 at 2:05 pm

      Where else have been? People talk, smooch do worse things not just in naija!

    • Babe

      May 26, 2013 at 6:51 am

      Don’t mind her,people like her always look for ways to talk down on Naija.

    Toke, don’t forget that majority of Nigerians never had and still dnt av the opportunity u had living abroad, hence, don’t condemn Nigerians with their locality. Even if ur trying to seek attention socially, mind how u criticize ur fellow brothers and sisters cuz that is the way they know to live it (life). The present situation in Nigeria is depressing and pls, respect humans, leave them to act the way they want to cuz they are happy about it. Iv seen a lot of attitudes in public that looks odd to me, but I don’t criticise at worse, I could only laugh about it , WHY? Cuz if they had the opportunity of being able to identify how humans should compose themselves, trust me, 3/4 of Nigerians would have known these things opportunities like being brought up abroad, good education, secured job, etc.
    Above all, looking at it from ur perspective, I understand what u mean, but u should have put this in the right way without showing it to the world that they are annoying. BESIDES, NO MATTER HOW PORSCHE U ARE, U STILL GAT UR WAKE PART TRUST ME.

  38. Diva

    May 26, 2013 at 10:29 am

    She didn’t live abroad oh in fact she can identify with the statement she loathes so much “started from the bottom ” now she’s here ! CLAP FOR HER

  39. lilly

    May 26, 2013 at 2:13 pm

    @Diva…I know it’s u Toke, whether u lived abroad or not, u were still opportune to travel there right? So don’t defend yourself here.
