    Well said Toke. I’ll never forget the day I caught a SW Governor and his Married mistress at an hotel in New York. I was shocked at who SHE was. (Don’t ever believe all these women ranting about they’ve got married tips for single ladies/selling rubbish books they don’t believe in. It’s all a lie and only GOD knows and sees the truth.

    True talk! Tolu dtas not the issue plssss

    Agreed with everything she said. The grass does look greener on the other side! Our insatiable appetite for more often destroys us in the end. Sometimes it’s best to pause and focus on the positives of the person you’re with. It’s only in the event that the negative outweigh the positives that walking away becomes the better option. We must always remember that we ourselves aren’t perfect and acknowledge our partners are with us because they see te good attributes in us. Truth is when another person’s relationship seems perfect then be happy for them but limit the longer throat affecting you lol like toke says, you don’t know what’s really happening between the other two 🙂

    i think the best way to watch this is to actually mute the video and watch her facial expressions so so hilarious xx

    • madman

      July 18, 2013 at 2:20 pm

      Just did that and I just died from laughter… too funny!!! Actually I noticed that she has a big forehead. Imagine how she looks like without any weave.

    • me

      July 18, 2013 at 2:35 pm

      Funny!!!!!!!!! A face made for radio.

      July 18, 2013 at 6:11 pm

      This Toke is just mad…[email protected] her facial expressions and choice of words. Absolutely hilarious. Even though I’ve seen funnier stuff from her. Anyways, someone I know, needed to hear this. Again, I might add.

    July 18, 2013 at 2:32 pm

    She made some great points. 🙂

    July 18, 2013 at 2:35 pm

    I liked this one, it was short, straight to the point, and true.

    I think that on some level, Toke takes our comments on board, because I really think she’s eased up on the accent business, and that’s great.

    She will go far.

  22. Alero

    July 18, 2013 at 2:41 pm

    I really enjoy Toke moments. I observe that a lot of editing is done on the video (a lot of cuts here and there), Its pretty distracting. Pls pay attention to that.

  23. Hian!

    July 18, 2013 at 3:32 pm

    By some weirdness (sic), I have actually started looking forward to Toke’s “nonsense”.
    And you’ve got to give it to the girl, she’s got Leather for Skin. #thatsall

    • Yupp

      July 18, 2013 at 7:09 pm

      * Continuation: #smh people would be too fast to drop all sort of negative comments for any slight controversy but can’t just take the time out to appreciate what’s good. I rest my case here.
