      Tomorrow the Toke girl will start giving “relationship” advise…trying to remove the speck in others’ eyes when there’s a log the size of an iroko tree hanging from hers. Check am, a child that was born when you guys started out, is nearing puberty, and you are still wasting time beating about the bush. Wake up and smell the coffee girl, this guy is DEFINITELY not that into you.

      I just get pissed at your myopic comments and it oozes frustration from your own lifes most times…she was about 17 wen they started dating and its possible d guy isnt that much older than her;if they think they haven’t gotten to where they wanna be b4 marriage,its their bizness and at least they are nearing it gradually….Na wa for show biz life o, wher every idiot just thinks they have an opinion about you even when they don’t know you.

    Walahi she tried. Dating a guy for 11year? That’s equivalent as getting married now! And still now, no child(ren), cos the guy would hv stopped using condom now. Not even an engagement ring on that finger? She tried oo. So the guy has been enjoying free food for the past 11yrs??? Like seriously? It still baffles me though. No hard feelings trust me but omotoke, u tried..

    • Chic

      August 19, 2013 at 3:31 pm

      WTF???? Nigerians are the biggest bunch of losers on this earth!WTF does it have to do with you if they use condoms or not. I mean, seriously our society is totally F-ed….see how we are so quick to comment on someone else’s private life. I’m sure you have virtually nothing happening in your own life hence your need to use your brain energy on Toke’s relationship. KMFT!!!!!

    Please stop it with the cow and milk analogy, unless you think you’re a cow giving milk then go ahead. Abi she no go like it? If she was getting it for 11 years then she must have liked it too and it looks like she likes it.(some) Women like sex too, it’s not something you “give” but something you also receive.

    • Momma

      October 29, 2013 at 7:58 pm

      What does it mean to be “ripe for marriage?” Do you attain this “ripeness” at a certain age? Is it something that’s universal? Is it something that society impises on you! You all should face your own lives, because if they rush in and rush out, you all wil be quick to run your mouth. If we read thatshe’s had 11 men in 11 years, you all will also have your knickers in a knot. Face your lives! By the way, riped is not a word. Spend more time doing some learning.

    August 19, 2013 at 3:07 pm

    The joblessness of people sha! So she dated him for 11 years! So he’s not perfect, so she’s not perfect at least she’s not out playing the fields with men her grandfather’s age like most of you. If she’s not dating, you’ll say she’s not dating, now she’s dating, it’s still a problem. I don’t know this girl from a can of paint, but all you people should just bloody let her live! Haba! I know the next thing you peopl with balls will say is that its the price she pays for being in the public eye, but cut her some slacks and free the girl, Biko! Just sit behind your cheap computers and be bashing people you don’t know and have never met. #Nonsense!

  20. shannaro

    August 19, 2013 at 3:12 pm

    Ah ah where did BN get the dating for 11 years from? I remember Toke saying in some atrocious Rubbin’ mind interview that she had been friends with the guy for 11 years and they took it from there

  21. tatafo!

    August 19, 2013 at 3:13 pm

    What’s wrong with dating someone for 11 years? I find it admirable that they have been together for this long and have grown together. They probably have dreams and goals they want to achieve before a wedding. At the end of the day we are not privy to the intimate details of their relationship. I personally wish I had something that secure where both of us know the other person is not going anywhere and it’s just a matter of time.

  22. Nonye

    August 19, 2013 at 3:16 pm

    11years and she will open wide her mouth to “teach” her followers when to leave or quit a relationship that’s not working. now toke tell us gini ji nwa nkita onwu. so they started dating when she was 18 her first yr in uni or just leaving sec school

    • TheAgnostic1

      August 20, 2013 at 12:15 am

      Lol. You people sef. So a relationship that has been on for 11 years is one that is “not working” because the parties are unmarried? What is the correlation? If they want to marry, would you be the one to tell them? How does marriage make a relationship work anyway?

  23. BellaYankee

    August 19, 2013 at 3:18 pm

    Abeg make una no quote me but I think Maje found new love and respect for Toke given that she’s now quite successful. He seems renewed in all this because a woman that is not a liability is a huge turn on for new age men. Abi she’s now rocking engagement ring? Next thing is white wedding.

    Women stop looking for a man to “hook” and men stop looking for a woman to tie down- both parties should find life partners that can both grow together.

    • Tincan

      August 19, 2013 at 4:46 pm

      I am with you here. It also seems to me that he has found a new love and respect for her. I have to say, like toolz did in her interview, I admire Toke’s tenacity. Given the way she was bashed when she started her vlogs and the way some of her business was put out there, the girl is tenacious and I hope she’ll reap the rewards. I hope it all works out for her and Maje. I also admire the fact that she’s only been known to be with the one guy. Sentimental things but I like it.

      Whatever!! human beings will always have examples of everything negative under the sun. I dated my boyfriend for 9 years before we got hitched. I won’t advise my daughter to date for that long as perspectives have now changed but there are many success stories out there so to each their own

      Toke has simply turned Mario for the ayida family house. Lets face it, who else will marry this chic when she has be “tagged and stamped” all over by maje? All her types are maje s friends so they won’t even touch her. I’m not trying to be mean I’m just saying if she she leaves maje now, she will always be remembered and referred to as maje’s ex, and I can tell you no man wants that. I hope they marry her sha cos she ain’t going nowhere…plus emi toke yi. Her suffer head alone go make her never leave cos she wants to shame the naysayers….do you girl

  38. An Urgent CALL TO NIGERIAN WOMEN, as I personally know this couple

    August 19, 2013 at 7:39 pm

    1. Toke and Maje go to my church, I have seen them together on some sunday and I can see they are blessed. They are happy and they are content. I am not saying they are perfect and may not have their problems but isn’t that normal? The problem is Nigerian women are never content, u are always feeling pressured because a lot of you base your sense of worth on what others expect from you and that is how many end up making life long mistakes.Sometimes mistakes that cost your lives or inner peace.

    2. Please my fellow nigerian women, i’m not here to insult any of u or use harsh words but answer me this-Has Toke said anything on her blog that is not true? All the advice I’ve heard from her has been sound advice that any sensible woman would give so what is the problem?
    WOMEN, so because she is not married, she is unfit to give relationship advice abi? OKAY i see, This is how the pharisees criticised Christ o, for living in poverty even tho that was HIS choice and He preached the truth. In their shallow eyes, He was unfit, yet He ended up being the King of Kings.

    3. IF indeed Toke ends up marrying this dude, it may very well be a “king of kings” marriage, i.e a BLESSED marriage full of purpose. A better marriage than any of u here shouting could ever have! Built on a solid foundation of friendship, faith and the fruit of patience. All that is required for a marriage to last. After all it is JUST 11 years out of the rest of their lives.

    4. Even IF she doesn’t end up with this man she will be very ok. Abi are u people not seeing what i’m seeing? She is still young, beautiful, intelligent and ambitious! She would be even more prepared to face the challenges that come with marriage, and enjoy the rewards.

    5.WOMEN, Marriage is not the be all and end all to everyone’s happiness. We are in the 21st century, we have choices. She is successful, she has faith in God and she’s with a good man- she has it all if u ask me. Toke can be just as fulfilled and even more satisfied with her life without the “marriage” title because marriage never guaranteed anyone heaven. If they are taking their time, thats their priority. The question is, what is yours?

    • zsa zsa

      August 19, 2013 at 8:25 pm

      Thank you very much for this. I dont watch toke’s vlogs but
      i can tell the chick is quite ambitious…maybe the delay in
      “settling down” has been due to her desire to make something for
      herself rather than sit around waiting for dude to wife her. So
      what is she has dated or known him for 11yrs? we don’t know the
      intimate details of their relationship so why the fuss? maybe she
      has “known” him for 11 yrs, they probably got serious sometime
      during the 11yrs abi? I knew my hubby for 10yrs before we got
      married…met him when i was 18. Took me a while to decide if i
      wanted to be in a relationship and all that…got married at 29,
      nobody pressured me, nobody pressured him and nobody died….we
      were both ready when we were ready. Some folks just like to over
      analyze situations that are really not complicated.

    ps- Marriage also does not guarantee respect. It is the
    individual that gains respect not the title! Just because she is
    not married does not make her less capable of giving relationship
    or marital advice, likewise a married woman may be totally clueless
    on relationship advice. WOMEN BE WISE.

    August 19, 2013 at 11:16 pm

    What does it matter how long they’ve dated??? She’s known
    him or dated him since she was 17, that was young. Now she’s 28,
    still young enough. People saying 11yrs is long probably started
    dating when they were 24, lol. I like the fact that she’s an
    enterprising young woman and in my opinion 28yrs isn’t old.
    Marriage has enough challenges. Please continue to develop yourself
    Toke. I don’t know u but I admire the fact that u obviously believe
    in developing urself FIRST before u get married which is a whole
    different ball game. Continue to enjoy ur relationship.

      LOL I really think this Toke post was deliberately created to start a war because I don’t see the point of it. I’m also starting to notice the trend of BN posting the pointless topics you find on Linda Ikeji’s blog purely for sensationalism, but LIB is clearly a gossip blog. And Damilare Aiki, like others have said please, in posts like this it would make sense if you insist on quoting ages to say ‘Toke, 28 and Maje, 20/30/40 whatever’

    My own question is ‘why does the guy always wear black?’ I mean its not like he has to tone down the brightness of his complexion

    Toke, this is what happens when you put your business out there. This is all unnecessary. I hope it works out for you. Keep you private life private. Follow Bella’s example because, putting yourself out the creates a short term buzz ( maybe that is your intention) but you’ll lose out in the end.

    BN, first things first, each to his own! what works for you may not work for someone else, so all these comments are of your own opinions on your own personal situations abi, so in that light, we dont know why they are or have been dating for 11 years, clearly that is her own business, but if you all take a moment to think, how mature are you at 18-25 to marry someone, start a family and improve your self career wise, Toke is in the public eye and she needs to clearly make a name (brand) for herself, how then can you do that with a husband, children to manage and all this barely before 30. This is always a recipe for disaster and divorce. I agree, it may look like 11 years is way too long a time to date someone but at the age of their meeting, they were just kids who were intp puppy love, its not like she is 30 /35 and been dating this man for this long, i feel that they have created a foudnation of love and trust and they know what they want for their future together, should they not work out – they are both established as individuals and can mov eon wiser from being ina relationhip for this long, as opposed to finding out creepy new nasty habits of a newly married couple. I feel that they are in love, i feel that i would also want to wait to getmy own life in order first before i settle on being someone’s wife, i nned to know that I can stand on my own two feet before i rely on my husband to be. Kudos to them both, at this point of maturity they know who they are and what they want, never mind of what society deems right or wrong, a tthis age and kowing each other, they cannot be character suprises but trustful and honest beings and clearly they are in love, whether Toke is inot him more or less its okay, love has no percentage portions. I say each to his own but truth is all of us can do with knowing our spouses a little longer before I do and securing our own selves before relying on them for every kobo.

    Ps. that said Toke, if by 32 Maje still hasnt proposed then you have 2 choices, carry on if you dont care for marriage or save yourself the heartache and move on. Can i also mention that Tina Turner got married at 73. Ands Oprah is still yet to marry, for as long as both of you are ok with it then Kudos, but if you are not happy with this term period, my dear, keep it moving – your manis fine tho, you suit each other v well.

    Dating for 11years is a long time. I know a lot of couples do it especially when the girl is younger and the guy is older. I think the girl wants to take her time. What is Toke mixed with? Lol…wonders shall never end. It’s not by force to be mixed now because u end up looking weird. Good luck to her.

    What does it mean to be “ripe for marriage?” Do you attain this “ripeness” at a certain age? Is it something that’s universal? Is it something that society impises on you! You all should face your own lives, because if they rush in and rush out, you all wil be quick to run your mouth. If we read thatshe’s had 11 men in 11 years, you all will also have your knickers in a knot. Face your lives!
