    …True…buh, I really don’t feel this toke babe…there’s soms ratchet about her ..*justsaying

    • ms lala

      August 22, 2013 at 2:54 pm

      really tho….please share what’s ratchet..i didnt know it was HATE O CLOCK over at your corner…please down somewhere and sip some haterade with ice…u need the electrolytes cuz all these hating must have burned some major calories.

    • beee

      August 22, 2013 at 3:26 pm

      Toke has answered the question on EVERYONE LIP…….WHY IS TOKE BLEACHING .
      And yes i know first hand that her skin colour is ENHANCED , was her classmate in FGCO. ……..So all this yellow is to be a Lagos big girl , na wah oooo

    • MissT

      August 22, 2013 at 3:30 pm

      Ms Lala, What has Hate got to do with an observation …… You all need to retire the word HATE and expand your vocab . If she feels Toke is ratchet then thats her perception and how is that Hate

      August 22, 2013 at 5:10 pm

      Toke, you don’t have to come at people with multiple ids whenever you see your name. You put out a video to the public, thereby invoking opinions. If you can’t handle it, get a real job. You want attention and you are getting it.

    • L.L.

      August 22, 2013 at 8:17 pm

      OMG! I just died @ ur response. LMAO!

      You’re so terribly ill-mannered. And i am being nice leaving it at that but seriously, your ill breeding is showing

    • Jia

      August 23, 2013 at 4:46 am

      I am not sure about ratchet but I would say that this biracial woman has nothing important to say. An adult should have more to speak about. I don’t watch her videos anymore because I don’t want to f up my brain anymore. However, she has a big personality and a shallow audience to succeed.

    • sumn

      August 22, 2013 at 5:39 pm

      eating at mama kafaya’s is not a function of having money/class some of us just really like buka food!

    • ms lala

      August 22, 2013 at 6:40 pm

      Really…..says who. Like it can’t be cooked in a better restaurant my dear please sit down and eat your buka food and be quiet. ….

    • Thatgidigirl

      August 22, 2013 at 7:00 pm

      @ ms Lala, Saipan? Really? Of all places, smh!

    • ms lala

    Nice vlog

    • Non professional opinion

      August 22, 2013 at 4:12 pm

      *waves* Over hear! Hi!
      Yes, I started out ambivalent and now I find her beyond irritating. Mainly because she is a troll.
      Partly because she sounds weird.
      Also this video sounds like she is reciting her autobiography.
      And before you trot out the lame ass “why did you click her post ” the answer is……….
      Keep hiding your breath, the answer is coming.

    • reallyyyyyy!!!

      August 22, 2013 at 5:48 pm

      I love you. you have said it all. Some of her vlogs are actually good but the facial expression just irritates me and to think that she just talked about the so called big girls being yellow or enhancing their skin colour, this babe is a joker with no mirror at home. she keeps hiding her knuckles…

    • Hidi

      August 23, 2013 at 12:05 am

      There is no answer because you are obviously fascinated with her. You hate her, you complain and then you click on her obsession be that na!

  9. joe

    August 22, 2013 at 3:19 pm

    Kinda boring. . .compared 2 other videos tho. Just sorta drags on

    who cares

  11. bi

    August 22, 2013 at 3:29 pm

    i still like toke but she must also be high a class babe cuz she said they are yellow. she’s also yellow #justsaying.

    this chick is hilarious!!!!!


    August 22, 2013 at 3:39 pm

    First, Tokes not 28. Get your facts right before putting that out. Nice Vid. Its amazing how you know the high class babes well. Have you worked with some of them before? Im guessing you have…. since youre light skinned yourself.

  16. Vics

    August 22, 2013 at 4:04 pm

    Wow! Can’t help but notice how d hatred on Toke is gradually changing to love…good to know we are not all bout hate, hate in dis country, I mean if a person improves its good to acknowledge it..for me i like d fact that she’s not hiding the least she didn’t leave out d skin enhancement fact for fear of being judged…babe is just saying it like it is…more grease!

  17. Angie

    August 22, 2013 at 4:05 pm

    I am having a re-think.Toke is quite interesting….

  18. Madman

    August 22, 2013 at 4:05 pm

    If this is the priority of most Nigerians girls, then Nigeria is a sick place.

    • Mz Socially Awkward...

      August 23, 2013 at 2:52 pm

      But, bro, that’s what a lot of Nigerian men want, though. Yellow + expensive looking + nice arm candy. I saw a lot of this when I was in school (eg. in conversations where a guy complains there are no “good girls” left and I point out that I know plenty low-key babes who probably check his definition of “good”… cos you know it’s always virgins they’re on about…, I always got the impression those low-key babes weren’t quite hot enough to do it for him).

      I see even more of it now. Some guys may argue that the rationale behind choosing babes of a certain calibre is simply because they want a girl who takes care of herself but more often than not, it’s more than her just looking nice. They want that “WOW” factor which causes other men to look … and women have capitalized on that, by any means necessary. It ain’t proper but it is what’s happening on those Lagos streets.

  19. kemio

    August 22, 2013 at 4:13 pm

    toke is real and she is ashamed to express her opinions on everyday matters. i kindda see her as the Wendy Williams of Nigeria.

  20. Imagin that

    August 22, 2013 at 4:32 pm

    Toke is one of the ladies that can’t go out without a weave or attachment. just imaging what she ll looks like without all these attachment on the hair. She wowo shall, see head of life. Just take a look at her mother Theressa arm with a lots of cellulite

    • F

      August 22, 2013 at 4:56 pm

      That’s totally uncalled for. Comment on the contents of the video if you must.

  21. Africhic

    August 22, 2013 at 4:34 pm

    I’m personally tired of these tales.

    • nene

      August 22, 2013 at 5:09 pm

      tell me about it. and it seems like she’s indirectly talking about people who used to be in her circle or even people she “knows from afar”.

  22. boomzy

    August 22, 2013 at 4:49 pm

    Imagin that….dis ur english go kill person sha!! Na jealousy abi hatred consume u reach like so?

  25. Turayo Tijani

    August 22, 2013 at 4:59 pm

    She is still irritating but Damilare enough with the ages. Enough! Cause you sure don’t balance it for the males

  26. ...AND FINALLY

    August 22, 2013 at 5:06 pm

    so really all what she described does lead to success in the long run. the girl is talking from experience

  27. Alero

    August 22, 2013 at 5:09 pm

    Toks star with a double “R”… You are too much! U sure have a sense of humour. 😀

  28. Ibukun

    August 22, 2013 at 5:09 pm

    The person that said she is so sure Toke enhanced her skin because they went to the same high school is a clown *scrolling up to check the name* yes! miss Bee, so you still look the exact same way you did when you were in school with Toke right? i can just imagine. I don’t know if she enhanced her skin or not and really I don’t care, but I think you knowing her in high school (after so many years) is a very dull reason to be so sure. if you’re gonna give a reason please make it valid.

    • Bimbo

      August 22, 2013 at 5:22 pm

      @Ibukun are u for real …….. People skin colour dont change dramatically over the years, especially for someone like Toke who has lives in Nigeria dealing with that Hot sun . Naija sun actually makes u darker ….. Except you are using some form of harsh bleaching cream there is no way u can get significantly lighter like Toke. and Yes i do knw her from childhood too although not from high school . Toke sister is a bit on the fair side but Toke was normal chocolate colour

    • Tim'tim

      August 29, 2013 at 2:48 am

  30. anon

    August 22, 2013 at 5:26 pm

    the fact that u r bleached…. u lost me at they’re all yellow… now more young girls will bleach… still love you tho

  31. lyn

    August 22, 2013 at 5:35 pm

    I love you Toke Makinwa

  32. Ibukun

    August 22, 2013 at 5:39 pm

    Bimbo i get you though, see ehn i’m a dark skinned person, but in high school i was burnt black! my complexion got better over the years despite the fact that i kept hopping from sweet mother baby jelly to pears baby oil to that vaseline in the brown tube container…so imagine somebody from my high school seeing me now and suggesting i did something to enhance my skin. Toke probably enhanced her skin, i don’t know, i just don’t think knowing her from high school is a cool reason to be sure she did.

    • Hidi

      August 23, 2013 at 12:08 am

      “my complexion got better over the years” WOW!!!So you felt that your dark skin was inferior???

    • abzz

      August 23, 2013 at 11:16 pm

      Cant you read that she said she was burnt black?

  33. Lilydarl

    August 22, 2013 at 6:31 pm

    Toke,u can’t be 28yrs! Stop bleaching so that u can age normally.

    August 22, 2013 at 8:44 pm

    Sorry, Toke darling, I was just starting to enjoy your videos until in ignorance (or vanity) implied that there is some sought of correlation between being fine and being light. So are you saying there is some sought of correlation with being dark/cocoa (like me) and ugly? (Unlike me) This is why sometimes it is good for a DUDU babe to rock braids at least once every two years…all that weave that can sometimes begin to e
    affect the brain and lower the IQ or simply let a black girl think she is white…or get an inferiority complex and start to feel light skin id BETTER than dark skin. Light oh, dark oh, personally I think we are all one. I think if your light, rock it, love it. If your dark, rock it love it. On a brigther note LMAO at high class babes, faking it to make it. Yep, they need to get real jobs like the rest of us decent women.

    • Lolos

      August 22, 2013 at 11:41 pm

      incase u didnt notice TOKE is seriously bleaching and enhancing her skin colour so inferiority complex is most likely a given at this stage. Beauty comes in various shades so i pity the girls who are craving for yellow …………

    August 22, 2013 at 10:18 pm

    I love toke so much because she does not mind what anyone says about her.The babe dey make her money dey go.Toke treats real life issues.You dont need to make friends with girls that live fake life inorder to know how they behave.In place of work ,they are everywhere and her job is to look around and get what to say.i served in a Tv house and you have to change your accent to blend.whether she is ugly or not the fact still remains that toke my love dresses well,knows her job well and if her boyfriend is not complaining i wonder who has the right.for those compalining about her relationship life,business is different from relationship.let the girl be.she will get married at the right time

    Well I don’t wear prada, carry an awesome phone and spend mney cos I worked hard for it. Still consider my self a high class babe. Not all the babes with Loubs are ashi’s, some are just born with silver spoons. I think ones to watch are those with fake weaves and fake uk accents.

    • Mz Socially Awkward...

      August 23, 2013 at 2:57 pm

    August 27, 2013 at 8:55 pm

    This is the bitter truth- Toke shot herself in the foot with that Vic-O interview which was like her entry into the industry. No one should treat another human being like that. This is why no one will ever like her. She is making waves because of the negative publicity surrounding her and not because of fans that love her. Toolz has fans and that is a more positive way of being a star. Being a star based on negative publicity will never last. I hope she is enjoying the journey while it lasts. Vic-o must have cursed her or something and that is why only negativity surrounds her. She needs to go and beg for his forgiveness. As a women I feel really bad for her but then again she disgraced another fellow human on tv with her class conscious fake foneh so it is hard to feel sorry for her sometimes. You reap what you sow

  70. The Cool One

    August 29, 2013 at 12:13 am

    Okay i kind of like Toke now. But then Toke was talking about how “high class babes” are an enhanced shade of yellow. Something she’s familiar with eh???

  71. Jirla

    September 20, 2013 at 10:31 pm

    Toke you are hilarious jare! Keep doing your thing!
