    I tried to tolerate her opinion but someone need to call her out on her BULLSHIT!
    She sound’s ignorant and dumb as fuck, especially with this comment “If You’re Not Married, there is No Hope for You” she needs to go take several seats for that stupid ass comment.
    Marriage is not for everyone abegi, not getting marriage does not make one less better than those that do. I sincerely hate Nigerians attitude when it comes to marriage, acting as if its a do or die thing.

      You read the title of the post and ran with it. *daft behaviour*
      Watch the video then comment.

    • Keziah

      September 4, 2013 at 9:07 pm

      Point of correction, I did fully watched the video before commenting and based my criticisms on what she discussed in the video unlike you presumed, so don’t come at me like that.

    • justobserving

      September 4, 2013 at 7:17 pm


      Very well said. The irony is that most Nigerian men don’t even stay faithful and will cheat at some point in the marriage or even marry a second wife. Most Nigerian marriages are very oppressive kinda like a master-servant relationship with the woman being treated by her husband and his family like she is some glorified maid. The day she cannot birth a male child, her own is finish. Yet, Nigerians continue to obsess when it comes to marriage. Its best to keep Nigerians at bay in the REAL world because their marital obsession has taken on another dimension and is becoming a psychological problem for some.

      September 4, 2013 at 8:59 pm

      Nna, na wa oh. How did you and Keziah miss the very
      unsubtle dig she was having at the Nigerian mentality of “get
      married or die trying”? Biko, replay the video and stop taking it
      so literally.

      Have you ever heard the word ‘sarcasm’ ? Anyone with cerebral power can clearly see, that this is a parody. Geez, people be killing me. Totally blowing your lid over a misconstrued video. I can’t deal!

      September 5, 2013 at 8:52 am

      As if married Nigerian women do not cheat. They are fast catching up with the male folks.

    September 4, 2013 at 6:48 pm

    I really stopped watching Tokes videos a long time ago. I only stopped by to read the comments because I find that they have more depth than the contents of the video.
    It seems I am too early today. Will come back to read more comments.
    In the mean time visit my new blog as I share my journey about life in the US

      Abegi! take several seats jo! IT’s a no brainer to see that Toke’s vid’s are all humor. And after saying you’ve stopped watching why should we start being interested in your akata moves in the US.

    What the hell is this? I like toke and all but this is one of the worst episodes ever, actually it is the worst. like huh? if theres nothing to talk about then skip a week and rest. she’s also trying way too hard to be funny. couldn’t even watch the whole thing. just displaying all sorts of ignorance. SMH. Toke please take a break from this, you’re obviously running out of topics and you’re also becoming boring as hell. i like you but its a big ass NO from me

    September 4, 2013 at 7:26 pm

    Lmao!! at ” whats is lashes c’mon remove that from your eyes you need to do shuku and wear thread that way the man will you know your very seriours” #ICANNOT Toke, Makinwa she is hilarious also you need to be a frequent wedding attender whether you know the groom or bride or you don’t know them you must be there lol 😀

  18. Benashmom

    September 4, 2013 at 7:31 pm

    How about if you placard a sign on your forehead that say “I want a husband”. This is rubbish because you are in your forties doesn’t mean there’s no hope for you. I like your commentary, but this one just rubs me wrong. Or, you might have been joking.

  19. Royalty

    September 4, 2013 at 7:32 pm

  20. TooooooooooooFunny

    September 4, 2013 at 7:48 pm

    That was sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo funny. She is
    clearly being sarcastic and does not really believe that. But I
    think her point is that some NAIJA RIDE OR DIE(ERS) DO!!!

  21. TooooooooooooFunny

    September 4, 2013 at 7:50 pm

    @Chizoba gets the sense of humor, those that do not should
    go to sleep abeg. I shall now follow tokstarr on twitter

  22. Faith

    September 4, 2013 at 8:09 pm

    Some people don’t have a sense of humour sha. If you could
    not filter through that she was being sarcastic and actually
    abusing those who carry marriage on their head, you have serious
    issues you need to deal with. Did you hear the part she said don’t
    wear lipstick like me, do shuku on your head, maybe that’s why I am
    the oldest girlfriend. Come on women don’t get your knickers in a
    twist. BN just like posting such videos and articles to rile you
    single girls up and you will come here and start chanting marriage
    is not by force o. It is not this it is not that, meanwhile inside
    you, it is the opposite. You crave it badly, you want what your
    friends have, you want the title, you want the wedding, you want to
    no longer be asked when are you getting married, but your coping
    strategy is to diss marriage when the topic comes up so you come
    across like a badass geh who doesn’t send. Who are you deceiving.
    That is why you are still single sef if you want to know. Because
    your utterances are not in alignment with your prayers and wishes.
    There is power in your tongue, add fingers join because you are
    typing, there is power in your approach. Don’t be contradictive if
    you want your prayers to be answered. The viciousness, bitterness
    and outright ranting is tooooooooooooooo obvious biko. We know
    where your heart lies. This video was not even funny at all. If she
    wanted to do a proper tongue in cheek, she could have done better
    comedy wise. But for you girls to just launch attack. Come on. Go
    lower your high BP abeg. Your singlehood bitterade is clouding your
    judgement. Your body starts to scratch you when such topics come
    up, you can’t see through the one being sarcastic. Abi I lie.
    Sunday will come part of your prayer point will be Lord where is my
    husband o you will now come here and be doing voltron of
    singlehood. Abeg waka. This is coming from a single girl who will
    be 30 by Christmas and is not offended one bit by this video
    because it is not meant for people like me because I am assured it
    will happen and it will be right and worth the wait. Neither am I
    bitter about my status. Many women did not even live to see 30. So
    don’t think I’m a married woman trying to feel superior. I can just
    read through you girls BS and I had to call you out. If you are
    carrying marriage on your head like it is the visa to heaven or you
    are bitter about your single hood of course you will take offence.
    You girls ranting belong to one of the two camps. CONFESS.

      Thanks Toke (aka Faith) for another written epistle on top of the video. Are you done or do we expect the picture part of the message?

    • Faith

      September 5, 2013 at 11:32 am

      Aaaaaw my comment touched a nerve didn’t it. Which camp do you belong because you definitely belong to one of the two camps that is why my comment annoyed you on top of the video. I feel sorry for you now. Pele my dear. Big hugs from here. I am not Toke. Your single bitterade is still clouding your judgement. Stop looking for Toke in every comment that defends her. Work on your issues. Thanks to the other ladies who don’t have issues

    • Simi

      September 26, 2013 at 4:33 pm

      I am amazed that people are beefing her for this vlog. They
      obviously don’t have a sense of humor. I see it as Toke telling us
      what people do just to get married. And truly, in a gathering of
      mainly couples, the single woman (or sometimes, the TDH bachelor)
      is seen as a threat. I’m not saying that being married makes you
      immune from advances from the opposite sex, but in our society, if
      you’re not married, people look at you and sometimes treat you as
      though you had a communicable disease!! Don’t burst a vein by
      taking this to heart. Toke is not claiming to be a ‘relationship
      expert’ and she’s not counseling you.

  23. BabyDee

    September 4, 2013 at 8:09 pm

    Lmaooo.. @ Toksmama, I have laughed tire!! “find the man at
    hihophurray type of churches & then switch to mfm”!! I
    can’t laugh for real!! Good vlog! BN Commenters, haba, you people
    need to learn to chill a little and learn to laugh. Goodness
    Gracious! Can’t you not recognize sarcasm when you hear one? She
    didn’t ask you to take her advise to the bank. It’s meant to laugh
    over. Like it or not, this is what a lot of chics do in Naija to
    land a man. She’s obviously poking fun at them! Who has not come
    across that aunty (mum or dad”s sister) that is always calling to
    find out when you are getting married? and will tell you and your
    parents that over book-ness is worrying you, and if there is no man
    by age 30 then there is no hope for you! Almost everyone has come
    across a friend\extended family\parents who say things like this.

    Ppl abusing her calm down what she’s saying is very right
    nigerians and their mentality have lavish big weddings and most
    ladies are not happy and most wedding ceremony are now lasting than
    the marriage itself nowadays God help us av always told myself i
    will never marry a nigerian

    September 4, 2013 at 8:59 pm

    BellaNaija readers need to get off Toke’s dick. Like seriously. Kai. As in ehn, a lot of people are as dumb as eff. You cannot even hear a joke even if they hit you on the head with it. Or is it the haterade that you’re sipping that has robbed you of all sense of humor? Common on now people, I am sure you aren’t that dense. Seriously. #endofrant

    “Any girl holding my husband ransom die die die dieeee…”, “Anybodu selling asoebi, buy”!!! Toke haff killed somebody today. LOOOL.

  31. Nicole

    September 4, 2013 at 9:03 pm

    You all need to chill. Only a dumb person would fail to realise that she was being sarcastic and more or less replying those who drop negative comments about her long term relationship. Perhaps someone who could not wait to watch and digest the video to the end before rushing to the comment section to rant…..All because of prejudice. People need to chill…its not that serious. Besides we need more sarcastic videos like this, because our society has a terrible and unhealthy obsession with marriage. The funny part is that these people obsessing dont have the slightest idea of what it really entails…..

    Some Nigerians and their daft mentality. from the beginning of the video you could see she was sarcastic and most of the commentators did not finish the video if not their body would not be itching them, why the painment? y’all need to take a chill pill and dilute it with some respect for what Toke is doing and saying.

  37. Chinel

  40. Nicole

    September 4, 2013 at 9:33 pm

    It’s just satire… why are some people responding as though she is dead serious. It’s all over the tone of the video and her voice that she is making light of a situation society takes a little too seriously

  41. Na truth I talk

    September 4, 2013 at 9:36 pm

    Gosh! So many frustrated Nigerians on Bella’s blog, you guys should please relax and enjoy the sarcasm . The girl is just kidding but in all reality she has truly relayed the naija mentality. So u may have to take a clue from her video blog and get yourselves hitched! How can people say this isn’t funny??? O ga o

    I see that most people that have watched this vlog do not understand english at all. I can bet that some people did not watch the video but came on here just to rant and leave negative comment. People, it doesnt hurt to leave a nice comment at all.

    So that’s Toke’s angle all along….satire…she just needs
    to let the satirical aspect show more often.

    this was funny. but i think my fellow nigerian girl can seem to be too hasty when it comes to Marriage. GIRLS RELAX DIVORCE is real! after he divorces u and leaves u with ur child he shall find another.

    she looks like a typical naija woman, yoruba babe. Bleached face, neon makeup. She talks too much. How did she become famous. Eish, celebritydom – naija style.

    y’all should take chill pill, when she made a video about jobless tom’s saying TGIF y’all screamed she was making fun of them and it’s not right but the first time she made one about relationships ,the comment was just pouring in forgetting her flavored accent,to me I think she was testing water to see which was more acceptable to public and relieve their stress, those asking her to make serious videos prolly don’t have internet connections at home or members of FRA{free readers association under the brigde and bus-stop), what else do you want her to talk about? current weather ,news , jobs or politics ? prove me wrong that you have internet at home and can get yourself a newspaper that which you look for is in paper and on channelsonline tv . all ye shuku-ers and high towers destroyer stare clear of tokes and while ya at it munch on you haterice and hatorade juice . dunno toke but sure loving this and people really need LOL moments.

    Toke, this is your best Vlog ever! Now, I can see that you are talking to Nigerians and you hit it right on the head.
    Nigerians and marriage? It is a do or die. How sad!

    Toke!Toke!Toke! I apologise on behalf of the ‘peeps’ that struggle with reading between the lines (or is it watching, listening and understanding the underlying message?) They sure take the p!ss.

    @Faith, I’m a single lady hitting 30 by christmas as well and I’m loving your comment.

    September 5, 2013 at 7:24 am

    Toke o Toke!!!! Lmao…………you guys need to take a chill pill. She just said it like it is because in Nigeria marriage is actually do or die! That’s why I don port go another country make I have peace of mind….lol

    Keziah.. It’s not a do or die issue.
    Take a morphine or ibuprofen
    It’s not that serious.
    Learn NOT to take life that seriously
    Or you’ll be someone people will never
    Want to be around with.
    It’s like a parody, meant to
    Frustration have lead to
    Depression, that even The
    Funniest thing, many don’t,find it

    @keziah u r just been over sensitive, its a funny video…….no biggie

  71. Cool cat

    September 5, 2013 at 9:15 am

    If the video was intended to be funny, it didn’t come across as such at all. Toke keeps putting herself out there and making herself susceptible to criticism. I actually think she’s asking for it, otherwise she would sit in her house and stop making these lack lustre videos. I used to defend her when people would make nasty comments but going forward, i think i will join them in pleading with her to just sit her flat ass in one place.

      September 5, 2013 at 10:02 am

      sit in her house, and not follow her passion???…very good sure dats wat u do!

    • Nikky

      September 5, 2013 at 2:20 pm

      It takes a lot of guts and confidence to put yourself out there and to make jokes abpout yourself. you do realise she’s not married either. Everything she joked about is true. i married later and i remember my mum and aunties ganging up on me and requesting for a list of names of prospective suitors to take to some prophet or the other. But seriously just be yourself. The man i eventually married, i didnt do a thing to impress him.

    • Nicole

      September 5, 2013 at 2:29 pm

      Your comment makes no sense… To be honest, it is one of the dumbest things anyone can say in this modern age. It is people like you that see marriage as a do or die affair, because you have nothing doing… Talk about making your man your job…..

  72. Yetunde

    September 5, 2013 at 9:34 am

    Why does she open all her mouth when talking tho?? its really disgusting

  73. Lady T

    September 5, 2013 at 9:57 am

    Well. i guess everyone knows what he or she want in life, if u want to get married, fine and if u don’t want to get married, still fine, base on individual wishes and opinion. so Toke stop sounding as if u want to tell people what to do in life.

  74. I just think is just being funny, all she says i take with a pinch of salt and just laugh… lol

  75. CYNTH

    September 5, 2013 at 10:27 am

    All of you dat are condenming her open your eyes,she speaks the truth,whether u like it or not.The joke about the whole thing is dat those condenming her will be the first to put it to practice, HYPOCRITES!!!!.Anyway kudos to u,you spoke well.

  77. beibe

    September 5, 2013 at 10:41 am

    I live in Nigeria and I think those who actually think that marriage is a do or die thing like toke are those who are desperate to marry cos they want t o be married. I seriously think toke`s vlog is just rubbish, she has no good personality, some of us know her relationship story she is just too unfit to be an inspiration. I personally have neva been inspired or motivated b any of her crap. if she is aspiring to have a talk show she will have to go in and come out again as a diff person. a more natural person, u don’t have to force it girl it comes naturally for her fans who are reading u can run ur mouth all day. the point still remains she is not “a peoples girl”

    • neola

      September 5, 2013 at 1:44 pm

      madam beibe….This was not intended to inspire anybody.. how else does one explain p explain joke, sarcasm, satire to people.. o ga ooo.. please just enjoy the vlog and laugh, except she hit the nail right on the head and of course struck your nerves…..TOKE! Abeg continua jare….

    • MOI

      September 5, 2013 at 2:44 pm

      Nawa to uuuu Madam Beibe or Oga Beibe, who are u to judge someone based on their relationship? are u sure u will ever find a husband in ur lifetime? and if you are married, are u sure it will even last 5 yrs? Toke is just joking, u shouldn’t use her personal life to mock her.. and so? if she has dated her BF for 50yrs ehen? is it ur business? where is ur own naaa… u are such a heter… please get a life or kindly hug a BIG TRANSFORMER when its raining….

    Thanks Toke (aka Faith) for another written epistle on top of the video. Are you done or do we expect the picture part of the message?

    • Faith

      September 5, 2013 at 11:31 am

      Aaaaaw my comment touched a nerve didn’t it. Which camp do you belong because you definitely belong to one of the two camps that is why my comment annoyed you on top of the video. I feel sorry for you now. Pele my dear. Big hugs from here. I am not Toke. Your single bitterade is still clouding your judgement. Stop looking for Toke in every comments that defends her. Work on your issues

    Abeg people should have some sense of humor jare it reduces your stress levels you know. Learn to recognize satire/sarcasm. This video just lifted my mood after an idiot at work pissed me off. “Do shuku or wear thread” Lmfao this girl we not kee me. All the things she mentioned here na true and a lot of girls do some or most of them me included. Yes I want to get married and I pray to Baba God with my ‘toasters’ names because I don’t want to marry the wrong person lol. No be say I dey carry names go meet one pastor or alfa o, I pray by myself.

    Quite funny actually. All the negative comments clearly come from people with absolutely no sense of humour. SMH. To all the people asking if she has nothing better to talk about… what did you expect a download of her thoughts on the war in Syria? or maybe something about the current economic situation in Nigeria might have brightened ur day

    Some people will burst their CRANIAL NERVES because
    Of a satire. Gosh!! Learn to life at life sometimes.
    If you take it way too seriously, then something
    IS definitely wrong somewhere.
    Maybe she’s trying to send
    A message to the man
    She’s been with all these years, that it’s time
    To put a ring on it and tie the knots..

    September 5, 2013 at 5:20 pm

    I am still not sure if this myriad of outrage has to do with this video or some other personal issues. Or did I watch a different video? The video I saw got me LMAO.

    I look forward to more funny videos from you, Toke. For those asking her to do something more serious, CNN online is free 4 all.

    Seriously,its so painful.I lost a beautiful accommodation today because I am not married.The Landlady was so adamant saying “sorry my dear,I dont want issues in my house,I need a married woman”.

      Awww hugs hunny. Don’t you worry, you’ll find an even better accomodation – and even best believe that your prince charming is about to make his grand appearance and pop the question ok? Enjoy this season (Winter), whilst you wait for Sping/Summer . Mwah!

    Hilarious! @ Jummie Landladies are always like that, one even collected my full name to give to her Catholic priest for prayers is that not witchcraft! a medical Doctor for that matter!
    So my dear you will be fine , I am in my thirties and I believe Toke is putting out there what our Nigerian society put people through .
    I resigned my job, and used my rent to go live in the Uk and America for months, I am in the right frame of mind to come back now and face the Nigeria stress, if I get back and stressed up again ,it is final relocation ,so good luck to my fellow single ladies, keep it real, travel and enjoy yourself now that you are single, as when it happens men! Your independence is gone, then you will be needing permission to live your life.
