    Toke makinwa and her stories…..I got to watch two of her previous interview and they r still on you tube…….every day a different pokie pies.

    My name is Toke Makinwa and I turned 29 last month. I am from Idanre, Ondo State and I come from a very large family. I studied English Literature at the University of Lagos. I am just a girl next door, unpredictable, a lover of life and I am very passionate about God.

    Being an On Air Personality

    Growing up, my voice was not nice. I thought I sounded husky and I remember breaking up with a guy who said I sounded like a man. I was 18 going on 19 and waiting to get into the university when a friend informed me that Cool FM had opened. I went in for auditions and I was being paid N25,000 per month in 1999. I did not tell anyone at home. One day, my mother heard my voice on radio and she stopped me. I was not even allowed to go back to put in my resignation letter! After I graduated, I was stuck. Do I go for youth service? Get a job or relocate to England

      I know right?! It always amazes me how comfortable she is at telling bold faced lies publicly. But It seems to be working out well for her with her family, friends and the people she associates with, and that’s all that matters I guess.

      Toke the 1st man here should be ur hubby, shows a big disconnect, u better chill at being all self absorbed and build ur marriage, that’s what breaks celeb marriages, refusing to face reality and living in fantasy land

    • british/naija/ghana

      November 9, 2014 at 5:35 pm

      ……and why does the first man have to be her hubby? You guys maaan!!..It’s always her hubby this, hubby that!What if he was busy doing other stuff?How do you know what’s working for their marriage and what’s not? I am indifferent to this lovely lady but the one thing I admire about her is how far she has come despite all the spite and nay sayers. Why can’t you just congratulate her on turning a new milestone? How can a picture show how self absorbed someone is? Unless of course you know her personally for which I must apologise. However, if you don’t, and you’re making assumptions based on what you read on the internet, then it’s such a pity.
      Look how much positive energy this girl has and how people celebrate her. She has come from nothing to so much and no, I’m not a friend of Toke. I only found out about her from this site but I get so peeved when people just sit behind their laptops and write whatever they want. okay Madam Sue and don’t go and assume there too…..

    I’m convinced she’s pregnant cos she looks “fuller”….and slightly darker too cos she clearly cant use her usual skincare products which will more than likely be harmful to her baby. I dunno sha but Im hardly ever wrong about these things.

    November 9, 2014 at 5:39 pm

    Lol! Toke, you could have done well to use the money spent on this for a proper white wedding to remember. Actually went to check the complete fashion mag and yes, TOKE, you are not 30! You are 34, if interviews granted are anything to go by.
    I admire your tenacity but the truth is if you quit lying, people won’t love you less. Congrats on the baby and you could have used your house for the photo shoot. Judging from Maje’d bday party, it’s not a bad place to shoot in. As usual, your discontent reared it’s head again. Be content with what you have girl. Happy 34th. I celebrate you Toke

      Well, it can be the anniversary of her 30th birthday. Nothing wrong with celebrating whatever age you want to. Per her wedding, it’s her life, it’s her money, she can choose which one she wants to throw a party for…

      November 10, 2014 at 3:57 am

      bruno I usually don’t agree with you, but you really nailed on the “discontent” with the photo shoot thing. This woman is always trying to be every one and every thing but who she really is. There nothing about herself she is not trying to change.

    Looks boring, dry and cheap like a signature Toke party, . I guess they didn’t ‘infite’ her to Olu of Warri and Okunza wedding in Benin cos that’s where the real deals were this past weekend o. You can crash a part uninvited but you obviously can’t crash a private jet charter flight ride. Pele toke. And those those saying must Maje be everywhere, heck yes it’s his wife 34th, oops 30th birthday so where else should he be?

    November 9, 2014 at 7:51 pm

    What is wrong with congratulating a married woman on being pregnant? The way some people take offense, it’s like they don’t want a baby at all. She does look pregnant, she does look older than 30 but people age differently. It’d have been nice to see at least 1 picture of her husband, and no, he wasn’t running around cos she had a planner. That’s how Juliet ibrahim started celebrating without her ex before s**t hit the fan.

Toke ain’t going no where! Just leave her alone! Haba! Some people clicked on this post hellbent on saying something rude regardless of what they see in the pictures! Kilode? Whether she is 34/30 or 45! She is a sha a year older! Can’t we all manage to be nice even on her birthday post?

    something is not right here and you all Toke Rangers know it. Yes is a nice fun party, yes we are all happy for her cos she looks pregnant but no her husband is supposed to be by her side. and no if she was 18 going on 19 in 1999 according to her, she would have been 35 going on 36 in 2014, those are factual observations not insinuations or hate. the moment you are happy to invade our space wearing the toga of a celebrity, your life becomes available for public scrutiny and you cant deny us that right.. my advice is always tell the truth to the best of your knowledge that way you dont have to remember what you said the last time

    Toke is a beautiful happily married woman. Let her live. She doesn’t have to throw a wedding to suit ur taste. See double standard. U people are just throwing jabs at this girl because she is an easy target. Her small wedding according to her and her hubby’s pocket was classy. How much does she earn that she should live to please u?
    Toke looks good. Toke is trying. Don’t pull other hardworking women down. I don’t see what she is doing to warrant the hate. No runs, nothing. Aunty is hustling. She works in entertainment; do u think she won’t attend events? Some of these events she just shows up to for photo op so the organisers can beef up their guest list in the pictures they send out and she leaves. Let her breath.

      As you defend her why can’t u advice her to go easy on the liessssss. Haba . Her life is just one fake story telling to another , although I have to commend her the way she has built her brand based on the lies and packaging so well done to her. And big ups to Maje Ayida that plays along with d obvious and in many cases caught out lies. It takes love to stand or be with hat kind of partner. But the truth never hurts and will set u free.

And if u have someone putting up with this im sure it is one of those nigerian marriages a’la glorified roommates situations. Cos this bitterness u carry will surely hinder love. Tueh

    HBD. I like Toke’s hair. pls leave this chic alone. God is sure on her side. She is flying high and no going back no matter what anyone says or thinks. 34 or 30 she is has had a lovely birthday party we can only wish for.
    The only sad thing is her hubby’s presence at least in the pictures.
    As a married igbo girl, i no dey joke with my hubby. I carry him as a king. Toke learn to do the same especially on very special occasions like ur birthday celebration.
    Long live toke.

  43. Audrey

    November 10, 2014 at 7:37 am

    I suspect that at the time Toke was first employed as an OAP, she was too young.maybe 15? and so it should have been done with her parents consent; remember her mom made her stop working when she heard her on air. She probably lied earlier on about her age to save the radio station any backlash or herself for probably lying to the station that she was older. Whatever, the case its time to leave her alone. You people have judged her enough(God must be happy that you helped him do his job *rolls eyes*) now go back to your lives, your skeletons may be falling out too.

      November 10, 2014 at 2:30 pm

      Now if what you say is true then in all the 18 going 19 in 1999 interviews she gave she should have clarified that point at that time now even a Magazine article where she stated the same things she did in those YouTube interviews has surfaced where there is smoke there is fire. I really want to like this girl I really do but her lies just make me give myself a restraining order from liking her. She may be returning to her natural colour but then again it could be the photography, lighting or effects used who knows future photo shoots will tell. No one is hating Toke we are just calling her out on her lies.

      @ Kenny. people really hate her . I don’t think so . They just call her out on her lies and WTF they are so many of the lies. It’s hard even for Toke to keep up with her story .


    November 10, 2014 at 9:45 am says thus;
    Toks! May the Scorpio in you sting some humanity into the lives of all your haters and may you continue to give us reason to believe in ourselves, no matter what. Amen

    I actually saw pictures of her husband in her party on her instagram page. The fact that Bellanaija didn’t include a picture of him is really their cup of tea. The way people go about just judging from ONLY what they see is beyond me. Why judge if you don’t truly know?
    Just look at all the vile and hateful comments on one woman. So what if she told a few lies? Who hasn’t lied before? Mehn…’s well sha.

    Happy birthday Dearest Toke. The crowd at the party wasnt so classy for someone who goes out a lot.. I was expecting too see some “A- list crowd” in attendance.

    I don’t know why some people worry so much about other people’s age and what not.

    Laffing really hard @ some of the comments above i had to love some of the comments [email protected] over 20 times. i just cant believe people will be so invested in someone they don’t know, have no relations with that they will go back to verify a lie. while others will bring in evidence to pull another down#badbelle. What do you gain really? handshakes? popularity? or is it extra cash in your bank accounts. WICKEDNESS IS WORSE THAN WITCH CRAFT. be busy tearing others than with the time you can supposedly be using to invest in yourself to be the next Toke or better.
