      She looks older because she wears too much makeup often and Contouring. (Maybe she’s competing with Nkiru …) Anyway, I bet she looks younger with less makeup on.

      November 3, 2014 at 8:39 pm

      That was the first thought that came to my head. She just turned 30. I thought she was older…hmmmmm

      In as much as I’m not a fan of this girl and her personality, I can’t comprehend why she gets scrutinised like this. Aren’t you guys tired?
      For those saying wiki is saying she’s older, etc, anyone can put a biography of anyone on wiki, not all information you get there is legit.
      People are fond of telling you how old you are. You say you’re a particular age, people say you’re older or younger. It’s agitating.
      The other day at the salon, the lady was bent on my age being 14 after I repeatedly told her I’m 21. Let her be, please. Goodness!
      Happy Birthday, Toke. Ignore the nasty comments.
      Ps- BN, I like you new way of throwing shade oh, kuse.

      As in!!! Without my heels and extensions, I do not like taking a stroll within my estate. Cos all the high school kids would whistle as I walk by. Theyw ould eb starring and slowing down with their music blaring from the radio. I’d just be like: WTF??!! I actually do look 14 in my night wear. So I do not blame them.

    • obi-talk

      November 4, 2014 at 1:04 pm

      thats a lie she does not, how can u say that. Even you know thats untrue, I actually thot she was a small girl, as in in her twenties

    • Sue

      November 9, 2014 at 5:19 pm

      Lemme say this for the last time, toke was my classmate in secondary / high school, she is 30 or even 29. Guys, cut her some slack, even if she made a mistake somewhere, wiki is unreliable, even haters can edit it, make up has just made toke look older

    Happy birthday Tok-Star-with-a-doubleR (Tokstarr). *in your voice* … I don’t know you personally but in my head you are gorg and you slay. You def seem like the perfect gist partner. I’m a fan of your radio show. I actually LOVE the combination of you and Nanya – thanks to TuneIn Radio. God bless you today and beyond! Long live chatter box Toke!

    How can someone slash 4 whole years out of their age? Toke was 19 years old in 1999 when we graduated from high school, how then is she 30 in 2014? And how does a lie like this work, does her “husband” not know her real age or is he in on the facade?

    • Beau

      November 3, 2014 at 6:41 pm

      My dear, get a job.

    • JimmyFawks

      November 3, 2014 at 9:15 pm

      Are you intentionally ignorant or is it that you are too dumb to see ‘Toke’ is in the limelight, but unlike most of her smart co-celebs, keeps doing the darndest thing possible to sink her flourishing, but wildly ridiculed career?

      Joan Rivers (of blessed memory) was in her 80s when she passed away, and was still quite famous for her craft. So why on earth will this very unrealistic individual reduce her age by up to 4 years, not even one/two years, four good years (not that it even makes any sense at all) in an industry such as entertainment?

      I might have understood with her if she were to be a civil servant or a government-affiliate worker, but c’mon toke! Who TF* checkmates your real/fake age in entertainment?

      LAST BULLET: What’s even saddening is that her so-called husband can’t even see through the high dosage of fakeness in this lady…

      Well! What more could i possibly say? HAPPY 30TH Birthday Toke! Look forward to yet another 30th birthday come 2015…

      Yours truly,
      A friend of friend’s friend…

    • CocoI

      November 3, 2014 at 6:50 pm

      Lol! I have seen at least two interviews where Toke herself said she was 19 in 1999 when she got her first job before Uni. I have to admit, I kind of admire the way she lies with so much ease. There in no shame in her game and it takes a lot of balls to make things up as you go. Happy Birthday Toke!

    • Hmmmmm

      November 3, 2014 at 6:55 pm

      You are such a liar!!!!! She didn’t leave FGGC Oyo at the age of 19. She left at 15+, and turned 16 November of the same year. By the way, if you really attend the same school how many people can you point to that finished at the age of 19????? Stop hating! If you want to say she looks older, it’s a different thing but don’t make up fake age to make her look bad.

    • Becca

      November 3, 2014 at 9:00 pm

      She didn’t have to finish school at 19 to enter uni at the same age! She could have finished @ 16 & spent a few years jamming JAMB.

    • kiki

      November 3, 2014 at 9:31 pm

      but if she actually finished high school 16 or 17..
      based on my calculation she should be 31 or 32…

    • Jay

      November 4, 2014 at 8:54 am

      My dear I am also very alarmed oh!!! Toke was 2 years my junior and I knew her very well. She was a baby. 1 am 32 now. Her older sister Ope was a year younger than myself.
      And also she was always light skinned, even lighter than the majority.
      Kai, sour belly people be writing an epistle just be bring someone down.

      Nessa, HOW MANY PEOPLE WERE 19 in SS3 in FEGGO??? Even ruthissa was not 19, Haba!!!! Liar liar pants on fire.

      Nigerians and age issues, i still do not know why Nigerians like to either increase their age or reduce their age depending on the circumstance.
      Oh well, she said she is 30, hubby says 30 on birthday card, so i guess argument is over. LOL!

    • jules

      November 3, 2014 at 9:01 pm

      nope she wasn’t and please let’s all try to celebrate when women achieve something. I graduated in 1999 too and toke wasn’t 19.

    • Sansey

      November 3, 2014 at 9:48 pm

      All you guys want to do is hate. Who finishes high school in naija @ 19? Ah ah even if she was an olodo wwhich obviously she is not!

    • oj

      November 4, 2014 at 7:40 am

      actually, one of my seniors in sec school graduated @ 21 (back then, reagan was a government sch), so it’s possible. altho nowadays, i don’t think it’s possible except maybe in the north

      Toke was born 1984. We were both in same house Moremi house at FGGC.

    • Eniola

      November 4, 2014 at 2:56 am

      Wow! you sound really sad. The average graduation age from high school in Nigeria is 16 years old and if thats right, she’ll be just the age she is celebrating today which is 30. Please stop looking for ways to be negative and ask God to give you a different hobby.

    I admire people or celebrity that come out with their real age (Rita, Kate Henshaw, Monalisa and a few others ) any how your high school mates are the ones that can tell your true age . I like Toke but she doesn’t look any thing 30 in fact I will pass her for late 30’s or 40’s. ……..anyway .happy birthday

      November 4, 2014 at 4:09 pm

      Not true, i know for sure her older sister is 31 or 32 years old.

      Even if she’s older how does it affect you. Do you feel better about yourself when you try to put people down?

    I have to give it to Toke on this one, with way she lies I thought she would say 25 not 30. She at the very least owned up to 30 years and that is a good thing when it comes to Toke. You have to take it easy on the bleaching then because you don’t look 30 at all but, you are whatever you say you are…… Happy Birthday.

      Nothing new here- somebody celebrates a birthday and predictably the Age Police shows up in droves like they are being paid to say the person is older. In other news somebody abeg tell me what kind of weave this girl has on na. It’s all kinds of awesome.

Even if she isn’t telling the truth, how is that anyone’s business? He who is without sin should cast the first stone. I didn’t know who she was but the amount of hate and venom poured towards her made me curious and guess what, it’s making her more popular by the day so ride on haters.

    People should leave Toke alone. Just wish her happy birthday and move on. She is 30. We went to FGGC Oyo together and she was my 2/3years senior in school and same class with her senior sister then in idia house.Then, she was really young for her class but believe me it was all ok. Along the line, discovered that those wjo called me aunty in school are months older than i am. So people move on. It not a lie. Happy birthday Toke!

      In as much as I don’t like her, anyone can update anything on wiki. Please let her rest. I don’t understand Nigerians, someone will tell you how old they are, you’d say no, she’s older or younger. I went to the spa last week and the the lady blow-drying my hair was bent on the fact I’m 14, after I repeatedly told her I’m 21. It’s annoying.

    Go go Toke it’s ur birthday! So my nosy ass when to YouTube and wiki, you did say in those interviews that you were nineteen in 1999 and the wiki page you created yourself says you were born in 1980. That makes you 34 not 30. So Tokstar you might want to change your wiki info, remove the videos and start keeping up with the lies *wink*.

    na wa o. such a blatant and bold faced lie. and her husband is keeping up with her.
    shes definitely not 30.
    if she was 16 in 1999, then shes 31
    since she used her mouth to tell us she was 19 in 1999, then shes 34
    was gonna wish her a happy birthday anyway,
    but i doubt very much if her birthday is truly November 3rd.

    smh. i cant.

    Happy birthday beautiful toke. From the comments above. I presume most of d comments are juvenile kids with fish brain.dont think any reasonable person can focus on mundane things like her age n keep ranting. Wonder why 11yrs n 12 yrs old are allowed to comment on bella. 2 many juvy silly kids commenting.its a turnoff.

    Sigh… a persons birthday is not the time to throw vitriol at them. Maybe her husband just cldnt find a card that said “Happy 34th Bday” or whatever. In any case happy birthday Toke

    whether she is 30 or not i don’t see any big deal in it, and if her husband agrees with her on that what is the problem???’ biko’ you people should leave her alone its not like its any of your business anyway..Happy birthday toke!! many more years ahead.

      You know I can modify that page without toke. You ppl should allow the girl be. If she says she is 30 please accept na or dont wish her a happy birthday.
      Anyway Happy Belated Birthday Toke. I have followed you from when a certain blogger rubbished you on her blog till now. That experienced really brought you to the lime lite i assure you. All I cant say is that God has been blessing you immensely. You have gotten more awards, more endorsements etc believe me I didn’t know you before that issue. So sister you must be doing something right cos the grace is really available for you. Make use of this new dawn in your life to better in areas you need improvement and keep shinning.

      November 4, 2014 at 2:54 pm

      funny enough, when someone said it was edited, i took a screen shot. I have the screen shot of 1980. Now it is 1984.

      Believe you me, before the end of today, it would have been edited 20 times and the last would be 1990

      She’s just 24 you people, common!

    what a controversy…atleast change/update your date of birth on wikipedia to 3 November 1984. it still states 1980 which gives basis to some of the claims from previous commenters. happy bday

    November 4, 2014 at 8:31 am

    Dear all,
    Please remember that Wikipedia can be edited by ANYONE… We all KNOW that is not the most reliable source of information
    PS… Why are we all happy with saying she is older than she claims, could it be that she has truly done well for herself… Guys’ come on, the ridicule needs to stop PLEASE…. let’s stop bringing her husband in every single thing… it soooo disrespectful

    • halja

      November 4, 2014 at 8:51 am

      @ekalor- i echo you on your letter . The comments are actually kinda crazy. I was smh at the negative comments and the actual agreement to some of the negativity. Makes me wonder if people are just trolling, miserable and just can’t be happy for someone on their Bday, or just plain spiteful. I mean kim k comparison, wiki “researchers” , etc is no short of foolery. She’s built and is building a brand for herself, is married, and she’s got personality. So obviously she must be doing something right. Happy birthday Toke! #sheswinnin

      Sweety, why isn’t anybody just editing the information of well know people and celebrities on Wikipedia. My dear little things like this do matter. Imagine if she was running for a political post in the US for example, This age difference would have raised a storm. She had her brand image and name to protect.

    November 4, 2014 at 9:41 am

    I’m 25 presently but when people want to guess my age they always say 28-30; this means i have an older face and it makes me sad. If u people are busy guessing age based on different things you see; i would say you are wrong. She is not the first to shorten age?? Even some people increase their age for different purposes; just because she is in the limelight doesnt mean you all know her life. People she went to school with are saying 30; if you want to know her real age and continue your career in investigative Journalism, abeg go ask her MaMa. Thank you All. Happy birthday Tokstarr……..

    funny thing is Toke has a baby face, she even looks younger than 30 sef. can you compare her facially with Gbemi O.O? nah fam!
    She is what age she says she is, people need to transfer all that energy used in dissecting people’s lives to making theirs better.
    Awon haters oshi! mschew.

    Kai, why do people just feel they should type and type rubbish if I must say? I am not a Toke fan but my, I cant knock off her hustle! Do I know Toke? yeah from a distance. UNILAG days, English Language dept , Moremi things. Does she like ” notice me?” NO she LOVES notice me. Has she always been ” white” ? YES . Does she like kim, yup but before Kim came Angelina Jolie but beyond that is a down to earth lady, and hardworking too. Don’t know how she did it but am happy she achieved her goal _ TO BE FAMOUS. @ Toke, I wish you the very best in life children and love. I pray the next decade sees you fulfilling destiny as I pray that God sees you through. Happy 30th birthday.

    Happy birthday Toke. That aside, image is key in business. If you want to lie, please lie very well. On your Wikipedia page, you need to go and “”down-dated” your year of birth to 1984 to reflect your current age of 30 years dear. Presently, you are 34 on Wikipedia. How people for take you serious nah?

If I be man, na this kind woman I go like because she has the drive to do something positive with her life. The sky is your starting point girl. You do look your age.

    I am not even Nigerian…I am Ghanaian and reading the comments above I am so shocked and applalled at the hateful comments on here. I love Toke Makinwa, from her Instagram page to her YouTube channel,I always come away from her social media pages learning something from her. Yes you may not agree with everything she does but that’s not your business to judge, just learn from her. There was a line in her husband’s birthday greeting that touched me so much that I paused to reflect on it. He said “Your work ethic and drive should be studied as a course in making dreams come true!”. You haters seemed to have missed that part. I took serious notes on that. Instead of celebrating your own…you keep hating…other people who are not Nigerian like me are watching her closely and learning and taking notes as she rises. I am not surprised though, even the Bible did say that in Mark 6:4 that “Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own town, among his relatives and in his own home.”. So Toke keep doing your thing…don’t let the haters stop you, they are just fulfilling scripture just in the wrong way that’s all. My heartfelt prayer to GOD for you as you celebrate your birthday is that the Lord bless you and keep you, the Lord make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you, the Lord lift up His countenance upon you and give you His peace always-Numbers 6:24-26. Your work ethic inspires me so much. I am watching and learning. Thank you so much for being an inspiration to me.

    So so bad at the level of hate against this young lady. Damn….Nigerians, why are you guys so bitter?
    95% of these hateful comments are from young ladies who are supposed to lift one another up. What happened to the so called ‘ Girl Power’?Half of you don’t even know this young lady.Why do you all have to do this? And tomorrow you start calling God ET AL….
    Listen up people, Toke doesn’t need the satisfaction of your restrained regard…held hostage by your hateful heart… You fear her ease of way to be…you envy her because she gives herself permission to be present and free. The song she sings”gets on your nerves,” you’d like to ignore the melody heard… Why her happiness bothers you so much…her joy you feel is an oppressive curse… It’s so strange how life lived outside of you…frightens and angers “the hell out of you…”
    As you all HATERS are living your pain, leave her alone to live her dreams.
    Dear Toke, though I don’t agree/subscribe to most of your vlogs, I want you to be strong and know that there will always be those who will look to find fault in the simplest things you do…while others generously embrace you…and see only that which defines your best self…
    Keep challenging yourself to find the inner voice of responsibility and reason within yourself… Character is not a gift…it is the personal power you create in a world that owes you nothing…
    Keep doing YOU……You owe yourself that!

    This is not hating. This is calling out someone on their lies and bs. The women herself gave a different age. Wikipedia (claim it is u rleiabke all you want) has a different year. Little things like these is why Nigeria is how it is. Imagine a politician lying about their age or kyig about doing NYSC or falsifying college or NYSC documents, and some people defend them as hating or ‘she’s not the first to do it (a la Linda Ikeji). Wrong is wrong is wrong. There is no hating here.

    Happy Birthday Toke and claim your age, abeg. It’s getting ridiculous.

    I have realised tbat people just hate you for the fun of it.
    Wipe your tears, keep your head high and just block out all the negativity.
    Happy Birthday girl

    I was honestly surprised when I read she’s 30. I always thought she was older…maybe it’s the make-up or something. I Saw a pic of her on Instagram without make-up and she honestly looked wayyy younger. So I assume, it must be all that make up.

    But if she says she’s 30, her husband even bought her a “30 card”, I just have to believe she really is 30!

    WHy anyone will have to argue about how old she is baffles me. It’s possible she could have made a mistake when she said she was 19 in 1999. Please you guys shd let her be. If she’s done this much for herself at 30, then I salute her!!

    Happy Birthday Toke!!

I really respect you because you have taught me that no matter what people say, keep your head high. Thank You girl. Keep flying!
