    Lmao..this girl is crazy. Runs work ain’t no job abeg and it’s definitely nothing to be proud of.

      And yet, I’ve never heard of runs girls raping these men or forcing them to engage in illicit affairs with them, have you?

    Haven’t watched the video. But I agree with the topic. Most Nigerians have perfected the art of pretense. Our pretense culture has painted all Nigerian girls with one brush. If an Oyibo woman is a prostitute, she would tell you up front, but a naija girl, she will probably be a fire breathing, speaking in tongues sister in the church. and be whoring on the side, so how can we tell who is decent and who isn’t? Please you guys should own your runzzzz status. Help us separate the wheat from the chaff. For the men, that’s even worse! You will see Nigerian men with very questionable characters and obvious sexual deviance, calling God in every sentence. Their facebook pages would be riddled with biblical verses. Even our corrupt leaders call God in every sentence. I remember Dino Melaye the serial wife beater, calling God during the whole saga, lol.

      “Probably smells like old age and death” poison ivy, this is unacceptable “age shaming”! Old age and death, we will all get there someday, I hope you remember this when you do. You can make your comment without making old age look like a crime……….

    Bleaching is a form of runs. So toke dear, own your runs and quit hiding your knees and knuckles. We all know what it is 😉

    • lala land

      April 24, 2015 at 8:52 pm

      This Nigerians constant acquisition of people bleaching is getting out of hand..u do understand that some people are naturally light shebi…Looking at Toke’s past pictures, she has always been light, and foundation can do a lot of wonders……just saying

    • shomi

      April 25, 2015 at 6:45 pm

      No dear…she bleached… some of you are just knowing Toke….she was dark like Ini Edo from way back in Unilag

    Toke makinwa when u give birth to a baby girl and she’s all grown and for watever reasons known to her decides to become a runs girl, I hope u will be able to look her dead straight in d eye and tell her, ‘MY DAUGHTER, U ARE A RUNS GIRL, OWN IT!, THERES NO SHAME IN IT’

  13. Been there

    April 24, 2015 at 6:55 pm

    Toke, you have a lot of guts to be preaching this. why have you never owned your own past of doing runs in Unilag? hahahahaha…..joker! or is there a moral lesson here? seeing as you are not letting that stop you in making something of yourself? Toksymama i hail you o!

    • Sigh!

      April 24, 2015 at 10:07 pm

      I assume you were a runs girl in Unilag, that’s how you know right?

    • been there

      April 24, 2015 at 11:55 pm

      Very wrong, did not need runs in school. Also, I said unilag to avoid giving specific details. Did Toke not have coursemates or room mates? Why do u think a lot of people go after her on social media? If u don’t know, then close ur mouth. Btw I doubt Toke cares one bit about these things

      There is no need to throw harsh words at her. She did not proclaim herself as a motivational speaker so there ain’t no need for edifying words. Watching her vlogs overtime has shown some depth. while I may not support her view on this issue does not rule out the fact that this is her opinion. Let’s hear yours……

    If you want to eat a toad a big one so that when people call you ‘toad-eater’ you will nod your head with pride.
    What Toke has said in many words had already been summarised by wise elders very many years ago.

    what a stupid and condescending advice! i hope Toke is not begining to loose her sanity?! how can you advice people to uphold prostitution a crime(at least in nigeria). Toke i know you are influential so please influence positively except this is a joke.

  22. you know

    April 24, 2015 at 8:57 pm

    Toke you are such an empty vessel! you ask of something you can’t give. how fake is everything about you from you accent to the colour of your skin, to you hiding all your insecurities so the world don’t see through you, Guess what! you are fooling no one . I don’t expect anything better from a retired one. Because u manage to find husband after twisting his arms don’t make you better, take two sits to the left. If they have given you a voice use it wisely and stop spitting out poison.

      Hi, have you finished filling your own vessel? Bloody beef Lord. . .You sound jealous of her especially when you say she managed to find husband. IF you had yours and we’re happy with the choice you’ve made, would it affect you or would you even care if she has a husband or not? But you are not fake, no o, you are original? sooo original ability? You better stop watching her vlogs since it upsets you soo much and no one is using your ‘ original ‘ fingers to press play!

    April 24, 2015 at 9:03 pm

    I see no crime in what she said, let’s face fact here everyone has their own reasons of going into runs or prostitution. You don’t know how tough it is for young girls out there, especially those who have lost everything but are left with no option but to hustle. Don’t be a hater, not saying runs is good, but if u are one own it be proud no pretence, the way u worked your ass into it one day you will work your ass out of it

  24. you know

    April 24, 2015 at 9:14 pm

    oke you are such an empty vessel! you ask of something you can’t give. how fake is everything about you from you accent to the colour of your skin, to you hiding all your insecurities so the world don’t see through you, Guess what! you are fooling no one . I don’t expect anything better, bcos u married don’t make u no saint,take two sits to the left. If they have given you a voice use it wisely and stop spitting out poison.

      May 7, 2015 at 3:57 pm

      Can we see your picture/what you look like, since you yourself looks nothing like a toad but instead like the creature God’s hands created? Enterprising donkey? The hate is real. HATER Oshi! Stay hating and speculating while home girl is earning and calculating. It is paining you isn’t it?

      Don’t mind her, why didn’t she own it when she was heavily into runs In unilag

    April 24, 2015 at 10:57 pm

    Toke you are 30 and yet looks like 60. If that is not the handiwork of runs in overdrive(accelerated ageing) then i wonder what it is. All this fake ass wanabee celebrities claiming to work so hard to earn their way….make we hear word jare.

    All this beef from women, some who I suspect are members of the “Runs Girl” gang masquerading as something else. Abeg practice your profession without bitterness, like the babe said, its nothing serious. I love watching this babe’s videos though. Cracks me up with the faces and controversial talk. Keep it up.

    Seems all the runz girls are not happy with this thread, lol. You guys better own up to your lifestyle instead of hiding in churches and pretending like there’s no tomorrow. We don’t know who is who any more. Every naija girl today is suspect of doing runz because of these goats who are pretending to be sheep. So Toke I agree one hundred percent with you.

It don’t change shit, she is more beautiful than you and still has it going. Run along biatches! Insecured biatches finding non-existent reasons to hate this fine fun girl. Smdh

  42. Que

    April 25, 2015 at 9:20 pm

    Erhmmm……. what if she’s your husband’s runs, should she OWN IT with pride too!???!!!

    Just asking, not implying he has….but when you start throwing stones in the market place, it just might land on your loved ones head. This is like asking thieves to be comfortable with their loot and victims in the full glare of the public, knowing they might be recognised and made to pay d price…. or even to display their gold (maga) before other thieves?….

    Please this ‘owning it’ business doesnt make you cool if you end up sounding confused….. Talk about ‘…they work hard, and work harder than others…’ . Seriously?!

  43. Pankere

    April 26, 2015 at 8:08 pm

    April 27, 2015 at 4:01 am

    It kills me that ppl can talk of ‘honest work’ in one of the most corrupt nations in the world (and I LOOOVE Nigeria but lets call a spade a spade) as if there was a booming job market in our nation, girls wouldn’t be out there trying to make ends meet with a 9-5. But there isn’t and above all your moral high grounds is our base instinct of survival. Do what you have to as long as you can live with it and can answer for whatever when it comes time to do so.

    April 27, 2015 at 2:07 pm

    Common you guys, someone has to take on the monumental responsibility to entertain the married men of Lagos (Nigeria). And Toke is telling them to own it cause it’s hard work. I just hope she doesn’t go berserk when one of them owns up to being her husbands entertainer. *Tongue in Cheek*

    April 28, 2015 at 3:27 pm

    Toke is a growing puppy,don’t blame her,that’s what most of them are into and they claim celeb,most of them can’t cope with there hubby since politicians are investing in them,instead to work on PHCN and other good things.HISS
