      Chy, what you said is quite mean. However, I get your point on her choice of clothes. Toolz you don’t have to wear wrapper styles, you’ve won it too many times I’ve lost count. Try something new. I get the weight thing, some of us are facing it too. For a change you can wear black dresses (doesn’t have to be tight) or a sweet-heart neck-line (doesn’t have to be overly exposed) medium-sleeved A line dress. An A line dress will def work for you.

    Toolz shd pls cover the chest area…..its too much….and jst makes her looks mre stuffed….jst because you cnt flaunt legs doesn’t mean it’s all d boobs you’ll open….especially when they r that size…..its either d boobs are a size J or her push up bra is on anoda level

  11. Meah

    I know its easy for us all to stick with what we are comfortable in but methinks Toolz needs to re-jig her style. The wrap style suits her, yes, but this particular dress does nothing for her. The length cuts off her legs, making her appear chunky/stout. It may be time to find something else that works

    Toolz…those ankles though.. your ankles are FAT..not your fault, however the dress length and the cuff of our sandals makes it look really weird. I do agree you need to just change your look babes…this whole fitted dress thingy is getting old.

    Fally ipupa can so get it and some..:)

      June 29, 2015 at 9:11 pm

      sistah I said “DVF type dresses”. you know DVF’s signature dresses are the wrap dresses right?

      I don’t kno TopeFNR but the dress looks good. I just need Toolz to try some else.

    June 29, 2015 at 7:57 pm

    Toolz always the same hair, make up and figure hugging attire. Don’t listen to all these people hailing you, you are fat even though in your mind you think you are Kim kardashian urrm nope.

    June 29, 2015 at 8:44 pm

    Toolz, this look is tired. Retire it.

    But come oh, that her boyfriend is very wicked jor. And i say she dumps him for wasting her time. Why cant he just propose instead of allowing her go to events dressed like this with the possibility of catching someone’s eye in a serious way. A man always knows his wife to be as soon as he meets her. Sometimes it can take as little as three months of dating before marriage unlike some brothers who will take years..smh. They are just buying time jor.

    In fact, Toolz dont marry him if he proposes! It means he has been too indecisive and doesnt mind if someone gets there first! Girls take note oh. This ish is for real. Thank me later

    • Debee!

      June 30, 2015 at 7:17 am

      Err… madam he proposed already.

    • lady lala

      June 30, 2015 at 7:59 am

      Duh!! Look at u he already proposed.And they will be married soon so get your facts right. That being said, Tools hun I love u but ur outfits are a tad bit boring. You’re no longer restricted to the radio studio so now that you’re out there try n switch up your look to sth more interesting.

      @Cece ,you are such a latecomer,he proposed 1800 BC ,where have you been ? You need to come to civilization and be in tune sweets.

      That aside ,Toolz, you no try at all. what is this mess hun? Head to toe=Mess

  39. DAME

    June 30, 2015 at 9:36 am

    Someone finally spoke my mind…Dear TOOLZ….this style is old and no dont form “its my business haters back off” aunty u r supposedly a celebrity and subject to scrutiny forget what ya industry friends tell you…reduce ya weight a little bit to like one size down and re-jig your style
    My own question is IN WHAT CAPACITY WAS TOOLZ AT THAT AWARD??????????????? all over IG..she kept saying ” toolz does the BET award” i thot she was the main NC lmao…only Stephanie was here for the main show and was let thru the real red carpet….sigh.others…….steady famzing

    Can we name the look on Stephanie Coker’s face when the LA Live mic was interviewing the Blac Chyna and Amber Rose?? I’m a bit embarrassed with that picture alone!!! (don’t know what happened there though but it looked like Amber Rose and Blac Chy ignored Steph’s mic to LA Live)

    Am i the only seeing this but our so called entertainment journalists looked several seats behind these people on BET in terms of clothing and style??? I didnt want to see this because I know they would look hog-washed but i did and my guess was correct…. Im not judging on them though, they tried but mehn…. CLASS is another goal to achieve(Nigeria class is different from American class oo)…. Y won’t they give them the awards minutes before the event started???

    Toolz dear, spend good money and get a good Alex Mcqueen or (my best designer anytime/day) Ellie Saab dear…..they are not too pricey as such!!! Look classy for such awards!! One Love peeps! and the other peeple too…. those quirky designers are not doing u good sha!!

  41. Cece

    June 30, 2015 at 9:36 pm

    Well congrats to her. That’s great news..all the same he shouldve done it since. But better late than never i guess
