    Is it odd? Am I the only one that finds Tokes’ face expressionless all the time? Her face is always the same, flawless, plastic, devoid of emotion. Her eyes, always blank; no smizing.
    @Bellanaija, post my comment, you seldom do.

      Calm down, not trying to start anything.

    • I agree

      So true. I love her but I struggle with this everytime I see her face. Same look. Same stare. Same everything. This one is even creative I tell you. It’s usually the same hair same expression, same make-up. At least here we see a little life.

      Toke face is an example of, “fierce gone wrong”. And she’s trying to pull of the no smiling Kim k, you know that’s her idol. She always looks odd in her pics bcos she’s trying way too hard to be “fierce”.

    dear mania magazine, for u people to refer to toke makimwa as “new generation” it clearly shows u people don’t know what ur doing.

    how can toke makinwa be the new generation, how old is she?

    “class of 2015” really? u had to copy that caption from teen vogue. lol
    nigerians and their love for copying.

      Lmao I was going to say teen vogue too! Smh…Nigerians do have a lot of creativity to do. This picture looks depressing. She has no neck. The concept doesn’t make sense. Toke knows how to take selfies but come magazine she looks dead all the time. The photographs can’t even help. BACK TO LUPITAS VOGUE SHOOT.

    So where is Toke? I love how all her pictures always look nothing like the real Toke in real life.

    @miajadore. Lmao. Whenever I see her pictures I just laugh. We know what toke looks like but hey, if she’s making money off filters and photoshop, all well and good. That being said, I would never have thought kelechi amadi obi would succumb to this overuse of Photoshop. Picture doesn’t look real at all

    Okay, settle down guys! No fighting… just kidding. I’d like to think I’m objective with my opinions. I’m not a fan of Toke’s but…. Yall realize it’s the magazine that’s whack right? The makeup artist they hired used way too much makeup on her and their creative team over-edited the photos. It’s just whack, period – but it’s not because of her face. Even the floating head’ style turned out to be an epic fail. Blame the mag yo ?
