      Maje is selfish. He could have just called her and told her all of these, but he had to make her birthday all about HIM. Toke had been on her birthday countdown for about a week now and he figured all her fans/family & friends would shower her with attention and gifts, so he decided to draw attention to himself. If he hasn’t made peace with her in person it’s very selfish to put her on the spot like this. If he has, him and his wife should take their thing off social media. This is childish.

  26. missappleberry

    November 3, 2015 at 2:14 pm

    Meanwhile, i think all Toke’s articles on BN, have an automatic approval setting. You don’t even need to wait for long before the comments section starts booming. If per comment on BN was charged, say 1000naira, i can imagine how much BN will be making from Toke’s articles. It would be a bestseller!

    • Iris

      November 3, 2015 at 3:11 pm

      I keep saying Toke needs to start making money off blog and website comments. Take my comment for instance. I haven’t said anything related to the post and that’s already 100 naira.

  27. I have said it

    November 3, 2015 at 2:17 pm

    I have said it and i will keep saying it,

    Forget all these thrash you read on BN by BNers.

    If you as a girl follow the comments of people here on BN, you will end up in a bottomless pit. All the people giving you advises will remove the shock from your leg and realize no one is with you. Just and your life alone Many of them knows what they are enduring in their marriage & relationships, they will come here and blab.

    Divorce him!,
    Carry your load and go!
    Move on!
    He doesnt deserve you!
    He is a d- head!
    He is this, he is that……..for where?

    Toke even replied Maje by dropping a love icon on his post!

    I know one now, the husband will beat her, carry girls come house, remove their wedding pics, not get close to her for months, not see her, stay away from home…all kinds and manner of abuse. She don divorce him? for where? After all the advice, she no gree go o.

    Toke do this, Toke do that, for where?
    It is the height of abuse & cheating, impregnating another girl. Carry your kaya and move on,, for where?

    Dey there dey deceive yourself.
    Follow BN comments and BNers, you will end up being all alone

    • Cindy

      November 3, 2015 at 2:43 pm

      The way you people scare women with ‘you will be alone’ though. What is so bad about being alone?

    • Nne

      November 3, 2015 at 3:16 pm

      Please don’t bother replying….. truth is some women would rather be abused than have peace of mind on their own. I like Toke but if she has decided to stay with Maje then that is her cross to carry. I wish her more success this coming year

    • I have said it

      November 3, 2015 at 3:22 pm

      You have a problem with comprehension, go back to school.

      Cindy cindy

      I realized you are on every post and always following people everywhere. I have been wondering why till i saw your comment on this

      “I’ve always felt very pressured and insecure for being very dark-skinned and extremely short. Ice spent the better half of my life looking up at people than looking down. There was a period I would fight with the lady who sells make up to me until she gave me a lighter shade of foundation. My love for heels is not from here. That did not get me a boyfriend o. Anyway recently, I’ve been able to work on myself and accept me for who I am.”

      I wish i could insult you but i am refraining so you don’t go hang yourself.

      Refrain !

    • Yep

      November 3, 2015 at 5:19 pm

      @Ugly cindy,
      You just showed the whole world you are the really ugly person – going as far as digging into a person’s past post and using it against them is not just petty, it is damn ugly. Look at your self in the mirror.

      I bet Cindy’s comment must have touched you somehow for you to have gone this far. Na real wa.

      November 3, 2015 at 3:21 pm

      @ I have said it, the one you know whose husband beats her, carries girls to their house, doesn’t touch her for months and abuses her left right and centre has been struck either from Stockholm syndrome, enjoys being a slave or lacks confidence. Hers is the height of abuse and one of these days she’ll end up in the hospital or replaced by the side chicks. People will always advise and warn you, it’s left for you to do what’s best for YOU. If you enjoy being a man’s punching sack and ego booster that’s your cuppa tea.

    November 3, 2015 at 2:27 pm

    Uncle Majooo, well done.
    BN fam, the man says he loves his wife and wishes her well on her birthday. He did not forget what happened he just want to let it go,shey, Uncle Maje?
    Seriously, does cheating on one’s spouse mean no love or less love for the spouse?
    Personally, I think its disrespect to spouse/marriage institution and self(the cheat) , lots more & not necessarily no love.(not forgetting sin against God,grace is available, right?).
    I believe you Uncle Maje, you love your wife.
    Happy Birthday,Toke..
    All ya waiting for comments, I am waiting too…grabs bounty and chill water

    Toke i dont know you personally but the way you handle the media mehn you were born for it.
    Maje please gerarahia with your stupid memories, memories you forgot when you were gbenshing calabar babe on the steady sotaayyy you con give her belle. Someone will come and love Toke and give her the world and treat her the true way she as a queen deserves to be treated and you and calabar babe can get all the wonderful scoops and stories right here on BN. Gosh Naija men and their nerve, you go and cheat and think bringing up memories from the past will wash it all away, before i close my eye and open it FIAM from this place now!

    November 3, 2015 at 2:51 pm

    The thing people don’t understand is, Toke is used to dis s**t. From what Iv heard he’s cheated uncountable times during dis her 10yrs a slave relationship. And Toke has always forgiven and taken him back. This is the way dere relationship operates, I heard dere is even another child earlier in d rltshp, he begged, she forgave. Toke is not going away ya’ll,she never will. If Stella dimoko didn’t break this news, no one would have known abt it. Maje Ayida is one confused guy. If Toke is satisfied being in dis abusive relationship, and believe me this is abuse, because one shldnt constantly be in pain just bcos you are trying to love someone. I wish Toke well, but I believe only death can keep dese two ppl apart. There’s some crazy love out dere in d world……….

    Besides the use of the word ‘wife’, this post reads like someone who admires another’s career achievement. Nothing lovey-dovey about it. It must be tough to live through life’s ups and downs in the public eye, but for all we know, they’re both enjoying all the attention.

Mind you, you see me here often because I’m jobless. Yes I said so. I just wrote my final exams and I’m awaiting my results and nysc callup letter. You on the other hand that has been monitoring me, don’t you have something else to do?

    Love and humans are complicated. Mix the 2, you get complication. Some things are left unexplained. As far it is not life threatening and affecting your soul and well being, amends can be made.

    Yes!!! Finally an opportunity has come for me to use this expression I only recently picked up from my fellow Bellanaijarians. Here goes nothing: “Yeye dey smell!” There, I said it! (grabs plate of beans). You can all continue…
