    this might be a genuine friendship but Toke is a hustler…. looking for people to help her career, more connection, more fame and hopefully leads to more pay! i say nothing wrong with that!!!

    If I remember how Toke entered this Bonang. It was on that same Instagram… I can’t forget because yes I follow both of them. While some of u are just doing monitoring spirit Toke is moving uo …FAST.. OK how their friendship started.. Toke ‘s caption after she put up Bonang’s pic ‘ I don’t know you but I just love your work ethic bla bla bla’ before u knew it Bonang thanked her and must have saw her following plus Googled her and saw she had quite a rep in Naija.. She now followed her back and like they say the rest is history. If you are still sleeping on your social media… You Berra wake up… Solid networking is going down there especially Instagram.. But to help your market to get into the big league… Better post yourself in luxury fashion, jet setting, first class, etc if not nothing for u …*tongue out*

      That’s some true shii.
      I knew Bonang was looking for a leg up, particularly as she seemed keen on integrating into Nigeria’s market.

      Bonang or Toke looking for a leg up… Better Google Bonang Matheba before u showcase ya ignorance on Bella Naija…She has been on all major covers … Not your local Thisday style or Genevieve magazine wen people for here nor even dey buy again …. GQ, Glamour, Cosmopolitan, TrueLove ….Ciroc , Revlon ambassador…. E entertainment africa TV host. has her own lingerie line in all Woolworths stores… I envy Toke walahi… This chick will help Toke break into the more established SA market .

      @the truth read Bonang’s recent interview with Bella you’ll see she desperately wants to enter the Nigerian entertainment market and doesn’t hide the fact that she’s trying to network her way up there

    • Mr. Egghead

      May 12, 2016 at 8:17 am

      @The Truth . . I already know who Bonang Matheba is. You’re tripping if you think she’s going to waltz into Nigeria and blow up because she’s some star from SA

      what about people like us that dont have jet setting,luxury fashion and so on, what should we do? no wonder there is a great increase in runs in nigeria, everyone wants to fit in

    Lol. You just took that out of my mind, i was gonna say just that. She’s a confirm, smart hustler. And shes doing it right. naming her, chit chatting her, etc. Wont be surprised if Toke become involved in the Africa, Nig E! project.

      My goodness @ose, you are wicked oh! I clicked on the link and almost choked when I sighted Toke.

      You do not tell a lie. A step up has been achieved.

      Toke resembles Iya Sikira elewa in that picture i laughed out sooooo LOUD.
      thank God for the Upgrade button in her life

    • Eno

      Nothing wrong with an upgrade. If you are still in the same spot you were 5 years ago, you should be reassessing yourself.

    Wow I like her fashion sense

    My take on this is that while this may be a genuine friendship Toke like someone mentioned earlier is a serious hustler.. I bet she has her eyes on a gig with E! Network too and bonang might jusy be a huge step towards achieving that. Toke doesn’t kuku hide her own when it comes to famzing to get what u want + i can say they are birds of the same feather. Never seen any1 as narcissitic on social media.Toke is taking it a tad bit too far and it’s getting irritating.. But hey what do i know.. Goodluck to them
