    Toke Makinwa has always wanted fame and be out there. So, it must be dream come true for her that celebrities attended her mom’s birthday. Happy birthday, mama Toke.

      Perhaps you should pursue your own dreams/ambitions. You might turn out as fortunate as toke.

      LOL yeeessss

      So, you think you are throwing shade. You are real Olodo. I am pursuing my own dream and so far turning out well. I’m more than fortunate bcos God has done more than what I even expected.

      I wasn’t throwing shade at her, I respect her hustle. Just referring to when she mentioned how a guy broke up with her bcos she was nobody at that time. And she made she she became famous and become a somebody. I’m only confirming that her dream came to pass.

      I see I hit a raw nerve there! so sorry darling.

      While I am so happy that like toke, you are pursuing your dreams and making great success of it, perhaps you should take some writing classes to enable you articulate your thoughts better. It will save you the trouble of being misunderstood in the future. You might also do well to pick some lessons on emotional intelligence on the way so that you learn how to be less emotional when it isn’t necessary.

      Olodo rabata!!!! I couldn’t resist coming down to your level….lol! xoxo

      God bless you for that comment.

    • Jade

      July 19, 2016 at 1:57 am

      My statement is VERY clear. You clearly lack comprehension skills. And Obviously, you are the one who lacks emotional intelligence bcos you chose to be petty and pick a fight for no reason. Learn to choose what battle to fight bcos you made a fool of yourself. Go back to read my statement when you are in your right mind and you will see how clear my statement is instead of misinterpreting it.

      You and the others who liked your comment are probably the same ones always bashing Toke on here. Y’all can get lost. I said, my opinion so if you want to go kill yourself over Toke’s matter go ahead. I stand 100% by what I said.

    • Seriously

      July 19, 2016 at 7:24 am

      Damn, you must be Toke herself. You tookk the comment to heart. You ok? It ain’t even that serious.
      Toke probably saying somewhere. I’m famous, beeches don’t care what the crazy blogs say

      @Jade, your comment and unnecessary beef is played out. Most people are tired of hating on this girl. Get a life already!

    • Jade

      July 19, 2016 at 2:02 am

      I’m not hating. You guys are the ones with heart of hate to easily think another person is hating. She said, her dream was to be famous. And I said, her dream came true with all the celebrities at her mom’s birthday. Nothing wrong with what I said.

    • aj

      July 19, 2016 at 3:57 am

      your first statement looked like shade and sounded condescending.

    • Jade

      July 19, 2016 at 1:40 pm

      You should be smart enough to know just bcos it looks or sounds like something doesn’t mean it is.
      People learn to expand your vocabulary. “Hating” and “shade” is overused unnecessarily. Come up with sensible words.

      @Jade relax yourself.

      You sound really pinched.

    • Jade

      July 19, 2016 at 7:07 pm

      I made my comment but people decided to carry Toke’s matter on their head. Their own guilty conscience is worrying them and want to be dramatic. So, assess your brain well and figure out who is pinched? Abeg, go to sleep.

      Thelma Ojiji is the truth! Dayummmnn! That girl is foine!! Is she dating anyone. Eyin BN profilers….where can I meet her? Let me try my luck with her if she is free and wants to mingle.

      Why do Estanola and Kunbi look like alien life forms? Is it the eye makeup or too much contouring? Ah dunno…..

      i think its a new snapchat filter. stuff is ridiculous. Various filters that can turn u purple, put flowers in your hair and then make you look alien like by enlarging your eyes.
      Biko what does kmt mean? I feel it will go here but cant use it as i dunno what it means

    I just love Toke…………she is the epitome of girl power. happy birthday to your mum.


    July 18, 2016 at 3:30 pm

    So those pple are celebs?. sorry dear,they are normal human beings that have one head,two eyes and one body. Them no fall from heaven so Toke doesn’t have to wish. Whether they attend or naa,the party will hold.

    They all slay.
    Aunty BN, please how can I send my sob story on your platform? Thanks

  5. You are an idiot,sorry ignoramus

    July 18, 2016 at 3:37 pm

    Which of the celebrities present is more than Toke?you evil children of hate and bad upbringings,trained only to give negative comments,you will die of hatred and bigotry.

    • Avia

      July 18, 2016 at 5:57 pm

      I read quite a few comments like this on most Toke post even though there is absolutely no negative or “evil” comments about her, and always wondered why. The same tone and obviously the same person with multiple comments. Are you deliberately trying to start drama on any posts about Toke? Because if you liked her, you would leave a positive and complimentary comment, as opposed to flooding the post with comments like these. “Bigotry, hate, character assassination”…. ? You spent way too much time and energy on trivia nonsense, it is never that serious.

    Kunbi’s dress is so hawt! ?

    July 18, 2016 at 3:51 pm

    All this paid negative commentators,trying very hard to wipe up tribal and useless sentiments in Toke and some names not from their tribe,play your last card,very soon Nigeria will start going after online karachikas that are always ready to promote negative hatefilled comments,Germany rounded some people promoting hate online today,some will be in for upwards of five years in prison.Bloggers promoting character assassination be warned,the day of reckoning is coming.

      July 18, 2016 at 7:34 pm

      That’s very right, she is an orphan. A child doesn’t have to come out of you to be yours.

    July 18, 2016 at 7:45 pm

    Lovely! No offence but Tiwa really looks like that witch from Malificient, maybe it’s the eyebrows or eye makeup,I don’t know.

  27. @Avia or Awoof

    July 18, 2016 at 7:48 pm

    You may be paid as a negative evil Provocature,but be sure you are living a useless life,we know you,children trained by bad negative upbringing on tolerance and mutual respect.The pattern us the same,just the name brings out negative comment.shioooor.
