    he still loves her. ?

      I don’t think so. His long epistle on how she will soar comes across as being politically correct. What do you expect? He dares not vilify her especially considering he cheated with concrete evidence in flesh and blood. Anyways, who vilifies an ex except Donald Trump. He loved her once and there will always be some likeness somewhere. Toke is bubbly it will be difficult not to like her. Plus she loved him shamelessly (which is fine – nothing wrong with that) He knows it but the he goat gene in men will not let him be. Anita’s son is his second child. So, he is used to philandering and his women taking it. I just wish Toke all the best. I pray she finds a deserving man who will love her and appreciate her hustle. I hope he finds himself. Marrying one and doing another to the point of borning is a no no. He should Hv divorced her first then move on rather than shitting in church like he did. I hope he has learnt his lessons.

    • Toke fake all around

      October 9, 2016 at 3:25 pm

      He didnt really marry her… church wedding no trad no engagment no bride price. That is not a real marriage but Toke fakeness that forces him to court.

      I applaud him for living his truth and not what the media or Toke wants him to live…… he stood her up in the registry that she organised, there been many signs he did not want to be with Toke but she manipulates the media and u can see he felt trapped …… she forced the court weddinh to happen using the media, none of his family was there neither did he do church or engagement

      Good that he is free and free to be with who he wants .. what Toke present to the media is far from reality so until you are close to them , it then u know how TOKE lies lies and keep lying as she social climbing her way up

      Please Kay this guy has moved on, I do not see him as a bad person!men from that part of Nigeria are generally polygamous in nature! I remember Elvina Ibru saying same! If you are dating an Itsekiri, Urobho or Ijaw guy from Delta State that is a guy , I mean not runing things with God as a believer , know that they will cheat and God help you again if he is a brat! This guy is very matured and is done with Toke! So nobody should ever try to confuse her! She is doing great for herself and I am sure, she will find an excellent suitor soon!

      What is he selling? What are we buying? Was there any point to the interview? If it was to repair his image in the public eye, this was terribly executed. Come see foolish question followed by even more foolish answers! “I’m still learning, I’m still growing!” Did they not even have a pre-interview chat to go over what would be discussed? It’s obvious he hasn’t seen his new child yet the interview question on his feelings about that still went ahead?! Na wah!

    Ehennnnn dis matter don reach here Lool. Oya let us dissect lol. My own is that this guy is almost 50 and he seems to still not know his left from his right lol. And aww he still seems stuck on Toke. He didn’t even acknowledge Anita. All in all he seems like a cool guy. Wish u the best mate. Goodluck with the self discovery

    So you know humans can be vicious? It’s not our fault that you cheated on your wife with your ex na. What would you call that? Being nice? You are also guilty of the same viciousness. The good thing is that you at least admit to still learning. It will help you. I hope you get it right next time.
    As for the #teamanita…… he has still not married her o. I wonder why?

      Don’t mind them. All they know is that because Toke wears makeup and has an active social life (which is what puts food on the table), she doesn’t deserve happiness. Same way they’ve dehumanized Kim K. As if their staying home and not wearing heavy makeup has stopped their own baes from cheating. What I learned from my mother’s generation; even if you lick his feet, cook like a chef, do all the hotness senrenre, build from scratch, be his companion, work or stay home, bae that will cheat, will cheat. Toke carry go joh, many of them are staying and taking worse, but they’re not the ones on bellanaija so they can open their mouths and start judging

      “As if their staying home and not wearing heavy makeup has stopped their own baes from cheating. ”

      Aren’t you doing the same thing to “them” you just criticised them for doing?

      EE leave the sarcastic comments for people that do it well e.g. Bodundade and Egghead because at least they have comprehensive skills. You on the other hand, can’t understand a simple comment which means that women should do what they want because a partner that will cheat, will cheat. Now grab a Comprehension book and run along.

      Seconded! In fact, the only man that won’t cheat is the man with erectile dysfunction.

      “You on the other hand, can’t understand a simple comment which means that women should do what they want because a partner that will cheat, will cheat.”:

      I did, you clearly state it here: ” What I learned from my mother’s generation; even if you lick his feet, cook like a chef, do all the hotness senrenre, build from scratch, be his companion, work or stay home, bae that will cheat, will cheat.”

      That would have been the simple comment, the rest was just you ignoring the golden rule.

      Sarcasm: the use of words that mean the opposite of what you really want to say especially in order to insult someone, to show irritation, or to be funny.

      I was pointing out hypocrisy, maybe we ought to share that comprehension book?

      Aww you clearly didn’t understand the point in the first instance which was “do what you want because he will still cheat” so your long epistles are inherently unnecessary. Your entire premise and unfortunate desire to come off as witty is well, unfortunate. You do need the comprehensive skills though, add some critical thinking while you’re at it.

    Ok I love this man already. He seems so calm, laid back,cool and collected. Most of all, he speaks so well of his estranged wife. There is still so much love brewing in their hearts and if they’re meant to be, I hope they see past all of these storm and get together again.

    Maje seems like a man I’d want to be with but sadly, he’s not gay.

    Love you Maje and Toke. ?

      Second: Don’t sell yourself short. There are lots of other men to fantasise about without resorting to expensively-educated, yet emotionally immature 40-something-year olds. Did you watch the interview? He is not really crush material.

    What did you learn. People can be vicious. I Do GOOD Work. What a frigging moron. Maje or magic or nonsense or whatever your name is. It seems you didn’t learn that you are irresponsible and a cheat and it doesn’t pay to be. He has no remorse. What an entitled so and so. And I’m not even a toke fan. I just hate that this man will be accepted by another gullible naija girl and do the exact same thing again.

    You all should not be fooled by this man. Toke has filed for divorce and he’s just trying to clean up his image for when they face the judge.

    I think this guy is trying to look like a victim. No remorse for the insults and public humiliation he put Toke through, no remorse for the bad reputation he has given to his baby mama Anita.

    It’s even possible he’s planning to marry Anita after divorce has been granted but they’re pretending that nothing is happening so he looks good in court.

    Let’s see: you cheated on your wife, you had a baby with the woman you had an affair with and your wife filed for divorce. In this interview, you didn’t acknowledge any wrong doing, you kept saying, ‘it’s part of who I am’, yada yada. Thank God Toke got the sense to walk away.

    Love him or hate him. I think he’s finally decided to live in his truth. In the interview I saw a genuine good person that is afraid of hurting people. This trait makes him appear to be people pleaser. Maybe that was why he bowed to pressure to marry Toke.He’s human and admits that much. Just because Toke uses the media to her advantage does not make her innocent. We never lived with them and may never understand what went down in their marriage and perhaps what the guy went through. Toke is no victim and should being perceived as one.

    Oh I love and respect my dad each day, cheating was never ever an issue and oh he related so well with both genders. Has a great marriage with my mum. I grew up to know cheating from friends and media. Men be an example to your children. Women who say all men are cheats or liars say so because their father did so, you are the definition of manhood to your children give it a good meaning

    The best revenge is your paper. If Toke was jobless or waiting for MAje to give her money, he wouldn’t have enough respect for her as he seems to have, even though i think it’s all an act by him. I think him and Toke were tired of each other, I doubt if they would’ve lasted with or without Anita in the picture. Ladies should enpower themselves so if the man wants to go, let him go.

    Honestly, Peace, ur comment is so apt as well as Anonymous’s last comment. Even me being female know that our breed constitute the higher percentage of why some men will succumb to temptation. There will be women out there who looks better, behaves better, cooks better, hustles better etc than a man’s wife. It takes among others DISCIPLINE, CONTENTMENT, UNCONDITIONAL LOVE FOR ONE’S SPOUSE AND ESPECIALLY GRACE OF GOD to not succumb to other women’s enticing ways. And do women out there entice other people’s husbands?, I’m very positive of that. Do married men chase unmarried ladies that aren’t interested in looking for married men to entice?, Absolutely true. However, in Toke and Maje’s case , both might be at fault. And its beyond Maje stepping out of marriage to father a child with another woman, or Toke being too busy for her husband…… BUT NO ONE WILL EVER KNOW BECAUSE it is evident that THEY RESPECT EACH OTHER and always HOVER ROUND THE SUBJECT when being interviewed. They haven’t really pointed at what the issues were. And its actually no one’s business.

    This man is just an idiot. No remorse whatsoever. He’s just calm as if he’s not a cheating pig. This is a relationship between two foolish people. The man is a cheating, abusive pig and the woman is a piece of trash with low self esteem. She tolerated his cheating when she was his girlfriend an fiancée, why can’t she tolerate anymore?? I have always said it.All men are cheaters. Most do it without remorse because Nigerian women are fools that would tolerate men’s excesses

    He is just a weak f- boy. He can’t even confidently claim to be a good dad or that his some resembles him. Who is he good for ? Not Toke, not Anita and not even the kid. Delta mothers pls raise responsible men not these useless sperm donors filling society with their illegitimate children.

  24. hadiza

    October 9, 2016 at 6:55 pm

    @Suvwe, if men were not busy cheating and raping women, they would be able to participate in the raising of their children. What do they even want to instill in them?? the spirit of abuse, or is it the spirit of rape?? The whole burden falls on women to raise kids and these women still end up training abusers and cheaters and throwing them into society. I see no way forward.

    i think Toke and Anita are both weak women to have wasted 10 years with Maje. but im glad Toke has moved on, made a solid name for herself but Anita on the other hand seems very very emotionally weak, and i wont be surprised if she gets pregnant for him again… ahh well… not all women can be strong…

    All these comments, and not one, warned me not to waste my data watching the video!
    Daris god oh!
    Maje is pooo. Interviewer is numbskull. Toke shld, and I believe has moved on. Whatever he n Anita does wit their lives is not our business anymore, after all he didn’t marry d mother of his first child, Toke was d reason I knew him, now dey re no more, he ceases to exist.
    Why grant an interview when u av prepared ur mind not to give answers! ‘I’m still leaning’ ‘the relationship is a part of my life’ ‘see d baby’s pix n tell if he looks like me’ ‘I did good’ ‘people can be judgemental’. All VAGUE answers!
    As far as I’m concerned d interview ended d moment he said he is Sapele, cis dat is d only clear point he made.
    Toke deserves better…intelligent go-getter! Mywomancruch!

    BTW, I’m a realtor. So if u need apartments/office space in Lagos (buy/rent) Holla me! Call/SMS/Whatsapp. My hustle must pay like Toke’s… LOL?
