      seeing as the slit is in the centre, one simply needs to cross one’s legs. done.

    1 Wear one ,and practice how to sit wearing it.
    2 Common! After all her sweat, a free link is what you want? Not fair at all .

    any man who attends this female orgy of hatred and man-bashing is an idiot and he should return his bro card. he should also replace his balls and penis with a vagina. nonsense

    number 1 bro code:bros before hoes. men should learn to stick together and support their fellow men no matter the situation.

    majid I stand with u. #istandwithmajid

    ebuka dotun shame on u guys. congratulations u are now men with vaginas. make sure to cross ur legs when u sit down from now on.

      It’s sad that boys are taught to owe no loyalty to women while girls are taught being a good woman is all about loyalty , fidelity , respect for your man ! What a shame.

      Meanawhila…why do you make vaginas sound like such a bad thing? I mean I know you aint seen one since you came out of your mamas but you need to chill brah. Vags (on a good day) are warm, juicy, fleshy, look like flowers, have their own self-cleaning plumbing and wield a boat load of power. Don’t knock it till you try it…save up for yours today ?

      More grease to your joint bro. You captured it all Apt. Selling your privacy for a few wads of naira is sick and disgusting. Why hasnt one of the pu$$¥ guys at the lauch toasted her since she is a strong woman.? We sweep our cultural beliefs under the carpet and adopt western ways of life hook, line and sinker instead of trying to blend both to help ourselves. Can a Nigerian woman hit stardom and fame through porn like Kim K or can a strip dancer in Nigeria post her nude pictures on social media?


    November 27, 2016 at 11:05 pm

    Why do the other pictures look like the celebrities were doing something else and BN scooped the images from their insta pages????! All the best Toke, after reading Charles Novia’s memoir/biography on the working of Nollywood, I kind of gave up on biographies! But maybe that’s a poor example! I hope people learn and pick up from ur examples.

    November 27, 2016 at 11:19 pm

    Toke, if your story is TRUE, and you are indeed the victim in all these wahala, I hope you find the strength your pain was meant to inspire!
    Let your breakup specifically make you learn and grow. Never ask ‘Why me’ again ..and may you arm yourself with knowledge of self-love and self-worth in such a way that no one could take advantage of a weakness in you like your ex did.

    any man who buys this book is a bloody disgrace. to manhood. #boycotttoke.
    this is a hateful book written to spite and get back at her ex and his baby mama

    toke u are not the first woman to be cheated on so pls get over urself. so many more beautiful intelligent women have been cheated on by their husbands or boyfriends and they didn’t capatilize on it to make a profit. example Gabrielle union, halle berry, seinna miller. they bowed out gracefully. its tacky unintelligent women who do what u are doing right now.

    according to the sound bites I have read u not only tore majid down but u tore his baby mama. blaming her that she was the reason u started bleaching. really?

    let me be the one to tell u now, it never ends well for bad people. u think its a game and u are getting revenge but this will bite u back in the butt. karma no dey expire.

      I thought his name is Maje? Or was there a last minute name change I aint aware of?

    • EE

      Maybe Maje is the tushed up nickname, for all we know Bruno is his personal pesin.

      November 28, 2016 at 11:07 am

      it is tupid irrelevant men like you and your father that cheat. No honour, no class. Beg for money from their woman, sorry women, and write junk on social media. Rest in Peace, your irrelevance will not be missed.

    Go girl Toke!!!
    Quick question? When she starts to cash in money from her book, can Maje and Anita Have rights to get their share from the book legally if they pursue?

    • Person

      November 28, 2016 at 11:40 am

      Pursue gini? Unless she lied in her book and they sue for libel. But otherwise, girl is smiling ALL THE WAY TO THE BANK! She’s telling her story that just happens to involve them.

      instead of commenting anonymously for people who don’t care, write a book OR stuff it.

      November 28, 2016 at 3:05 am

      OR write the book about the shameless men who left their wives and were paying for whatever.

  16. EE

    November 28, 2016 at 12:38 am

    We owe loyalty to our wives and mothers, the rest is on a case by case basis.

    Besides you’re overestimating female loyalty, as a brother said: “When a rich nigga want cha
    And your nigga can’t do nothing for ya………..ohh…………………………”

    Bruno, KEEP QUIET!!! You have been on this woman’s case all day, from her supposed show off using the name of God and now this. If I didn’t know any better, I would have said you take a particular interest in her. Between how do you know she makes such hash tags ‘God is good’ et al if you haven’t been trolling her social media handles or should I say ‘following’ tongue out!.
    And, I hope you also realise you came out from a ‘hoe’ ooops…..I meant hole (vagina), at least let that sink in the next term you use the derogatory word ‘hoe’ to describe a woman.
    It’s Maje NOT Majid, one would expect you should at least know who you are taking a stand for or should I say fall ….hehehe!!!
    Plus, that woman right there still stays WINNING and CASHING OUT, at least we both can tell from the pictures, she sure pulled some crowd (REAL men in attendance as well).
    Now, go sulk on that BOY!!!!

    Maje and Anita in particular.. I hope you guys don’t let this lie down. Sue the hell out of this girl. She could have written her supposed story without dragging your reputations into it.

    • Person

      November 28, 2016 at 11:44 am

      Sue for what exactly? Unless she lied. If you read the book, you’d see she has Adepetun Caxton-Martins, Segun & Agbor (ACAS- Law) on retainer. That is one of the top 5 law firms in Nigeria. You think Toke is stupid, abi? LOL

  23. Toke a slut

    Is it me or you people?

    An opportunity to see and be seen…
    For a book launch, they sure came dressed in the nines…
    And a random question which I want answered : these Lagos celebs that form bestie’s are seen all over the place together, did they know themselves before they hit the limelight or their station in their new earned life bestowed those bestie’s on them?
    What happens to their non celeb friends? ?

    • DAME

      November 28, 2016 at 12:49 pm

      One question i always asks and sadly no one seems to have the answer. Where are their old friends before they became “celebs” the friends that would tell them the real truth and not be two-faced.

    November 28, 2016 at 12:55 pm

    lolll… I can smell Maje & Anita’s comments all over this thread. The hate on here is coming from a deeper place. Maje & Anita, all I can say to you is… you publicly embarrassed this girl with the whole pregnancy saga, pls allow her turn the experience into something good abeg. No need to hate. No one here would like to experience someone else getting pregnant for our bf/hubby or someone impregnating our gf/wife. #WalksAway #GrabsPopcorn&CokeToReadRemainingComments

  30. Na Wa O!

    November 28, 2016 at 1:14 pm

    Hmmmm… Pls stop missing the point here. Toke is hurting or was hurting. To be used, made to play a second fiddle and all ain’t funny. But one thing I have learnt in life is this…to a very extent, very few things can happen to you that’s out of your control in a relationships. There are a billion and one options. Some as painful as death (not suicide), rather than sticking with nonsense. So I won’t blame her ex, I blame her.
    I have my share of pains, but when ever I am tempted to blame, I ensure I take the greater share. I must have opened the door that let him into my life or misplaced the key somehow.
    Dear haters and what-have-you, ejo stop insulting or defending. We are never presented with the complete truth in such matters. Only as much as they can spare, manipulatively. So let them kill themselves if they so wish. The best we can do is to learn from their mistakes and experiences.

    Juz can’t figure out the essence of this book. Some gave a vry silly excuse of healing and tell it all story of my life,vry lame excuses. Wonder if she had any real friends to really stop this madness! With this book she juz killed her self under the idea of cashing in on it and healing process! who is going 2 take this dickhead dummy serious if we care abt ursef inflicted stupid ass decisions u made. Iranu!
