    LOL Toke!!!!!!!!! Guest Lecture to a very empty class of seven people??? babe needs to calm down a bit. Dear BN please stop helping this babe fuel her vanity and superficiality,( she needs to develop develop substance) and i hope this path doesn’t become counter productive in the end. . Life is not all about image, it’s ok to fake it till you make it but remember that atimes if you project an over bloated image of your self, Life will shrink you back to your size at some point.
    All the best!

      Madam developer, what have you developed in your life that has given you the opportunity of people to even want to hear you speak? Except the rubbish you come and type here randomly? You better find how to upgrade yourself and stop hating. Pathetic nuisance

      She lectured a media class. You think NYU is like your Jakonde university with 1000 students and some cows and goats in a 3x4m class room?
      No matter how you fart on or twist and turn the story it is an achievement for her period!

      Jealousy ta na na na na, Jealousy ta na na na na, JEALOUSY is the root of hatred!

      How many students do you think make up a grad class? For Petesake, why are y’all so bitter? Celebrate her achievements, so people can celebrate yours too.

      Lovery me some Toke!
      People who make lemonade out of lemons, life threw at them! !

      One life my dear. Enjoy it. No matter what and how. No room for depression.

      No need to hate, at least have some common sense if you choose to do it. If you lecture, make a positive impact to just one person, that’s something. You start from somewhere, that’s the beauty of success. Congrats Toke, keep soaring.

      Too much.
      Yes, we all know the demerits of overexposure, but the way you finished your comment really does reek of jealousy. Why on earth will you wish that life cuts someone down? Regardless of who she is,or parades herself to be, or whether you think she deserves it or not, she sure as hell has been through enough.

    all the best Toke,

    Whenever someone who doesn’t come from a privileged background or cool kids background shatters boundaries.

    People always hate on them or angry at how they did
    the people on top will ponder how they made it
    the people below them will be envious they left their cycle

    take a look at linda ikeji she is hated upon, not like im comparing her to Toke but both parties came from ordinary backgrounds and have done well for themselves

    same thing with Stephanie the presenter who got married into a wealthy family and all hell was broke loose

    pls celebrate others not hate on them

      Very poor examples. Both Linda and Toke were not liked before they became famous or rich.

    BellaNaija, please what is Toke Makinwa’s share percentage on you guys blog. The way you guys sleep and wake up on her matter like your staff members are heavily obsessed about her. I can’t telling the difference between following Toke on I. G and Snap chat and following you guys on this blog – it seems one is a zonal branch of another.
    I just tire for una !!

      Her stories always get reactions and interactions from blog visitors and BN needs those numbers

    This hate on Toke has got to stop. Even if she lectured 1 person under this NYU platform- ITS A STARTING POINT. Toke did not grow up with a silver spoon in her mouth . She has worked to be where she is now- people have to respect that . The Toke we see now is not the same person we saw when she was starting out- and guess what – SHE IS STILL EVOLVING! Let’s be supportive of our own. Happy Sunday !

    The person that made mention of Stephanie Coker is a joker. I don’t think she is from an ordinary background, I think she is from a wealthy home too.

      She’s not from a wealthy home oh.

    Don’t waste your energy hating whilst others shine – Celebrate them. Toke is rising.

    It’s really amazing to have friends who genuinely love and support you. I hope I get to do this for a true friend someday
