Aww… Here’s Why Toolz announced her Pregnancy on Banky W & Adesua’s Intro Day



Saturday was a day of double celebrations for BFFs Banky W and Tunde Demuren for two exciting reasons – Banky was having his introduction ceremony to actress Adesua Etomi while Tunde and wifey Toolz announced their pregnancy.

It was a great day!

Speaking on why she and Tunde chose that special moment to share their big news, Toolz reveals that she was hesitant at first but was encouraged by Banky W to do it on the same day. She explains that she had tried unsuccessfully to hide her baby bump for the event, so she and Tunde decided that the best thing to do would be to control the narrative by sharing the picture announcing the pregnancy first!

Aww... Here's Why Toolz announced her Pregnancy on Banky W & Adesua's Intro Day

See what she wrote below.

So on Saturday morning, I was trying to figure out how to hide my bump with L’osban when @bankywellington says ‘Why not just announce it today?…you can just post a pic of both of you saying #TreeADem. I’m like during your intro, won’t that be much?
Anyhow much later I walk into the venue and 2 people looked me up and down and said congratulations – operation hide-the-bump failed.??
So long story short, we quickly decided to take a pic and announce things our way.

      She could have had a cape over it, anything over the bump. but y’all can’t seem to look past your need to find loopholes. she has announced it, go call police!

      its really a shame that most people cant comprehend well…..she said she was thinking of how to conceal it in the morning “before the intro”….meaning she hadnt even chosen her desired dress that moment,till banky was like just show it……she had been putting on flared dresses before saturday

    • Idomagirl

      She clearly was planning on wearing an outfit that would cover the bump but she changed her mind.
      She didn’t say she wanted THIS dress to cover her bump.

    I hear you “life of a Nigerian OAP” like you actually owe the world that explanation….. Just continue with this tempo OK because I would like to know exactly your conception and delivery date too. What a life….na you go tire eventually. If only they will hear, see and learn!!!

      Abi oooo…I don’t understand why she feels the need to explain. You are pregnant and showed up to a friends wedding..Kini big deal? Get over yourself Tools, Cos we don’t care..sheesh

    Did you honestly think you could hide your bump in that dress???? There’s nothing somebody will not see. Unless you changed your attire and I completely missed it. In that case, my bad.

    May 8, 2017 at 4:30 pm

    Now, all those ITK people saying she stole the shine from the couple can face their lives. Nigerians and overdo. Mtcheew. Congrats again, Toolz.

  6. Hey

    May 8, 2017 at 4:33 pm

    ‘won’t it be too much ‘ you all sure enjoy the noise everywhere n hate to get feedback … Congratulations though at least the womb watchers can relax till next …

    Dear People,
    When you lie, at least make it have a semblance the truth! You went to a tailor/ seamstress/ fashion designer and got measured; showed him/ her the style you wanted, including adding some fringing…yet you claim you were trying to hide the bump?! In this style?!

  8. Boity

    May 8, 2017 at 4:49 pm

    Toolz please learn to Ignore all these mofos.
    You did not even have to explain anything to anyone. Let them think whatever the fk they wanna think . Because you are pregnant you should not go out again ???? The gift of the womb God has blessed you with is way more important that what any of this bitches think. Learn not to bother with what people say and think you have to give them explanation. All those people who were talking shit on your IG page, there is something called the BLOCK/SPAM button. Delete their comments and erase all of em. Utilize it often.

    Wowzers! Hahaha Tolu you are a big chic and if you were trying to hide that bump, you know what to wear jare. Make we hear word! Not saying you should hide it, but stop pretending you couldn’t hide it. Also the announce it debate you had with Banky goes to prove everyone’s point about most of una loving social media attention die. You didn’t have to announce mehn! We could have seen your figure hugging dress and gotten the memo

    Toolz did you have to go? It was just intro…. when I was preggers, I knew a lot of people were anticipating and watching, so I stopped going everywhere except work and church. Even church I would slip in and out. No family function, no parties, in short my evasion was epic. I knew there would still be time for all that. U won’t believe I heard people ask those who saw me if I was pregnant yet. Anyways, I’m glad I did. I know what I went through to get there. Discretion is key. It has limitless value

      Nwanne m, that is too much work o! Sneaking upandan when ayam not a thief. Anyway, I guess you did what pleased you. I am an advocate for people doing what they want to do not what people think they should do. So if she wanted to attend the event with bump on display with a crown on it, it is entirely her business. Truth is, the buzz goes on for about a day and that’s it! You give birth, more buzz for about a day and everyone moves on.

      She should be Hiding for who and what exactly.
      Women have been getting pregnant since prehistoric time. Wonder what the fuss is about.
      I definitely didn’t anounce my pregnancy………. only told family and my best friend after the 1st scan. The rest knew when they just saw me out and about.
      I wonder why she’s explaining herself sef.

    • Fola

      May 8, 2017 at 11:12 pm

      My point exactly… Can u truly hide it…I don’t understand all dis celebrity sef

      May 9, 2017 at 12:14 pm

      Not everyone will be like you Sue, each to his own biko. Live and let live. So now Toolz should be like you and not go anywhere, na wa for people sha.

    • Idomagirl

      May 13, 2017 at 9:02 pm

      See how you let fear & paranoia imprison you.
      So Toolz should be sneaking around like a thief because you did.

    Jeeeeez, y’all Nigerians can drive one into depression.
    She announce…wahala
    She no announce… wahala
    She try to explain… whahala
    She never carry belle, wahala. Now she haff carry, wahala.
    Someone said she would have stayed home
    Ask noble Igwe who stayed home the backlash he received…
    There is really no satisfying you guys
    Y’all are too thirsty. On top someone’s life?
    You cant live another’s life for them, you know right?

    • My dear me sef, I tire

      May 8, 2017 at 7:02 pm

      My sister, e ji kwa m’ogwu o! If she gives birth now and refuses to post the baby’s picture, another wahala. “What is she feeling like? Is her baby special?”. Somebody cannot drink water and keep cup with Nigerians. Tufia!

  14. LOL..Nigerians

    May 8, 2017 at 6:07 pm

    You can never win with Nigerians. Whether she announced it that day or any other day, you people would still wag your tongues. Congrats Toolz! Wishing you a safe pregnancy and delivery. P.S Don’t feel the need to explain anything to online nitwits. They will believe what they want anyway. Controlling narratives applies to reasonable people. Nigerians aren’t part of that demographic. So do your own and leave these frustrated people to whatever is disturbing them

  15. Wow

    May 8, 2017 at 6:53 pm

    In nija 3 months after wedding, the pressure is on from every angle, its unbelievable and unavoidable, so IF she was TTC all along i can totally understand how much she longed for this to come. I would have preferred she announced after giving birth and left us to speculate if she is pregnant, a lot of us could have seen the picture and not realised she was pregnant, some of us no de watch womb and can barely detect when someone is pregnant, anyway, its thier choice and i dont understand the explanation, no need my dear!. Congratulations and God bless.

    God pick my call too ??

    Congratz toolz…however I feel the explanation doesn’t make sense and is some sort of damage control for the backlash. But who cares? Everyone’s happy, Adesua ain’t complaining. Marriage on d way, baby on d way…. Yippie

    Tools your dress provided an environment which one cannot be oblivious of.the debate with Mr Wellington was not necessary.
    Congratulations.U should hv kept ur pregnancy under wraps till after delivery.
    That would given us an omg??!!!factor.

    Happy family life.U will surely make a good mother.

    Y’all pls leave my Toolz alone…she’s been one of my fave personalities for so many years. I hate that she felt the need to respond to you online agberos, but it’s done. If Banky suggested it, then she wasn’t there to steal anyone’s shine. She doesn’t seem like that sha – unlike some of your favourite personalities that would have done photoshoot on the moon by now. *Cough..cough*
    Anyways, whatever issues you have with her, pls chill…she’s gonna have a baby…it’s a happy time. Drop your meaness and celebrate this God given gift. 🙂

    Mama Toolz! I’m so happy for her…see God! The womb watchers were on her case…little did they know God had already done it…..Amazing God.
    Some of our women sha….na wa o. Would it kill you to celebrate and be happy for another? As Miss Lauryn Hill said before her craze ‘How you gonna win when you ain’t right within?’
    Be happy, celebrate other women and watch your blessings come.
    PS Toolz if you read this Tobi is a nice unisex name…hint hint

    All of you complaining about her dress,are you criticizing just for the sake of it or you struggle with comprehension—”So on Saturday morning, I was trying to figure out how to hide my bump with L’osban when @bankywellington says ‘Why not just announce it today?— meaning she was thinking of hiding it but Banky didn’t have a problem with them announcing on his intro day so she decided not to hide and announce it there.

    You all should slow down on that bitter pill you taking!! Life isn’t that hard jare!

    You don’t owe us an explanation for your actions but since you feel that you do don’t be offended when we ask for more, the public can never be satiated.
