    Surprised she hasn’t taken any photos with Bonang.

      She needs to stop hyping that bonang. Bonang doesn’t talk about her.. Whenever people tweet at both of them.. bonang doesn’t respond.. Even look at the fuss toke was making about bonangs birthday.. Babe didn’t even acknowledge… toke shld stop acting like a beg friend.. This is the same type forced relationship she was pulling with maje.. Abeg.. She needs to know Tht she is better than this… And that bonang was even close to where toke has reached in her first few years in the industry..

      They are nothing but pathetic, envious, pretentious hypocrites who can’t stand the sight of any strong, beautiful, independent woman because their minds have been policed by the Patriarchy.
      This is a wonderful woman who is an icon and a role model for young women today. She overcame a cheating spouse, a broken marriage and found her way to the top of the mountain. But what does she get? Tons of people hating on her and spiting in her face for being happy and doing what she can to escape her troubled past. The saddest thing is that most of the people doing this to her are women. Nigerian women have a long way to go. The hunger to bring down their own kind is truly tragic.
      Let them continue with their stupidity. Toke is doing well, that is all that matters. At the end of the day, their foolishness and pettiness will NEVER take away their own deep-seated issues and it will NEVER take away Toke’s happiness.

    • Bad

      June 23, 2017 at 5:44 pm

      There is nothing to be envious about this pathetic pretentious fake-ass low self-esteem bleached woman who fanned the flame of patriarchy by remaining with a cheating partner for 12 years, stood her up at her wedding more than once and was only ‘bold’ enough to call things quit when knowledge about his babymama was scandalously made public… then she expects us to promote that condescending and weak-spirited behaviour? We are not all opportunistic social climbers, some of us know we deserve better from day one….so take your toke-kissing ass and gtfoh

      Okay, but what did yall have as celebratory lunch though??

    • A Real Nigerian

      June 23, 2017 at 6:25 pm

      This is so bad.

      The simple question of “what did Toke do?” always receives illogical, hateful responses like these. She is weak-willed? She is fake? She bleaches? Are these even normal reasons to strongly hate someone?
      If you ask the fools like you in this thread why they ALWAYS pick on Toke, they have nothing real to say. Can’t you all see that you are being overwhelmed by hatred?

      So your main problem with her is that she was weak and remained in a bad marriage? But now that she has found the strength escaped, why do you still hate her?
      Please what did Toke do to you? How has she harmed anybody in her pursuit of happiness?

      And so what if she remained in the marriage? Remaining in a bad marriage ≠  fanning the flames of the patriarchy. That is completely wrong. By your flawed logic, are rape victims also fanning the flames of the patriarchy when they don’t report the rapists?

      And why are you shaming her for having a low self esteem and being weak-willed?
      Are we all born confident and with big egos? Especially in Nigeria? Not like she pulled anyone down with her. So please, what is your problem?
      Do you think everyone has the courage to leave a failed marriage? How many women are in broken marriages today but can’t leave for one reason or another? Do you go about shaming them for having low esteems? Do you go about talking down on them over and over again like you are doing here? How does that help the person in question? And why is Toke’s case special on this website?
      Instead of you to encourage and motivate women like her, you shame her and put her down for being “weak”. This is the same tactic men have used on women for centuries and here you are doing the same thing. Yet you have the guts to say Toke is fanning the flames of patriarchy when you are doing worse by adding fuel to it?

      Keep on hating on someone that did absolutely nothing to you or anyone else. Like I earlier said, it won’t affect her in any way. Call her weak, call her opportunistic, call her bleacher. The fact remains that she escaped a failed marriage, she found her feet, she LEGITIMATELY groomed success for herself using her past issues as fuel and here she is, happy again and winning at life. Your senseless hatred and hypocrisy won’t change all that.
      Shame on you.

    • Bad

      June 23, 2017 at 7:29 pm

      ‘She found the strength to escape’ that is the stupid delusion that irritates the crap outta me…babe only pulled all these book and ‘boss’ attitude because her cheating husband became public knowledge…she didn’t find shit
      Rape and cheating are two very different things, don’t try to bring any silly sentiments into this; was she forced to stay in the marriage?! How dare you rate the level of trauma of a victim of rape to the extreme stupidity of toke? Take your time o! I don’t hate toke, the message I have for her is ‘you are not a victim’ and yes tolerating a cheating degenerate husband is = supporting patriarchy especially when you could have left with nothing to lose… rubbish!!!

      Back in the day when Germany was divided, a huge wall separated East and West Berlin.

      One day, some people in East Berlin took a truck load of garbage and dumped it on the West Berlin side.
      The people of West Berlin could have done the same thing, but they didn’t. Instead they took a truck load of canned goods, bread, milk and other provisions, and neatly stacked it on the East Berlin side.

      On top of this stack they placed the sign:


      How very true! You can only give what you have.
      What do you have inside of you? Is it hate or love? Violence or peace? Death or life? Capacity to build or capacity to destroy?

      What have you acquired over the years?


      Think about it! Please give out the good in you.

      They think that the superficial, temporary thrill they get from doing this nonsense will soothe their pains or make them feel better about themselves. They know deep down that it doesn’t work and that they are just deceiving themselves, but their wickedness will not let them depart from their evil ways.

    I think it is just wrong to try and undermine this woman’s achievements. It might not mean much to us as people, but every step she takes means a lot to her. If we cannot appreciate that, then the best thing will be to avoid posts that concern her. Trying to divert the attention from ‘her’ post is mean spirited and quite frankly, childish, in my opinion.

      Is it by force? My own issue with Toke is that she is too calculating and desperate social climber. She forced herself on mAje from Jump and when ish blew up, she turned around to paint him a monster. Had Anita not kept that baby or had the baby quietly without the news breaking, Toke will still be forming Mrs Ayida on social media. She is not a genuinely sincere persons and lacks the authenticity that deserves my regards for anything she is affiliated with. I also know deep down she is a very miserable and lonely heart.

    • Kkay

      June 24, 2017 at 12:33 pm

      @Weather , so true! Those that troll Toke are as evil as Evans the kidnapper _ without the $$ ransom! Their hearts are DESPERATELY WICKED and DECEITFUL (because they do worse things). Out of the heart proceed evil thoughts (envy, hatred, greed) that lead to murder…and kidnapping.
      I don’t know Toke but I ‘know’ the people that posted nasty comments (and those that liked them). Your words reveal who you really are deep down!

    • A Real Nigerian

      June 23, 2017 at 8:41 pm

      Na wa o. Why are you dumb like this? You want to derail the argument and make it seem like I am talking down on rape victims so you can take the moral high ground? The same way you feel s%&#ting on Toke will make you feel better about yourself?
      Who is comparing trauma rates here? When it comes to different people and their experiences, trauma is trauma or are you one of those idiots who love to say “other people have it worse”?

      And who said rape is patriarchal? Or did I ever say infidelity was exclusively patriarchal? Don’t women cheat? I was using your idiotic example against you. “By your logic”, can’t you f*%#king read? Or has your hate for Toke taken over you?

      “Tell your lady to stop playing victim”???
      What? How is she playing “victim”? You’ve just been making unfounded, idiotic statements in this thread. First, she is opportunistic, now she is playing victim. Please, explain how Toke is “playing victim”.
      In your previous comment, you talked about how Toke was going through a whole lot of issues in her marriage, so now, how is she magically playing vicitim?


      “remaining with a cheating partner for 12 years, stood her up at her wedding more than once and was only ‘bold’ enough to call things quit when knowledge about his babymama was scandalously made public… ”


      Nobody hates her? Yet a plethora of idiots like yourself gather here to ruin her parade and pick on her? You don’t hate her yet your tone in this argument is one of deep-rooted hate?
      Your hypocrisy is mindblowing and your failed attempt to bring down an innocent woman is utterly laughable.

      Keep on going. The way hypocrites and superficial, pretentious ariheads like you disgrace yourselves just because you want to bring down a honest, hardworking woman putting her life together is truly entertaining.

I hope you are not one of those silly idiots who gets slapped and literarily turns the other cheek then starts to scream victim?

      Funniest bit about Toke is you can tell she is not a happy person deep down. She is very happy; She probably cries herself to sleep most nights. Behind all that make up and designer outfits, lies a broken and sad heart. People who seek attention and always want to show off usually do these to mask their unhappiness and insecurity. I just hope she gets help fast! This is how depression begins!

      “Read your idiotic comment and see were you compared a person who was traumatised by forceful sexual intercourse to a stupid woman who WILLINGLY remained with an adulterous husband out of thirst for attaining social status…”
      Did you miss the part where I said trauma is still trauma regardless of the source? Because people are raped means those in failed marriages should not feel bad?
      All I said was failing to report rape and failing to escape a bad marriage are both similar because they both do no equate to fanning the flames of the patriarchy like you stupidly assumed for the latter.
      Why are you trying to twist the narrative that I am some evil person watering down the trauma of rape victims? What kind of foolishness is that? You should be ashamed of yourself for trying to hide behind that comment because you have nothing meaningful to say.

      “is that even traumatic? I hope you are not one of those silly idiots who gets slapped and literarily turns the other cheek then starts to scream victim? There is nothing traumatic about what toke went through… so take a chill pill and shut the f#@k up…”

      So women who can’t leave troubled marriages and give in to years of torture from their husbands do not deserve to call themselves victims? What kind of wicked, heartless, dumb%#£k are you? Do you think saying this will make you look tough? Or do you think this is how to empower women?
      And there is nothing traumatic about what Toke went through? Of course that is easy for you to say. Sit on your moral high horse and say stupid s%&t. Keep on repeating it to yourself until you feel like a good person.

      I’m taking it that you either have a personal beef with Toke or she reminds of what you can never be because you cannot swallow the hatred and move on.
      Again, I ask you what did Toke do??
      Why do you hate her?
      Why are you so passionate about sh%&ing on her success?
      Please give me a valid reason apart from “she bleaches”, “she is a social climber” and “she is opportunistic”.
      If you can hate someone this much just because they are bleachers and social climbers then wow, you must have a very tragic life.
      Keep on with the baseless hate for Toke you hear? Maybe if you senselessly keep on hating till your veins pop, it will validate your strong feelings for her and she will fail.
      Shey that is what you want? You want her to remain in misery and fail so that you can laugh and be happy abi? Keep on waiting for her failure you hateful, shallow, two-faced cüñt.

      “Instead of you to encourage women to take the bull by the horn and not wait for public gossip to leave toxic marriages, you are here fooiling yourself with redundant vocabulary forming one rubbish behavioural analyst….beesh swerve”

      Abeg what is this?
      So because we want women to take the bull by the horns means that we will insult and shame any woman who can’t? What kind of absurd, retrogressive logic is that?
      And if public gossip is what it took, how is that even a bad thing? What matters is that she left. Period. Stop trying to validate your hatred by saying things that absolutely make no sense.

      How do you feel bad in a marriage/relationship you let yourself be treated like dirt for 12 years and you expect the public to sympathise with you? Where is the positive logic in that? Nobody should say any she had no strength nonsense pls… a man stood you up multiple times at the altar, had a retinue of babymamas in between, had numerous side chicks and you are writing a book defending yourself. .. what should we tell you? sorry? When should stupidity be separated from sentiments? Women who are stupidly timid and weak towards men should be toughened up by bitter truths not this feeble consolation from you…

      “How can constructive criticism be called shaming?!”

      Looooool! Constructive criticism is calling someone a bleacher? Calling her weak-willed? Saying that she is faking being a victm? Calling her names? This is what you call constructive criticism? Look how your hypocrisy is coming back to hit you.

      We ignored her? Who is we? Her book sold many copies. She has over 1 million followers (read fans) so who is this “we” you speak of? Where are the people ignoring her! What an idiot you are.

      I can see that you are beginning to lose yourself and your head. This is what baseless hate does to you. You start to ramble and you start to contradict yourself and you start to make up delusional crap.

      Your gradual decline from hateful but coherent, to a confused, babbling lunatic is highly entertaining. Keep it comin. You are making my night!!

    Well done Toke. Keep shining. You are look really good on the pictures.

      My problem is not that they hate Toke, I mean you can hate someone, that is normal. But at least have a valid reason for the hate, especially this magnitude of hate

      Out of all the people here, no SINGLE one has given a legitimate reason on their hate for Toke. Go and look at all of BN’s features on Toke, the comments section is always flooded with confused people joining the bandwagon and spitting venom at her for things like
      “she wrote a book to make money*
      “she is playing victim”
      “she is always in the spotlight”
      “she is making too much noise”
      “She knew her husband was bad”
      “she stayed in a bad marriage that means she is weak”
      “She is a social climber”
      “She is an attention seeker”
      Haaa! So bcause of trivial things like these, you will now devote all your time and energy to gang up and hate on an innocent person? I don’t just get it.

      Real nigerian is very close to toke and knows a lot about toke
      real nigerian probably goes to lunch and dinner and always on her snapchat
      real nigerian knows toke like no other person

May you grow from strength to strength. Some of these idiots have imbeciles and STD infected maggots as husband. So my dear live your life and be free! I look forward to your next success. Cheers.

    well you hate her to the extent she is shining
    you are bitter because she does not belong to the cool kids club but she is shining
    you hate her cause shes not from a wealthy home or married into one but she is shining
    you hate her cause you wanted to see her destruction after a failed marriage you wanted her to be laughecd at ridiculed at but she is shining

    today she has made money and is taking advantage of the spotlight but your not instead your typing negative comment
    today she is in south africa promoting her books but your not your hating

    your are all bunch of entitled loosers who all wish you can turn around situation like she did
    you feel i am from a rich family am a cool kid i should be entitled to this not Toke.

      Linda ikeji has more haters. I hate Linda like -. I wear the crown.

      Toke rules Lagos social circles. Linda craves and begs for attention there. Nobody is proud to be associated publicly with linda.

      Toke does not need to flaunt her wealth. Money is written all over her!
      Linda claims to be a billionaire but still looks as cheap and tacky as they come.
      Toke is eloquent. Linda manages to string a sentence together with her shitty mushin accent.

    This is for you ” A real Nigerian” and Toke if you are reading. You are missing the point in this saga. First of all, are there people who hate and envy Toke for no reason. Definitely. But I take offence to your assumption that because some of us don’t want to discuss her, then we must be jealous. In order to be jealous of a person, you must first believe they are better than you and feel threatened by them. Do you realize the caliber of women who visit this blog? I am talking professional women making six figures. And made from sheer hard work. So No, we are not threatened. My grouse with Toke is her obsession with money, labels, fame and men. I get that she has been through a lot and was smart enough to cash in on it. But take one look at her instagram and it’s obvious that the Lagos life has completely overtaken her mind and probably was the genesis of her marital problems. Every “it bag” or designer item must be purchased immediately and flaunted. To what purpose. These things do not define a person and if you are enlightened and have lived overseas for a long time, your value system will change to the point where you find it irritating. She conducts herself like a shallow video vixen or cheap reality TV show star and I don’t think she realizes it. Her fellow women are neurosurgeons, attorneys, business executives, entertainers with real talent etc and are making meaningful contributions to society while balling in all regards i.e homes, investments and not just a closet full of designer items that will be useless a few years from now. When she begins to show off her charities and real accomplishments that add value to society, I will be the first to cheer her on. And No, that book does not count. Nor designer apparel that anyone that sets their mind to it can have.

      Well said Frenchie. Its wrong to conclude everyone hates her or is jealous of her simply because they refuse to focus on her.

      Initially I wasn’t sure what was going on with the food talk on the first post, but I get it now. People would rather talk about food than her, and they’ve got a right to do so. I’m indifferent to Toke to be honest, I mostly just observe comments on her posts.

      @ Frenchie, points noted. However, you could have chosen not to open any link about Toke. Why go to her Instagram page? That’s OBSESSION or IG STALKING!
      You have that much time? Follow those neurosurgeons and talented achievers. Toke has chosen her path. SIMPLY IGNORE.

      Why are you following her Instagram then. The only way you will know she posts materialistic stuff is if you checking out her page. Why aren’t you following the other hardworking professional women making six figures. It actually says a lot about you. You guys do care because you took the time to not only click on the link but commented. A posts about her usually garners the most comments. Indirectly or directly you do give a shit to have taken your precious time to click and comment on this posts. If you truly don’t give a shit you will go to the other educated posts that BN but you wouldn’t. Those posts usually have like only 1 comment. We don’t see you professional lots there.

      What is there to be jealouse of?That she foolishly wasted the best time of her life voluntarily as a slave? If anything, we feel sorry for her. Not everybody is so materialist to envy designer bags and shoes though most of us can afford them. Like somebody else said earlier, you don’t know the caliber of women that visit this blog. Some of us earn millions from running empires but get more joy and fulfilment from anonymously helping the less privilege than acquiring and flaunting material things. If any sister or daughter of mine stupidly volunteer to be treated like thrash by a man for that long, I will put her over my knees and give her the beating of her life but I can confidendly say no body with a single drop of my blood would be that stupid.

The retards can’t discipline themselves enough to stay away from a topic that doesn’t interest them; they have to exhibit the emptiness in their lives by bullying someone the claim not to care about. I wonder why BellaNaija is leaving its platform open for these miserable bullies to go loose. Rather than focus on their own lives or, if indeed they care, offer constructive criticism, they are acting like 2 year olds. The buffoonery is on another level.
