      Obviously that because the book was not yet launched here in South Africa. As for me I’ll be there to support her and ensure to get a signed copy.

      Do you have a copy of her book?

      @wale vintage
      Don’t cook your rice in the microwave. It’s not the best option at all because the radiation causes cancer.

    • .........What Was I thinking?

      June 23, 2017 at 12:58 am

      The jealousy is so nauseating from the jobless bunch here on BN. Why has this post become a food fest all of a sudden? Wicked jealous people who have nothing but hate in their hearts. You hate Toke from now till kingdom come, the girl is soaring. I pray you all go thru what she went thru with Maje that spoilt irresponsible son of a man that could not make his father proud. Schooled abroad yet came back with nothing. Given a bank job on a platter, made nothing of it and now even fitness him no fit do. Rubbiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiish. If ya all like hate on Toke, the sky is the limit. Ya all wish she will crawl into a hole and die? You lie, all of you maggots who talked about food. Toke will keep shining. I don’t know her personally but, l will not wish a fellow woman to crawl into a hole after a traumatic experience like this girl went thru. Toke, l wish you well.

      You must be very stupid. God will punish you for doing this. How dare you draw attention from our queen and the poster girl for female empowerment?!!

    All of u who r talking about food here, you must have had a worst life experiences than Toke cos all these hate must be coming from ur own abusive life story, not possible to have so much hate for a follower woman who had courage to share her story, while u guys turn ur own into HATE. she is travelling around the world selling her story and making money (as life is about Buy and Sell, which im sure u guys work for companies that sell one product or another or u run ur own bussiness ), I give u all 36hrs for this to sink in, if it doesn’t then i strongly suggest you all make ur appointments to go and see a therapy ASAP(by the way not meant to seem as an insult) as also sane people do go see therapists.
