“If I can take the good, I can’t complain about the bad” – Toke Makinwa on People’s Reactions to Rumors about her



Media personality Toke Makinwa has responded to the backlash she has been getting in the past couple of days after a rumor surfaced about an alleged relationship with an older, wealthier man.

Toke Makinwa, who is currently in Dubai on holiday, was accused in a report from an online news site of dating the said older man in a bid to finance her expenses.

While several people have bashed Toke for the allegations, a lot of her fans have shown her immense support as well. One of her fans posted on Twitter that “Nigerians aren’t bashing rn because of the rumors, they are bashing her because she’s doing so well for herself. Pure Jealousy.”

Toke Makinwa reacted to his comment, and the rumors, by saying “If I can take the good, I can’t complain about the bad”.

Pushing the negativity aside, Toke has also revealed that she will be launching her bags officially this week. She also announced that she will be having an empowerment brunch before the end of the year.

    Pa Fadeyi’s children beg to disagree. It’s a small world and there is only so much that can be kept hidden. Anyway, it’s your life my dear.

      Pa Fadeyi’s children must be fools for attacking Toke instead of their father. If they have an issue they should talk to their daddy. Otherwise keep shut and let the two adults do as they please.

      Let’s face it. Veterans OAP, best selling authors and brand ambassadors ain’t balling like Toke so me I always knew she had mega sponsors in high places. No hardworking man ready to wife her will buy her 2 Birkins just 4 months apart. I.e Seyi kuye didn’t buy her those bags. No shocking yansh opening here jare…

    If there is no Mrs Fadeyi any where, then I don’t see the problem. To each its own
    All I want the youth to know is that, forget about the picture perfect instagram feed most of these “celebrities or internet guru’s” post. Face your front and keep working hard, if you know what goes on behind closed doors for most of these people you will fear them before the devil.
    Life is hard enough already, dont put more pressure on yourself to fit in the social media life. I agree, sometimes it is easier said than done but trust me, Do YOU and Focus on God and when it is your time to shine, you will shineeeeeee.

      November 28, 2017 at 1:25 pm

      So true. Most people are into the fast life nowadays. Social media is a killer man. Everyone’s lives look perfect on there. But in as much as we try to tell folks, ain’t nothing fulfilling about it just a temporary gratification and long-term destructive path. People don’t listen. So, let people experience it and hopefully learn from it to be a better person. Experience is the best teacher.
      If Toke got sugar daddy/ies sponsoring her hey, that’s her life.
      I know it’s crazy everywhere but Nigeria is one crazy country. What Nigerians are into to make money, live larger than life, fake it till you make it, money, wedding, and children rituals is to another level. Quite disturbing.

      Why are you wishing that there is no Mrs Fadeyi all because you want to hide Toke’s glaring hypocrisy? Of course Mrs Fadeyi is well and alive! You supporters are being taken for a ride and this should indicate to you that there is something wrong with your mentality.

      Dear 3-in-1 commenter, let me tell you what She did wrong…. Toke dating a single old man with grown kids is not wrong… What’s wrong is she misleading young girls out there…. And the Bible quotations nko? …. Preaching the gospel when she sleeps with the old man for money? I just pity the real women out there who work real hard while the likes of Toke make it seem like they’re not doing enough….

    See how BN is trying to paint a classy picture of the scenario …it is well.
    Toke, you don’t accuse others and then turn around to do the same thing to another person .
    And pls,nobody should come around to say don’t judge .
    ##behind every rumor , there’s always an element of truth ##.
    Clean up your act, so much falsehood .
    Biko..a good name is better than riches and gold jare .

    The kids apparently are standing up for their mum so there is a Mrs Fadeyi in her late 60s.
    Foolish men, a woman will struggle with a man all through the hard times, then he makes it and stands wasting money on hoes.

    • Nee

      November 29, 2017 at 12:14 pm

      If Ma Fadeyi is too old to give the man what he wants then why are the kids crying? They too should organize a young man (maybe Alex Ekubo, he’s still available) for Mama and let everybody be happy.

    Who would have thought that Toke is the container receiving fadeyi’s oro. Selling a couple of books and earning the salary of an OAP, does not equate to first class travels, Hermes bags and #50 million SUV.

    Just be an entreprenHOE and don’t be an hypocrite about it. The girl has taken over completely, that’s why baba’s kids had to voice out. Toke, ijebu babe…she has gone home for baba. Note that the kids are not asking their dad not to transact business with any runs girl, but when you start seeing signs that your father is signing off assets he built all his life, then, the next thing to do is to attack someone that feeds on public attention, publicly.

    Trust she would find a way to kill the story in some couple of days.

    Don’t lecture people about morality and put up the “Jesus optics” if you made your fortune from pleasuring a man’s loins. Do your runs covertly. An average person knows that Toke ain’t affording the luxuries on selling a few books and making an OAP salary. If she could defend her source of money, the holy Toke would have come out gun blazing. To you blaming the kids and saying the man is widowed, when your 80 year old father is funding issa a baby girl life, while selling off his assets, then let’s know what you will do.

    November 28, 2017 at 1:38 pm

    Please have you people killed Mama? Of course she is around and well. Who are these people saying Pa Fadeyi is single? Haba!! I personally don’t believe the children released this information because they are a private family. Toke and her friends are the ones rubishing their name.

      So now you want to dictate what people are permitted to see as trials? You don’t get to decide, missy. You people should get off your high horses and face your lives. And the conspiracy theorist saying Toke and her friends released the story. Thinking is free, you know. Is it possible that no one released it but the bloggers cooked it up as you just did?

Like a commenter said up there, my fellow young women stop all the “Goals”, “Yass Mami” “I want to be like you” rubbish on social media posts. You don’t know the behind the scenes. We’re only seeing the glossy edits. Forget all the bible quotes. Face your front. Face your God. Write your own story.

The hypocrisy about ‘God’, hardwork, hustle is what is very terrible. She should just stop with the hypocrisy and own her trade.

    Toke’s life na soap opera. But why are people shocked she has a sugar daddy. Whether he’s married or not, that’s what these older men spend their retirement money on young babes. A lot of Lagos, Abuja girls are run girlz, they sell their pum pum for designer bags and shoes.
    I’m not saying there are not legit successful women but the way naija is set up and the greed in naija people, their success get k leg.

    It makes me laugh when wretched women on their 9-to-5 jobs actually believe that their lifestyle is a benchmark by which every woman is guaged. These women will never spend a penny of their hard earned money on “frivolities” and expect their partners to cough up dough for bags, watches etc

    Sorry to disappoint you but there are actually women who LOVE to spend their money on THEMSELVES. Women, who think nothing of dropping $12,000 on a bag and cannot wait until next month when they can make enough to buy themselves the next treat. They do not count whether it is one or “four months” apart. (By the way, Tokes has had Hermes bags long before her divorce).

    Not every material girl is wealthy; they begin to acquire a taste for better things even at school and usually will spend an entire month’s salary or one term’s allowance on just one item that pleases them.

    Haters, improve your life and leave Toke to hers.

See how dumb that sounds? I get what you’re trying to say. Not all women have to wait on men to buy them stuff, of course. But your example was stupid and even with 10 of Tokes paychecks she can’t afford the life she’s living. Face it Toke is sadly not one of those ones. She is a bonafide runs girl

    Toke has very very deep set insecurities she has a very desperate need to be seen and validated by ppl who don’t even know her personally. Issaa baby girl this and that. Is this what nija does to people? Maje Ayida truly try dodged a bullet. All this is just too much. If she actually enjoys negative attention then she’s a sadomasochist. It isn’t normal no matter how you slice and dice it.

    She claims xtianity and claims she is also very vain. These are two oxymoronic ideas. Wherever happened to humility and subtlety?

    I hope this is not true. I see Toke as a a hard working young girl who has done quite well for herself. I once sat next to her on a flight to London mid last year, I tell you, there was a bit of a buzz around her than other passengers on VS 652 before takeoff. Yes, she flew business class and there was something off about her skin. People, stay off skincare with harmful chemicals.

    December 1, 2017 at 2:05 am

    Since you all know what she has in her pocket, please tell us how much she got for her Coroc endorsement. Not everyone is suffering in Nigeria.
