“I didn’t kick anyone out of a bar” – John Boyega on alleged incident between a Bodyguard & Toke Makinwa | Watch



Early this year media personality and author Toke Makinwa shared how she had an unpleasant encounter with the chaperone of movie star John Boyega at a restaurant in Lagos and at the Wizkid concert which took place in December 2017.

John Boyega, who is currently in Lagos, in an interview with Cool FM stated that he wasn’t aware that the incident happened as he doesn’t know who Toke Makinwa is.

He further explained that he didn’t have any bodyguard in Lagos as he was on vacation and definitely didn’t kick anyone out of a bar or restaurant.

      He’s so foolish for that …so since the thing happened, he hasn’t figured out who she is. Ordinary Google search would tell him. So maybe they were not bodyguards. Maybe tough looking friends of yours cause I’m sure he didn’t walk around lagis by himself. That’s how people get sued by accusers. You piss her off and she’ll have to sue to clear her name then you can tell the court no one followed you around lagos

      He’s not foolish and not everything is shade. Not everyone is acquainted with media personalities or so-called celebrities. Even some people who live in Nigeria don’t know these people, not to talk about people who don’t live in Nigeria. It was when I visited Nigeria that I realized OAP personalities are celebrities in Nigeria ? They’re so many “well-known” people that I don’t know and I’m not acquainted with.

      That’s to tell you he wasn’t looking at anybody’s face when he came for holiday. Toke only stalked him to flaunt herself. Dude came to chill and have fun! He cared less…

    It is possible that he doesn’t know who she is. After all, she is just famous on Nigeria’s internet circle. Moreover, he is British and could have a different kind of content that he likes to watch on the internet and not the “hypocritical advice” videos that Toke often dishes out.

      Some Nigerians and their inferiority complex! They will ridicule theirs but hero worship anyone from “the abroad.” So what if he doesn’t know her? The story linked to here doesn’t say she alleged a personal encounter with him, does it?

      How does his comment negate what she said, because we can assume he had some goons, like those sucking up to him here, he rolled with in Lagos? And like the Internet warriors here, read bullies, the goons could have been overzealous and over idolized, So why is this statement from him now an evidence of deception, not like I am saying there couldn’t have been any, in the allegation?

      This Toke girl must be really blessed to have a whole army of online warriors engaging her shortcomings and trivialities for her while she is free to focus on moving forward and giving you all more things to get your knickers in a twist over.

      Those whom the gods want to kill, they first make mad; some have lost their sanity over this girl. Why? Una go dye okay, but make e no too tey.

      You just typed total gibberish; I didn’t bother finishing it. So John Boyega is the “abroad”? He’s just as Nigerian as Toke; British citizen or not. I wonder how people calling Toke out on her lies, or John Boyega saying he doesn’t know her and hope she’s alright after the alleged incident has to do with Nigerians abusing their own. Save your useless epistle for when you enrol in grad school or something.

    @slice. Get real. John Boyega has been in movies with Harrison Ford, Thandie Newton and Andy Serkis. He lives abroad, did not grow up here, and is known by tens of millions world over. He does not read Bella Naija and he does not read Linda Ikeji. You think the guy has time to be investigating someone who isn’t even an international celebrity. How can Toke sue him for something he wasn’t even there to involve in. The minute she filed that claim she will get one cease and desist and countersuit from some tony London firm. If you were an upcoming tech mogul in Lagos and you heard that one Sade Coker who is a cake baker in Ondo State said that your driver pushed her, will you investigate? You wouldn’t give a flip.

    But you want John Boyega to be obstructing his destiny by getting into squabbles with someone that is not even a Nigerian A-lister, much less Hollywood d-list.

      “If you were an upcoming tech mogul in Lagos and you heard that one Sade Coker who is a cake baker in Ondo State said that your driver pushed her, will you investigate? You wouldn’t give a flip.” This had me in stitches! ?? Well said, Weezy.

      @Weezy, what bile inducing rant. Take it or leave it Toke is an “A” lister here. Whatever that means. Why the hate for this girl? I for one do not know this Boyega person. He is not A list anywhere either. He does not know Toke simple. Everybody can not know everybody. But, I think John is a liar. His cousins, friends etc must have drawn his attention to what Toke said when the incident happened. “I did not instruct anyone to do xyz…” would have been enough. Nigerians, so becos he lives abroad, he is up there? I beg make I hear word.

    • Quisse

      April 5, 2018 at 10:00 am

      He’s not a liar you’re just unreasonable. John Boyega isn’t an A lister everywhere but Toke is? ??? How on earth would his cousins or siblings have drawn his attention to it?! Can you not read?! Most of his extended family live in the U.K., he was raised in the U.K. with his siblings and his Parents live in the U.K.. Not everyone is Nigeria knows Toke, even as famous as you think she is; not to talk about the U.K. and other countries. Not everything is hard or bitterness; please look for other words in your vocabulary or sit down. If you’re going to call anyone a liar; it’s Toke.

    April 4, 2018 at 2:58 pm

    @Slice. John said he doesn’t know her does not mean after he read about it on the internet he was not aware of it and chooses to ignore it until they brought it up in an interview. And Trump had direct dealing with Stormy and bribed her at a point to cover up. John doesnt know Toke Makinde and not even aware something happened , how can Toke sue him. Do you want him to lie on himself that he knows Toke nii. Who is Toke sef!

    April 4, 2018 at 3:01 pm

    @slice/ abi Toke:
    thats harsh, he IS NOT foolish just because he has better things to worry about? na Toke? Things like how much his public misyarn to a hardworking, constantly in demand, A lister, Hollywood legend like Samuel Jackson may impact his fledging career in Yankee.

    I mean I luv Toke’s drive but to be sincere A LOT of people in Nigeria, outside most of social media circuit do not know her. And I am referring to very hardworking people that go offshore etc. They just do not have that time or need to know..

    Or you think all that nonsense people celebrate about Seal and the wrestler Joshua or Sade Adu/whoever has a remotely naija sounding name or even Meghan is actually being read by those people? kikikiki..

    Heck when I go on holiday, as free as I am, I DO NOT OPEN any silly naija blog, too many things to do, and even if I am free (baby sitting) I am just too content with Reddit.

    • Shandi

      I agree with you but you said you don’t open any Naija blog; you just opened and commented on this one, girl/boy.

      I actually don’t dislike Toke. She is a hustler, and has some smarts. My point is really that its unrealistic to expect John Boyega to know her or want to find out more about her.

    • Fizzy

      April 5, 2018 at 2:29 am

      Own your s—. You hate her. You don’t have to like her. No police go catch you for not liking her. Just don’t be a liar like Boyega.

    • Exq

      April 4, 2018 at 6:06 pm

      You’ve left so many comments on this post; are you Toke or her friends or sisters? Cause I don’t understand. Calling someone an idiot cause he said he doesn’t know her. Listen, for example Toolz, Toke, Eki, Style Editor Bella Naija (that calls herself a “curvy model” cause she has a big butt and has suddenly grown her followers cause of it), Laura Ikeji, etc, aren’t celebrities. I only got to know them when I moved back home via Instagram, and not everyone is familiar with them. Not even everyone in Lagos knows them, not to talk about Nigeria or outside Nigeria. John Boyega doesn’t know her, call it shade or whatever you like; he simply doesn’t and wasn’t being rude. That I say I’ve never heard of someone doesn’t mean I’m throwing shade.

    • Lilo

      April 4, 2018 at 6:24 pm

      I don’t think it’s Toke. I think it’s the freeloading sisters that always looks like she is hiding puff puff in her cheeks.

      You are very observant. I noticed that too. He looked and sounded concerned when he heard she was assaulted. I would say he responded in all sincerety but some nigerians are fond of making mountains out of mole hills. He doesn’t know Toke. What’s the big deal?

    I wonder what we gain by being envious of others toke never mentioned john boyega but a supposed body guard and the issue in question happened before john walked into the restaurant. Same john doesn’t even know daddy freeze and the others interviewing him.create a name for yourself and stop being envious of others.
    Why would she lie when she mentioned the name of the restaurant. Did they deny it?

    • Quisse

      April 4, 2018 at 6:16 pm

  16. John

    April 4, 2018 at 8:08 pm

    But who is Toke Makinwa really?
    That is the real question

    Toke Makinwa is a m’dafvqa who’s popular only on naija blogs and always appearing on front page anytime she buys new pant or bra,

    She is also one of the many imbecilic idiots who parade the Nigerian space referring to themselves as celebrities , An entrepreneur (of what?)
    An oap-On air personality (whatever that means). How that is a job description is beyond me.

    She’s one of the wannabe feminist who came online to write and rant on how a man cheated on her while she has been sleeping and giving doggy to a Nigerian millionaire, married grand pa yoruba demon aged enough to be her ancestor.

    She sold her delusional book to gullible naija women and now thinks she is J k rowlings.

    That is all you need to know
