OGEFASH BLOG DECEMBER CELEBRITY FOCUS IS TOKE MAKINWA”A BUNDLE OF GIFTED GIFTS AND THE RICHEST OAP IN NIGERIA!”
There has got to be an “Extra” extraordinary word to qualify a heroine such as Toke Makinwa. The word is still yet to click, not even the #Oxford dictionary contains a word to describe her. World dictionaries may need to create a new word for a dynamic personality like her.
Toke Makinwa is not only famous as 93.7 #Rhythmfm On Air Personality (OAP) but also famous as a Vlogger who is known for her web television series on YouTube platform “Toke Moments”, a fashionista, articulate television host, author of the 2016 famous novel “On Becoming” where she talked about her estranged husband and survival after the death of her parents when she was 8; she is no doubt an award winning multimedia personality
Just like Toke’s glowing skin, so also is she glowing career wise. Aside the fact that she has her outstanding brands, talk of skin care products, bags, shoes, clothes; she herself is a brand. She is international, self contained, doesn’t depend on any man for survival and answers to no one; she is a boss in her own world.
Toke is the most highly talked about OAP in the country. She is also the richest female if not the overall richest OAP. She is also the only on air personality in the country known by other OAPs in other stations as well as non radio listeners unlike other OAPs just known by the listeners of their stations or better still listeners of their program. She is the only OAP with about three millions of followers on IG; well hope I didn’t exaggerate that? If you doubt me, you may have to check @tokemakinwa on IG to verify that. Then, click on follow so it won’t look as if you only checked to spy on her traffic. She is one personality that dares to be different in all things. Little wonder she was one~time awarded the outstanding female presenter at Nigerian Broadcasters Award. She is accommodating and doesn’t have time for haters or those with envious spirits; they are not worth her time. She is one with a thankful heart.
The chapter of the Scorpio queen- Toke was opened on November 3rd, 1984; 34 years ago precisely when she was born into the family of Caleb Ifemayowa Makinwa and Monica Modupe Mayowa who died at the ages of 35 and 34 respectively in a gas explosion. She and are other siblings ARE such a testimony to be alive. This made the Omo Ondo (Ondo Indigene) to be orphaned at age 8. She and her 3 other siblings (Two other girls and one boy) afterwards went to live with their aunt in Ikoyi. Toke is the second child. She studied English at the University of Lagos.
Toke is a rare gem and a pacesetter. She is one person everyone would grab every opportunity to meet and if given an option to dine with her for a night or earn 5000 dollars, would opt for the former, as a night with a creative personality like her is worth more than that.
Toke’s rise to fame was not something that happened within a blink of an eye; she has indeed paid all her dues. She started out as a banker but she knew deep down that it was not her call. She knew there was something in her she wanted to unleash to the world rather than sit on one chair and do the same thing year in year out. So, she left banking at Zenith and pursued a career in media. She started out in 96.9 Cool Fm but later moved to co-hosting 93.7 FM“The Morning Drive” show. In 2010, she hosted the Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria (MBGN) beauty pageant. In 2012, Toke Makinwa, Tosyn Bucknor and Oreka Godis hosted Flytime TV 3 Live Chicks . In 2014, she hosted the popular Hip Hop World Magazine music show. She also joined Moments with Mo team as a guest host and also featured in many episodes on the EbonyLife TV Network. Toke was one~time ambassador of United Africa Company UAC (2013), Face of nestle Nigeria Maggi, Face of Mecran Cosmetics (2016) and ambassador for Payporte Global Systems Limited.
In 2014, she married her 8 years old heart~th-rob–Maje Ayida, whom later robbed her heart. He betrayed her love for him despite her devotion for him, despite every of her acts to satisfy him and never let him go, despite changing her complexion to keep him. Maje cheated on Toke and impregnated his ex-girlfriend. Anyway, they are divorced now. Little did Maje know that it was a loss of a precious jewelry on his own part.
