I met Toke Makinwa- and she had a lot to say

Hi guys! If you didn’t know, I’m back in Lasgidi (Lagos, Nigeria) baby! I only got back Thursday night, and it has been good so far. I’m so jet-lagged right now, but I had to put this post up, before I get too lazy. Even though I was tired from my flight yesterday, when I saw on Instagram that Toke Makinwa was having a meet and greet for her book, you know I had to go. If you don’t know about Toke, you probably missed this post, you should go read it before reading this!


My first thought when I saw her was, “Wawuu, she’s so light skinned and pretty.”

The meet and greet was so chilled, we were served free frozen yoghurt by Toksstaar, hung around the cozy fro-yo joint (Sweet Kiwi), and gisted. Toke is funny and down to earth, I expected nothing less. The only glitch with the event was that she arrived an hour late (African time), and we had to wait outside in the scorching sun.


Super playful woman too!

This was the outside set up of the venue, nothing too fancy.

My outfit, I had to try since I was meeting the Queen of slay herself.

You guys know I wouldn’t see Toke, without asking her some questions. These are questions I’ve been pondering on after reading her book, and I’m so glad she could answer them. The videos below show Toke answering the questions I and some other girls asked. Btw, the internet is so slow here, and it took me hours to get these videos up, and I’m happy it eventually did.

  1. When asked if she’ll be doing a book tour in other countries, like the US?

2. When asked why Chapter 10 of her book is empty….

3. When asked why she finally decided to get a divorce..

2. When asked if there will be other books

I didn’t go see Toke alone in case you were wondering, went with the bestie. Also, you know I had to get myself the ‘On Becoming’ face cap.

Thanks for reading guys! Merry merry christmas to you all! Watch this space tomorrow, to see my Christmas outfit.
