Toke Makinwa Put On Blast By Instagram Followers For Posting New Photo Depicting Poverty...

Toke Makinwa posted this photo and her Instagram handle caught FIRE....Some people think it was wrong of her to have represented poverty like this......I am still looking at the photo and trying to understand it....Perhaps it represents where she is coming from...I dunno but honestly?I dont see anything wrong with this BEAUTIFUL Photo.

And I just saw his royal.fylyness comment
Oh my! That guy is mouthed on IG and in real life i tell u😩

White Diamond said...

It doesn't look right.

If it's supposed to represent where she's coming from,there are other ways to depict that without it coming off kinda condescending.

Having those children in costumes would have done a better job in passing the said message.

Meanwhile, she looks good. Love the gown.

Toke is such a bully, that's why she doesn't have any form of charity where she gives back to the society. It is the followership of the people that gave you fame. Very stingy and self centered.

I honestly don't understand the photo or the theme. It looks more like poor helpless kids looking up to their god, whom they can't touch nor reach... πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†

Who'sThatGirl doubleuteegee said...

First thing that came to mind was what's this pic trying to say?. The photo appears dramatic but it's themeless (if that's a word) so what's the point?

Where did you see a gown? Awon razzo oshi

What about the children looking up to her.Seeing reasons why they should go to school so they can look classy like this when they grow older.I really don't know why people don't see the good side of things,always negative.I was once like these kids born to a poor widowed mother in a ghetto.Here I am today,only if we look like what we've been through.

So our own indefatigable and insatiable white Berry went to Linda to beg for 500k. *deep sigh* let me tell you something people, there is no honour in beggery. Ask @I was touched by an angel or whatever she calls herself now. And the most unfortunate thing is that no matter how much u get from begging, it is never enough else that begger u saw at that junction yesterday, wouldn't be sitting there again today. A little dignity won't kill.

She looks like an Egyptian mummy. Very tacky pic no this is not art.

MrsB said...

Yes she's obviously trying to depict her rise to fame but I'm sure it could have been done better...
Meanwhile their comments are just as worse. 'The Lord has left you' seriously? On top what?

The General's Wife said...

Wanna say "Nonsense concept!

My mouth hung open when I first saw it on IG.
Like it just didn't make sense!
And then Toke came n captioned it "High Street" Abi "High Fashion"
Dirty kids in a very dirty environment and u,in the middle blazing like "200 carat" Diamond just didn't make sense to me.

This is wrong in all shades! This tells more of mockery than transformation. What transformation is she talking about? That you so expensive and they look so razz? Abeg all these cele without the brity should calm down with fakeness!

I honestly see the perspective of the commenters.
No theme: so we can be objective.
I don't know what the intent was.
But this is totally not working for me.
I'm sad much ..

A picture speak a thousand words
What this depicts for me is associated with so many negatives than positives.

They shld cut her some slack mbok!
Can she drink water and drop cup?
Everything she tries to do isn't right
Abeg Abeg Abeg live and let's live.

Photo shoot gone wrong.
What's the message this picture is suppose to pass again?

Anonymous said...

Immediately I saw the picture,i asked myself,what message is this shoot passing?did she appear to them as an angel,or a higher being!then the write up on the picture just worsened the scenario,as she obviously struggled to be in that picture,i won't be surprised if she releases another showing where she hugged the children,toke can do anything for the gram,she doesn't mind going back to the same location to hug and kiss the children,just to justify what she wrote

calabar Chick said...

Can this woman drink water and drop cup?
Why is it that anything she tries to do isnt right in people's eyes?
Abeg they shld let her be mbok!

A stupid photoshoot that reeks of pride. You didn't borrow the moment at all tone, looks like you took center stage. Taking advantage of the poor kids just to pose for the gram

White Diamond said...

And childish too. What does her not being married have to do with anything?

Smh... Another sad attempt at pretending to be virtuous but denying the substance thereof.

You must be very stupid and mad for saying that.can you,portable rubbish or whatever you call yourself be beckoned on the road to pretend to wear dirty clothes,sit on the floor and toke stand so neat beside you to do photo shoot?not to talk of these children that will grow up someday to this picture.

Iphie dearie said...

Hmmmm
How do I approach this now?
Hmmm, let's see....
Let her just have a good story for this piece.. Hopefully there would be a genuine, plausible one.
I think Toke has a good head on her shoulders.

Gladys Odum said...

All shades of wrong!... If she was playing with the kids then cool...hungry black kids In poverty_striken clothes looking up to a fair Lady posing as some demi_god? Lol nawa... hopefully there's a positive story behind this pic

Cynthia said...

Wrong way to pass your message across

Nwa AMAKA said...

I can only interpret her as a god to the kids because that is the way the pic came across. So wrong and her write up did not even help in explaining the shoot.

It's such a condescending and distasteful picture that my heart bleeds just looking at it.
Shame on you Toke for mocking poor kids in this blatant show of grandeur.

Omasiri said...

I am never a fan of her and will never be. She is an egomaniac,vain,pompous,a snob and arrogant. She is a pretender as well.
Meanwhile,i would never choose a lifestyle of 100% affluence. Was once a ghetto child....a phase of life worth experiencing. No regrets.

What message is she passing across,i do not get it.

PL THE GREAT said...

Oh wow! To me, this is an epic miss. Toke, I know you're looking at the pic and you're like, "damn that's a good shot!" But what I see here is a few less privileged kids looking up to a seemingly angelic and untouchable being like it's some Lord and savior or something. Honey it didn't come out right at all. This can be likened to some imagery in the Bible where the people are sitting down and looking up to Jesus in all his glory. I dunno what your creative director had in mind but this shot would have been perfect without those kids.

Fierce of SDK blog said...

There's no message in this mess.

And big congrats to XP on your double blessing.



MUMMY Sdk well done oh. Where's my ihn comment? 😟😟

This toke sef she just like doing rubbish with that her coke and fanta face mttchew what makes her think she is free from poverty ?she is not oo she is suffering from poverty of common sense

Anonymous said...

It's not a gown,it's a coulot(bogus trouser)with fashionable top.she looks very good,the outfit is fabulous,don't like the hair though.she's gorgeous all the same..... As per the photoshoot, it's a no no,it's kinda condescending.there are better ways to express yourself if really she's trying to pass a positive message across.

fresh roses said...

In the end what value did she add to their lives?

Anonymous said...

People should be careful what they post on social media. A picture can mean a thousand words! We live in a sensitive world, where everything has meaning!Toke might mean well yet the pictures comes across negative and sensitive!

DonMayor said...

Sad looking picture. All I see here is superiority, low self esteem and hollow heart.

DonMayor said...

Inferiority*

Anonymous said...

If she has just made a voice for the less privileged. Govt responsibilities to develop those areas. Not Toke responsibilities to cover the reality.
Great pic.

Toke, dumb. Photographer, dumber!

Toke always doing too much

Dark Brown Chocolate said...

If you don't understand art you will never understand the picture. When I saw the picture earlier my interpretation of it was that she finally rose out of her dark times. This is the rebirth of Toke Makinwa, ispite of all she has gone through she she rose out of it all and have come out a better person. Na wetin me see for the pisure be that o.

Initially it was you to hungry for fame.now the fame is achieved what else are you hungry for toke

Joefirst says she needs Jesus in her life.

Anonymous said...

The truth of the matter is that Toke needs to learn how to dress down. She nearly always looks like an ornate porcelain doll. Beauty manifests on many levels.. Loosen up girl...

sisi eko said...

Hmmm I think I get their point, only that they aren't being constructive with their criticism/ analysis of the picture.

Yes it appears a beautiful work of art. But it is also loaded with an underlying innuendo, which simply depicts that a "queen" is seen hanging around poverty stricken kids. And they are in awe of her "royalty"

I think it's a bit spiteful, or oppressive if you like.

Bubble gum said...

The picture portrays a quite disturbing message at first glance

Oh Anon 00:35, thanks. I just saw. * kisses *

Yeah, there are.

Thank u for helping with the words, n if toke dressed like the kids social media will still blow up, a picture tells a lot and this is photography art. Dumb Nigerians with opinions always. Nonsense

I think so too....why not look @ it as "poor children looking up to her" or " she having a lot of responsibilty"..
Mtschewwwwww, fustrated pple!

It might depict another thing, but it kinda looks like a queen amongst her slaves. Somehow she looked regal and had that 'do not touch me but you can only stare look'. Like they are gonna stain her or something as she is wearing white. Also, the kids are happy to
Well, it comes to this when you try so hard to impress people and most times you get it all wrong.

Valerie said...

My dear, the creative director focused more on Toke and just gathered the kids to make their point. We all have different interpretations of pictures. Some good and some bad. Now when 90% viewers see it in the same light, then there is a problem. Just like this. They misrepresented this one.πŸ‘Ž

Anonymous said...

@ 00:35 it's Cullote and not coulot.

Valerie said...

Now the same picture you see can still translate to what you said and be interpreted well if only she had 'looked' down towards them, thereby giving them hope and encouragement. Children are mostly innocent and you find out that most poor ones who dont have means are actually happier even in their state. That is a natural thing. Try and watch the kids at IDP camps around the world. When a royalty comes, they tag along smiling happily. Not necessarily that they wanna be where the person is.

Now this is another dimension to your interpretation

She was there standing like a goddess looking like she was above those kids. Little kids! She should have been smiling at them or held some of them, something to show that she has a connection with them and inspiring them. Not standing like some statue. Pointless picture, even art is sensitive

Anonymous said...

I want to believe this is a campaign for war aginst poverty. Still waiting for the real deal o, as in whr I will see her signing papers as an ambassador. If not, this is very degradin, like I see a kid struggling to touch her like she's some form of 'god'. Well, its up to her. Its Toke anyway, anything to be on the news.

IVORY said...

Really? A typical case of anywhere belle face. What's my own?,smh

IVORY said...

If she had looked down to them with a smile on her face or stretched her hands to them,then that is hope. This right here is superiority,her being untouchable,impoverished children looking up at a kinda god.

IVORY said...

Oh! And those children should be paid. She took advantage of them. They should he paid fir thier role in the shoot.

Iyawo general. Y did u hype urself under d Donald Trump post like dat nah? U fall my hand cos u forgot to go anony. Dat was hw u started on dis blog so u never change? Not a good somtin ma. Smh

IVORY said...

In other words,the little kids are a representation of the dark times right? And you say you understand art but forget that depicting kids in such light is insensitive? You made no sense.

Anonymous said...

I'm sure those kids don't even know who Toke is sef. Cos she nor be celeb like jenifa na. Just an OAP who likes attending parties. So hw will d kids relate wiv her personality? To dem she's jes a glammed up lady passing by. Rubbish

Eka Joy said...

This is sick. Some people will try to justify this, but this is arrant nonsense. Wtf!does she think she is. Even if d director brought up this useless concept, does she not have enough sense on he head to realize, this would be read the wrong way (which is the only way it can be read)
