    1. If we are being honest, Toke got what she deserved. Maje did in his marriage what he had always done in their relationship. He never deceived her, she knew everything from her admissions but she stupidly and desperately went on to marry him. This book might not achieve what she aimed it to achieve. She knew his fuck ups yet was changing this and that to make him choose her, in one sef Maje told her Anita was gf but she was wife and then she calmed down😂😂 Even Majes mother apparently prayed for her to find her own husband meaning she knew her son didn't want her or the mother didnt want toke, so why dint she run then but Toke was desperate and she got burned, no point crying fool.

    1. Pardon me @ Becky; I have this to say:

      Whether the idea of a book is good or not, I cannot predict; time will tell. The Nigerian society is unpredictable as regards how they accept things (whether it will come back to haunt her is another thing and a risk she has to take) but the ISSUE is Toke has been teaching us different things every season.

      This issue of book is for teaching women to be strong and brave doesnt sail to me.
      Did she leave the relationship whole and free?
      Who filed for divorce? (recall she still reconciled with him after the son was born)
      What led to her filing for divorce?
      Wasn't she still with the man even when it was known that he had a baby mama in marriage? What hurt her finally? Was it the fact that he was unfaithful(something she has known for years, even at a point, the pair where living together as a couple by her own admission) or what hurt her was THAT PEOPLE NOW KNOW. The shame and not the actual event.

      She exposed herself as a very weak vindictive woman who always wants to win at all cost. A woman so obsessed with winning that she doesn't know when to stop. A goal-getter. A woman with deep rooted psychological issues. A woman with a fatherly void in her life(she admitted this). A woman who struggled for everything and hustled and was determined; sadly she took all these into relationship. The whole Maje relationship was competitive and she was hell bent on winning the war. Some battles; she wins, some battles; she loses but she thought she had won the war when he finally married her after 3 failed promises; failed attempts organised by who else? Toke, the lady that must win. I will make a sex tape with Maje- I must win. I will be financially supportive of him, I must win. This kind of 'determination' is dangerous in a relationship. She looks to me like the Leah in the story. Jacob married Leah first due to circumstances but his mind was on Rachel the whole time. In her own case, she had the freedom to walk away all the while. Imagine watching a sex tape of your own man with a woman you know and you still stayed. What straw could break this woman's back? Even when he admitted she was pregnant, Toke still asked the gender of the child? Lmao.

      A man told you openly that she is the girlfriend and you are the wife. A husband got a woman pregnant and still told you that 'perhaps, this is what I wanted' and you hung on. For what? Is there a trophy for long suffering? There was no time the relationship was unknown to her. She saw a sex tape of them both, so what the heck? They were living together for a long while. Perhaps Toke, so obssesed with winning thought Anita would just fizzle away after seeing her instagram posts?

      Lessons: what lessons? The lessons keep changing. The book is not even conclusive. Toke is still single and vulnerable. She will still learn more. Did she teach women how to walk away when they can, not when the situation has become shameful and almost impossible to manage before onlookers?

      Delete
    2. What lessons? The book peddles pre marital sex like its bread and butter. Everywhere in the excerpt, you see 3 adults having sex without intent of marriage. Casual, unprotected sex. Sharing of penis. Is this the lesson she is teaching youths? And she says all these like 'its my right', "we made love, he doesnt pour inside me" bla bla. Immorality being peddled as just.

      Same Toke that told the whole world that Linda Ikeji is not a role model? To think she was going through all these in her private life while she was busy castigating others. Now she has been found out; she is milking the situation. Hypocrisy stinks.

      The next lesson Toke tried to teach us was via V-logs. How to handle your man. How to excel in relationship. How not to take rubbish from your man. When she was busy being a monumental failure in hers...I ask again, wasn't this the same Maje she was always hailing as the king of her heart, god of perfection, thank God I found you on Insta? Teaching us how to appreciate the man in our life. Is it not this same Maje who was doing all these backstage? Or was it a different one she was projecting on social media? Now it has gone sour, she wants us to see the other side. New lesson.

      Toke always on her shows tries to teach young women to be confident in themselves. Don't do things just to please a man. But she was in on the sex tape cos "she can do anything to keep her man", she even can 'bleach' to keep him. Miss self confidence.
      Her only saving grace is that the Anita and Maje people she so brazenly exposed their personal lives along with hers (even leaving a sweet memoir for anita's children to read about their mother) will not come out with a rejoinder cos I bet you, they will disgrace Toke if they try it. He who lives in glass house shouldnt throw stones. You're the media personality with a career.

      Toke still tried to teach us via her book, how to be strong, bla bla. But the big question is; HAS SHE LEARNT from her mistakes? Its easy to write books and not adhere to them, same way she makes vlogs and says stuff to inspire women without inspiring herself.
      I wonder the next lesson she'll try to teach us next 6 months....

    5. Well said Bonaparte, that's why it's not good to envy people or wish to be in their shoes. You see all the glitz and glam on social media and think they have perfect lives and marriages but this is totally far from the truth, most of these people are unhappy and fighting their private battles. Who ever knew toke went through so much BS. I can't wait to read the rest of the book

    1. If you watch her vlog, you'll think her life is perfect. She just move on with her US guy already.

      But that her US guy no get sense. Imagine flying all the way to Nigeria to surprise Toke on her birthday. He didn't even Propose.

    2. Wait someone doesn't have sense because he came from America to suprise his girlfriend and he didn't even propose. Wow I don't know if poverty is your problem or what. You should cover your face for your own shame. So someone flying down to naija means they must propose. Nigerian women and I must marry, that's why alot of Nigerian women are in bad marriages. I don't even want to talk about the part you said she moved on already...like seriously.

    4. She just wasted her years on the guy...taking all the rubbish he gave her. He disappointed her 3 times and she still stayed. Did they tie her to him or was he using jazz or something else to hold her back? This book just exposed how much her inferiority complex and lack of self respect and worth cost her so much. She loved Maje foolishly and forgot to love herself. And now she is disturbing him and everyone with her breakup story.

  14. The last paragraph, was Toke talking about herself in the third party or editing oversight. I'd love to read the book too, some part of me is wondering how Maje and his other woman must be feeling about this tell all book. After all, there are three sides to a story and Toke's is just one part of it but considering how sweet we all see her, most people will take her side of the story to the bank.
    Well done Miss, you can now add Author to your list of achievement.

  16. She shed too much. Plus like hnn said, this dress is inappropriate for a book launch for someone who claimed God spoke to her to write a book.
    I remember her also advising girls in their 20s to do one night stand.. .dragging anitas name up and down in that book is not good at all. If we hear from Anita or Maje who is been crucified we will hear other things she has kept.
    Go on Tokstarr....but some of the things you do and say are really not necessary.

  24. Just thought of exposing Anita (the mistress) and making herself look like the Saint. I don't care Toke not like you were loyal yourself. Caught you enough times with my cousin in lekki 1 while still with Maje. You both messed things up. Get over your failed marriage and stop crying wolf up and down.
    P.S- That's an UGLY dress by the way

    1. That's exactly the same issue I have with the book. Can Toke swear that in all the 12 years they dated, she never had sex with another man. Thing is, it wasn't a 12 year long relationship, they kept breaking up and coming back together, it was basically an on and off relationship, she said so herself . Same people that crucified Maje are the same people cussing Toke out now cos they know this book is all shades of wrong. Anita this, Anita that, Haba. Toke you had plenty of chances to leave but you kept coming back for more humiliation. You ain't a Saint in all these, you were a sucker for pain and you still are. If and when you get married again and it doesn't work out, please write another book.

      Delete
    2. You are talking about separation...can she swear that while married to Maje she did not have any extra marital affair? Toke the saint..Maje and Anita the sinners...i like her but this book thing is a no no for me...our society does not permit this sort of public show of shame..

      Delete
    3. If media isn't here, lights, camera off? Toke will go back to maje! If I'm her new guy, I would be worried she's not so into me, more like a rebound. Weird enough he got maje features.

  25. In fact I don't blame him for not wanting to marry her in d first place,just look d dress a grown nigeriab woman wear to a public occasion. D worst thing dat can happen to any man is to be trapped in marriage with an uncultured and shameless woman.

      I tell my friends too, and they don't pay for it. At some point in our lives we've had such experiences. Or is it because she wrote hers down?
      If she wants to make money she should get clues from Chimamanda Adichie.

    2. So that we can read about her and make. I care less about hot 2/3 adults decide to live their lives. God even our own God gave us the choice of how to live. If toke had written about any other other thing, even if its using her experience t write a motivational book, I would have bought. She slandered Anita and makes name and trying to portray the perfect woman. I commend her for working hard, but slandering names in the process to get rich is not it at all.

    3. Anon 11:24, in literature there is something called fiction and non-fiction please read up.
      She has written a book and spent money to publish. What the story is about is irrelevant. Support people or don't but don't expect someone to give you freebies off something they spent money on.
      Anita and Maje, deserve all the slander they get. When you all insult Yoke you enjoy it please let her enjoy her time.
      Women always supporting nonsense.
      You all will rather she pretend like nothing happened. Her life, her reality and her choice. How you deal with it is your concern, she has published the book and will make money off it.

Did you think of ur vlog that you dish advice while you couldn't advice yourself, do you think ur fans will still take you serious? You lost the battle over a man and you want to die there.
