UPDATE: IPHONE/IPAD,ANDROID USERS, GUESS WHO HAS AN APP NOW???


I am so excited about this, to be honest I feel really blessed to have met some awesometastic peeps as I journey on through  life. A while ago, I saw a tweet by some fans who thought it was cool to build a "Toke Makinwa"app for me. I am so grateful for that act of kindness and i'm totally loving it. Thank You.

I checked it out again recently,  all my blog feeds, Vlog headlines and so much more are on there. You can download it on your IPhones, IPads, and Android phones all you need is to search for Toke Makinwa and you will see the app.

A huge company contacted me over the weekend, they would love to meet with the guys who built the app for me and I don't have their contact information. You see, they tweeted it at me and haven't reached out to me since I responded.  I need them to send an email to me on Tokemakinwa@gmail.com, the company wants an app as well and I will be thrilled to introduce them.

A little act of kindness can travel a long way. Be good to someone today

UPDATE: PHOTO SHOOT; COMING SOON

LIGHTS, CAMERA AND STRIKE A POSE

I got a photo shoot done recently, the pictures haven't come out yet but if you have been wondering why I haven't updated our blog, no vex o, before I left town everything was manic.

So the amazing Yomi Black took the pictures, the shoot was styled by my stylist Lucy of The  fashion portal Nigeria and Seun did my make up.

The Vlog has gained momentum of late and a lot of people don't quite grasp what the "Toke moments" is all about. I would love to  have my own talk show very soon by GG, and in Nigeria you and I know how challenging that is.

 I started putting out 5 minutes clips of myself every wednesday and I talk about every and anything with the hope that the public will love it and i can eventually put that as a segment of my show. Ya dig???

The photo shoot is to launch and promote my Vlog sessions and here are some pictures I took on set

HELLO LONDON, MISS ME?

I LOVE LONDON

Toke Makinwa
I got in on Sunday night and I brought amazing weather with me. Hehehe! Before I got in, I heard the weather was terrible. The cold was unbearable and it snowed late March into early April. I guess I am favoured right?


So I haven't taken a holiday in a year, the last time I was out of Lagos was in April 2012, i went to Spain for 5 days and i have been looking forward to going away again.



I miss work already, i can't even get my mind to relax. Anyway, if London is your home, you have a visitor, keep in touch and let's see how we can do something fun

PICTURE STORY


BankyW had a party at club euphoria during the long easter weekend, here is what I wore to the party

Toke Makinwa

I love the peplum dress so much, it cinches the waist line and makes a girl like me look like there is some curves in there. LOL, "me and my chinese body" Hehehehe! 

It was so much fun at the club that night. Good music, great company and enough to laugh about till it was time to go home. Why i'm i  just blogging about this? I have been MIA and i guess i am updating my blog too.

And another one,


 Special Thank you to Bellanaija.com for the pictures,  i'm in London for a couple of days, trying to rest but my emails, phones and the internet wont let me. Lol..... Don't mind me jo, I am addicted to keeping busy
