Toke Makinwa, is one of the online personalities rocking the Media world. The English Literature graduate takes us into her fashion world and talks about where she sees herself in 5 years.
In an interesting Interview with Ama Badu for Glam Africa, she talks about her hit Youtube series, her Wardrobe essentials and favourite designers.
On where she sees herself in 5 years
I am working towards being a global brand. I want my name to have gained international status in 5 years. I am also working on my own talk show, which I pray will be huge.
I want to have written a number of lifestyle books and I am working on launching my own label brands. I am laying the foundations of all of these aspirations of mine now and I can only pray towards achieving them all and more.
On The Impact Her YouTube series Toke Moments Has Made
The series was not something I took seriously at first… I didn’t realise it would be so successful. No one seems to talk about the problems they have and I wanted to be the friend in your head, to voice what you normally wouldn’t.
I wanted to connect with people on a different level.
Fashion & Lifestyle Corner
Five wardrobe essentials:
1. My bra of course
3. Every female should have a little black dress
5. Something mesh, because it’s sexy
7. Lots of shoes and sunglasses.
I have so many of them but I am a Dior girl, I love Dior. I love the stylish sandals by Aquazurra, first the wild thing and now the pom pom. I love April by Kunbi, Grey, Toju Foyeh and of course Lanre Da Silva.
Favourite holiday destination:
I like Europe, anywhere throughout the continent.
