Glam Africa Cover: On Air Personality Toke Makinwa Goes Afro Chic!




In an editorial spread for Glam Africa Magazine, The Power Issue; Nigerian On-Air-Personality Toke Makinwa show cases her Afro chic side in an array of stylish shots.

In the interview that preceded, she talks fashion, relationships, career and her outlook on life in general.

On her YouTube Series; “Toke Moments”…

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.

On her 5 wardrobe essentials…

1. My bra of course
3. Every female should have a little black dress
5. Something mesh, because it’s sexy
6. Jeans
7. Lots of shoes and sunglasses.


On her favorite Things…

Favorite designer:

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.

Favorite holiday destination:

I like Europe, anywhere throughout the continent.

Favorite Nigerian cuisine:

Amala, Gbegiri and Ewedu.

Favorite international cuisine:

I am a pasta girl but I haven’t had any this year. Cutting seafood pasta from my diet was the hardest thing, ever.
