Toke Makinwa, vlogger and radio presenter, has come out to say that a relationship with a stingy man is like disease.


The television host and entrepreneur, who has been speaking about relationship in recent times, said this in the latest episode of TokeMoments titled ‘Scarcity Mentality is a Problem’.

“Today, much ado about stingy people, miserly people. Dating a miserly man is like a disease, dating a miserly woman is like hell fire. Like i don’t understand the logic behind people that are miserly. What are you guys so afraid of?,” Makinwa asked in the video.

“I used to be afraid of being poor long time ago and even then I was not miserly, it just made me double my hustle. I found out that if you are dating a guy who is stingy to himself is the worse kind of relationship you can be because you will always be excessive in his book.”


The 34-year-old media personality, who seemed to have a strong aversion for uncompromising standards when it comes to relationship, warned her fans about people that suffer from scarcity mentality.

“It is very important that you find out who you are dating, if you end up with someone that suffer from scarcity mentality, you are in trouble for the rest of your life,” she added.

“Those are the people that see you as excess. There is nothing you do that is right. If you want something it is like its a want and not a need.”

I am sooooo fine 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 okkkkkk let’s focus shall we??? It is Wednesday and my crazy side is here. Let’s talk about those miserly people. I call it “scarcity mentality”. They hate to spend on themselves talk-less of spending on other people. Dating a miser is so exhausting, even if you work hard, you will always be excessive even for the basic things of life to them. They will always find a way to make you look wasteful or feel bad for wanting more out of life. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣. Stay away from people who suffer from “scarcity mentality” for your own peace of mind or you’ll defend why your kids should go to good schools, why you want more out of life, you’ll always explain yourself forever 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣. Watch, like, discuss (I’m all up in the comments) and pls subscribe too. Link to YouTube in my bio. #Vlogwednesday #TMtalks

In May 2019, she had charged single women like herself to pursue their dreams without being inhibited by societal constructs. According to her, only men with nothing to offer run from successful men.

In 2014, Makinwa had married Maje Ayida, whom she had been dating for close to eight years, but separated from him after discovering that he had impregnated his ex-girlfriend. She is currently single.
