Toke Makinwa, Nigerian vlogger and radio presenter, has stirred up the hornet’s nest on social media for advising ladies to pick “unnecessary” fights with their partners to spice up their relationships.
This is coming at about a time she claimed a relationship with a stingy man is like disease.
In a video that surfaced online on Saturday, the media personality revealed she had a tendency to “stir things up” owing to her zodiac sign (Scorpio). She also advised ladies to add some drama to liven up their relationships.
“I’m Scorpio and when you’re dealing with a Scorpio chick, you know that we are quite crazy. Yeah, we are bat-shit crazy. I’m the kind of bitch that will piss my man off just because I like to f*ck with his day. Most especially on days when he can’t afford to be pissed off, maybe he has an important meeting or he’s meeting with important people or he’s about to close off a deal. I’m that bitch that will bring hell that day,” she said.
“It’s just what I do, I piss you off and we argue for nothing and when I know you’re in that important meeting, forming vex, going on with your day trying to forget about me, I’m that bitch that will send you that raunchy picture, yeah and I will ask you what are you pissed about again? It’s my way of saying good luck.
“You ladies should try it sometimes. Cause some drama in your relationship. Life is boring when everything is just peaceful. F*ck shit up just because you can. When he’s acting like this girl is so f*cking stressful and I can’t do this anymore, send him that really steamy, hot, spicy picture and be like, why are you so mad? This is what you’re going to be missing. It always works.”
Her relationship advice did not go down too well with some Nigerians on social media platforms especially on Twitter.
Quite a number of users, especially men, vented their annoyance and disgust while others stated their preference for a drama-free relationship.
“On second thought, Toke Makinwa might just be spilling all these talks to get that attention she’s not receiving in real life. No man likes drama. No matter how sensible you are, a peaceful relationship and home are what everyone prays for,” a Twitter user said.
“Toke Makinwa is intentionally leading young women astray and the funny thing is that these days young people call it ‘woke’,” another user said.
Here is what some Nigerians had to say:

Toke Makinwa said you ladies should give your men drama every once in a while, that peaceful relationships are boring. It’s all fun and games till someone else gives him peace while you causing unnecessary noise in his life. Men do not appreciate such nonsense dear. No. At all.

Toke Makinwa was talking to "bad bitches" not wife materials.
Remember she didn't say "my husband" she said "my man"
Doesn't make it right but that's what bad bitches do🤗

If you take Toke Makinwa’s relationship advice serious
Your relationship will end up like a premature ejaculation.

This Toke Makinwa, that lamented her husband Maje left her for another woman. She wrote a book and went all Tonto on him. We blasted the guy and sympathized with her.
