Toke Makinwa Says Do NOT WhatsApp Call. I Totally Agree.

Forgive me father for I have sinned. 

Yesterday I had a class from 8pm to 10.30pm and an assignment I was meant to turn in before midnight. It was already almost 11pm when I left the class meeting and I felt exhausted so I promised myself I would get to it once I wake in the morning, and I was certain I would. However I woke up and the first thing I did was to open instagram and then I saw was Instablognaija reporting on Toke Makinwa's Vlog, saying that guys should not Whatsapp-call a girl they're interested in. I knew that the minute I opened the comment section my assignment would be delayed but I couldn't help myself. And open it I did. And of course a hundred juvenile comments fell on me so I ran away and opened PowerPoint to start my work. Unfortunately as fate would have it, my friend chose that very moment to send me a message on WhatsApp and guess what,  it's the very same thing she's talking about!

Read our chat below. 

In her vlog Toke says "call and by call I don't mean WhatsApp call. Spend your money on me. If a guy whatsApp calls me I feel some kind of way". Although I'm not a fan of Toke Makinwa or anyone's relationship vlog for that matter, from my chat you'd find that I vehemently agree with her on this one!

Like I said, if you're my man or just a friend, it's very fine by me. But when you're trying to get with me and you want to do so via WhatsApp, you insult me! 

So let's settle this people! You know where I stand. You know where my friend stands, from the comments on Instagram many people also share her view. Now where do you stand? Share your thoughts. 

Ps; instagram is one of the biggest time wasters in my life. I mean, it's super useful but still one of my biggest time wasters. And now to that home work... 😔



  1. Pls let me lol first . Lolllllll.
    I agree with Toke and you as well, if we are already dating , yeah fine . But whatsapp call when you are ' chyking' me . No no . I will be very very irritated .

  2. I agree too but my dear ladies,na money em take buy data na and again,call na call(be it whatsapp or telephone).Our Standard these days be higher than walls of jericho but it's okay.

    1. Exactly, he's paying for the internet connection. As long as there's strong signal and talk is audible, why not? I reckon its the content of the communication that matters more, and besides, there are arguably better ways to test if a man is willing to share and spend his financial resources for one he professes to like/love.

      Remember MTN midnight calls? I believe a lot of successful relationships and eventually marriages resulted because of this largely free means of communication. Chrisyinks

  3. I don't even know. I don't even like the whatsapp call Ian probably because I have only used it successfully twice in ten tries. Lemme think about it more and come back. Lol.

  4. I don't like making calls via WhatsApp because Nigerian network, but I don't know what the fuss is all's not like local networks don't give you free airtime; free airtime enough for you to make over 1 hour calls and make International calls. So if the annoyance is because nicca is using "free data" to toast you, then I don't know what y'all going to say when same nicca gets 4000 for loading 1000 airtime and makes you happy by using 3999 on you. Lol.

    1. Lol. Since the bird has learned to fly without perching, the hunter has learned to shoot without aiming. Biko what network? Lol

    2. Lol. That's Airtel but I think all the other networks have similar bonus packages. I'm only interested in Airtel's because it serves me much more than my other networks whenever I move out of Lagos.

  5. But with WhatsApp call, I'm not spending on you, I'm spending on other things to get you

  6. i believe you need data to use whatsapp and you buy data to get data, so whats the big deal? It's all these silly reasons that keep some people from knowing the real things and values required to maintain a relationship. A call is a call mbok so far the line is clear and both parties hear themselves loud and clear. Teerex

  7. Too many rules tbh

  8. I don't think a serious guy should call you on Whatapp as a toaster.

    It breaks all the rules of seriousness from his own end.

    When its not secondary school love. Haba.


  9. I don't like whatsapp call for anything, it pisses me off because the clarity is just terrible,as for the matter, i agree with you and Toke. No time Biko. Maybelline

  10. Calling with whatsapp is not free.
    I think its petty. Does it really matter? How much is airtime sef? With all the bonus on bonus that the telcos do these days. Is calling really a cost?

    The guys that hardly call ko. The ones that only do chats. What yall gotta say about that?


  11. I cant even believe people listen to Toke.
    I consciously do not listen to Rhythm 93.7 whenever she is on. Cos I dont want my IQ to reduce.


    1. but she's actually very intelligent. part of which is expressed by seamlessly transitioning from being serious to being tongue-in-cheek. Unfortunately, most people don't recognise the latter, and think she's being serious.

  12. unless the guy is struggling financially (which is fine, as long as he has potential), i agree with Toke.

    if the guy is comfortable, but chooses to be a cheapskate in something as basic as a phonecall, i have to agree that he does not take you seriously.

  13. I saw one funny stuff on the internet one time like that says women should beware of guys who call them with whatsapp call and wants to have sex with UNICEF condoms, I laughed and didn't think much of it...if whatsapp calls work fine for somebody, I don't think there's anything wrong with using it, as long as the message is passed but network in Nigeria sef will not gree, there are lots of other ways to spend and show care na.

  14. Call is call really whether whatsapp or nah. He might prefer whatsapp becase he can talk to you longer on it. However, i actually agree with Thelma on this, in the chyking stage whatsapp call shouldn't be used.

  15. Ok, more often than not i find Toke kinda off but on this issh, i absolutely agree with her..... i see guys who cant spend thier phonecredit to call(not WhatsApp call hehehe)a babe they claim to be wooing stingy and damn lazy.

    YES, i know WhatsApp calls needs some form of data but that dont count with me. I remember one guy that was trying to woo me earlier in the year,he would always bore me with strings on whatsApp msgs(have you eaten, did you sleep well, consistently for months biko, when would men get the memo that these strings of questions dont show no care?), then he later graduated to whatsApp calls(which i kept ignoring of course), by the time he finally figured it out and started normal calls, i still wouldnt pick his calls, i lost all interest in been wooed by him,ordinary phone call and normal conversation you cannot manage,hian.


  16. Me i don't mind, after all data is not free and its not cheap either. Provided the guy is making an effort to communicate. What of the lazy toaters that only want to chat via sm and are even lazy with the chat, then they expect you to just fall in line because...

    1. I agree with you, I don't know why #TeamToke is fussing over this. But erm...WhatsApp call is cheap, veeerrrrrryyyy cheap. A one hour call is approximately 20MB which is equivalent to N10. N10 for 1 hour of toasting. Buhehehehehe.

  17. whenever I hear whatsapp call my first thought is always the video call. besides what's even difference between using using whatsapp call to toast and using it when already dating.

  18. Do not toast me with Whatsapp call i will not even pick

  19. I hate WhatsApp call cos the poor network always frustrates me.

    And those arguing that he's using data to call me, Memphis's analogy up there says he'll probably spend 10 Naira on one hour of call which is cost effective if we're already dating but you're asking me out and you can't call me for 3-5minutes with your airtime? I won't even pick up, not because I have something against you, but because I hate WhatsApp calls..

    Memphis and Kon please help me with that Airtel bonus credit ish cos I've been using my line for 5 years now and na every other day I dey buy credit, no bonus.. Epp a sister in the Lord.. Tenkyou

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…


Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

One More Post...


He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
See how you are serious dey read this story....!


A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…


I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!

Question of The Day.

TTB readers doesn't this tweet below remind you of something?
That mail that someone sent me a few weeks back. 
But why on earth should a man sleep with his son's fiancé? But what am I saying, some men even sleep with their daughters...

Oh well, I'm throwing the question to you. What has happened in your life that you never saw coming, you never hesperred it, you never imagined could happen, you never imagined could happen to you? 
It could be good, it could be bad, it could be ugly. Do tell!
And it can be more than one. Let me tell you a few. 
-owning a blog -week long dry fast at Prayer City (I never hesperred it).  -staying in an (emotionally) abusive relationship.
The others require anonymity. LOL. Now over to you.
