Toke Makinwa, a Nigerian media personality, has taken center stage on social media after some yet-to-be-verified reports claimed that she lost her home in the Banana Island area of Lagos.
On July 2, the Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON) had seized assets belonging to Festus Fadeyi and Pan Ocean Group. The corporation said they were holding on to debt of over N240 billion.
There was, however, rumour on Monday that Makinwa’s luxury apartment in Banana Island was seized and that the property — said to have been listed among Fadeyi’s assets — was gifted to her.
As of when this report was filed, the vlogger is yet to comment on the rumour.
TheCable Lifestyle also reached out to a source who couldn’t immediately verify which of the seized assets was hers.
Last month, the OAP had announced that she bought her dream house, at the age of 35.
Some Nigerians have since taken to social media platforms, especially Twitter, to register their different opinions on the alleged seizure of Makinwa’s home.
“Which of your daddies bought house for Toke Makinwa on credit and now AMCON has repossessed the house?,” Olusegun asked.
Here is what some Nigerians had to say:

So it’s Festus Fadeyi! Interesting. I remember his children called out Toke Makinwa few years ago to leave their father alone. That the man was spending a lot of money on her while being heavily indebted to Skye Bank. Kai. Men are Scum.

If you actually believed Toke Makinwa bought a house in Banana Island, the joke really is on you. Do you know how much houses there cost? What business did she do to be able to afford it? When you ask these questions, you’re termed a hater. No wahala

Rejoice not the downfall of Toke Makinwa or anybody.
Today’s downfall might be a stepping stone to greater height tomorrow
The fact that her property got seized doesn’t mean she’ll be sleeping under bridge, moreso, there are some people worse than her that are dragging her here

People like Toke Makinwa preaches what they don’t practice
She made hardworking men and women feel stupid with her tweets.
She made it look like broke people are broke because they were not doing enough.
This is a reminder for everyone that social media life is not reality.

The difference between Bobrisky and Toke Makinwa is that Bobrisky doesn’t even cover how he makes his money. He confidently tells us that his Sugar daddies give him money🤑
