You know Toke Makinwa – best-selling author, It-Girl and now handbag designer, but there is so much more to know about her than her the media circus that seems to stalk her Kardashian-Jenner style. She’s a storyteller, and a style icon in her own right.

Earlier this year, Toke Makinwa sat down with Mina TV Africa’s Stylish Africans– the show that interviews the hottest African celebs and influencers.  The OAP turned author, got real about self-love, the pressure to be a fashionista (and how she doesn’t bother with that), her foray into social philanthropy, and truths she lives by. She talked to them about everything from her tour wardrobe, exercise as her escape (her routine is brutal guys!) , how she uses social media for inspiration, the opportunities it has created, to the empowerment program she’s most devoted to. In this short but sweet video, they get to the heart of Toke’s point of view as an influencer, a humanitarian, and a trendsetter.
