Toke, who stars in Ifan’s latest production, Foreigner’s God also features on a second cover for the magazine dressed in a faux fur IAF Label coat.

Read excerpts from their interview below:

Ifan on Foreigner’s God: The Foreigner’s God is an in-depth story. I consider this movie a challenging work of literature. This is an evergreen classic which will hold fondness to anyone who sees the movie.

Toke on her character: When I was informed of the role by the producer, I went through a series of emotions; fear, doubt compassion. Rape is a huge issue, millions of women out there suffer in silence and being able to stand with victims of rape with my voice is an opportunity I wouldn’t miss in a lifetime.

Toke on expecting to see her more in Nollywood: I really enjoyed the stage play and to think stage plays are the hardest, but I put in all I had, fell in the process but everyone loved it. It was wreck nerving but I’ll do it over and over again.
