As if she was waiting for the perfect opportunity, Toke Makinwa, queen of the Baby Girl Association, decided to use her birthday to serve us her own definition of #Stew. Releasing the most daring shots of her recently minted bod’, Toke served not one, not two but three sultry looks in some of the sexiest bikinis we’ve seen in a minute.
Call her a marketing guru or Nigerian Kim K, you would have to agree that Toke Makinwa knows how to get tongues wagging and draw attention to her brand, so what better time to do it than on her birthday?
To say we were pleasantly surprised would be apt but really, we can’t complain about a boss chic who is sensational and assertive.
TM declares Chapter 34 a time to “love thyself.” Sharing her birthday shoot, she captioned the above image thus:
“The book of TM…. Chapter 34 – 3/11
Woman thou shall love yourself 💥💥💥💥💥
It’s my birthday 🎂 💃💃💃”
The lens behind the smoky images was held by none other than Felix Crown, who was able to perfectly capture Toke’s renewed essence. Helping bring out her glow was her friend and personal makeup artist, Anita Brows, who kept the makeup earth-toned and shimmery while Bernard Smiless matched the look with the perfect curly hairstyle.
In her first photo, she rocks a simple yet captivating white two-piece set. The second is yet another two-piece, this one by Nigerian designer, Andrea Iyamah, and in the third, she channels her inner Nubian Queen by going for an incredible dashiki print one-piece from Sshhh Lingerie; her choices were, of course, all thanks to her stylist, Harvella Styles.
Check out how stunning Toke Makinwa looked for her 34th birthday shoot…
