On-air personality and author of ‘On Becoming‘, Toke Makinwa has posed nude in a campaign for her new beauty brand called ‘Glow by TM’ and expectedly, the nude image is already generating controversy on social media. While some praised her for being bold and daring, others condemned her nudity. In the picture, Makinwa sits fully nude with arms and legs crossed to cover her private parts.
“When you glow there is nothing to hide,” Toke said in the caption for the post.
One commenter criticised her move, saying, “there is nothing to hide anymore. Unleash the other parts while another said “remove your hand from your chest since there’s nothing to hide”.
But it was not all condemnation, as another commenter said: “Women should be allowed to express themselves whichever way the chose to, this is not been naked in my opinion.”
In the same vein, another said: “I don’t see anything wrong with this. Yes, she is a Christian, a grown up woman, and yes we young ladies look up to her. She is promoting her brand. And who are y’all that are judging.”
Makinwa was criticised by some for “going against African norms” while some fans said her move was anti-Christian. Reacting to the condemnation, the television personality said: “You will find that people will always have opinions about your decisions. Don’t take it personally, it’s simply because they are not courageous enough to take action in their own lives.”
According to Toke Makinwa, ‘Glow by TM’ will be launching on August 8.
