Toke Makinwa Slams Critic who Questioned her Gulder Ultimate Search Hosting Skills

Media Personality, Toke Makinwa has received a lot of criticisms since she was announced as the anchor for the 2021 Gulder Ultimate Search but she decided to set things straight with a certain critic who questioned her ability as the GUS host.

A Twitter user identified as Omotayo said that the reality show lost its viewership after the organisers announced Toke as the host, claiming that the TV host does not fit the criteria to be the anchor of the show. She said all OAPs and hosts have their own specialization and she feels Toke taking up the show is weird.

Omotayo Tweeted;

“The truth is viewers lost interest in Gulder Ultimate Search the moment they announced Toke Makinwa as the host. This isn’t about h*ting or anything, I just believe TV hosts and OAP have their own area of specialisation, toke taking up the host is weird, is like Frank Edoho hosting for Beauty pageant, there’s different between Agbero and final year exam”.

Responding to the Toke condemned the lack of inclusion of women in a male-dominated field, she also criticised the critic for trying to bring her fellow woman down.

Speaking further, Toke said that when she interviewed past winners, she thought it would be weird hosting the show one day but she was, however, given an opportunity to. She also concluded by saying that she is thankful for the job and watching her dreams come true regardless of how people feel about her.

Toke wrote;

“I would usually ignore this but the human TM comes out tonight. how do you sit back and tweet this yet fight for the inclusion of women in an already male-dominated field? Make it make sense. Since I was announced as the host of GUS it’s been one thing to the other, first why Toke, then it wasn’t about my hosting abilities but my wearing make-up, then it was the position certain shows are not meant for e, I can’t win with y’all.

It’s a shame to see women who should root for another woman to get her feet on the floor in the door so that a lot more women could possibly be considered in the future tear down.

I remember interviewing past winners of the show in 20014 and thinking it’ll be totally wild to get to host this show someday. 2021 came with an opportunity for me, I am incredibly thankful to watch my dreams come true regardless of how it makes people feel”.

Meanwhile, here’s how Netizens are reacting:

Iamade_damola: “Toke’s summary is you people have not seen anything. She just start to dy make unah worry.” 

Laurryjones: “The problem is not the hosts, the problem is the viewers ability to accept change.” 

Iamjesspink: “I seem to be the only one who feels indifferent about her being the host…why do most women h*te themselves.” 

Princessbase_: “If she didn’t fit the criteria I doubt if a reputable brand like that would make her the host.”
