Not everyone has embraced the revelation as fans are torn about whether she would do a good job on the show. Toke however has remained unfazed by the mixed reactions.
Toke also shared her story to inspire people who have aspirations that seem crazy. According to her, she once had the thought of hosting the Gulder Ultimate Search, but she dismissed the thought as “crazy”.
My journey is one of grace, time and chance. In 2013 I got to sit down with past winners of GUS, my career was at its early stages and as I interviewed them I had this crazy thought in my head that it’ll be totally crazy if I get to host this show someday, I think I even said it to them, I quickly dismissed it cos I thought it probably would never happen.
8 years after, I am the official host for the new Gulder Ultimate Search – “the age of Craftsmanship”. It’s new, it’s refined and I cannot wait to take you all on my journey on this adventure.
I share this video to inspire anyone out there who like me has crazy thoughts or even an almost unlikely idea, it looks impossible only because your Time and Season is yet to come.
It’ll come, I promise you everything good will come. Keep doing you, keep believing in the special grace that one day your season will come, everything you’ve done on this journey will lead to such a beautiful season that time will have to respect you.
I know you all thinking how can my glam life be substituted for some jungle living right? You’re just going to have to find out. Plus I love how versatile my brand is, I’m Queening in every department cos I can ❤️
