She mentioned that women should never be pressured to get married before the age of 40. Toke opined that there should be no threshold for finding true love.

Here is what she wrote on Twitter;
“When did growing older become an insult???
Like, Nigerians will use everything to insult you.
Don’t go and marry, you can’t keep a man, don’t go and born, keep cruising till you reach 40 like is 40 the deadline???
I’m not understanding.”
