“I will pick an ambitious partner over a dreamer” Toke Makinwa

Popular Nigerian Vlogger Toke Makinwa has given some dating and relationship advise in a post/video she made on Instagram earlier today.

After her divorce, Toke has channeled her energy into various business ventures by launching her luxury handbag line and Body cream line.

Toke stated that she has worked so hard to achieve her dreams and will not be in a relationship with a dreamer but an achiever.

On a flight with one of my favorite Aunt and we started talking about dating and the difference between her time (generation) and ours. “You ladies today are too industrious she said, if you are not selling hair, you are doing fashion, all of you have a side hustle, how can the men meet up”, can you marry a man with Potential she asked me.
My response : What is Potential Aunty, how do you define potential? I( i am sure she will laugh if she sees this.)The Vlog today is a discussion, Let me throw it out there. Dream Vs Ambition, they are two different things o, some people will sell you a different dream every year, they are so comfortable talking about this dream they do nothing else but talk. You get exhausted from hearing them talk without action. This year you want to do oil and gas, next year you want to sell cars, every year a different idea with no implementation or set goals. They are so comfortsble having so little yet they despise you for wanting more out of life. 😂😂😂😂😂 bia, na me do you?
I remember watching Acrimony and feeling like that guy was lazy. Yes I said it. Nothing wrong with his dream but he lacked ambition, he could have gotten a job to support his wife as he worked on his dream on the side or maybe she enabled him sha o, that one is another topic for a different day. I will pick an ambitious partner over a dreamer. We all have dreams, me self be dreamer but what are you doing now to get there? How are you plotting, planning, what do you do with what you have now? I don’t know it all but an ambitious person is driven and will always want more out of life. Stop taking about how this guy did it or how that one had help and get to work.
