Nigerian radio personality, television host, vlogger, lifestyle entrepreneur and author Toke  Makinwa was one of the phenomenal women who filled the room and by default, she also celebrated her own birthday alongside Brutal Fruit Spritzer. 

Makwina spoke about her own personal success, which she largely attributes  to the support she received from various women throughout her life.

“When I met my makeup artist, she did my face like she was auditioning to be the best makeup artist in Nigeria. And then we started working together. Now she was worried about makeup, I had one less thing to worry about, which is makeup. And then my stylist moved from Manchester and had no family in Nigeria, it came Christmas, and she never went home because she also believed in the vision of being successful.

"I love being around people who inspire me, and who remind me that life and success is a journey. It's funny how a lot of people view success as a destination and that's how you find thinking if you have a level of materialism then you're successful. 

But we forget that success is all about the journey, the journey itself of who were destined to be. It's a very different walk. There are certain people who need to associate ourselves with who will remind us on our bad days that we're capable and destined for greatness," said Makinwa.
