As told to Chidera Muoka

Media personality Toke Makinwa is basically putting her mark on every coutry in the world. Living the ultimate baby girl lifestyle, her Instagram account almost counts as a travel and lifestyle blog that revolves around her life.

Where’s home?


What project were you working on?

The Cîroc Hotspot Experience in Ibiza

What advice would you give to a tourist?

There are all kinds of fabulous things to enjoy in Ibiza so you had best keep your mind open because it is always cool to try new things. You will have to go with the flow if you would enjoy Ibiza.

Why were you in Ibiza?

As a Cîroc ambassador, I went to portray the values Cîroc holds dear which ideally speaks about the luxurious lifestyle which Ibiza represents as well. Essentially, I was celebrating my  On Arrival moment.

What do you like about Ibiza?

The amazing destinations such as the Nassau Beach Club, the Lio Restaurant, Formentera aka the tranquil little sister island of Ibiza, the beautiful atmosphere and of course, the fact that you don’t have to keep track of time. You just keep having fun!


What do you dislike about Ibiza?

Apart from the fact that it’s normal, there is this love and hate relationship with the sun. It could be really hot at times, but again it was an amazing experience.

Best restaurant?

The Lio Restaurant of course!

Who was in your local squad?

The amazing South African OAP, Thando Thabethe and rapper Cassper Nyovest.

What was the last tune you downloaded?

It’s a South African song.  Wololo by Babes Wodumo. I enjoy dancing to it, with my glass of Cîroc.

What shoes did you wear most often in Ibiza, and why?

Gucci Embroidered gold leather sandal, it’s very comfortable.

Where’s the party at?

The party is at Lio! That place is beyond imagination. Imagine a club, cabaret and restaurant rolled into one.

What do you do for exercise around here?

I’d take a walk around and admire the amazing landscape.

How did you wind down?

There was a jacuzzi in my room. I did visit the balcony to enjoy the fabulous sights as well with a glass of my favorite Cîroc cocktail!

If you got in trouble, who would you have called?

Joe Nazzal. He looks out for everybody. Such an amazing guy.

What do you miss most?

I miss not paying attention to time, just busy having fun. Literally, I had the luxury not caring what time it was. Wish I could do that here in Lagos too, but you know, work must go on.
