November 2, 2020

You wonder; “Why these three women?”. 

You wonder what they have in common. Don’t worry, I got you! 

They have two things in common:

They are strong women who are doing wonders in the entertainment and creative industry. 

Toke Makinwa: 

Toke Makinwa has been a force to reckon with since she came into stardom. She started as an On-Air Personality but believed she could do more. She became an actress, vlogger and owner of leather accessories store, TM Luxury. She was the first ambassador for PayPorte, she was also an ambassador for brands like Nestle, United Africa Company of Nigeria, Ciroc amid others. 

In November 2016, she published her memoir, “On Becoming” which became a best seller. 

When it comes to fashion, she is a stunner. We can’t get over the fact that when she dresses up, she makes fashion enviable!


Nengi came into the stardom after finishing as the second runner-up for the just concluded Big Brother season 5. She is not a newbie to the industry. She is a model and once competed for the Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria pageant where she came out excellently as one of the top five. 

She is an ambassador of the PayPorte brand and she also slays effortlessly in her outfits giving us all the positive vibes we need.

Ini Edo:

Ini Edo is an amazing star who keeps shining. She is an award-winning actress who never relents but keeps doing more. She has appeared in over 100 films and she remains one of the most successful actresses in Nigeria. 

She was appointed by the United Nations as an UN-Habitat Youth Envoy. In 2016, she was appointed Special Assistant to the Akwa Ibom State Governor on Culture and Tourism. 

She is also a fashion icon as she always slays effortlessly in her outfits. 

These power women are excelling in their many endeavours and continue to slay while at it! 

Peep how they all stylishly rocked this co-ord set which, by the way, you can get for yourself on PayPorte. It looks stunning, sexy and adorable on them, hugging their body perfectly. 

We are crushing on them!
