According to Toke, being featured on the weekly half-hour magazine programme is a dream come true, and her desire to appear on it was one of the things that pushed her to be better at her craft.

“I remember sitting up in bed a couple of years ago watching African Voices on CNN. It was Tiwa Savage’s episode and I was intrigued just watching her talk about her craft. I won’t forget in a hurry. She was in a studio and I just kept thinking to myself, ‘One day, one day CNN will interview me too and it will be ever so inspiring,’” she said.

“Watching my journey humbled me. It’s easy for us to focus on what we haven’t achieved yet without taking stock and giving ourselves credit for how far we’ve come.

“To everyone out there with a dream, give yourself a break, work at your goals but be in the moment always. It may not look like much is happening but look back – you are not where you started.”
