Media Star Toke Makinwa Details Hotel Nickname ‘Item 7’ From VIPs During Climate Summit Backlash

Celebrity’s Attendance Proves Controversial

Popular TV host Toke Makinwa sparked outrage by joining Nigeria’s COP28 delegation, with many questioning her participation in the climate talks.

Online Furor Initially Disregarded

Makinwa said she initially brushed off the intense online backlash over her attending the Dubai climate summit as part of the large Nigerian contingent.

Harsher Judgment From Notables

However, the criticism began feeling more serious when influential figures also started dubbing Makinwa “Item 7,” a dismissive nickname referencing her place on the delegation list.

Unfazed Reaction to Moniker

Despite the demeaning hotel moniker from important COP28 guests, the media star laughed it off and felt it proved the backlash was among the top summit trends.

Sense of Accomplishment Maintained

Overall, Makinwa maintained she accomplished her aims in Dubai regardless of the prominent criticism. The unflattering nickname highlighted the extent of the widespread skepticism.
