Popular media personality and actress, Toke Makinwa, has shared her experience from the COP28 Climate Summit in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

It would be recalled that an online outcry followed Toke’s inclusion in Nigeria’s 1411-member COP28 delegation, with many people questioning her attendance.


Toke Makinwa, while speaking in the latest episode of Toke Moments podcast said that she didn’t care about the online backlash at first, but that she started to take it seriously when some influential people started referring to her as “Item Seven” at a hotel in Dubai.

She said;


“Yes. I accomplished everything I set out to do with it [COP28]. I was just shocked [by the uproar]. And I think because Dubai is three hours [ahead of Nigeria], I woke up to see the backlash on social media.

“For me, it started feeling serious when important people started calling me. And I think that for me was funny. I walked into this hotel in Dubai w. they were a lot of important people, all of them have seen the backlash and they started calling me ‘item seven’ and it was funny. We all just laughed. It was so funny.”
