Eat your hearts out, Toyin Lawani slams Critics.

Fashion designer and social media personality, Toyin Lawani, does know how to get people to pay attention to her. The mother of two practically went on a posting spree some days ago as she uploaded several nude and sensual pictures on her Instagram page. In some of the pictures, she was with dark-skinned Gambian actress, Princess Shyngle, who was also skimpily clad in undergarments alone. According to her, she was promoting her skin and other beauty care products.

As was to be expected, the pictures were met with a lot of criticism.  Responding to the barrage of insults, Lawani wrote on her page:

“This is how we break the Internet. Please when people do skin adverts, what do they wear? Awon oponu (stupid people). What have you seen that you’re shouting? Do I look like I care about your silly opinions? Yes, I’m a serial entrepreneur and role model to many but you all forget that I’m also an artist, model and skin expert. Forget my status (and) focus on what you want to learn from me."

Meanwhile, some followers also cheered on Lawani for the pictures, describing them as works of art. There was also a time the diva put up a challenge of 2 million for a date and in response, a self-acclaimed highest paid sex therapy in Nigeria, Hauwa Saidu Mohammed popularly known as Jaaruma of Jaaruma Empire has taken up the challenge thrown by serial beauty and fashion entrepreneur, Toyin Lawani that anyone seeking to have a date with her must first pay her N2 million naira by paying the N2 million into her account.

Toyin Lawani of Tiannah Empire made the revelation through her Instagram handle, adding that Jaaruma seems to have the knack of oppressing her with money.

She wrote:
"Which kind of friendship is this o @Jaruma_empire will just be bullying me with money. Imagine no respect, she just paid N2 million into my account now and said she wants to have lunch with me, that I should meet her in her house in Dubai. The very first time she came to my empire she was so impressed with all my work and what I was running there. She gave my staff N1 million just for supporting me and how welcoming they were,” .
