Club owner Pretty Mike is in the news again and this time instead of chaining up women with dog chains, he has named his pet snake after one and a well-known female celebrity at that.
Media personality, Toke Makinwa who is known for many things including her fashion sense and constant controversial opinions is now being referred to as a snake, following Pretty mike’s revelation of the chosen name for his slimy creature.
The entire internet was left abuzz when he first revealed that his new found love was named after the On Becoming book author but even got worse when he decided to share details on why he chose the name.
In a recent interview, Mike opened up on why he chose the name, he said:
“I named my pet snake Toke Makinwa because every Toke Makinwa is a snake. I named my pet python Toke Makinwa because I believe that she is not just a snake but a huge snake a python. And this is based on some things she talks about and writes on. There is a lot of cunningness and sneakiness to her. She is not your normal lady and it is time to let people know. Some people attacked me that why would I name my snake after her but the truth is that the name is patented and she does not have the right to the name. She is not the only Toke Makinwa in the world; there are so many of them. She might be the more popular one but right now, my pet python is even more popular than her.”
Defending his choice, Pretty Mike revealed that Toke might not have a problem with it. In fact, he alleged that the diva would not see a problem with it and would even take it as a joke.
“She understands that this is pure entertainment and as entertainers, we could diss ourselves in public but because we are entertainers, we know that when we are behind closed doors, we would talk to each other and settle any issue. We would see ourselves and say something like, ‘Mike that was a nice one.’ That is the beauty of the maturity entertainers have. We can do whatever we like in public, but behind closed doors, we know it is just for the show.”
