Popular Nigerian TV Presenter, Toke Makinwa has addressed some situations about the ‘Bro,’ ‘Sis,’ ‘Dear,’ and other slang that people majorly use in Nigeria. Toke Makinwa also continued warning people not to use the word ‘dear’ or ‘darling’ for her especially those who she seniors for over 15 years.

Today being Friday, the beautiful TV Presenter, Toke Makinwa has taken to her Twitter page to talk about the way people talk to her calling her ‘dear.’ She made four different tweets talking about this as she also replied to some of the comments that people made.

In the first tweet she made, she analyzed that it surprises her at times when she listens to someone far younger than her to call her ‘dear.’ Toke Makinwa didn’t stop there as she said for especially those who aren’t even friendly with her.

She continued in the second tweet she made saying she doesn’t take respect too seriously. She then warned that instead of calling her dear Toke Makinwa, they should just call her by name or say ‘hi/hello.’

The third tweet was something similar to the second tweet as she then asked surprisingly in the fourth tweet why a lot of people like using ‘Bro’ and ‘Sis’ in Nigeria.

Nothing makes me cringe as much as hearing a younger person use “dear” to address me, even worse if we are not friendly. Stop using endearing words for people who are not in your circle, who is your “dear”? Use my name or just say hello/hi, you don’t know me that well.

I am not so big on respect, but if there’s a good 15 years between us and I am not your buddy, just say hi/hello or use my name, endearments are sometimes too familiar or is it the African in me jumping out? I’m open to this discussion.

It’s not really about the age, but more about the familiarity. If we are not buddies in the same circle living together, I’ll just prefer if words of endearments such as “dear” are left outside our interactions.

Another one, why do we sis a lot? Is calling someone by their name really against our culture? Why do we like to use sis or bro a lot?”

Finally, Toke Makinwa seems to be surprised the way people do call others ‘bro,’ ‘Sis,’ ‘dear,’ and some others as she warned that no one should call her ‘Dear.’ She made known that she prefers to be called by her name or just say ‘hi’ or ‘hello.’
