The notoriously private OAP bares all in this tell-all interview and talks about her journey to healing and finding happiness again.
Fresh from the launch of her lingerie line, Toolz is in her element on the cover of Genevieve magazine as the popular OAP speaks on her baby heartbreak and the realities of being married.
On the stripped back cover, Toolz wears minimal make-up and her poker straight hair blows lightly around her face.
In an exclusive interview with the magazine, she shares her journey to healing, following a life-changing experience and reveals her battle and triumph over depression.
On losing her baby: I’ve never spoken about it because it was very painful, and it’s still very difficult for me to talk about it.
On the realities of marriage: I’m a die-hard romantic, so I did think marriage was going to be like a Disney movie….no arguments, birds singing every morning. (Laughs) To be honest, It’s not quite like that, but I’m very happy. I think what I love most about being married is being part of this team. It’s amazing knowing that whatever I’m going through good/bad – someone will always be there with me to hold my hand or cheer me on.
Toolz recently launched her own lingerie line called 'Sablier' with the aim of making plus-size women feel comfortable and confident with their bodies.
Super excited to announce that I've just launched Sablier - a premium lingerie line for fuller bust women. It took a few years of blood, sweat and tears, but so thankful to God that it's finally here! Our sizes are from 34D and go up to 42J (for now). A lot of our bras are around N6000 to N8000 so quite affordable!! Thank you sooo much to the team that helped make my dream come true!!

I want ladies, irrespective of their size or body types, to be confident and love themselves, and essentially embrace their beautiful, because beauty is from within and is not dependent on what society dictates.
