Award-winning on-air personality, Toolz Oniru-Demuren, who took a long break from TV, is back on screen with a new lifestyle show called The Wrap Up.
In Vanguard Allure’s June 4th edition, Toolz tells us why she’s been away from TV for so long and what makes Accelerate TV’s new lifestyle show a must-watch.
On how many women look up to her as an icon because of her charisma, style, career and family life…
If I’m going to be completely honest, I get quite scared when I think about being looked up to. I’d always thought that being in that position meant you had to be near perfect and here I am with lots and lots of flaws!
When I get positive messages from young women, I get very bashful but it has to be the best part of my job. Asides from being a successful media personality, my main aim was and is to make a difference in society. If me being me has impacted someone positively, I’m truly thankful to God.
On how she feels about being a part of Accelerate TV’s new show…
Very excited! On The Wrap Up, I get to discuss a wide variety of topics with special guests. Some are rather risqué and we often leave our filters at home.
The Wrap Up produced by Accelerate TV launched on May 31st, and revolves around interesting, topical and controversial issues in society, pop culture, sex, fashion, and other interesting talking points.
The show is driven by Toolz and her celebrity friends while they’re having fun, playing drinking games and chatting with no filters and no holds barred.
