She’s probably the most sought after media personality right now, but Toolz is now reportedly off the market. She’s rocked our world on radio and TV, is a photographers’ delight on the red carpet, and honestly almost every man’s desire. Tolu ‘Toolz’ Oniru, ever since returning from London in 2007 to work as a radio presenter at top urban radio station The Beat FM 99.9, has been turning heads and stealing hearts. And several men have been linked to this ‘well endowed’ lady who is in her late 20s.
We’ve heard of the likes of upcoming rapper Beazy, dancehall act Shank, producer Don Jazzy and rapper Lynxxx – although these were all speculation. Many other men have professed their ‘love’ for her and we’ll tell you why…
Over the years we’ve seen media personalities stumble upon success without being able to utilize the opportunity. Toolz has been very smart – starting out as an OAP at Beat FM anchoring the ‘The Midday Show’ and gradually working her way into other ventures – hosting the viral Ndani TV interview segment on ‘The Juice’, hosting several events, working with worldwide platforms like MTV, and setting up her urban-themed website.
One can smell some endorsements coming her way soon. Besides, it’s not every day you get a call from well known media personality and legislator Abike Dabiri telling you ‘well done you’re doing a great job’. But what does it profit Toolz to gain all that attention (and money!) and not be with that special somebody?
Many have been asking for months; Who’s this gorgeous Lagos princess dating? Who’s the man with the master key to what hundreds of men would kill for? NET can authoritatively tell you that he’s none other than a young man named ‘Tunde Demuren.
Multiple sources confirmed to us last week that Ms. Oniru is in a ‘steady (and steamy) relationship with Tunde Demuren.’ And it’s very likely wedding is on the cards.
Tunde (who is in his late 20s), is a trained pilot, the younger brother of EME Chairman Segun Demuren, and the son of long-serving Director General of the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority, Harold Demuren.
We’re told the pair have been dating for a while, but kept it secret from the public until recently, when – surprisingly – they started giving hints on twitter and arriving at dinner and parties together.
‘It’s not industry news’, a popular friend to the couple who asked for anonymity says. ‘Tunde and Tolu have been kicking it for a while now; they don’t hide it from us. They don’t want it going public so you guys don’t spoil it for them’ she adds. Another source close to them says it seems the couple became more courageous about going public after Pop singer Tiwa Savage and manager-fiancé Tunji ‘Tee-Billz’ Balogun ‘came out’ in February.
When NET contacted the couple however, they neither confirmed nor denied the affair. ‘He’s a very good friend’ Toolz says, while Tunde who’s also a director at EME and one of Banky W’s closest friends declined to comment.
Maybe they’ll spring a surprise like Tiwa and Tee-Billz?! But before then, just in case you’re still doubting, and want concrete proof Toolz is head over heels in love with Demuren, you may want to watch her interview with Ice Prince on The Juice. It took only one question from Ice to destabilise the OAP- ‘how’s Tunde?’
She didn’t have to answer. As they say, actions speak louder than words; and her actions in response to the question provide all the answers you need…
