Our Celebrity of the week on EB , is a vivacious and award-winning on-air personality , OAP and hottest of them she is no other than Tolulope ‘Toolz’ Oniru .How well do you know her ? or is it just the name you know? We on EB would be telling you much more than you know about the hottie. So seat back and enjoy the EB Experience!
Tolulope was born in Lagos to the famous Oniru family of Lagos and kinda bred in the UK, but was lucky enough to spend a few very impactful years in Lagos where she finished off her primary and secondary education. Although she’s spent the last 12 years in London where she had her A levels and degree at the City of West Minister college. She wanted to study medicine but her phobia for blood sent her in a different direction.
Today, She has a degree in Business and Mass Communication from the London Metropolitan University, Toolz claims to be as Naija as the boli and epa (roasted plantain & peanuts) lady on your street corner! LOL
She dumped medicine for entertainment because It is one of those things I just fell into after I finished from the University of Westminster, where I studied business and communications. When I did my A levels in mathematics, biology and chemistry, I was planning to read medicine but after studying chemistry for a year, I realized that it was not really for me. After A levels, I told myself I wouldn’t be going for medicine and I had to convince my parents on my decision. They freaked out! After university, I found myself at this sales job which I did for about seven or eight months. After that, I ended up working at MTV but I soon realized that entertainment obviously, was my thing. At that level, my parents supported me.
Tolu loves to wear mostly dresses in the bid to considering her body shape , she loves shoes. She has a very womanly body figure which she says she got from her mum. She knows how to dress. Toolz understands her body type, and knows exactly what to wear to play up her best features.
Before joining The Beat, Toolz worked at MTV in London for a few years where she learnt how to work, hard and play even harder! Her interest in broadcasting grew even more during her role at a radio station in London. She was working behind the scenes, but would constantly daydream of being in front of the mic.
She then decided to move back to Lagos in 2009, and is enjoying her new journey of rediscovering this crazy but fun city.
Before trying her hand at radio presenting on the Beat 99.9FM, Toolz gained extensive experience within the British entertainment industry, having worked at MTV Networks Europe for several years before moving on to the Walt Disney Motion Pictures Group.
Toolz as she is popularly known as, currently hosts her own radio show ‘The Midday Show with Toolz’ (weekdays) on one of Nigeria’s top urban radio stations – The Beat 99.9FM.She also hosts ‘The Juice’ on NdaniTV an online initiative powered by GTBank.

It seems to be that without fail, Toolz trends at least twice a month. When Toolz first became popular on the scene, we heard nothing but praises about her body and her s*x appeal. What makes Toolz so unique is her natural and alluring curves. The fact that her body is proportioned in such an intricate and precise matter makes her a beautiful sight to behold indeed
After a successful audition process, Toolz began hosting her own radio show in April 2009 and her blend of natural humour, love of most things showbiz, passion for music and strong African entertainment knowledge makes her show one of the most sought after –by listeners and celebrities alike.
Toolz has served as a judge for the Channel O Music Video Awards both in 2011 & 2012.

Despite all of the heavy insults thrown at her by jealous criticizers on twitter, Toolz just will not break down. She will not stoop to the level of those who are ignorant. And, she will not beg for the insults to stop. In fact, she seems to be pretty much oblivious to it most of the time. She’s confident. Confident because she is assured of her beauty from within, and does not spend time dwelling on the opinions of others.
All in all , Toolz can be defined as A smart , humble , outgoing , social ,confident , hardworking ,beautiful and a fresh naija babe.
