British-Nigerian actor, John Boyega has cleared the air on an alleged altercation between himself and popular Nigerian On-Air personality (OAP), Toke Makinwa.
Makinwa had alleged that she was bullied by Boyega’s bodyguards in Decemeber at a restaurant named Crossroads while the actor watched idly.
The On Becoming author in a lengthy post on Instagram narrated how she and her friend were assaulted and intimidated by Boyega’s bodyguard while she visited the restaurant.
The Hollywood star was a guest at Cool FM, On Wednesday and while he was answering questions from OAPs, Daddy Freeze, and Kaylah Oniwo, he sarcastically claimed not to know Toke Makinwa.
In a video circulating on the internet, the “Force Awakens” actor referred to Makinwa as “that” adding that he does not “roll with bodyguards”.
“I did not kick anyone out of the bar. First of all, who is that?” he said in an interview on Cool FM.
“I’m from London. I don’t know. I’m sure if I know the person is, I’d have known who she is.
Why is it so surprising to them that John Boyega doesn’t know who Toke Makinwa is?

“I’ve never had a bodyguard in Nigeria. I don’t roll with bodyguards. When I came in December, I came on holiday.”
“First of all, first of all, who is that,” he said. Well, he looked surprised as he claimed not to know who Toke Makinwa is and even referred to her as “that.”
Toke Makinwa is yet to reply Boyega’s assertions.
