Gbemi Anthonia Adefuye, known professionally as Toni Tones, is a Nigerian media personality, actress, and photographer.

Life[edit]

Adefuye was born on 20 July, the youngest of a family of five. Her early education was in Lagos which she completed at Queen's College. She modeled for Durovo because he was a friend of the family when she was fourteen.[1]

Her full name is Gbemisola Anthonia Adefuye and she went to the University of Lancaster in the UK where she studied marketing and economics.[2] When the course was complete, she returned to Nigeria in 2009 to explore her interest in show business. Her brother had been a musician with the band Oxygen and Tones initially decided to be a show business photographer. Her portfolio caught the attention of D'banj’s reality show, Koko Mansion.[1]

In 2017, she continued to do photographic work[1] but was then both behind and in front of the camera.[3] She has appeared as an actor in the web TV series "Gidi-culture"; in several films[4] including "It's Her Day" in 2016.[5] She also starred in the movie "King of Boys"[6] as the younger Eniola Salami. The movie premiered on 21 October 2018. At the 2020 AMVCA, she earned herself a nomination for 'Best Supporting Actress in a Movie or TV Series' for the movie 'King Of Boys'.[7]

In 2020 she was in the cast of Quam's Money which is a sequel to the 2018 film New Money. The follow-up story follows what happens when a security guard (Quam) suddenly becomes a multi-millionaire. The new cast was lead by Falz, Jemima Osunde, Blossom Chukwujekwu, Nse Ikpe-Etim and Tones.[8]
