  • 2 Indian Origin Women On Forbes Richest Self Made Women List

Toke Makinwa is out with a new episode of her "Toke Moments" vlog and in this episode, she's talking about the Kylie Jenner Forbes magazine cover that was released this week. Whatever Jenner's worth may be, many on social media took exception to her being called "self-made" since she is a member of the wealthy and famous Kardashian/Jenner clan.

Just like many others, Waleed Aly wasn't at all impressed with Kylie Jenner appearing on the most recent cover of Forbes. "It is not shade to point out that Kylie Jenner isn't self-made", Gay tweeted. Yes, she made that cash.

Kylie Jenner shocked her fans when she recently revealed she "got rid" of her lip fillers, and a source tells ET that the decision was influenced by her becoming a mom earlier this year to daughter Stormi.

"Social media is an unbelievable platform", Jenner told Forbes. Forbes estimates the brand alone - which Jenner maintains sole ownership of - is worth almost $800 million. "So top executives at tech firms who are compensated for helping significantly grow companies make the ranks but not second-generation-women running family businesses".

On Wednesday, People published a story claiming that Dictionary.com was "shading" Forbes for its cover story, causing yet another disagreement on the correct use of a word. The magazine estimated that Jenner's cosmetics company, reality TV gig and endorsements have helped the 20-year-old (she turns 21 in August) rake in a $900 million fortune.
