Exclamatory or Togo paradise whydahin Mole NP, Ghana

I took some pictures of paradise whydah's in Mole NP in Ghana. Despite the poor quality of the pictures, is it possible to say whether these are Exclamatory or Togo paradise whydahs? Please note that except for 1a and 1b, all pictures show different birds.

I'd say that 3 and 5 are Togo, based on the very pale nape patch, forget 1 and 2!
