    Just in time for Christmas, the 10th issue of Y! Magazine is out, and this new edition is certainly a first for a lifestyle magazine in Nigeria. The magazine, unveiled exclusively to invitation-only guests at the Annual Y! Magazine Black Ball in Lagos on Sunday, 16 December 2012 has controversial singer and actress Tonto Dikeh on its cover – but, in a bold move, it’s an illustrated cover!

    “We are excited to have pushed the envelope,” said its editor-in-chief, Chude Jideonwo. “Y! Magazine launched with a bold artistic presentation which was the Omotola cover, and it’s a tradition we have re-ignited. In the new media space, the place of the magazine as a conversation starter might be undergoing a makeover, but the art and essence of the magazine should remain the same. It stands at a unique position as a media event and a cultural catalyst, provoking and driving the popular dialogue with features, conversations, imagines, narrations, even controversy. Like the venerable magazine editor Tina Brown has said – you want to publish something that generates energetic debate; otherwise, why would you want to publish it?”

    With a cover story themed “How do you solve a problem like Tonto Dikeh?” that investigates the cultural phenomenon that Ms. Dikeh has become, it kicks off a new Y! Magazine cover philosophy to give deeper insight, beyond predictable interviews, into the Nigerian culture and issues zeitgeist.

    I think it is. She was sort of spiraling out of control there for a minute. I am glad she seems to be back on track. I hope she gets some guidance and serious support. I think she tweeted abi is it twitted about it

    “How do you solve a problem like Tonto Dikeh?”
    What kinda cover story is that? Is this real journalism or a tabloid junk?
    Tonto should sue them for libel.

    Tonko may have a few issuses (who doesn't?) but to label her a problem is an overkill.
    C'mon now, this is somebody's daughter and sister that we're talking about here.

    your type of friendship na waya.
    you won't step up and tell somebody somethng they need to hear because you're not a mentor and don't want to cross boundries.
    my friends have had to tell me "bia enyi, simmer down jo. you can get mad all you want to but you need to simmer down"

    see? that's what my friends do

    It's funny because I remember this naija dude trying be a "mentor" to married woman. They were doing "bible study" in his house and stuff. Until the man's husby took a gun to his house and threatened to blow his head off if he doesn't leave his wife alone.
    So I always keep it strictly professional when I relate with women, especially with married women. I don't like fishing in another man's pond....that always leads to trouble:roll:roll
