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.

What kinda cover story is that? Is this real journalism or a tabloid junk?
Tonto should sue them for libel.

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
