Mother’s Day Special: Omawunmi & Mum On The Cover Of Genevieve Magazine

Funke Akindele Is the Boss Lady On Y! Magazine

 A  lady who has created numerous unforgettable movie characters – Jenifa/Suliat/Omo Ghetto…Funke Akindele is on the cover of the new issue of Y! Magazine.
Funke has featured on so many magazine covers and this is definitely one of our faves..
It’s an edgy and sexy Funke Akindele on the cover of the influential pop culture brand Y! Magazine. The actress holds centre stage for the magazine’s 7th edition as it profiles the most exciting ideas across Nigeria — in technology, business, education, fashion, development, entertainment, the media, governance and more.
Funke Akindele is a public face and name who best exemplifies the trend of pushing the envelope and staying at the cutting edge,” says Adebola Williams, who is managing editor for the magazine. “Where Nora Ephron meets Tyler Perry, she has several created iconic pop culture characters using indigenous language. Her movies are continuously at the cutting edge and she has set upon raising standards in a way that is inspiring to a new generation of filmmakers and professionals across sectors.

This edition is very dear to our hearts. We went around the country to look for the best ideas, the brightest innovations, the most cutting edge technology – young Nigerians who are doing amazing work across sectors and setting a new standard for Nigeria’s future.
There’s a feature on the exciting Co-Creation Hub, an arena that pools talent, ideas and projects that are redefining Nigeria’s technology space; the Innovation Factory which is changing the way we see New Media in Nigeria; Student Circle which is revolutionising the way students across the country access knowledge, two young people who have found a solution to Nigeria’s power challenge and two deal web sites that are changing the way we buy and sell.
There is an interview with Idris Ayo Bello, an ideas factory who is responsible for Wennovation, Libraries Across Africa, AfyaZima, and The Next Cool Idea, a conversation with the three young men who run the path-finding as well as an interview with the two young men behind the influential music website
The magazine also travels the country and discovers that the governments of Rivers, Akwa-Ibom and Anambra are harnessing their young citizens and grooming them for global competitiveness.
Y! also interviews 12 young Nigerians aged 21 and below, and christens them ‘The New New Establishment’. They are already driving Nigeria’s future and include designer Adebayo Oke-Lawal, blogger SheiFunmiBookneto founder Iyinoluwa Aboyeji and Sokoto-based Ahmed Mukoshy who created the Yarnable website.
All of this is capped off with a delicious mishmash of pop culture highlights — including the ‘Signorina Vintage’ style shoot, Terence Sambo exploring colonial architecture in Lagos, a feature story profiling the rise of the glossy magazine, interviews with Banky W, Kelly Hansome, Beat FM’s Gbemi Olateru-Olagbegi, Soundcity’s Olamide Adedeji, Tinsel’s Gbenro Ajibade, and reviews of music, movies, radio, television, stage restaurants, gadgets and books from across the country.
This is not the usual fare that you’d find in magazines – we have gone the extra mile to find a bouquet of the most impressive ideas from young Nigerians, who are now able to compete in a global economy.
These are the guys who really own the future; these are the guys we should be celebrating. We’re extremely proud of what our team of editors has presented to our readers this issue – it’s a gift!
Y! Magazine is now available with vendors and stores across the country.
More information – including where to buy Y! – is on the website
