It’s the month of August!
Can you believe the first part of the year is already gone?
Wow! How did we get here so fast?
It was certainly a busy first half of the year for us here at TW Magazine. We have brought you many memorable covers, from the uber-talented movie maven, Kemi Adetiba to the dancing queen, Nkechi Harry Ngonadi and of course, the African diva herself, Chika Ike.
We planned to bring you yet another beautiful cover in the month of July, but as fate would have it, the release of the magazine was unavoidably delayed until the month of August. Well, whoever said that behind every disappointment lies a blessing didn’t lie!
It turns out that August is an auspicious month!
Our cover girl, Funke Akindele Bello (Jenifa) turns 40 on the 24th of August! As she expands on all fronts – marriage, family and fame – she shares our cover with the love of her life, Abdul Rasheed Bello (JJC Skillz).
In this double cover, the power duo speak with refreshing candor about love, fame and family. Our Editor-in-Chief, Adesuwa Onyenokwe, was able to tease the fiercely private couple out of their shell, and we are so excited to share their inspiring love story with you!
And speaking of our Editor-in-Chief, do you know that Adesuwa Onyenokwe’s birthday is on the 8th of August? Now you see why we say August is a special month!
Our TW Matriarch adds another year to life, and we couldn’t be more proud of all she has accomplished, and we are continually inspired by the way she does it all while looking absolutely stunning (and ageless!).
So, we have two special birthdays in the month of August! How great is that? But we are not done with all that August has to offer. There is one last special announcement…
For those of you who have been readers of TW magazine over the years, the name, Kemi Ogunleye, will no doubt ring many bells. She is the talented and amazing woman who served as our Managing Editor for more than three years before moving on to other pursuits in 2013.
Well, guess what?
SHE IS BACK!!! Yippee!!
Yes, Kemi Ogunleye has returned to the TW fold (in truth, she never really left) as Editor-at-Large! We are so excited to welcome her back into our team! We know that with her guidance and oversight, we will continue to dish out more of the inspiring and brilliant content that has made us your magazine of choice over the years!!
With all this excitement, all we can say is STAY TUNED for our July/August Edition which will be available next week. We will be releasing the cover and all the behind the stage action next week. Sneak Peek –Between Funke and JJC, there is a lot of dancing, serenading, laughter and most importantly… Love.
And as TW enjoys all the special things that August brings, we also hope that August brings special things for you too…
