With wellness on the brain, TW Magazine decided to curate an issue that encompasses all things wellness. And to anchor this issue, we sought out a woman whose entirety speaks to wellness – Nicole Chikwe.
Married to superstar MC – Naeto C, a mother to 3 kids, a mom-preneur with a true passion for motherhood, an influencer and so much more, we take a walk in Nicole’s shoes. From being told she’s not good enough to be Mrs. Naeto C to fighting depression after giving birth – Nicole’s journey has been one of self-discovery and now that she’s done cooking, it’s time to get a taste of all she has to offer.
Speaking of being King Size, have you seen our exclusive interview with the cast & creator of King of Boys? For our Entertainment Exclusive, we chat with Kemi Adetiba, Sola Shobowale, Toni Tones & Nse Ikpe-Etim on KOB2, what to expect and what’s next.
In this issue, we also dive into other aspects of wellness. We speak to Kate Henshaw on her journey to 50 through the lens of wellness. She shares how fitness moves her to become a better person. Speaking on how to come out of the darkness of depression, Dr Maymunah Yusuf Kadiri and Zeal Akaraiwe tackle the ups and downs of depression & mental illness, and Yogi Tochi gives practical techniques to come into a life of bliss.
Self-Love is also at work on the outside as we take on key aspects of fashion & beauty. Vanessa Onwughalu Maduagwu takes us to the blurred lines between skincare and makeup. We chat with Eki Ogunbor on body positivity & loving yourself no matter your size. And we take a look at TW’s Editor-in-Chief, Adesuwa Onyenokwe’s birthday shoot in pieces from Schon Afrique.
Why are we focused on wellness? Well, this is preparation for what’s next. Get ready for TW Oasis! Today’s Woman’s wellness event is designed to inform, enlighten and equip you with the tools you need to live a life free of trauma & stress. We can’t wait to share more – but in the meantime, check out this issue HERE!
