“Anything you put Shaffy Bello’s name on it is bankable, reliable and it has class.” And we couldn’t agree more.
For November/December 2020, Today’s Woman has a phenomenal issue. Not just because of its content which is packed with great subjects, but majorly because of its cover star – The Shaffy Bello!
“Aunty Shaffy”, as she’s fondly called by those who love and adore her, is a unique blend of parts. She’s a phenomenal actress whose on-screen persona is as distinctive as her real-life character; a remarkable mother who has raised 2 independent & conscious young adults; a daughter who you will find uniquely values the essence of parenting & family; and so much more.
In the issue, we get to understand her divorce, the many workings that make her who she is today and get a glimpse into the beautiful symbiotic relationship she has with her kids. It’s a tell-all that tells you exactly who Shaffy Bello is – an eagle whose wings are still spreading.
Here’s a sneak peek;

On being 50
To me, 50 means confidence and being able to say no, being grounded. It is knowing what I want and what I don’t want and being able to stay away from what I don’t want without apologies. I am super happy and comfortable. I don’t regret anything I have done so far. It has brought me here. The journey has been great. I am confident to say God’s grace is upon me that anything I touch is not mediocre…
In this issue, we also introduce the maiden edition of our movie section – “I Just Dey Observe” which takes a look at the hot movies hitting the cinemas. For this edition, we observe Kunle Afolayan’s “Citation”. We also take a look at how late Ibidunni Ighodalo’s 40@40 wish came true; and how the fashion industry braved all the storms of COVID-19 virtually.
