Queen of the (Gold) Coast! Yvonne Nelson shines on the second cover of Y! Africa
Y! Africa continues its twin cover tradition!
Last week, it unveiled its first cover with Africa's youngest billionaire, Ashish J. Thakkar sharing his inspiring story of surviving his environment and building a global business. The 32-year-old from Uganda is founder of the Mara Group and the Mara Foundation.
This week, it has issued the second cover - actor, producer and serial entrepreneur; Yvonne Nelson. The Ghanaian superstar talks about her work, her businesses, her vision for the creative industry, and where she sees Africa's future.
"Y! Africa is focused governance, enterprise and technology, but it also has an eye firm eye on the culture," says its associate editor, Tunde Kara. "The culture weaves the underlying thread that advances the aspirations of any people, and those like Nelson who are its glittering stars, make it possible."
Y! is available in stores and from vendors across Nigeria, and is also distributed in Ghana, Rwanda and South Africa.
In Nigeria, you can also pay for the magazine with your mobile phone or online at Okada Books (www.okadabooks.com) and Exodus Estore (www.exodusestore.com), and have it delivered to any part of the country (click on magazine, click on the Y! Africa logo and place your order).
