Gbemi Olateru Olagbegi

 On 1st May, launches a brand new op-ed series called 30 Days, 30 Voices. “Through this monthly series, aims to delve into the hearts and minds of a still evolving generation,” says Tolu Orekoya, Subeditor for Y!/YNaija. “We want to know what makes them tick; beyond politics, beyond the economy.”This follows the March launch of the highly successful YNaija FrontPage (a daily op-ed series on the site that has presented exciting voices on national issues from the perspective of young leaders)with seven daily columnists.

“As writers, as young Nigerian minds within our borders and beyond, they have incredibly rich and diverse stories to tell. We want other young Nigerians to get a sense of their experiences; what other topics they choose to explore, whether it spans the globe or happens right here at home,” says Orekoya says about 30 Days. “These are one-off contributions, and their pieces will centre on their personal experience: a profound occurrence, an opinion on events, reflections on life, living and so much more.” 30 Days, 30 Voices will be
featured on every other month, with the following set occurring in July. See the full line up for May below.

On 1 January, 2012, the brand made the crucial decision to pivot and deepen its brand essence, aligning it with the Y! core vision already expressed by Y! Magazine and Y! TV’s ‘Rubbin’ Minds’—which is. to focus on issues that affect and concern the informed and engaged young Nigerian. While focused on its vision to be the most influential contemporary culture force in Nigeria, especially for the upwardly mobile young person, Y!’s mission is to inspire thought, provoke action and stimulate growth.
Over the past three months, has gained the distinction of being an issues-compass—with opinions, editorials, features, analyses, commentary and essays that focus on the issues, debates and conversations that are front-and-centre for an aware youth population.

Leading this process are the YNaija FrontPage and the 30 Days, 30 Voices series. The FrontPage is presented courtesy of The Future Project & Debonair Bookstores.
