One of Nigeria’s foremost make-up artistes, CEO House of Tara and entrepreneur, Tara Fela-Durotoye and ace singer, Timi Dakolo are the newest faces on Y!naija magazine.

Adedoyin Jaiyesimi, Associate Editor, Y!Naija revealed, “It’s a special edition that celebrates the continent’s biggest youth platform, The Future Awards Africa (TFAA), and we are excited to dedicate this issue to the brightest and best of the continent.

“We’re excited by the fact that the exciting double covers feature two young Africans who perhaps best symbolise its essence – Timi Dakolo, whose performances at the awards over the past few years foreshadow his important music contributions from ‘Cry’ to ‘Great Nation’ and Tara Fela Durotoye, a two-time winner and Young Person of the Year 2007, whose feat in single-handedly building make up and beauty into a career path and lucrative sector for young women and men easily makes her one of the continent’s most important female role models.”
