      I don’t get. He should stay no matter what? Even if his life is on the line he should stay? Na wa o. People resign from jobs everyday, the important thing is to make sure you don’t leave with bitterness and resentment.

      I am hoping that what you meant to get across is that you hope he has another job lined up before he upped and quit the one he has already since they do say that a bird in hand is better than two in the bush. The situation must not be conducive if the guy is leaving, he doesn’t owe anyone an explanation. Greener pastures call people all the time.

    I like the way he didn’t go into details and air his dirty laundry outside. Personal reasons is personal reasons. It speaks a great deal about his character that he didn’t try to bring the magazine down because he was leaving.
    P.S: hmmm this dude is fyoine… 🙂

    People oh! Bad belle who don’t have sense at all. The dude left the company doesn’t mean he is broke or doesn’t have sense. Chill out. from his response its obvious that the dude is mature and intelligent. He didn’t give any reasons unlike our brothers ‘Chocolate City’ and ‘Marvin’ struggling to be heard. ABEG

    Kelechi Amadi Obi’s Mania Magazine is a sinking ship.The publication loses over 1.5 million every month due to the non business model of the company.Art does not pay bills alone.Dimeji Alara never added any value to the company in terms of the balance sheet.He was just too concerned with Styling without any consideration for revenue.Loads of unsold copies of Mania Magazine back copies are languishing under CMS bridge at the Vendors hub.The Magazine is an advertisers nightmare and they didn’t build the brand properly.

      Honestly I’ve always thought of how naija magazines make
      money considering the fact that Nigerians will rather do something
      else with their money than buying magazines. Also, we have to
      remember that our reading culture is non-existent. and right now me
      think that an online magazine will be more profitable. People are
      more likely to read online tabloids these days that in
