You asked for a star, we give you two shooting stars…!

For TW, Christmas comes early and what better way to get in the spirit of festivities than to double your expectations?

TW storms the stands with glamorous twin covers for our November/December Edition adorned by Queen of the moment – Toke Makinwa and the evergreen South African sensation – Bonang Matheba.

In this edition, Toke opens up like never before and tells our publisher in this exclusive interview that she is done crying, “I’ve never been one who shies away from problems” she says. For the first time, she speaks intensively on her failed marriage, how she has picked herself up and oh yes, she hints us on the inspiration behind her book ‘On Becoming’.


Enter Bonang Matheba, we bet there are a million things you didn’t know about this Red Carpet slaying and show stopping South African On Air Personality. This diva has one mission, and that is to show the world the stuff she is made of. “Now they get to see the inside of my life, how I put my fashion together and the business behind what I do”, she said.

Our fashion editorial is a glorious trend setting black and white spread of select designs by top designers from the just concluded Lagos Fashion and Design Week 2016. Its your 2017 style resolutions & wardrobe choices all sorted.

      May God continue to bless her. She will continue to shine and will get to greater heights. The more you wish to see her less, the more she will flourish and you will see her on billboards, all tv channel etc. You sir/ma will cease to be an enemy of progress by the grace of God.

    I love Tw, genevieve and forbes africa but I think their distribution is poor. I actually dont know a constant place to buy them, I normally get a copy from the road side or if I happen to go into a shop/store that has a few copies in stock. Where can one buy these magazines? why are they not stocked at shoprite, ebeano, spar and the likes?

    All I can say is Reze Bonna the best photographer ever! Tuale for you Sir. I’m always inspired by his work I always have. The Photoshop is not in my face!
