“The choice was simple really,” said Tinsel actor Ifeanyi Dike Jr, who is supervising editor for Teen Y! “Who is the all-time, anywhere-in-the-continent coolest teen symbol? It’s the guy famous as ‘Omo Baba Olowo’.  There’s no one in the market as successful, as hardworking, as iconic.”

Added Daphne Akatugba, who is contributing editor: “Teenage trendsetters everywhere know Teen Y! as the only hotspot for fashion, lifestyle and all the stuff that matters; Davido mirrors that X factor perfectly. We are excited to work with him over the next three months, and beyond.”

  1. My name is joy and I base in USA…“My life is back!!! After 1 years of Broken marriage, my husband left me with two kids . I felt like my life was about to end i almost committed suicide, i was emotionally down for a very long time. Thanks to a spell caster called High Priest ADODO which i met online. On one faithful day, as I was browsing through the internet,I came across allot of testimonies about this particular spell caster. Some people testified that he brought their Ex lover back, some testified that he restores womb,cure cancer,and other sickness, some testified that he can cast a spell to stop divorce and so on. i also come across one particular testimony,it was about a woman called Sonia,she testified about how he brought back her Ex lover in less than 7 days, and at the end of her testimony she dropped High Priest ADODO 's e-mail address. After reading all these,I decided to give it a try. I contacted him via email and explained my problem to him. In just 3 days, my husband came back to me. We solved our issues, and we are even happier than before. High Priest ADODO is really a gifted man and i will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man… If you have a problem and you are looking for a real and genuine spell caster to solve all your problems for you. Try High Priest ADODO anytime, he might be the answer to your problems. Here's his contact:{[email protected]}.
