  • About Me
    I, Adesuwa Onyenokwe (Mrs), have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Dramatics arts from the University of Ife, and a Masters in language arts from the University of Ibadan and have practiced journalism in the broadcast segment for over twenty-five years and six years in the print media, in Nigeria After fifteen years as a social services reporter with the National Television network news service, I retired to private practice as an independent content provider for Television, through my production company Universal Communications. For ten years I produced and presented a half-hour show featuring women and issues that concern them, through the programme “Today’s Woman with Adesuwa”. In addition, I also anchored a popular national chat show, One on One, which hosted national leaders in business and politics speaking on development issues. Added to my portfolio is the recent foray into publishing, via a lifestyle magazine called TW. Since 2007, TW has become the prime choice of discerning readers. It is a lifestyle family magazine which is primarily targeted at the cosmopolitan woman, as it addresses the day to day challenges I face in playing my multi faceted roles of wife, mother, daughter, sister and professional. I serve as publisher and editor in chief in the company, TW Media Development Concepts that has staff strength of over twenty, and a distribution network that covers major cities of Nigeria. Following constant and increasing demand for the product outside of Nigeria, TW magazine is now available to readers on line. Visit www.twmagazine.net for details. I am a motivational speaker with a passion for women, youth and development issues who has won several professional awards including the Nigerian Media Merit award 1994 Cadbury reporter of the year, Zenith Bank jewel of the future in a 2006 publication titled ‘Her Story Project’ …amongst others. I am current;y the Vlisco Women\'s Month winner 2014, and producer/presenter of TV talk show, Seriously Speaking. I am married with children.
