Jide AdesinaWith several magazines under his belt, he has independently published international magazines such as Hall of Fame and Afrika Herald International Newspaper. He has also freelanced with Niyi Babade, a CNN correspondent for West Africa. A student union activist back in his University days at Lagos State University (LASU), Nigeria, he was the editor-in-chief of LASUMIRROR and Nigeria Today.

My life as a journalist is like a story, it has an unending … a travail of liberation and quest for knowledge; dabbling into experimental hypothesis of a sojourner, looking through the periscope of life, focusing on what’s important, capturing the good times and developing from the negatives, if it goes wrong …take another shot.

It was like yesterday when the beckon of leadership fell on my shoulder as a student union leader and activist to pioneer the media forum of the students union. An assignment that molded and awakened in me a passion for writing thus opened the door for me to become the editor in-chief of LasuMirror at Lagos State University till my graduation. Along that line, I was a member of United Nations students Union and World Conservation club (students wing), and as a student parliamentarian I became the mirror of the school – reflecting the consciousness of our generation… with these pedigree, I became the National association of Nigerian students union editor while I founded/pioneered the pen users club which metamorphosed into Hall of fame International magazine after my graduation from the University.

I had my apprenticeship in journalism with Mr Niyi Akinsiju – publisher / Editor -In -Chief of Fortune & Class Int’l Magazine and photojournalism by Mr Niyi Babade, CNN photojournalist for West Africa.

Hall of fame international Magazine was published in 2004 and officially launched at the Eko hotel La Meridian in 2005. The launching was sponsored by the Eko Hotel and chairman board directors of Eko BANK at that time Alhaji Kola Oseni, with the financial support of Mr Tunji Ayoola, the chief IT OF Union BANK Of Nigeria.

Hall of fame International magazine (print) was distributed across the globe especially Buckingham palace, London; USA, Canada, Kenya, South Africa and predominantly across all states in Nigeria. The magazine cut across race, creed, ethnicity and nationality – founded on professionalism and thorough research, clearly different from celebrity magazines. It has global perspectives that celebrates achievers of these generation which made it first of its kind to bring academic excellence and lifetime achievement into the digital age. We showcased intellectuals, Economists, Technocrats, Bureaucrats and Diplomats of these generation. Hall of fame International Magazine is printed for the use of research organizations and academics and to widen the scope of horizon of our audience to discover ingenuity, understanding historical perspectives in relation with cultural heritage and promotion of bilateral relationships among nations.

In the course of this genre, I became a voice of ‘Africa against HIV/AIDs’ as a community based organizer for USAID to raise awareness of a disease that changed the winds of tides. The experience exposed me to the fundamental aspects of social work service and community work and eventually propelled me into United Nations media volunteering works across the globe. In light of my reality and life experience in Canada, The Afrika Herald international Newspaper was born -‘the consciousness of today’s generation; advocating equal rights, free markets across Africa, preserving the historical facts and myths of Africa heritage and the cultural values of Africa to modernization of this age. The Afrika Herald was published in Canada and distributed in USA, LONDON, SOUTH AFRICA, NIGERIA and KENYA.

To expand my horizon, I dabbled into the world of IT in the areas of mobile apps and web development at Harvard University, USA and also business communication in computer science at Memorial University of Newfoundland, St Johns, Canada; my IT experience and education fueled my writing and journalistic passion hence giving birth to a new and improved structure and reader friendly online website named The Africa Market, a media affiliate of YJ Transglobal Inc, Albany, NY, USA which is jointly owned with my wife Veronica Olayinka Adesina- “Alluring the minds of Africans to soul of its consciousness – Africa the golden heritage of 21st century”
