There is now a fresh addition to the highly respected soft sell industry in Nigeria. As you’re savouring this piece, one of the big guns in the genre, Kunle Rasheed, has resigned his appointment as the Editor of Global Excellence Magazine and has taken over as the Publisher of City Rovers Magazine. The former Editor of the Mayor Akinpelu-led journal took a bow days back. Before now, City Rovers operated as a blog and is one of the hottest blogspots in this part of the country. Having spent almost two decades as a journalist and seven years as the Editor of Global Excellence Magazine, Kunle Rasheed’s foray into journalism began in 1996, with the defunct Today’s Choice Magazine, where he was a reporter after which he left and joined Marvel Weekly. His journalistic journey also took him to Fame Weekly and City People Magazine, and then Global Excellence. He has the credit of being the pioneer of society writing in newspapers, which later metamorphosed into Happenstances in the The Nation Newspapers. The former Correspondent with The Nation ran the affairs of the news house until he bought over City Rovers Magazine from its original owners. The magazine is set to hit newsstands soon.
