By Niyi Tabiti  Most people love to own their own magazine publishing company but many fail to plan well from the start. Just like every business, the media has its vast opportunities but it comes with a lot of commitment.   gistmaster know a lot of people who want to be publishers just because they saw Ovation magazine. Instead of bringing new things, they just want to copy what Dele Momodu has done with Ovation. Unknown to them, the reason Ovation magazine became an household name was because Dele Momodu was very creative.I see a lot of 'Jagbajantis' on vendors stand and i can tell that they are imitations. This is what is happening on Nigeria blog ville too! Most people want to do what you do. My question is-do we all have to write about entertainment? The answer is NO! There are other lucrative areas and no one is looking there. Contact - Any newspaper or magazine publication depend on contacts. Whether weekly, monthly or daily publication, you need a network of informe


By Niyi Tabiti Mercy Johnson and Prince Odinaose Okojie finally got married at the Christ Embassy, Ikeja, today in Lagos. The actress whose wedding have been the topic of discussion in social circuit because of allegations that her man was (is) still married to another woman, Lovelyn Okojie stormed the church in a glittering Limousine vehicle with her father. The security situation at the Church is so tight that so many people were not allowed into the church. Gistmaster sources said the amount used on security is so enormous just to forestall the breakdown of peace and order by those against the wedding.  Mercy Johnson's wedding make up was done by Unveil Make Up company


The most talked about wedding of 2011 is finally here. Not even the weddings of some children of billionaires have the kind of media interest that the one of actress Mercy Johnson and her man, Prince Odinaose Okojie have generated.   The traditional wedding has taken place. Mercy look stunning in this picture. Mercy and her husband got married with heavy security measures put in place. "Bet you can't count the number of bouncers following them" , disclosed a source.  Since the official announcement that Mercy Johnson would be getting married, people started writing to congratulate her until news broke that the man is still married and has two kids. A lot of people, especially women advised Mercy to stop the wedding.   We look forward to getting more photos from the 'trial of love' wedding today.
