Dotun Akande, Femi Jacobs Cover Pride Magazine Inspiration Issue


Banker turned Speech Therapist as a result of passion and mother’s love, Dotun Akande, founder of Patrick Speech and Language Centre is the cover of Pride magazine’s Inspiration Edition. For Dotun Akande, an autistic child is like a rose wrapped up, one has to carefully unwrap to see the beauty and enjoy its fragrance.

Every child who goes through Patrick’s is treated as such and when the beauty is finally glaring to all, Dotun gets to squeal with delight and shed tears of joy. The 46 years old mother of 3 sure tells us how she makes sweet honey-spiced lemonade from lemons, about her staying power and demystifying autism. She is such an inspiration, her grits and courage won her the Vlisco Woman of the Year 2015.

On ManPride Cover is Femi Jacobs who is in love with Mr. M and aspires

to be like him, he talks about his many arts, his faith, his dreams and finding Mrs. M. The charming actor also paired up with Funmike Olayera in a fun boy meets girl themed shoot as styled by Mimi Lee.
