    1. The magazine missed its selling point. It should have been more of a manual on building bombs, last minute prayers before sending infidels to hell, how to sleep with camels and still be a man. Journalism in northern Nigeria should know all this.

  9. Mr Anonymous the mag is actually free, not everything is about money, this am sure is an initiative to do something differently for the right reasons, we can't deny that the Northerners despite general opinion have content and are wonderful people. Besides it is a business and Lifestyle mag, is it few pages that makes a mag, kai when it hits the news stands findout if it is for sale or not..

    1. No one has general opinion. Rapping male children under your care and sodomising dogs is not general opinion. That's called reality or a normal day for a northern man. Free or not the northern Nigeria and poverty go hand in hand.
      Northern Nigeria is forever grounded to underdevelopment bcos of the slavish and retrogressive religion called Islam

  12. Maktoub is not about religion or terrorism, in as much as we hear of all the hateful things "northerners" have done and all, we shouldnt generalise and classify them all in that light, and that is what i believe maktoub is trying to achieve, at some point in our lives we all must have had something to do with a northerner and am sure they ddnt cut your head off or rape you or whatever doggy is saying, Mr Doggy you are just preaching hatye, what makes you any better than the boko haram pple, anyways i believe if we portray the benefits of education and achievements of hardwork attained by northerners, it will inspire more of them to embrace positivity...
