Celebrated journalist and media entrepreneur Mike Awoyinfa has explained why he took the decision to rest Entertainment Express, the breezy twice-a-week tabloid he used to publish with his late bosom friend and business partner, Pastor Dimgba Igwe.

He told News Express this afternoon: “We just decided to migrate online. It’s the latest trend globally. It is cheaper and cost-effective.”

Awoyinfa, who scrapped the tabloid shortly after the burial of Igwe, of whom he was the chief mourner, dismissed insinuations in some quarters that he betrayed the man usually referred to as his twin brother.

He said: “We cannot betray Dimgba Igwe because he was part of the decision to migrate into an online platform.”

Entertainment Express is now available only online at
