Bustline Media's Diamond Special Recognition Awards Worldwide is a global awards project that celebrates people who are passionate about charity and empowerment, who are behind amazing success stories and who themselves have made positive impacts in the community they live in, but remain unsung. The awards' mission is to bring these people to the front row, applaud them, and also encourage them to empower the next generation.
The company's other projects are:
'The Twins' Concert UK' : A celebration of the unique talents of twins and multiple births across all races.
'The Royal Awards': A celebration of Africans Blue Blood.
'Indigenous Music Awards' : Created to celebrate and honour Indigenous Musicians across Africa.

She started off her writing career with a News Magazine based in Jos, Plateau State, Nigeria called THE EDITOR in 1989. She later joined Nigerian Standard Newspapers by Plateau Publishing Company in Jos shortly after.
Whilst studying in Jos, she created her popular column, BUSTLINE which earned her fame over the years because of its honest, down-to-earth and unusual approach to various relationships topics.
In 1995, she was invited by the Master of Nigerian romance journalism, Mr. Kayode Ajala to join HEARTS MAGAZINE, a celebrated romance journal. She thereafter worked with SWEETHEARTS magazine, SWEETDREAMS magazine (both romance journals).

Still in 1997, Mr. Mayor Akinpelu started his magazine GLOBAL EXCELLENCE, and made Yetunde his first Woman Editor.

In 2005, she was invited by Mr. Seye Kehinde, the publisher of CITYPEOPLE magazine and Chairman of CITY PEOPLE GROUP to contribute her column BUSTLINE to the largest circulating soft sell in Africa.
Aside being witty with words, she also has an undying love for acting, which she considers her first love – she has featured in some Nigerian movies/series/sitcoms both in Nigeria and the UK. She is also a seasoned script writer and has written various movie scripts.
She holds various aces in artiste marketing and packaging. She scored a first by creating Diamond Special Recognition Awards Worldwide in 2011, a global awards ceremony that travels around the world to recognise unsung achievers as well as the celebrated.
