Apologies if some of you already know about this but I’ve only just come across this news.
The Voice reports that popular celebrity gossip magazine OK! will launch in Nigeria. According to columinist/influential industry figure Jasmine Dotiwala ‘OK! Magazine Nigeria will be owned and operated by famed entrepreneur Alexander Amosu (never heard of him). It will be a monthly publication and the content will include news on internationally known Nigerian stars, local Nigerian stars, African-American celebs and more’.
Alexander told Jasmine,
“Nigeria’s probably one of the most vibrant, affluent countries in Africa – a nation with this juxtaposition of poverty and immense wealth. Nigeria is a style leader for Africa that continues to shine despite hardships and negativity that try to mar its progress.
“I’m honoured to bring OK! Magazine to Nigeria and I am convinced that the publication will enjoy great success.”
He also told me about the endless opportunities for the magazine, which will enjoy sharing news of the world’s fast growing entertainment industry, from Nollywood stars, to the plethora of singing talent currently coming out of the country.
“Worldwide, there is love for what comes out of Nigeria, from the movies to the music. What better way to showcase this positivity and share it with the rest of the world?”
OK! Magazine Nigeria is set to launch in June 2011.
Best of luck Alexander.
