The Afropolitan, a magazine that celebrates the rise of a new cosmopolitan African style and sensibility embodying ‘the signature of African sophistication’ is celebrating their 50th edition.
The Afropolitan magazine is a publication that celebrates the identity and growth of the modern, business-savvy and global-thinking Afropolitan. Over the past 49 editions, the magazine has produced powerful and thought-provoking editorial, covering all aspects of a rapidly changing African reality. Through this content and valued partnerships, The Afropolitan has become one of the leading lifestyle and professional publications on the continent.
The success of the magazine is based on innovative leadership and marketing, great writers, blue chip advertisers, multi-dimensional readers and, last but not least, the association with KAYA FM.
In a time where what it means to be an African has never been more topical, the 50th edition of The Afropolitan explores and celebrates a new generation of Afro-preneurs, Afro-losiphers and Afro-magicians – the creative, politically aware, multicultural and ambitious professionals who continue to find new ways to be African. The Afropolitan will continue to be the voice for a generation that is forging new paths.
To mark the 50th edition, The Afropolitan will host the ‘Then and Now Celebration’ to commemorate all of the milestones that have been achieved over the past 10 years and to glimpse into the future of the publication.
Hosted at the exclusive Steyn City Parkland Residence on the 1st of June 2017, the event will be an extravaganza of music, dancing, food, drink and shoulder-rubbing with Jozi’s finest. Our guests, leaders in their fields, can look forward to exciting partner activations with sought after premium brands.
As for the next 50…
“A key focus in celebrating our milestone 50th edition is to stay nimble and responsive to a fast changing media world. While we will always keep our feet on the ground of relevant and inspiring content we will also continues to reach for the stars of a new media universe,” explains Sean Press, Publisher of The Afropolitan.
The Afropolitan’s 50th edition will coincide with the re-launch of the website [www.afropolitan.co.za]. To embrace the opportunity of a truly multiplatform, new media approach, the site will become a content hub that embraces and integrates The Afropolitan’s social media channels. The site will curate inspirational stories, aggregated from our network of thought leaders, amplifying success stories and opening a window to new local trends. Retaining our sophisticated African design, but mixing this with a clean and uncluttered aesthetic, the website will represent the future face of the magazine.
As the voice of a new generation The Afropolitan will continue to be in tune with its growing community of readers and followers, ready to show-case ‘ground breakers’ in culture, technology, lifestyle and business. It is a magazine that lives on the cutting-edge of African thought leadership, and that endeavours to highlight the most powerful and relevant voices of the 4th industrial revolution as it happens.
