Afrluencer Magazine is not just going to print ( and also maintaining the digital copies…so your subscriptions are safe!), we are introducing the African Influencer Awards.
Publishers of the local lifestyle magazine, Afrluent Media have decided to broaden the offer to more than just advertising. We are giving entrepreneurs, influences and business people an opportunity to be honoured for the work they do.
This event (African Influencer Awards) is the first of its kind in the country and the organisers of the function have set it up to be held annually. The team is taking a more comprehensive look at recognising excellence within various local industries. Through awarding activities that have been at the core of brand building in 2021, we want to encourage more consumption and support of local brands.
We are teaming up with corporates and private investors for a night of HONOURING, networking and creating an environment for influencers to be recognised for their excellenceNicolette Mdhluli
