Dr Precious Moloi-Motsepe, who is the first woman to be on the cover of Forbes Woman Africa said at the unveiling, "By launching Forbes Woman Africa, the magazine and its owners are not only supporting the theme of woman empowerment but have also realised the fundamental truth that there can't be an 'Africa Rising' without woman rising."
"We are excited about this new magazine which will provide a platform for amazing women in Africa doing extraordinary work, be it in the economy, business, politics, art and culture. Forbes Woman Africa is a niche product sorely needed in the African market," said Karima Brown, editor of Forbes Woman Africa.
The event had all in attendance captivated with fashion designer Shweta Wahi and African Fashion International as they showcased their latest designer wear during the fashion show. During the launch of Forbes Woman Africa, the Forbes Africa team surprised guests with the auxiliary launch of the Forbes Life Africa magazine.
Forbes Life Africa opens up a new platform for debate and expression on the rich stories of everything from lifestyle and sports to the arts. From cigar lounges in Nairobi and music for the masses to the millionaire as a consumer, the publication will highlight the continent's wealth, youth, action and vitality.
