Sleek Weekly, a Nigerian lifestyle and entertainment magazine has launched its operations in Ghana which would see more content from the country in the publication, which is circulated in 27 other African countries as well as the UK, Canada and US.

The mid-July edition which is expected to hit the shelves on Tuesday, July 19 focuses on Ghana’s biggest talent exports with Ghanaian sex symbol, TV personality and actor Chris Attoh as the main star on the cover.  Joining him is the controversial, and out spoken owner of Aphrodisiac Nightclub and evicted housemate in the ongoing Big Brother Amplified reality TV show, Confidence Haugen.

Other features in the latest edition include a celebrity battle between football stars JJ Okocha and Nwankwo Kanu; interior designer Keisha Umoren; hot events across Africa; entertainment gist, among others.

According to Symon Adeji, CEO and strategic director of Sleek Media International, the magazine hopes to catch this consumer wave by becoming the first pan African weekly fashion and lifestyle magazine.  He said the magazine would use a multi-level marketing strategy for all of Africa, and would operate virtual offices in Angola, Kenya, South Africa and Ghana. It would also establish sales points in these countries.

“We believe in taking big risks as the compensation equals the risk. However, we are operating on the timetable of our business expansion strategyOur projected readership for SleekWeekly is 850,000 copies within 10 months,” Adeji said.

SleekWeekly was first published as Sleek, a bi-monthly magazine, in 2005. It was revamped in 2009 and became a weekly in November last year. It now provides 44 glossy pages of lifestyle content, focusing on high-end luxury services and products. Adeji says it links “the artistry of Africa with the creativity of the West in a manner that has never been done before.”

Sleek Media International is a publishing, media consulting and PR Company, based in Lagos and New York, with an expansion plan rooted in a realization that there was a huge interest in Nigeria across Africa, partly because of the vibrant music scene and also because of Nollywood’s success in making films for the masses.

“We discovered that the rest of Africa wants to know what is going on in Nigeria,” Adeji said. He also referred to the rise of the middle class as another factor influencing the decision to move beyond Nigeria.

Kira Forex: The Ghanaian woman setting the pace in the Forex Trading business

Published

on

The advent of new media and digital money-making platforms has provided a plethora of opportunities for people to earn money and transform their life stories through legitimately acquired wealth and affluence.

One such life-changing and lucrative opportunity presented by new media is the forex trading business, which has surged in the past decade, leading to the creation of millions of new millionaires and billionaires worldwide.

Forex Trading is essentially the art of studying the global currency market and leveraging information about currency rates to buy and exchange currencies on a forex marketing platform.

The popularity of Forex Trading has soared in the country over the past half-decade, with several Ghanaians studying currency trends and making significant financial gains from it. However, only one name stands out in the business.

Amid the growing interest in the Forex Trading business in the country, only one name has emerged as the pioneer and pacesetter: Lamidi Sikira, better known by her brand name, “Kira Forex.”

Just as Yaa Asantewaa is synonymous with feminine bravery in Ghana, Kira Forex has become the prime face of Ghanaian and African excellence in the forex trading business.

With over ten years of experience, Kira Forex has rightfully earned the reputation of a forex trading luminary, with several awards in Ghana and across the continent validating her position as one of Africa’s leading forex traders.

Her success in the field is so profound that she revealed in 2023 that she turned down a $20,000-a-month job to continue leading the pack in the forex trading industry.

A trait of Kira Forex that endears her to many Ghanaians is her selflessness and willingness to guide others, particularly Ghanaian women, out of poverty. Having established herself in the field, Kira Forex founded the Kira Forex Academy with the goal of enlightening Ghanaians, especially women, about the forex trading industry, enabling them to earn money from the comfort of their homes.

A staunch advocate for the independence and growth of women, Kira Forex believes that financial freedom is the most crucial condition for independence and is thus leading many Ghanaian women on the path to financial freedom and wealth.

She also established the Kira Foundation, a Non-Governmental Organization committed to enlightening, enriching, and empowering individuals in Ghana and across Africa. Through this foundation, she actively supports programs and social causes aimed at improving the lives of youths and the elderly, exemplifying her commitment to serving humanity.

Her outstanding work as a Forex Trader and philanthropist has earned her several awards, including Most Influential Trader and Best Forex Trader in Singapore, Outstanding Service Award in Nigeria, Africa’s Under 40 CEOs Award in Uganda, and Best Female Forex Trader of the Year in South Africa, among others.
