December 2015 saw the launch of BOLD Magazine’s captivating debut issue with talented TV personality Stephanie Coker as its cover girl. Now following on from a great issue, BOLD returns with their 2.0 edition.
It is no secret that the Web is the new cool, especially as social media is in the forefront of it all. The digital sphere has grown rapidly since the days of MSN/Yahoo chat and MySpace. Platforms such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter are now taking over and are the go-to’s for news, gossip, fashion, style inspirations and even real-life stories. In this new issue of BOLD, they highlight all of that and more.
Featuring three of Nigeria’s most prominent rising social media stars; Zina, Bizzle and Dodos as the cover personalities, they take us into their world of what it’s like being the forces that are influencing the “next gen.” of Nigerian youth, and the overall youth culture; in their respective fields.
Young promising writer, Seyi Fajemirokun breaks down a story that shook up social media, shedding light on a topic not often spoken about or hardly mentioned in Nigeria/Africa – RAPE, in a feature aptly titled “the girl who cried rape”.
