Carob Magazine Africa (HOI MEDIA)

What does your company do?

Carob Magazine Africa is a digital publication that profiles Africa's most influential people of our time. We find inspirational people who have extraordinary business stories all across Africa and share it in our platform.

What is your biggest success?

We have done advertising campaigns for reputable brands fir both private and public companies. We have profiled so many influential Africans since inception. Example Dr. Collen Mashawana, Dr. Sindy Zemura, Nadia Ahmed Abdalla, Dj Black Coffee, Yvette Gayle, Miss Lira, Sonia Booth, Malusi Gigaba, Simphiwe Masiza of Empowaworx etc..We have gained a following of over 50k influential Africans who are mainly decision makers in their industries across Africa.

What has been your biggest hurdle?

Accessing funds. As much as we've been able to run the publication for over 10 years from the advertising revenue, we would like to get funds to speed up the growth of our publication. We would like to permanently employ more creatives in our business so that we can continue to impact people's lives in a more meaningful way.
