After a duration of 17 years, Paper Magazine’s “Beautiful People” feature finally features an African city – this time, with the help of Blay Digital Media, launching a list of the movers and shakers in Lagos.
The feature was compiled by the founder of Blay Digital Media, Zandile Blay, who moved to Lagos to launch HELLO! Nigeria, as well as Mickey Boardman, who the Editorial Director of Paper, who also attended Lagos Fashion and Design Week late last year and would’ve seen the many up and coming and of-the-moment talents living in the city.
Together, Blay and Paper curated a group of influencers in music, fashion and entertainment in Lagos, including Zara Okpara, Maki Oh, Chin Okeke, Eku Edewor, Don T and others, who all made the list alongside the Las Gidi’s prolific photographers, Kelechi Amadi-Obi (founder of Nigeria’s Mania Magazine), Lakin Ogunbanwo (whose work has caught the eyes of media powerhouses such as CNN and Vogue Italia), and Nick Hagen.
