Upmarket and highly-publicised Forbes Africa magazine has published its first digital issue last week Thursday 1 March 2013, the magazine project director Sid Wahi revealed this week.
The digital edition is available on Windows 8, Android and iOS platforms in association with Magzter.
Wahi said the new development was in line with the publication’s long-term strategy to make its content ubiquitous and available globally.
“The industry is rapidly changing and adapting to changing media consumption habits is essential in ensuring that our readers can pick their choice of medium to consume our content. We are extremely excited with this initiative,” an elated Wahi said.
Forbes Africa magazine editor-in-chief Chris Bishop said: “We are very pleased that it is finally here, we know we have a good product and this opens it up to a whole new audience which we believe is waiting Forbes Africa.”
The Forbes March edition will feature Christo Wiese, the South African ‘King of Retail’, who is worth $3.7 billion, the editorial management said.
It also includes Uganda’s Sudhir Ruparelia, Africa’s next billionaire, who was a new entry on the Africa’s Top 40 Richest People’ List. The edition will also include Kalusha Bwalya’s opinions on the Africa Cup of Nations tournament, and an interview with Olympic gold medallist Kirsty Coventry in its sports section.
One issue of the magazine will cost 4 USD, and an annual subscription will be taken for 33 USD, Forbes Africa said.
