On 28 July, Glam Africa Magazine hosted an intimate gathering with celebrities, industry leaders and influencers at Villa Monticello Hotel for the Africa Rising Breakfast Party. The event was held to launch their newest magazine edition coined “Africa Rising” which celebrates individuals who are single-handedly shaping Africa’s narrative.

The event kicked off with a cocktail hour, sponsored by Moet &Chandon, where guests enjoyed bottomless mimosas. The breakfast started with an introduction by PR Representative, Lakeshia Marie, who hosted the conversation on how the attendees are currently changing the narratives of Africa. CEO of Skin Gourmet, a natural skin care line sourced and made in Ghana, Violet AwoAmoabeng spearheaded the conversation about her holistic approach to creating beauty products. Afua Osei of She Leads Africa shared how her platform offers resources and empowers over 500 thousand African women entrepreneurs to succeed in business. The conversation also highlighted tech pioneers of Mazumma, a mobile payment company, who built Ghana’s first cryptocurrency using artificial intelligence and blockchain. The group was recently listed as part of the 2018 Forbes Africa 30 under 30 cohorts. Singer and activists Deborah Vanessa charged the audience to rethink using plastic as she talked about her #BanPlasticgh campaign. Along with practical measures, she is using music and art to spread the message of creating a cleaner Ghana.

Other guests and celebrities in attendance included Will Smith’s Chef, Cynthia Chea Pean, recording artists Amaarae, actress Zynnell Zuh, international model Victoria Michaels, actress Salma Mumin and more.

Glam Africa Magazine debuted the Glam Africa Beauty Box, a free box of beauty products that comes with a yearly subscription to the magazine. It is the first of its kind in Ghana and includes products from Kaeme, Colorbox Cosmetics and Skin Gourmet to name a few.
