C. Hub so far with friends like you.

Dear friends,
It has been a very interesting time for C. Hub magazine. A new baby in the vast and stiff competitive media market. Fortunately we are optimistic and the sky is looking up on us. The team at C. Hub have been working so hard to make sure we keep the high standard that we have set.
Our first issue was and still is the talk of the town, we had everyone looking to have a sneak into the issue with the graceful cover image photographed by Subysinem, it was the bomb!

C. Hub issue 1
We are delighted to let you know that we had over 1000 on line hit with this issue and lots of words of encouragement have been sent to us. On face book we have been able to reach our first month target of 100 likes and now we have set another target of 500 before Xmas. To us this is a huge progress. On sales we have had a massive result both here in the UK and in Nigeria and now we are looking to expand into other parts of Africa including  Kenya, Ghana and South Africa.
C.Hub issue 2
Most amazingly, we have kept to our promise of getting you much loaded issue for the second time running.

This time we have covered on travel, home, food, health, fashion, creative lounge, money sense, features and more. We are proud to tell you that our cover icon this issue is Liz Ogumbo who is an epitome of what a strong bold woman should be. She has re-invented the modest woman and we have not left any story untold. Exclusively speaking to us, Liz has let us tell you of her 3 days wedding in 3 venues and we think her latest collection La romance d'ete has been inspired by this Prince charming who has been so lucky to grab her soul forever. But is that what Liz believes? You have to find out for yourself.

Social media have become a very important part of business and we have spoken to one of Britain's social media millionaires and you will find out how he did it only in C. Hub magazine issue 2. Also we were at Beffta awards, NEL awards, Jewish world jamboree and Irockuk's tribes of Africa fashion event. There is so much more to discover inside C. Hub issue two as you can see.
