With its mission of pioneering a definitive innovative genre in the publishing space, Elegant Flix, an online 3D magazine which covers interests surrounding lifestyle, entertainment, business, politics, sports has finally taken off.
In this interview with, Austin Ajayi, publisher and an award – winning international Nollywood actress, (Queen of the Red Carpet), HRM, Florence Okonkwo bares her mind on the international online magazine.
Congratulations Queen Florence, l am sure you are very proud with what you have achieved particularly with the berthing of e- Elegant Flix Magazine in the United Kingdom, few weeks ago.
Our readers would want to know, how you came about the idea of publishing an e-magazine and what readers should expect?
Thank you very much, yes! l am indeed very proud not only for this dream that came true but also as a proud Nigerian woman doing great things outside and within the shores of Nigeria.
I have been in UK for sometime now. I’m a Nollywood actress, an award winning Queen of Nollywood in the UK; it has always been my dream to showcase talents, cultures, celebrities, traditions of people and countries around the the globe and one way I think I can do all these is to document it through a unique magazine.
The magazine was recently launched in the United Kingdom. Your maiden edition showcased more of pictures of celebrities; are you going to be celebrating people alone?
No, it’s not going to be people alone, as I said, we will celebrate cultures, traditions, organizations and achievements of the unknown person but most importantly, the rich cultural heritage of Nigeria, African countries and other countries of the world.
The e- magazine is basically to inform, entertain, educate, having no barrier of age, tribe, race, ethnicity, and being made available to all to enjoy.
The bimonthly 3D magazine is targeted to be a reader’s delight and satisfaction, creating that sublime emotional connectivity between the reader and publisher.
Therefore, as a pioneering e-magazine publisher, we are human-centered and as such user-focused, with our interactive flippable 3D pages, we give you a sense of tangibility to the magazine.
It is a unique digital experience that allows you to flip the pages of the magazine with a swipe and watch the page literally flip in the expected direction.
It is a fun and highly responsive feature that makes for a somewhat traditional reading experience— from the turning of a page to the slosh sound of actually flipping a page.
How were you able to assemble your team for this innovative 3D e- magazine?
I am the vision carrier. I searched for who understands my vision and l was able reach out to people, high profile people. The executives, reporters and brand ambassadors of the magazine proudly supported by NOIRETV are persons of high moral standards who have distinguished themselves over the years both in their private and public lives.
They include Prof. Dr. Pauline Long (Brand Ambassador); High Chief Richmond MacGrey, (Brand Ambassador); Chief Bimbo Roberts Folayan(Ambassador);
Malachi Okonkwo(Brand Ambassador)Mayor Olalekan A. Ajibola(Executive); Chief Ejezie Emeka Rollas (Ambassador); Amb Yvette Philbert (Executive)Chief Agility Onwurah (Executive ) and Austin Ajayi (President).
With these high profile people working together, I assure you that each edition will be mind blowing.
