Maktoub is Africa’s leading indigenous business and lifestyle magazine.
We bring into focus and spotlight the people, events and issues that are defining the present and shaping the future of the African continent, innovators, leading entrepreneurs, industry leaders, policy makers and shapers, pacesetters, social influencers and change agents in the dynamic web of business and lifestyle; including technology, entrepreneurship, politics, leadership, investments and culture.
Through our mirroring of the true spirit of African enterprise and resilience while applying our unique and tailored contents and reporting style, we empower our diverse audiences with key knowledge, insights and intelligence to help them make better choices, and – at a higher level – promote social and economic development.
Our niche is in telling compelling stories that resonate with our audiences – whether in the present or as hoped for in the future –, thereby immersing them in the spirit and passion of the stories, events, personalities, vis-à-vis the challenges, lessons, successes, and everything else in-between and thereafter.
Maktoub provides in-depth reporting and overview of topical issues, people, news and events essentially from a uniquely African perspective, presenting the stories to a wide range of audiences in lucid and informative styles.
Our Vision is to be the premium source for Afro-centric business and lifestyle news, information, trends and reports and the intersections on technology, entrepreneurship, politics, leadership, investments and culture.
Our Mission is to be the premier hub for Afro-centric business and lifestyle news, information, trends and reports and the intersections on technology, entrepreneurship, politics, leadership, investments and culture.

In January 2016, Maktoub signed a partnership with Nigeria’s biggest indigenous airline, Arik to become one of the airline’s official in-flight magazines for travellers on both local and international routes.
With the signing, Africa’s leading international news, business and lifestyle magazine, Maktoub joins Arik Airline’s official publication, ‘Wings’ in providing extra reading leisure to Arik’s legion of esteemed passengers flying the airline on all local routes and the New York, London and Johannesburg international routes.
Maktoub’s past issues have had interesting stories, articles and interviews with power people, statesmen, and active proponents for better citizen-responsive government and increased relevance in global politics.
With our wide network spread and unique style, Maktoub guarantees strategic maximum exposure, returns and increased brand value for all advertising or partnering corporates and individuals.
