Guardian Life’s Chidera Muoka Makes #YNaijaPowerList for Media
Guardian Life’s editor, Chidera Muoka has been listed in the 2018 edition of the #YNaijaPowerList for Media – “a roll call of the most powerful Nigerian influencers under the age of 40.”
The list recognises policymakers, decision-makers, change agents, and influencers breaking boundaries in Nigeria.
Muoka took over Guardian Life about three years ago. Since then, the magazine has become the go-to magazine for entertainment lovers. Often described as a breath of fresh air, Guardian Life, the weekly magazine insert of the prestigious Guardian Nigeria Newspaper, continues to lead as that which touches on crucial issues which continues to challenge the traditional norms of the society.
This, the Powerlist list affirms by noting:
Since Chidera Muoka took over editing duties at Guardian Life, the trendy weekly pull-out has reclaimed its status as the magazine of record for generation Z. The Guardian newspapers has been working to shed some of the stuffiness that has characterised its presentation over the years. The decision to hire younger, edgier talent to realise this goal proved to be a smart one as Muoka – under the umbrella of the Ventra Media Group – has repositioned Guardian Life through buzzy cover stories, trendy profiles and attention-grabbing photo shoots.
The proud feminist speaking on the achievement said:
“I am grateful for the recognition which goes on to show that I am contributing my quota to ensuring that the much-desired positive change we seek starts from us.”
Others included in the list are: Toyosi Ogunseye, Damilola Odufuwa, Muyiwa Matuluko, Sonia Irabor, Instablog9ja, Mercy Abang and Hannah Ojo.
