The name Zari is not as common as John or Michael and that is how the magazine passes to becalled ZARI otherwise had it been called either of the above names, then it would sound like all John's and Michael's own it.
Since Zari is her name, some critics were quick to ask whether this is another avenue to talk about herself, but the socialite was quick to say that: "It's not about me, Its a public magazine, It will have nothing about "Zari" except the name which is the brand, even the cover page models won't be me."
Through her wall, Zari was inviting for ideas on what to feature in the magazine and this was one of the responses: "There should be a kids corner and something that addresses the community instead of having skimpy dressed use women, you should highlight issues like domestic violence, ritual murders, corruption, poor road network, the decreasing reading culture and if possible help or partner with some rural community libraries so that they can implement their plans, adult literacy etc."
The African Woman Magazine was one of the best magazines in town but now that it's off the news stands, we only hope the ZARI magazine will be able to bridge the gap now that Sylvia and Zari are close buddies.
This year has seen Zari do more of investing starting with Zari Jewels, The Renaissance Man (Men's Suits) and now the ZARI Magazine with its inaugural issue expected in March 2013.
