After weeks of discussion on a media deal based on mutual promotion and content sharing, the management of Alutanews.com, The Entrepreneur Magazine, Zzini Media, and Alexreports finally put pen to paper on a media deal that will see the media platforms collaborate for wider reach.
This event took place yesterday, January 18, 2017 at the Victoria Island Headquarters of Zzini Media. Alutanews is an online campus newspaper founded by the legal practitioner and media entrepreneur, Barr. David Agu (who is also the CEO of The Entrepreneur Magazine), while Zzini media is a general media and entertainment outfit owned by the CEO of Tetrazini Fast-food, Mr Donatus Okonkwo. And Alexreports, on the other hand, is a celebrity and fashion blog founded by the award-winning Abuja #1 social media reporter, Alex Nwankwo.
Speaking during the signing of the partnership, Barr David Agu expressed optimism that the deal will have positive effects for Alutanews. “We want Alutanews.com to reach out to every Nigerian student wherever they are, and to be a platform that helps them fight management opression across institutions, and we’re positive this deal will go a long way in to help us achieve that”, he said. On his own part, Alex Nwankwo, who doubles both as the head of Alexreports and manager of Zzini media, had this to say, “This deal is happening at a good time…just as Zzini Media is about to roll out its projects for 2017. Furthermore, Alexreports has established itself as a major platform in the Nigerian blogosphere, and Alutanews has the Nigerian campus community covered, so this deal will see us achieve much more in our various areas of focus, and together we hope to make great impacts in major events that affect Nigerians.
