Jacqueline Nwobu, along with her husband Chike Nwobu, did not have experience with magazine publishing prior to launching their swiftly successful magazine, but they did have a sense that the market needed their vision. While planning their own nuptials, they noticed the lack of resources for African-American brides and other women of color. In came the idea for Munaluchi Bridal magazine.
The bi-annual luxury magazine is carried in the United States, Nigeria and The United Kingdom and is sold in all Target stores – quite a feat for a publication that launched only a year and a half ago.
Here, Nwobu talks about building their brand, the challenges they’ve faced and how they made it all happen.
