Every week in March, BellaNaija Style will host relevant, thought-provoking conversations with African female industry leaders in the fashion, beauty and media space on @bellanaijastyle‘s Instagram Live. So mark your calendars for the ultimate #BNSConvos!
Our reliance on social media has grown over the last ten years, whether it is used for keeping up with loved ones, listening to music, getting inspiration, or simply having a good laugh. Due to this and many other factors including the 2020 pandemic, there has been a spike in influencer marketing. So much so that the space is forming its own integral part of the economic sector. In fact, a survey by www.influencermarketinghub.com estimates that influencer marketing will be worth about $16.4 Billion in 2022.
We’ve pulled together three of the biggest influencers on the continent who grew from zero followers to having massive platforms and scoring the best influencer marketing deals to discuss how they have navigated the space over the years and how to turn social media fame into success IRL.
