My music magazine is going to be targeting different
genres such as Hip-Hop, Rap and RnB. The magazine will
be called “Codeine”. My target audience will be both
boys and girls aged 11 to 19 from unemployed to middle
managers in companies who are living to become
innovators. My magazine will come out once every
month so that every time a person buys the magazine
there are new advertisements, interviews with popular
artists and more information on concerts, upcoming
albums and more.
I have chosen to make this type of magazine because this is the
type of magazine that teenagers would want to buy and read.
Teenagers like to see things like posters, information on new
songs or albums and concert information in magazines because
those are things they can go and see, have up on a wall to keep
and things to listen to and having these things in a magazine
makes it more appealing to my target audience.
Potential articles for my magazine would be exclusive interviews
with artists like A$AP Rocky, Juicy J, Alicia Keys, Mary J. Blige
and more artists. There will behind the scenes articles telling
the audience about what goes on behind the scenes of a music
video and there will also be small biographies about how artists
made it into the music industry.
This magazine will be promoting the success of the musicians in
the magazine and will also be promoting the faith and belief in
an individual showing the audience that everything a musician
has done to be successful can be done with the faith and belief
of any individual who wants to make something of their lives
and be known for it and become successful.
On my magazine cover I will have a bright background, a big
bold title that says “Codeine” in capitals. In the centre I will
have an image of a person in sophisticated clothing posing for
the camera. Around the main image of the person I will have
puffs, graphic features, a headline anchorage and a slogan at
the top of the title in smaller writing.
Name: Dolvani Badibake
Interests/Hobbies: I like listening to music such as Hip-Hop, RnB, Rap and Old
Skool music. I play basketball and football. In my spare time I compose beats
on my laptop using FL Studio 10. Some of my favourite artists are Wiz Khalifa,
Nas, Notorious B.I.G, Alicia Keys and Wale.
Ideology: In my mind I value hard work and dedication because that is one
thing I do the most which is work hard and dedicate myself to my work.
Without hard work you would not get anywhere and without dedication you
would not have the willpower to push yourself to become what you want to
be. I believe that if you have a dream to be the richest man in the world or to
be your own boss and own your own business, you should chase that dream
until you make it to where you want to be.
