SAGE is a lifestyle magazine that focuses on business, leisure and art. The arts have traditionally received little or no coverage in Kenyan business oriented mainstream media. A key objective of Sage is to equip Kenyan artistes (actors, musicians, writers, poets, photographers, cartoonists, sculptors, painters among others) with business skills to help them live off their craft.
In this month of love, Sage reflects on the cost of finally saying ‘I Do’ to the one you love. Weddings have changed beyond recognition and are now productions, complete with film crews, props and a supporting cast of caterers, photographers, transport managers, hair and make-up artists, décor specialists, MCs, DJs and security guards among others, all coordinated by another specialist called a wedding planner.
We bring you a comprehensive report on how the industry is changing, trends to look out for in 2017 and the ways in which savvy but cash strapped brides are cutting corners in an effort to get the best wedding they can afford. This issue also features football legend Joe Kadenge and Kithaka wa Mberia, one of Kenya’s most successful authors, who shares tips on how to make money from books. Our finance writer shows you how to invest offshore. Along with that is our usual sprinkling of articles on career, innovation, fashion, style, décor, motoring, travel and food.
