Bang! is Tanzania’s first lifestyle magazine. Nine years ago, without any experience in journalism, Tanzania’s Emelda Mwamanga started her country’s first lifestyle publication, Bang! magazine, which now also reaches audiences in neighbouring Uganda, Kenya and Zambia.
She had returned home from South Africa shortly after completing a degree in Industrial, Organisational and Labour Studies at the University of Cape Town, and was working as a human resource officer for Coca Cola when she decided to publish her magazine on the side.
