“We probably will be kicking several butts with this year’s 100 most influential for all the good and well, bad reasons for some. They are not the usual names you’ve always seen.

Recognizing the importance of creativity, coupled with the power of social media, you can no longer put people in just one box and define them. More and more people are now thinking and living outside the long familiar definition, and they’re out influencing their circle with their own unchecked imaginations.

These are the people challenging what you’ve known for ages, challenging the stereotypes, challenging the norms and creating their own reality . Their reality which resonates with the needs of people around them. They’re the new leaders of our time, the influencers.
Years back if you heard ‘influential’ , you probably would start listing all the media famous names and ‘world leaders’, – position or status leaders. One good thing about this era is, such definitions of influence are being challenged.

C. Hub magazine understands the principles of maximising smallness and the principles of authenticity, creativity and vision , and has tailored this year’s most influential again based on the fact that these individuals are maximising resources around them to create powerful ripple effects that are changing lives, using the power of their gifting , vision and creativity . This however is an inexhaustible list as we continue to research to update the list of those influencing our time. Power to your imagination. Meet your 2016 most influential creatives as compiled by us and our contributors .

Feel free to send us your creative influencers too. All relevant suggestions will be published on our next listing. Email me , editor@fauntee.com or tweet your views to @C_hubmagazine #CHUB100Mostinfluential

Come out of the box, and let your imagination take the lead and #Keepwalking.”

The magazine will be available in both app and print editions from Monday 11th April, 2016 on www.chubmagazine.com

A US – Senegalese Rapper is not only continuously uplifting people with his music but also walking walk by opening doors of opportunity in America and Africa.

Tell me, there are billions of reasons why people love Serena Williams but none is as powerful and enduring to my heart and mind than her drive to change the face of tennis forever. She has the credibility, motivated,energized and committed. She inspired my generation, and next generation with her talent. Kudos to her! As the world No.1 who cherishes her roots and proud of her heritage, she is not only motivating Africans but building schools such as Serena Williams Secondary school in Matooni, Kenya. On the latest row, Serena frowns at Novak Djokovic urging him to explain why male player deserved more money than their female counterparts. Serena continues to have positive influence on women and men throughout the whole world and she is admired for her talent and courage.


A city girl with her mega bucks left her juicy career as lawyer to start her own business. In 2010 Dupsy founded ‘Intern Avenue’ “to give young people more opportunities to understand what might be a good fit for them and to empower employers not to be a slave to the system.” In her word: “I won’t pretend that it wasn’t a big decision” The ability and willing to change a life is what counts in leadership. Taking responsibility for the quality of leadership people experience regardless of your status, age, sex and race is what inspires people to follow a leader.
