Editor's Welcome

I can't begin to tell you just how excited i am to introduce to Nigeria - H I L M A! A new and vibrant community based cosmopolitan magazine where we share culture, lifestyle, travel and a host of interests within and outside our community.


We aim to showcase people, some of whom are friends at home and in diaspora; places and destinations that we know will interest our readers. We are passionate to connect with, and tell the stories of people from every corner of society far and near.  


In these times of uncertainties within the changing world around us, we believe H I L M A's birth is timely in reaching out, by delivering a publication that connect people and tell their stories.

H I L M A seeks to engage across generations, nationalities, race and creed. We will advocate across all spectrum of society; be it welfare of the child, budding entrepreneurs of every description, trendsetters, leisure pursuits, travel and lifestyle in general. While technology efficiently delivers news stories to our desktops, laptops and mobile devices, magazines are all about context - how ideas and images are presented in relation to one another and within a larger point of view. Magazines are about trust and partnership: As, Editor, I will strive always to keep you engaged; you, the readers, are free to engage with us.


In this Pilot issue, we have headlined with a British/Jamaican, who we described as an 'Adventurer' ; I am sure you will marvel at her travel exploits and admire her passion to travel the world.


We have an article from an expert in child development, dealing with our 'Special Needs Children'. I am sure the information contained therin will be of interest to all.


Also, in this issue, we have profiled successful women at the top of their games; capturing their strengths professionally and personally, while at the same time delighting in the pleasures and ironies of their rise to success.


COVID-19 - fatigue, let us spark your curiosity digitally.


Let us show you where to go in Abuja for an evening on the town or just where to hang-out with friends.


To our readers, we bid you welcome and sincerely hope you enjoy the pilot issue of H I L M A Magazine. Stay with us - and expect more!

Featured Lebanese Artist 


''...a painful reality''  (Quoted from "Al Ahkbar" newspaper)

H I L M A is extremely happy to have Raida Mourad Al Solh, a very talented theoretical Lebanese artist featured on here! Her work borders on the use of unusual mediums to achieve her concepts making her artistic style very unique.

Her art style ranges from metamorphism art to, acrylic on canvas where she seems to have a penchant for painting supreme beings spawn from personal spiritual experiences she has had in the past, some of which, in their intensity, is clearly portrayed sometimes in her work and art style. 

We are proud to feature her on here as a teaser on the H I L M A website. Please visit her website to see more of her amazing art style and read more about this remarkable Lebanese woman. www.raidamouradartist.com

"S E N S E I  E D I T" on HILMA 

D I G I T A L  S E N S E I  E D I T - A visual story using real life footage of different places and scenes collated from "Artgrid footage". This was put together by a Digital sensei for fun and pleasure, end result is quite interesting.

The story he is trying to depict is of a man in a hurry to get back home to a woman he loves, from a trip abroad. This collation of appropriate visuals is quite artistic, in the way it is put together to tell this story.

This Digital Sensei seems to have a talent for cinematography, creating his own footage from different parts of the world is something he should consider. We are quite happy to feature this little snippet reel on H I L M A
