It’s all started with a movie. Yep a movie. Alright chill!
Eguanimkwu Benjamin is the CEO/Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Orangecityz and Glamcityz (TheCityz).
All the way from Delta state, he was born in Osun state, Nigeria. Sometimes called Ben Orange 🤷♂️.
One thing you’ll always see him do is talking about fashion and trends. In short he is obsessed with fashion and beauty trends.
Orangecityz is an Entertainment website which was created in March 2017. All things here is about “Catching the Fun” (Gist, Scoops and More)
Glamcityz is focused on publishing the best color and fashion, beauty and wedding trend sources on the internet, our aim is to inspire our readers with our color and trend directions exclusively prepared for each season. Everything “Beauty on Fleek”
How did it start?
Visiting your friends is a normal thing as a child, running helter-skelter, playing in the rain and other things that kept us busy was major, as we don’t even bother what’s going on around us. Unlike now, there was no time for TV, your entertainment was outside (the street before/after yours). Well, once you have the opportunity to sit in front of a TV, mehn! there no leaving, you’ll watch all cartoons “watch-able,” till your dad comes in and change the station just for news. Urgh!! 😩
It amazing how movies make you loose track of time and how you don’t even feel bothered caz what you’re watching is interesting and funny.
Even with the hard times in this country, we know how to catch fun as we always make a joke out of everything happening around us. That how we forget the annoying issues we’re facing for some while.
I’ve always wanted to make people enjoy their time, and entertainment is one way to do so. Well, that how Orangecityz came to me.
The name Orangecityz was inspired by a 2002 American comedy movie, Orange County. (Even though I only saw one episode 🤷♂️).
As the journey continued, I realised I was really interested in fashion and I’d go to instagram and search on Fashion trends to see amazing fashion styles and gorgeous makeup on some faces.
I wondered how I could also write about fashion then I came across my favourite writer, Jennifer Uche Pedro. To cut the story short, she is the founder of BellaNaija. Most people don’t know her by name, as many content creators are obsessed with Linda Ikeji. But it’s amazing to see how she write content on fashion entertainment and even weddings.
I became so curious and wanted to do things like she does and that’s how TheCityz expanded from Orangecityz to Glamcityz, which was created a year and few months after Orangecityz was created (December 21st 2018).
Well, Orangecityz & Glamcityz is still growing as it’s yet to reach it’s peak.
In 2019, Glamcityz.com was rated among the Top 100 Fashion Website on the planet and also Top 25 Fashion website in Nigeria by FeedSpot
And in 2020, we started releasing our own Monthly digital magazine covers for each month as we gathered amazing models and friends to showcase their style. On Glamcityz, every style matters.
Though it’s not easy but as time pass by, we’re happy to see our readers engage with our content and we openly accept ideas from different individuals.
