Our partner – OK! Pakistan 

OK! Pakistan is a glossy monthly magazine covering both Pakistani and international celebrity news. It launched in April 2014 and is targeted at both a domestic readership and Pakistani ex-patriots around the world. Its first cover star was the late Benazir Bhutto, who served as Prime Minister of Pakistan from 1988 to 1990 and again from 1993 to 1996 and who was the first woman to head a democratic government in a Muslim majority nation. The magazine is proud to have a predominantly female editorial team.
