Ahlan! magazine has welcomed new team member, John Anisiobi, who has joined the celebrity weekly as News Editor. British-born John – who has previously worked as Online Showbiz Editor at the London Evening Standard – will be writing breaking news and celebrity features, relevant to both the UAE and international markets.

“As part of my new role I will be interviewing A-list celebrities and attending the best parties in town for our weekly diary,” says John. “I will also be writing a bi-monthly column called Ahlan! Man, which will see me doing things around the UAE like sky diving, swimming with sharks and checking out new restaurants. For my column I’ll also write about the latest gadgets and must have men’s accessories such as watches, scarfs and other luxury items.”

After just one week in the UAE, John is already finding his feet. “I already feel at home here thanks to the wonderful team at Ahlan! magazine,” he says.  “I was quite nervous about moving from London to the desert as I had never been to the UAE before, but everyone has been really friendly and welcoming, so I’m looking forward to a long stay at the magazine.”
