How do you manage your artistic and entrepreneur side at the same time?
It’s a good question! Well, actually I started to manage other artists many years ago, when I was performing at the city concerts and festivals, the organizers always asked me to help and support with management so I’ve got used to it and later on developed this professional skills of people management as well as self-awareness and discipline. Without discipline and of course passion in what you doing its almost impossible to succeed!
One of your biggest projects is your events and entertainment agency “AnaZim Project” based in Dubai. How did you come with the idea of it?
First of all, I always have been in this entertainment business so after coming to Dubai it was not even question what I will do here! Second, I already knew many musicians and artists in Dubai to star with booking them to the hotels.
Then everything fall into places by itself with passion and enjoyments and now I am very grateful to all who involved in it for what I succeed to achieve.
If you were an advertisement, which would your slogan be?

As the CEO of your own business in the event planning industry, how do you manage a project from when you make the first contact with a client until you planned the whole event?
Mainly we supply artists to the 5-4 stars hotels, however sometime doing a big events – well, I am having meetings across Dubai area with the potential clients then proposing one or the other suitable profiles and then making an audition for the artists, then signing the contract and then executing performances/events/functions etc..
Dubai is known for all the growing businesses so as a fast rising entrepreneur there are more or less opportunities in your field?
Yes, Dubai it’s a global hub for the international businesses and local government successfully supporting and enhancing this ambiance. Also, the main business for Dubai it’s a tourism business with hundreds of amazing hotels, restaurants, beach activities which gives my agency a plenty of choices and business opportunities! Actually, in Dubai there is a place to earn money for everyone, only depend on person’s actions and communications as well as expertise in what he/she doing.

We know that you’re also coming with your latest single “The One”. Can you tell us the story behind it? And when it’s released?
Yes, that’s right, I created this song after being inspired by the story about one guy, who is absolutely matched my “kinda guy” to be with!
I never met him in the real life but all what I heard about him from my friends amazed me and made me feel romantic and vulnerable! I went for a quick run around Dubai Harbor area and when I reached back home I took piece of paper and wrote the entire lyrics then singed the melody into my phone recorder.
Then a month later I had full mixed song from the studio (arrangement, recording, mixing being done during that time).
The song “The one” will be released in a dj remix with the video clip after around end of summer.
I can’t wait to complete my work on it and get it out and about! Hopefully, people will like it!
