In celebration of eniGma’s 20th anniversary, we knew we had to have a special cover shoot, and what better way to celebrate this milestone than by bringing together four of our favourite stunning idols come together fearless media mogul Hala Sarhan, Egypt’s leading lady of drama Nelly Karim, Tunisian beauty and stunning star Dorra Zarrouk and talented model-turned-actress Tara Emad. eniGma’s Mohamed Hesham sat with each of these four spectacular stars to reminisce about their journeys and lasting memories with eniGma.

Dorra Zarrouk

“I’ve been a part of the magazine for the past 10 years. eniGma was with me from the start and I feel that it helped boost my career. Happy anniversary and thank you so much to Yasmine Shihata. I commend you for your excellent work. Although I’ve worked with many other magazines in the region, eniGma will always have a special place in my heart. I hope we always continue working together on amazing projects for years to come.”

Nelly Karim

“Now that I’m looking back at my memories with eniGma, I’m astonished at how many special moments we’ve shared together, from appearing on the cover many times over the years, to travelling to London and celebrating with eniGma at the Celebration of Arab Glamour & Success. We literally grew together. Happy Birthday eniGma! I hope we always celebrate and continue working together for many years to come.”

Tara Emad

“One of my first magazine photo shoots ever as a model was for eniGma. It was a shoot celebrating eniGma’s tenth anniversary. It’s hard to believe eniGma is now turning 20! I wish eniGma and the entire team a happy birthday and congratulate them on thriving even in the digital age. eniGma is one of the magazines that is present and dominant no matter what; it’s always standing strong. It always has amazing content, and I’m happy that it is constantly growing and striving to be better and better. I’m happy that I was there to celebrate their 10 year anniversary and I’m happy to be here celebrating their twenty years.”

Hala Sarhan

“eniGma will always be the number one publication to me. I can’t begin to describe the joy that this magazine has brought me over the years. They featured me in a beautiful cover that I love dearly. eniGma’s annual Celebration of Arab Glamour & Success in Beverly Hills has also become a huge part of my life. Yasmine Shihata and Omnia Zaied are now two of the most treasured assets in the publishing world. Congratulations to the entire eniGma team.”
