WHAT THE HECK IS BUZZZING?
In a bustling city where everyday something new happens, it’s unacceptable when people live their lives in monotony. That’s where we come in.
BuzZzing.com exists to help people get plugged into everything that’s BuzZzing.
That extra Z? It stands for everything we are made of – our zest for life and our zeal for telling real good stories.
That’s what makes us UAE’s freshest, sassiest, and hippest news platform for the everyone young at heart!
MEET THE BUZZZKETEERS
We are zippy, a little zany, and always BuzZzing. We go around town, painting it red, blue, or whatever shines
through, only to fetch stories for you. Be it the doughnut run or the supercar parade, squid game, or squid salt
and pepper, we are always BuzZzing.
A failed chef, an aspiring sommelier, and a 'joker dad' to a 10-year-old, Abi is the team's pretentious founder- editor. An award-winning journalist and an acclaimed public speaker in the past, he gets buzZzing with food, travel, and Arsenal FC.
With an uncanny talent for identifying the perfect shot, Niyaz is BuzZzing's go-to man for evocative imagery. He is also our stunning in-house video editor who's made hundreds of stylish commercial and time-lapse videos.
