Fans of Arab music star Maher Zain have a chance to come face-to-face with the singer in Dubai.

The Lebanese-Swedish talent is one of the biggest names of the nasheed genre. Since shifting from his early R&B stylings to score huge success with 2009's Thank You Allah, followed by 2012's Forgive Me, Zain has now performed on five continents and amassed more than 25 million Facebook fans.

To promote his latest album, One, the 35-year-old will host a live UAE launch event, complete with a signing session for fans, at Virgin Megastore, Mall of the Emirates, on Wednesday October 5 from 7.30pm.
