Cover of issue #6 of Sheeko magazine, featuring Somali supermodel Iman.
Sheeko is a glossy lifestyle magazine aimed at Horn Africans (Somalis, Ethiopians and Eritreans). The magazine is published quarterly in London. It covers current events, health, fashion, beauty, career and contemporary living, topics that are of interest to the Horn African community.
Sheeko Magazine was founded in 2005. It was conceived as a way to counter the negative stereotypes vis-a-vis the largely Muslim Horn African community that arose following the July 7, 2005 bombings in London.
Sheeko endeavours to pull together Somalis, Eritreans and Ethiopians, or rather, the Horn of Africa collectively. The term Sheeko means "narrative" or "story" in the Somali language.
