Egypt in the 30s where everything was classy and clean and I would have to loved to be Abd el Wahab


When and why did you start singing?

I studied in the conservatoire since I was 10 and started WAMA when I was 18 years old, so I know nothing and learnt nothing but singing so there was nothing else I want to but that.

Ya lail with WAMA

Its creativity; when you have some words written on a paper turn into a song with a melody and people listening to it, singing it and liking it.


What was the most important day of your life?

It is the day when I accomplish success and I feel that my work is out in the light and people are interacting with it.


Do you worry about whether people like you for the real you or because you are a celebrity?

No I dont, I know that my friends like me for who I am. And I also love my fans love and respect for me, loving me for being a celebrity doesnt bother me at all its part of who I am.


Do you make friends easily?

No not really, I have very few friends.

Kan ya makan is our new album, and should be out on Valentines Day and I hope it gets the success it deserves.


What are your wishes for 2014?

Success, happiness and good health for my family and friends and of course all the best for Egypt and to overcome all our problems.

With hard work, comes great reward.
