Algerians launch campaign to boycott Fadel Shaker
A number of Algerians have launched a campaign on the internet social networks Twitter and Facebook calling for the boycott of Lebanese singer Fadel Shaker and banning him from holding or taking part in musical performances in Algeria. The campaign was created after Fadel made public statements about Algerian prominent singer Warda saying she should resign and wear the Islamic headdress hijab.
Fadel had recently made harsh statements about a number of singers among who was Warda. Fadel had said that Warda should respect her age and her prestigious history by resigning.
According to the internet website MBC.net, despite the fact that Warda did not make any public reply to Fadel’s remarks, her fans in Algeria decided to answer him back in their own way. Warda’s fans said that all recent attacks against Warda in the recent period are unjustified and are meaningless.
