Amal Maher: Patriot preacher or innocent singer? (Image: Facebook)
What's a singer to do when her music can't be heard? That's the question Amal Maher must be asking after the Egyptian Minister of Information, Salah Abdel Maqsoud, threw down a ban on the former Arab Idol contestant's music.
After wowing fans around the region with her voice, the edgy brunette's latest work is getting controversial, according to posts on her official FB page.
The Minister was not impressed by Amal's newest songs and music video. So, BAM! He banned them from airing on Egypt's official TV station.
We think they're just songs, he thinks they're calling for a revolution against current Egyptian President Morsi.
Yes, the title “Ya Maryeen” (Oh Egyptians) for TV show “Al Da'iah's” (The Preacher) theme song may sound a tad suspicious, but surely politics is the last thing on her mind?
Do you think Minister Maqsoud's decision would help simmer down Revolutionists, or only rile them up? Please share by commenting below!
