Amr Diab caught stealing Fairouz’s song
In his new release “Alim Albi Al Gharam” (Teach My Heart To Love), produced by Alam Al Fan Music Production Company, Egyptian singer Amr Diab is proven guilty of stealing two songs that do not belong to him one for a foreign singer the other for Lebanese diva Fairouz. The song “Ma Ultish Leah” (Why Did You Not Say) is originally Fairouze’s song “Sa’alouni El Nas” (People Asked Me).
According to the London based Elaph, dozens of letters to different media sources were received saying that the Amr had clearly stolen the song from the Lebanese singer without buying it’s rights or even asking permission to sing it. Amr has made no comments regarding the theft of the songs and still considers them his rightfully.
The new album features Amr in a new look and music styles. He combined Tango, Jazz, Techno, and eastern genres all in one. It will also feature al Mizmar (an eastern musical instrument similar to the flute) to the outside world in a modern style particularly after he included the Tabla (drum) in his song “Habibi Wala Ala Baloh” (My Love is Not Paying Attention). The new album will include music close to Muwashahat (Terza Merza). Diab has been working with poet Ayman Bahgat Amar on his new song Min Haqqi (It is My Right) through which he wants to convey a clear, true and interpretive message that Palestine is an Arab country and Jerusalem is an Arab city and both belong to Arabs. –Albawaba.com
