Amr Diab to record future albums in Europe under strict security
Egyptian singer Amr Diab has decided that from now on he will record all future albums in Europe amidst strict security in order to be sure his tapes will not be pirated and his songs dispersed everywhere before he announces any release. Amr expressed his rage at the fact the he is the only singer who has experienced such occurrences where at least one song is somehow stolen and is out to the public forcing him to exclude it from a new release.
According to the London based daily, Al Quds Al Arabi, Amr said that he plans to record his new albums in Europe where they have more advanced recording studios and strict security. He will place any album recorded in the hands of specialist who protect albums from leakage without prior authorization. The singer added he will take all measures to protect his albums from the mafia of music forgery and pirating who have over the years made it a point to steal his songs.
Amr denied all rumors of a dispute with Lebanese singer Ragheb Alama, saying he holds high respect for the singer who successfully knew how to make it in the music industry. With regards to a possible duet with Ragheb, Amr said that he was never offered such a proposal, adding that he does not intend on holding any duets at the time with any singer despite the numerous offers he received from around the world.
On a different note, the singer was found innocent of stealing a song which was supposedly made for singer Sherif Hamdi. A Cairo court dismissed all charges against Amr saying that the composer has the right to give his song to any desired singer and if no prior contract is made. Sherif had filed a lawsuit against Amr and composer Hilmi Bakri demanding ten million Egyptian pounds in compensation. –Albawaba.com
