Assi Hilani drives away with a stolen car
Lebanese singer Assi Hilani recently bought a new Mercedes Benz Coupe that had turned out to be stolen from its rightful owner. Assi had purchased the car from a man who had apparently forged all the legal papers that stated the car are his property, in order to walk away with a large sum of money from the singer.
According to the Kuwaiti based daily, Al Rai Al Aam, a court judge in Lebanon charged the seller of the car with forgery and car theft. Assi was clear of all charges due to the fact that he did not know of the scam that was pulled on him and of course he had to return the car to its rightful owner.
Hilani is currently in the process of preparing for the release of his upcoming album due to be out in the very near future. The singer has revealed that this time he has left the new and modern style and returned to the more traditional and classical one. His new album is a collection of 12 new songs sung in the Lebanese and Bedouin accents, a style that the singer had refrained from singing in his previous album.
Assi stressed that his upcoming release is revolutionary in the type of music it contains. The singer is sure that the songs chosen for the album will prove to be a big success among his viewers, in which he used modernized musical and singing techniques.
Assi worked with a selected group of distributors, composers and poets for his album, which he felt were most fit for the success he hopes to achieve. The songs were recorded between Turkey, Egypt and Lebanon.
Assi is also in the process of holding a number of concerts around the Arab world, mainly in Egypt, Syria, Tunisia and Lebanon. He is also scheduled to hold a tour around Canada alongside Lebanese singer Alissa in early June. –Albawaba.com
