Bin Laden's niece enters the world of pop music
Saudi Wafah Bin Laden, daughter of Osama Bin Laden brother, has decided to enter the world of pop music. Wafah is to begin working with Nelly Hopper, who is the official producer of American singer Madonna.
According to the London based, the Sun, Wafah fears rejection from the public due to the closeness in relation with the Al Qaeda leader, despite the numerous appraisals she received for her voice from well-known figures. Wafah, who was described to look a lot like her close friend top model Katelina, has not appeared to the public in any way.
Wafah is currently in London where she has resided for the past six months. She is a twenty-six-year-old graduate of Columbia Law School. Wafah's father, Yeslam, is the Geneva-based head of the Binladin family's European holding company, the Saudi Investment Company. When she learned of the terror attacks on America, Wafah, who lived in a rented loft in SoHo, became frantic.
She was born an American citizen when Yeslam was studying at the University of Southern California, in Los Angeles. She was raised for the most part in Switzerland (her father recently became a Swiss citizen) and she grew up so removed from the family's roots that her first language was French. Last year, she completed an internship at the New York law firm of Schulte Roth & Zabel. –Albawaba.com
