Ehab Tawfiq creates chaos in Bahrain
A recent concert held by Egyptian singer Ehab Tawfiq in one of the biggest shopping centers in Bahrain, gave rise to opposition from local residents.
Chaos erupted after one of the residents stopped traffic, forbidding fans to attend the concert and causing minor car accidents.
According to the Al Watan daily, angry residents stressed that they do not want concerts to be held in their neighborhood considering them to be against their ethics and unsuitable to their traditions. Mobs of residents held posters and slogans in opposition.
Despite the chaos the audience was packed, and eventually the protestors left the scene after their attempts to stop the concert failed.
On a different note, Ehab is preparing to shoot his new music video for the song “Hubbik Alamni” (Your Love Taught Me) under the direction of Saeed Al Marouq. The song is from Ehab’s latest album released a few months ago.
Ehab was shocked to discover that composer Mohammad Abdul Hai had accused him of stealing the song "Hubbak Alamni" (Your Love Taught Me), also the title of his latest album.
Ehab stated that he was appalled by the lawsuit Abdul Hai has filed against him, demanding an exorbitant sum of money, since he legally bought the rights to the song from composer Mohammad Raheem and poet Ikram Al Assi.
“If the song was originally written by Abdul Hai, then they are the ones, who should be prosecuted,” Ehab stated.
Abdul Hai, who filed the lawsuit, asserted that he is the one who wrote and composed the song three years ago and Egyptian singer Tamer Husni was supposed to sing it. He claims that he owns the intellectual propriety rights to the song and is demanding three million Egyptian pounds for damages caused by Ehab.
Mohammad Raheem claims that the lawsuit is nonsense, and he is a capable and talented composer who can write his own songs. He has written numerous songs for prominent singers like Amr Diab, Shireen Wajdi, Nawal Al Zoughbi, and Hisham Abbas.
