Ehab Tawfiq denies being detained in Canada
Egyptian singer Ehab Tawfiq has visited a number of Canadian cities in the past two weeks as part of a tour he has been holding around Northern America. After competing his tour around Canada, Ehab headed to the United States of America accompanied by the sponsor of his concerts to complete his performances.
It was rumoured that as Ehab was denied entrance into the US due to a lawsuit filed against him and as a result was held up along with his sponsor by Canadian police. In a personal phone call made to the singer, he denied such rumors stressing that he had just completed a concert in Minnesota. Ehab stressed that he did not face such demeaning circumstances and had entered the US without any complications.
According to the London based Elaph, Ehab added that he is now in Cairo to resume preparations of his upcoming album, and plans on returning to the US within three weeks to complete his tour around different states.
Tawfiq recently shot two new music videos from his latest album “Leeh El Khisam” (Why the Arguing). The first song “Albi Daa’” (The Heart Beats), written by Ahmad Shatta and composed by Ahmad Farhat, will be shot in Cairo-Egypt under the direction of Ahmad Al Mahdi. The second song “Ili Imdawibni” (The One Whom I love), written by Khaled Muneer and composed by Rahim, will be filmed in Turkey under the direction of Jamil Al Maghazi.
The singer worked with a number of other prominent poets and writers for the new album, under the production of High Quality Music Company. It was revealed that Ehab is currently holding negotiations with a new production company but refused to give out any further details until a deal is struck.
Tawfiq has announced that joining the Music Production Company Rotana was a dream he had for such a long time, always feeling that it was the gateway to competing with some of the biggest name in the music industry. Ehab’s contract with Rotana is for the upcoming three years, in which the singer agreed to produce at least one new album per year.
Ehab noted that his move to Rotana was not a coincidence and that it was one of his major goals for some time. Ehab added that he carefully planned joining Rotana, because being part of the company means taking a major leap in his career. Tawfiq has received an invitation from the officials of Rotana to attend a celebration for the signing of his new contract, as was the case with Syrian singer George Wassouf and Egyptian singer Amr Diab. –Albawaba.com
