Future TV adopts Milhim Zein for five years
Lebanese singer Milhim Zein, who has become known to the Arab world through his participation in the number one talent show “Superstar”, has signed a five-year contract with the Lebanese satellite television channel “Future”. The contract specifically states that “Future” is to adopt Milhim’s music career, in the sense that they will sponsor all of his entertainment activities.
According to the London based Elaph, Milhim will hold a press conference, in which the details of the contract will be discussed. The singer is currently preparing for the release of his first album, which is produced by Music Master Production company.
Recently, coincidence brought Zein together with his previous rival Jordanian singer Diana Karazone, who won the title Arab Superstar, at a famous Lebanese hair salon, where Milhim had gone to get a haircut at the same time Diana wanted to have a new hairstyle made. To add to the odd coincidence, one of the television satellite channels was present at the salon in order to hold an interview with Milhim and the broadcaster, Rabi’a Al Zaiat, took advantage of the moment and requested to hold a joint interview with both singers.
Milhim was at first hesitant about the idea, but then agreed to hold the interview. Diana acted in a very natural way with Milhim and sang her hit song “Insani Ma Bansak” (Forget Me I Won’t Forget You) while Milhim sang a song for Egyptian singer Hisham Abbas.
The elimination of Milhim Zein from the Lebanese satellite channel Future television most popular show Superstar had caused a great chaos to breakout in Lebanon and other areas around the Arab world. Viewers refused to accept that Milhim was voted out of the contest, especially since he was the one whom everyone thought would was most suited for the title and would surely win, but on the final episode the winner was Diana.
Milhim revealed that despite the fact that he did not win the title Superstar, he will continue the steps in his music career and is currently preparing for his first release, which features a collection of songs all sung in the Lebanese accent. –Albawaba.com
