Haifa Wahbi supports Operah Winfrey
Lebanese singer Haifa Wahbi will participate in a press conference in the capital of Morocco to nominate internationally renown American talk show host Operah Winfrey for a Noble Peace Prize for the campaign she launched to fight the spread HIV.
Recently, Moroccan officials rejected a request by Haifa to hold a charity concert for HIV research.
After submitting a request for permission to enter the country, Haifa was surprisingly denied. The European sponsor of the event was forced to relocate the concert to Tunisia, where Haifa is allowed to perform. The proposed concert will take place on April 10.
Haifa is currently filming the new music video for the song ‘Rajab’ with director Hadi Al Bajouri. In the new clip, Haifa plays the role of a gypsy who ends up at a coffee house near the sea packed with fishermen where she meets a man named ‘Rajab.’ She seeks Rajab’s assistance to win the love of his handsome friend.
Meanwhile, Haifa is being attacked by a ruthless campaign waged by her younger sister Rola.
Rola was quoted by several Arabic magazines as stating that she regrets Haifa is her sister. She claims that Haifa abused her physically and verbally to the extent she called for police protection.
Rola also claims that Haifa has a “strange personality” and is a “jealous person” especially from other singers like Nancy Ajram, Alissa, and Rula Saed, and forbids her family from listening to their music.
On her part, Haifa claims Roula is mentally unstable and is seeking psychiatric help. Haifa expressed her disappointment over their relationship, and said that despite all that has been said she hopes her sister will recover from her mental illness.
