Maria seeking a partner
Controversial Lebanese singer Maria is searching for a male singer to sing a new duet with her after Lebanese singers Wael Kfoury and Ragheb Alama turned her down. Wael and Ragheb had based their refusal to sing with Maria on the fact that they do not consider her a real singer, but rather a performer.
Ragheb denied circulating rumors that he intends to pair up with Maria to sing the duet.
Ragheb’s managing office released a statement denying the rumor, adding that the only thing that had connected Ragheb to Maria was a recent concert in which both had performed.
Ragheb’s office added that the two performing at the same concert does not necessarily imply they will sing a duet, in addition to the fact that Ragheb does not have the time or the desire to pair up with another singer at the moment.
A Tunisian radio broadcaster, Hussan Taheri, had insisted he will not play songs by Maria on his nightly show.
Hussan made the announcement after Maria’s recent inappropriate display at her birthday party, dancing on top of her cake.
Hussan stated that the moment he saw the pictures of Maria’s birthday bash, he was disgusted and disappointed that a singer would go to such an extent to get attention.
Maria had held a grand celebration in honor of her birthday at the Siana nightclub in Lebanon with her business manager and friends that was considered over the top.
Maria was photographed dancing sensuously on her birthday cake while spreading the icing all over herself, wearing a provocative Barbie doll outfit.
