Mohammad Foad denies being critically ill
Egyptian singer Mohammad Foad has denied circulating rumors that he is critically ill and has left Egypt to be treated abroad. The singer revealed he was shocked to hear such news upon returning from Dubai, after being on a vacation with his family.
According to the daily Al Jazeera, Mohammad stressed that he thanks God that his is in perfect health and is enjoying a very healthy lifestyle, adding that his vacation was simply to take time off and relax with his family. Mohammad noted that many rumors have been written about him, but this was the one that really hurt him stressing that he will investigate the matter and sue the person behind it.
Recently, Foad has turned down a very tempting offer of 750 thousand US dollars to sing in Israel. Mohammad stressed that he would not even consider to sing in Israel even if he was offered all the money in the world.
Mohammad added that how can he overlook the fact that the Israelis are behind the killing of so many innocent Palestinian children and are the main cause of suffering for the Palestinian people. The singer added that he dreams of the day he will go to Palestine after it is free from the brutal occupation. He also noted that many Israeli businessmen are constantly haunting Egyptian singers trying to cut deals with them to have them sing in Israel, but their attempts are always faced with failure.
The singer is currently working with a team of American experts in the field of acting out action scenes in preparations for his upcoming movie. Foad will begin shooting scenes in the upcoming days. The singer has spent almost three years with the scenarist until they finally completed the script for the film.
Foad had also turned down 5 million US dollars offered by Rotana Music Production Company in order to join their team of singers. The singer stressed that he will not accept or consider any offer by any music company until his upcoming album is released.
Rotana had offered Mohammad the large sum of money in addition to undertaking all necessary measures for the release of his new album, but the singer refused to make any alterations until his contract with Alam El Phan Music Production Company ends. It was added that the contract is scheduled to end this year, after which Foad will begin to consider offers by other companies. -Albawaba.com
