Muhsin Jabr careless about Ragheb Alama's decision to leave
Producer Muhsin Jabr, owner of Alam El Phan Production Company, revealed that he was able to save his company during the last two years after it had passed through some of its hardest time and was in danger of being ruined. Muhsin stressed that the problems his company went through were mainly due to rumors that were created by the media that rose to the surface with the appearance of new competitors.
According to the London based Elaph, rumors kept surfacing as singers in Alam El Phan began shifting to other competitors and the media focused on them mainly ignoring the big names that remained in the company or the new ones that were joining it.
With regards to how Muhsin feels about Lebanese singer Ragheb Alama, he revealed that he likes him on the personal level and respects him as a singer, but if the singer is threatening to leave the company, then Muhsin noted that it is up to him and his leaving would not affect the company in any way. Muhsin added that he will keep on going and won't allow his company to fall apart no matter what.
Alama had threatened to leave his production company Alam El Phan after they have been continuously delaying the release of his upcoming album. Disputes erupted between Ragheb and the owner of the company, Muhsin Jaber, after the later postponed the release more than three times and the situation reached a dead-end.
The singer had placed the final touches on his upcoming album and finalized it over two months ago in the hope that it will be launched in the beginning of the summer season. Ragheb had repeatedly tried to pressure Muhsin in releasing the album, but the latter kept delaying the matter making the singer go into an outrage.
Ragheb announced that this album will be the last he will produce with Alam El Phan, and that he will not renew his three-year contract, which is about to end.
Alama’s album "Al Hub Al Kabeer" (The Big Love) is said to be the last one Ragheb will release under Alam El Phan, as it is rumored that he is currently holding negotiations with Rotana Production Company for the possibility of joining them.
Ragheb did not make any public announcement regarding the possibility of his shift to Rotana. Alama is currently shooting two songs from his upcoming album, which features 12 songs, in the form of a video clip in complete secrecy refusing to give out any details. –Albawaba.com
