Najla and Bosi Samirs’ video clips banned on Melody Hits
Tunisian singer/dancer Najla and Egyptian dancer/singer Bosi Samir have been accused of having erotic and seductive video clips. The music channel Melody Hits has banned their video clips from being televised on the channel. The two singers are being furious by the news, they believe that their clips are legitimate and there is nothing wrong with them.
Najla’s song "Bahh" which means "empty or nothing" was taking off the air after it was televised for ten days. The second shock came to the singer, when she got turned away from entering Egypt. She stayed in the airport for more than ten hours trying out everything she can, yet she wasn’t able to enter the country.
Bosi’s song "Bahibo Howa" "I Love Him" has been taken off the air just a day after it was broadcast. It came as shocking news to the singer. She justify the song as being the second part for her previous song "Hot EL No’at Ala El Horof," therefore, since the previous one was accepted so should the second one.
Both singers think since they are belly dancers to start with, then their body movements in the songs are ok. They are combining both of their roles as dancers and singers in one.
According to Elaph, satellite channel Melody Hits said the decision came not from censorship. The fans of the channel wrote and called the channel for the songs to be taken off the air. Since the channel is number one in many Arab countries; therefore, the pressure was high.
