Tunisian singer/dancer Najla had recently took a short vacation from <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />Egypt and visited to her homeland Tunisia, but was shocked upon her return that Cairo airport security forbade her from entering the country. The news of Najla’s banning from Egypt was a rumor at first, but was validated when an Egyptian newspaper revealed that the singer was held at the airport for 12 hours endlessly trying all means to get permission to enter Egypt.
According to the London based Elaph, none of the singer’s contacts in Egypt were able to help her out and give her passage way into the country. It was revealed that the decision of Najla’s banning was made to please a number of extreme parliament members that had attacked the manner of Najla’s method in filming her video clips, especially the extremely seductive one of the horse.
Najla is to be taken as an example for all seductive singers and in many ways is a warning against female singers who film seductive music videos that go against all Arab and Muslim social and traditional standards.
