Ragheb declared that he was honored to perform in Mauritania, and hopes that the overturn of power that occurred less than a month ago will come to a peaceful resolution.
Alama denied circulating rumors that he intends to pair up with controversial Lebanese singer Maria to sing a duet.
The singer’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, reported the London based Elaph.
