Rotana and Alam El Phan compete for Hani Shaker
The Music production companies Rotana and Alam El Phan are both eagerly trying to convince prominent Egyptian singer Hani Shaker to produce his upcoming album with one of them. Hani has shown no interest in dealing with either company and has revealed that he is seriously thinking of producing his album himself.
According to the London based weekly, Laha, Hani added that he wants to give production a try, especially after the failure of his last album, which only sold 50 thousand original copies.
Previously, commotion was caused by Hani's decision to resign and he is seriously thinking of ending his music career, but is waiting for the right moment to do so, despite the fact that he is still able to give so much to the music world.
The singer stressed that the type of songs that are flooding the music world have no meaning and in turn lost any real value words of a song may have, causing him to fall into a case of utter depression. Hani revealed that if the situation stays as it is or gets worse, he will surely make the final decision of stepping down while he is still capable of giving so much more to the music world, saying that resigning at that point will be made of his own free will.
Hani added that he is truly angry at the situation and is unable to cope with it in any way. He describes the music world as turning into a circus, where people just want to entertain through any means and become popular.
