Samira Said: The banning of my latest music video is a lie!
Considered one of the most successful Arab singers, Moroccan Samira Said lashed out recently against rumors circulating about the banning of her latest music video with Algerian Rai singer, Cheb Mami, "Yom Wara Yom" (Day After Day).
The Egyptian daily, Al Akhbar, reported on Saturday that the singer denied the rumors claiming that the video was banned on Gulf TV stations due to indecent and seductive scenes. "The duet was screened on all Arab TV stations, in addition to Europe and the US, and stayed on the top of the charts for several months. The news of the banning is a lie, and it is merely intended to affect my career," Said said.
Proving to be a loving wife and a wonderful mother despite her long music career, Said told the newspaper that she won't give much time to rumors, "I'm now living one of my happiest days with my family and my only son Shadi and I won't lose this for rumors.”
Earlier this month, Said faced a severe exhaustion after a vacation she spent with her son Shadi in Paris, most probably to be the affect of a food poisoning she had following a meal of lobsters and snails she ate there.
Born and raised in Rabat, Morocco, Said now lives her life between Egypt, Morocco and the US. She began singing at an early age in the TV program Mawaheb (Talents), dedicated to children's talents. But it wasn't until "Alemnah Al Hob" (Teach Us Love), in 1983, that the doors of fame had opened for her. – Albawaba.com
