Sarah Al Hajiri refuses to be associated with Jad Shuwairi
The disputes between Saudi poet Sarah Al Hajiri and Lebanese controversial singer Jad Shuwari have escalated and taken a new turn. Sarah’s managing office has released a press release stating that Sarah demands that her name be removed from Jad’s latest album. The poet threatened that if her demand is not met she will take legal actions to stop the album and have all the copies with her name on them removed from the market.
According to the London based Elaph, Sarah was shocked when she learned that her name was included in Jad’s album “Eishha Kiddah” (Live it like this) and specifically next to the song “Hibeena” (Love Me), which is originally by the late legendary singer Fareed Al Atrash. Sarah stressed that she has nothing to do with the song and has asked Jad to immediately have her name removed from the album’s credits and if he does not comply she will file a lawsuit against him.
In the past, Sarah had stopped two filmed music videos of which the songs are written and produced by her. Both clips were directed by Jad the first for singer Michelen Khalifa and the second by Ewan. Sarah had stopped the songs from airing due to her dissatisfaction with the final outcome of the videos, in turn sparking disputes between her and Jad.
