Shireen Ahmad expresses fondness of Israel
A radio broadcaster for a Tunisian station had asked Egyptian singer Shireen Ahmad to hold a live interview with him, where listeners may call in and ask the singer direct questions. When the broadcaster called the singer and made his proposal, Shireen wholeheartedly accepted and promised to be home on the set date in order to hold the interview over the phone.
According to the London based Elaph, the minute the broadcaster called the singer on the given date of the interview she denied knowing him and hung up the phone in his face telling him it’s the wrong number. At this point the man was in shock for he was sure it was Shireen's voice that answered the phone, in addition to his making sure he was dialing the right number. After numerous attempts, the broadcaster gave up and apologized to all his listeners and told them the actual scenario of what had happened with him and how the singer expressed a rude and immature attitude towards him. He added that she should have been more professional and apologized for not wanting to hold the interview instead of merely saying "sorry you have the number".
The singer had also made a second mistake when she was the guest on a TV show and had expressed her fondness with the Israeli people and how she does not mind holding a concert in Israel. Her remarks caused many people including known singers to express their anger towards the singer saying that she has no sympathy towards the Palestinians and has no right to say such remarks.
Shireen had previously said in an interview that she feels Egyptian singer Shireen Wajdi is in it for the money and fame, referring to the new style the latter has acquired in her latest music album. Ahmad added that Wajdi has sold out her true nature and regardless of all the awards and honors she has received lately she will always be the singer of one song only.
Shireen Wajdi did not take long to attack Ahmad for the comments made against her and openly ridiculed and criticized everything the latter stands for. Wajdi’s first comment was if she is considered the singer of only one song then Shireen Ahmad is a singer of no song and has no talent.
Wajdi added that she never gave up her true nature and style and remains the same person who always strives to present her audience with the best. She said if Shireen Ahmad had any artistic knowledge, she would have realized that Wajdi had always sang songs that were filled with meaning and reached the heart of listeners. Wajdi also said that Ahmad is regretfully trying to imitate her without any hope. Wajdi stressed that Shireen Ahmad can not be considered a real singer or even a holder of any successful song for she lacks any real talent as a singer and a performer. Albawaba.com
