Shireen back in court once more
A Cairo court is going to look into a case a lawsuit against Egyptian singer Shireen Ahmad on September 8. Producer Hamdi Ahmed has instituted legal proceedings against Shireen accusing her of not fulfilling the terms of a contract singed between them. Ahmed was the first one to discover her talent and produced her fist album sponsoring all her work until she was well known.
Shireen rewarded him by signing with another production company ignoring him totally. Ahmed filed the lawsuit against her demanding she pay a penalty and another million EGP as compensation to all his financial and emotional loss according to Al-Sharq Al-Awsat newspaper.
Ahmed also warned the Egyptian musicians association to take all legal actions against Shireen according to his lawsuit, the thing that means canceling her membership from the association.
From her side Shireen only commented by saying that she will give the court all documents that would justify her action.
Shireen is preparing to enter her second acting experience, in the hope that it will be more successful than her first in the movie “Mido Trouble”, which proved to be a complete failure. The singer will be starring in the new film “Al Hub Al Americani” (Love the American Way) under the direction of Saeed Hamid.
The new film tackles daily social and economical problems of the young generation, and how love becomes like a fast food meal that is only thought of on the run.
Shireen recently announced that she has cancelled her trip to Algeria, where she was scheduled to hold a concert for the first time. Shireen revealed that the reason behind her cancellation is the fact that the sponsoring company was not able to send the plane tickets in addition to other matters concerning her stay in Algeria.
Shireen's trip to Algeria was to mark her first performance there and was to be sponsored by one of the telecommunication companies. Shireen's performance in Algeria was expected to find great success like the ones she previously held in Tunisia and Morocco. The singer is due to hold a number of concerts around the Arab world after which she will head to Egypt and concentrate on producing her next album.
Shireen revealed that she has accepted an invitation to hold live concerts at the Jordanian annual summer festival Jarash. Shireen's participation in the Jarash Festival comes during the end of August at which time she would have completed all the necessary preparations for her album. -Albawaba.com
