Shireen joins Nancy Ajram for a game of soccer
Egyptian singer Shireen Ahmad is scheduled to head to Lebanon this week to take part in the special celebration for the official launching of the Pan Arab Games. During the ceremony, Shireen will hold a live performance alongside Lebanese singers Nancy Ajram, Rida Boutrus and Milhim Zein.
According to the London based Elaph, the big event will take place in Beirut on June 27, 2004, in front of a very large live audience.
On a different note, Shireen is placing the final touches of her upcoming album, which she hopes to release in the very near future. Shireen has made it a point not to reveal any of the details regarding her new album, wanting it to be a surprise for her fans.
Egypt’s Department of Civil Affairs has filed a complaint against Shireen and her ex-husband Midhat Khamis accusing them of forgery. The two are accused of falsification on the legal paper work for their identification cards. The department had received a phone call from an anonymous person notifying them that the personal ID card of the singer states she is single, and the same case applied to her ex-husband. An investigation into the matter began and it appeared that the singer did in fact apply for a new card, due to the fact that her previous one was lost, and the information she had included was that she was single, despite the fact that she had publicly announced on a TV program that she is a divorced woman.
It is yet unclear what legal actions are to be taken against the singer, but it is said that it will surely have some negative affect on her current engagement. Shireen had announced her engagement to an Egyptian-American businessman, who is not part of the entertainment world. Shireen held a private engagement party in her home, which consisted of her family and producer Naser Mahrous, whom she made up with recently, in addition to her fiancé’s family.
Shireen stressed that her marriage will not affect her music career, and that she plans on resuming her journey, especially since the upcoming period marks such an important one with the success she is accomplishing.
Shireen has already begun preparations for her big wedding day, which she reveals will be a grand one with the presence of all her friends from the entertainment world. The wedding is scheduled to be held at one of the grand hotels in Cairo this summer. -Albawaba.com
