Syrians surprise Maya Nasri
Lebanese singer Maya Nasri has recently held a concert in Syria, marking one of the most successful in her career. The singer was in shock to learn that over 14 thousand people have come to watch and hear her sing.
According to the London based Elaph, Syrian fans rushed to the stadium, where Maya held her performance, holding large posters of the singer. The crowd sang along with every song Maya sung and kept shouting “1, 2, 3, Maya is our life”. The singer expressed her appreciation to the Syrian audience for their support and love towards her.
Nasri has shocked the entertainment world with her announcement of releasing a doll that looks like her and holds her name. The singer revealed that she has personally financed the new project and it is her surprise for the year 2004.
Maya revealed that the idea began a year ago at a time when she wanted to do something new that reflects her personality and is within her financial capabilities. She had first introduced the doll to her family and producer Simon Asmar, who welcomed the idea and supported her the entire way. Maya then had one of her cousins, who is a designer, design the doll for her making sure that its is a mirror image of her actual outer appearance.
Maya stressed that she hopes the doll will find popularity and success, especially among children. She also hopes the doll will compete with the different toys currently in stores and becomes a useful entertaining object.
Nasri recently held a concert for the Anwar Al Mahaba Organization, which proceeds went to victims of AIDS. The singer has expressed her will to hold such a concerts in the hope that many victims of this disease will receive better treatment.
Nasri has for the past two years been suffering terribly with her previous production company, which had postponed her latest album for over a year. Maya had been treated badly by her company which refused to give justifications for postponing her album and not meeting most of the terms in her contract. Maya finally broke free from the company and she has finally begun to reveal the misery she was feeling with them publicly in most of the interviews she holds. It has also been revealed that the singer may shift to Rotana production company, which has since the summer been showing exceptional interest in her and her music. The singer is debating whether the shift to Rotana will make up for the misery she has felt in the past years, and is hopeful if she makes the decision to move she will be treated fairly and rightfully as she feels she deserves. - Albawaba.com
