Tamer Husni is “Mr. Sensitive”
Egyptian singer Tamer Husni has begun a promotional campaign for his new film “Sidi Al Atifi” (Mr. Sensitive), making special appearances in an attempt to curry the favor of his female fans.
According to the London based Elaph, the campaign includes appearances with the film’s leading actresses, in addition to a number of performances.
Tamer explained that a strong promotional campaign is essential for a film entering this summer’s heated movie competition.
After an extended application period, Tamer has finally become a member of the Egyptian Artists Association; classified as a “singer.” He has been seeking membership for protection of his rights as a performer.
Recently, the Egyptian Musician Association decided to ban Tamer from holding any public performances in Egypt until it finishes its investigation of an accusation of verbal assault by Tamer against several fans.
Several concert goers filed a complaint to the association against Tamer, alleging that the singer began swearing and speaking to them in a very rude manner at a concert. Reportedly, the incident lasted 10 minutes.
Tamer denies verbally assaulting any fans, or even being rude.
He stressed he would never act in such a way, since “his fans that are the reason he is singing.”
“I always control my emotions while performing even if some individual begins to bother me,” he added.
Tamer suggested that the association had taken such stringent action against him to try and make an example of him to other singers who do not treat their audiences in the proper manner.
