Tamer Husni and the 2 million dollars
A rivalry was caused between young Egyptian superstars Tamer Husni and Muhammad Hamaqi, whom both are considered to be the most popular singers among young Egyptian listeners. The competition was over who is better fit to do the advertisement for an international soft drink company.
Last year’s advertisement for the international brand of soda water was led by Muhammad Hamaqi and this year the company has chosen Tamer Husni to represent their product. Rumors has it that Tamer was the one who sought out for the new position, especially since the company assigned him to do an advertisement for its product worldwide. Tamer will be paid 2 million dollars for the advertisement.
The conflict between Tamer and Hamaqi has affected their fans and caused some kind of war between their fans, each side insisting that the artist it supports is far better than the other. At the end Tamer has won the advertisement and got paid a large sum of money.
On his behalf Tamer says that he can’t reveal how much he was paid, because it is a secret between him and the company. He adds that the issue is a supply and demand and the company has the ability to choose which artist to work with. Tamer believes that if the artist that is chosen is capable of accomplishing great sales for the company then the company will pay whatever sum of money the artist asks for.
As for the advertisement, Tamer says that he filmed the ad and it will be aired in June. adding that there are no conflicts between him and anyone else. He believes that the most popular artist won and it is not true that he went after the company to give him the new position. It is needless to say that the song that Tamer sung during the advertisement is written and composed by him and it is distributed by Tamim. Tamer will include the new song in his upcoming album.
