Television programs eager to host Diana Haddad
Lebanese singer Diana Haddad is currently in Lebanon after receiving invitations from a number of television stations to be guest on their programs. The first invitation Diana received was from the Arab satellite television station MBC to be guest on their program Dandana, and the second from the Lebanese satellite channel Future on the program Sabisial.
According to the London based Elaph, Diana's visit was not only to shoot the episodes of the different programs, but to also to complete preparations for her upcoming album under the production of Alam El Phan. Diana revealed that the styles in the new album will vary from Lebanese, Egyptian, and the Bedouin accents.
Diana stressed that she is hoping to have her new album ready by the summer of 2005 and plans on shooting a music video for the first time under the direction of Sofi Boutros. The singer added that she is also scheduled to travel to Cairo to be guest on a number of Egyptian channels.
Haddad has announced that she has fired her former business manager Ropier Fakhri and that there no longer exists any form of bond between them. She stressed that Ropier no longer represents her and is not eligible to speak in her name, as was the case before.
It was revealed that Diana had laid off Ropier after she discovered that he was behind the recent rumors of her divorce. Diana added that there are other business and personal reasons leading her to take such a drastic decision.
Haddad is back in the spotlight after a two-year absence with a new musical album that is achieving a great success. Diana said that her album “Awal Marra” (The First Time) was supposed to be released last year but when she was about to release it she found other good songs that she felt should be added to the. The same instance happened another time and so she decided to film three video clips to be released with the album.
About her continuous work with Suhail Abdoul, Diana Haddad's husband, the singer revealed that her husband is busy now with his new satellite channel “Nogoum” (Stars) and the idea of cooperating with other directors is now just a matter of time. Among the names nominated to direct Diana's video clips are Ahmad Mahdi, Nadine Labki, Sa'eed Marouq, and Jamil Moghazi.
Diana noted that she is very happy with her song “Awal Mara” because its her first experience to sing in the Moroccan accent and she did it to show respect to her fans in Morocco. Diana added that she likes change in her work and always tries to surprise her fans with good and new songs. –Albawaba.com
