Mayada doubts Asalah’s Syrian nationality
Prominent Syrian singer
criticized Syrian singer Asalah
Nasri’s support for the protesters in
Syria, who are calling for the resignation of the government of President
Bashar Al Asad. Mayada stated that Asalah has given up her Syrian nationality
and became Egyptian.
According to the Kuwaiti daily Al-Watan, Mayada considered Asalah’s support for revolution against the regime of Bashar Al Asad shows she has no patriotism for Syria, and the fact that she holds an Egyptian and Bahraini citizenships proves that. Mayda added that Asalah has become so distant from her country that she rarely speaks with a Syrian dialect.
Recently, Asalah had publicly announced that she fully supports protesters in Syria and wishes she could join them for their call for freedom and a true democracy, which according to her is not practiced under the regime of Bashar Al Asad.
At the same time, Mayada denied rumors that she had contacted Asalah to congratulate her on the birth of her twins from her Egyptian husband, director Tareq Al Arian. Mayada stated that Asalah had never congratulated her when she got married so why would she congratulate her on the birth of her new babies.
