Prominent Egyptian singer Amr Diab expressed his joy at winning two titles one for best singer for 2003, and the second for best musical video for the song “Ana Ayesh” (I am Alive) according to a poll done by Nile variety TV.
Diab is placing the final touches on his upcoming album “Khalina Inshoofak” (Let Us See You), which is scheduled to be released this January 2004. adding that he will be doing three songs from the new album as video clips and they will be filmed in Cairo.
Diab added that he would be giving his fans a new surprise for this year, which is a new musical movie, but Amr said that the female star has not been chosen yet.
The singer revealed had recently completed shooting the music video for the main song of the album “Khalina Inshoofak” and that he will shoot the song “Salmitilak” in the form of a video clip immediately after his New Year’s Eve performance in order to have it ready with the release of the album.
According to the London based Elaph, Amr stressed that he was in shock to learn that many of his songs from the new album were leaked to the black market and pirated copies are being sold. He also expressed his anger at the fact that his album is being sold on the streets for a price of only 10 Egyptian pounds, a matter that negatively reflects on the success of the album upon its official release. Amr revealed that this is not the first time he is exposed to such pirating of his albums before their official release.
Amr is always looking for new ideas and styles to introduce to his fans that are unique and have not been used before. The singer is always careful that even the words he chooses for his songs are different from all other in the hope of staying on top and meeting the high expectations of his audience. –Albawaba.com
