Lebanese singer Haifa Wahbi is expected to heat up New Years Eve alongside renowned Iraq singer Kathem El Sahir in one of Beirut’s five stars hotel. According to the London based daily, Al Sharq Al Awsat, Haifa has not yet decided if she wants to sing with Kathem or accept a second offer she was given to host New Years Eve at a different hotel.
The daily added that Wahbi is currently working on filming a music video from her latest album with director Salim Al Turk, who also filmed her only music video “Tagool Ahwak” (You Say I Love You).
The video was said to have included seductive scenes that cannot be permitted by the censors. Many critics say that Wahbi's music style is easily distinguished from other singers, using her seductive figure and voice as a mean to attract her audience.
The singer had just returned from Syria after being the guest on one of the talk shows. She will be travelling to Jordan in the near future to sign agreements to hold a number of concerts.
After the huge success she received for her album "Huwa el Zaman" (It's the Time), Haifa announced that she is to quit modeling with no intentions to any return dedicating all her time to her musical career. "Though lots of people advised me to stick to modeling, I decided to leave this stage behind me, moving on to add a singing career to my portfolio," Wahbi said.
Despite all criticism Wahbi faced concerning the shift in career last year, she stuck her ground and continued recording her ten-song album "Huwa el Zaman", which took her almost a year to complete. - Albawaba.com
