Syrian music artist Miriam Atallah, graduate of the first season of the talent show “Star Academy,” has denied rumors circulating in newspapers that she is planning to perform a duet with Lebanese singer Nicola Al Asta.
Rumors claim the two will perform a national song together called “Sho Bedak Mini” (What do you want from me).
According to the London daily Elaph, Miriam’s press office released a statement asserting there were intentions for Miriam and Nicola to work together, but the project was cancelled. Miriam will perform a duet with a male singer instead.
Miriam confirmed that she has recorded the song for the poem
“Hobla” (Pregnant), written by the late Lebanese poet Nizar Qabani. Many famous singers have declined to sing the poem due to its outrageous words.
According to Miriam she went into the studios of Rojeh Khoury and recorded the song, accompanied by producer Ayman Al Thahabi. A copy of the recording is with her, said Mariam.
