Egyptian singer Mohammad Foad has turned down 5 million US dollars offered by Rotana Music Production Company in order to join their team of singers. The singer stressed that he will not accept or consider any offer by any music company until his upcoming album is released.
Rotana had offered Mohammad the large sum of money in addition to undertaking all necessary measures for the release of his new album, but the singer refused to make any alterations until his contract with Alam El Phan Music Production Company ends. It was added that the contract is scheduled to end this year, after which Foad will begin to consider offers by other companies.
Foad is secretly holding extensive working sessions with a film scenarist, who is writing a film scenario for the first time, for his upcoming new movie. Fouad had stressed that the new film is sure to be a successful surprise among viewers for the story it tackles is of great importance.
Foad refused to give any extra details regarding the nature of the film, aside from the fact that he will begin shooting the scenes in the very near future. It was revealed that Mohammad is targeting a romantic script hoping to find a story that revolves around a love story containing musical performances.
In March, a court hearing for Egyptian singer Mohammad Foad against Saudi Record Production Company Tala was held. Mohammad filed a lawsuit demanding 1,100,000 Egyptian pounds in addition to 2,000,000 US dollars in compensation for losses caused by the company.
Mohammad said that in July 2000 he agreed with the company to give the original copy of his album “Kibir Al Gharam” (Love Journey), which consists of eight songs. Foad added that he will be responsible for covering the cost of production for the album, in terms of composing, recording, distribution, etc., while the company will be responsible for covering the cost of advertising and shooting one of the songs in the form of a video clip.
Foad filed the lawsuit when the company did not abide by the conditions set in the contract between the two leading him to cover the cost from his own budget, which in turn negatively affected his reputation. The singer added that according to the contract he has the right to ask for the suggested money compensation from the company. Mohammad sent a warning to Tala in January to pay the due amount, but the company refused. -Albawaba.com
