Popular Saudi singer Mohammed Abdu  has hit out at rumors that he has put an end to performing because of ill health.
Gossip hit the web on Thursday evening that the Arab celeboshpere's favorite masculine diva was ordered by doctors to give up singing on stage in a bid to salvage his deteriorating health.
But the star himself has been singing a different tune, claiming that his step back from the stage has more to do with politics than health.
Mohammed has reportedly told fans he will be back performing when conditions in the Arab world improve.
Unsurprisingly his cryptic comments have done little to satisfy fans who want the so-called 'Artist of Arabs' back on stage ASAP.
