Music producer and owner of ‘Alam El Phan Production Company,’ Muhsin Jaber, has filed a lawsuit against Lebanese singer Ragheb Alama and Melody music channel demanding 10 million Egyptian pounds as compensation for financial losses.
Muhsin claims that Ragheb gave ‘Melody’ permission to air his music video “Al Hubb Al Kibeer” (The Big Love) from his latest album, which was released by ‘Alam El Phan.’
Muhsin explained that despite the fact that his contract with Ragheb ended, he still owns right to the last album that his company produced, and the singer had no right to give the clip to a third party.
According to the contract between the two, it was required that Muhsin finance the filming of Ragheb’s latest music video “Al Hubb Al Kibeer’ (The Big Love).
However, ‘Alam El Phan’ refused to film the clip, leading Ragheb to finance the clip on his own.
The clip, filmed in Malaysia, was distributed exclusively to music channels, Melody and Future TV.
Ragheb’s office was in shock when they discovered that the clip was being aired on the music channel Mazzika, owned by Muhsin.
Ragheb claims that the clip was copied from either Melody or Future, and then aired illegally on Mazzika.
Ragheb stated that he will file a countersuit against Muhsin for his “piracy.”
