Despite her achievements as a singer, Lebanese Najwa Karam has announced that if rumors do not cease regarding her personal and private life she will leave the music industry and put a stop to her singing career. The singer expressed her anger at tabloids who would not leave her alone and keeping writing lies about her life causing her problems on a regular basis.
According to the London based daily, Al Quds Al Arabi, Najwa said in an interview with a sad tone that she is sick and tired of all the rumors that are turning her life into a living hell. She added that she is a singer who devotes her time entirely to always give her audience the best and if people don’t refrain from talking about her she will quit singing and become an ordinary lady of society at which point she could care less what anyone would have to say. She said that it is no one’s business if she marries or divorces, if she has children or not, or any other matter outside her career. She wished that people stuck to talking about her singing and let her life be.
The singer also added that from now on her life will be off limits and closed to anyone wishing to know anything, and forbidding any questions that concern her privacy. She had come along way during the past twelve years to make a name for herself in the music world and has succeeded doing so. She is not about to let all that she has worked for go to waste to satisfy people who are sick in the head and have nothing better to do than to ruin the lives of others and cause them despair.
In January, Karam denied all rumors circulating regarding the lawsuit she filed against her brother Nicola. Najwa said that these rumors hold no ground and they are a sick attempt by people to hurt and interfere with her personal life and career.
Najwa added that she does not give these rumors or all others any second thought let alone allow them to interfere with her life and career. Her goal is to always improve her self giving the best she has to offer.
Rumors said that Najwa had filed a lawsuit against her brother for an incident which happened two years ago when the singer held a concert at one of the hotels in Lebanon and did not receive her wages. Her brother had cheated her out of the money and told her the hotel refused to give them money because she did not abide by the conditions in the agreement.
On a different note, Najwa revealed that she is currently working on a duet "Ikbirna" (We Grew Older) with prominent Lebanese singer Wadi' El Safi, and is also working on a new song which she will release on Valentine Day to lovers everywhere. Najwa expressed that it was always a dream for her to watch El Safi sing saying that the chance to work with him is more than a dream come true and a great honor for her. She added that throughout the past six months of rehearsals and working sessions with El Safi, she could not get over the feeling of great satisfaction as she stood by his side learning more and more from him. –Albawaba.com
