Shortly after young Lebanese singer Nancy Ajram started her singing career, many newspapers and cultured people started attacking her and considering her as one of the main reasons of deteriorated Arab culture and taste. Some even went as far as accusing her to be a major part of the western conspiracy against Arab culture and a major tool to destroy it.
Critics believe that at this critical stage, the whole nation is suffering fierce attacks and outer threats and don’t need any new internal threat to start eating away the bones of the nation like moth.
Nancy has challenged businessmen by appearing in her latest video clip [Ah wi Nos] washing her clothes using a traditional wash-bowl. This action ignored all the up to date washing appliances from a very famous brands like Sony, Panasonic, and LG, which many believe is a technique to deliberately look more seductive and sexy!
Even thought Nancy is a real gifted singer, she was attacked by her fellow colleagues accusing her of performing a cheap show of seductive dancing. She even got several prizes that prove that our musical originality and personality has been lost forever. The only thing that would top it all is giving Nancy the prize of the Golden wash-bowl!
As a conclusion the emergence of such phenomenon as Nancizm and Haifacizm has risen to the surface along with many other examples in the Lebanese communities. The reason is very obvious that the Lebanese community is open minded and could absorb such trends and consider it normal due to the fast rhythm of life. Because if this business faced any rejection by society then we will not see great talents like Nancy, Haifa, Superstar, Star Academy, and Miss Lebanon. If Lebanese society rejected these phenomenon’s then many satellite channels will go out of business and the nation will be deprived of the Pepsi ad by Alissa and the refrigerators ad by Amal Hijazi and the wash-bowl by Nancy Ajram! -Albawaba.com
