Lebanese singer Nancy Ajram has begun shooting a new music video for her song “Ma Feesh Hajeh” (There is Nothing), which is featured in her upcoming album. Nancy’s new video is being filmed in the old town of Seeda in Lebanon amidst extensive security, which created worry among inhabitants of the town, who feared that something unusual is taking place.
According to the London based daily Al Sharq Al Awsat, once the townspeople realized that what was going on was merely a filming of a clip for Nancy, they gathered in large crowds eagerly asking for autographs and photos by the singer. Director Nadine Labky, who has directed all of Nancy’s previous videos, naturally directs the video.
In the clip, Nancy portrays the role of a simple village girl, in which she is wearing no makeup to appear natural. The song is part of the new album, which features 10 new songs and is scheduled to be released in the near future.
Ajram has turned down an offer for one million dollars to act in a television commercial for one of the food production companies. Nancy’s refusal for the offer comes from the fact that she refuses to accept any offer that does not relate to singing, stressing that she wants to focus her efforts on her music career only.
Nancy had also refused several offers to star in different films for the same reasons. Nancy added that she is postponing the idea of acting in Egyptian films for another two years, or until she is certain she has mastered the Egyptian accent.
Nancy is putting last touches on her new album which had been described by her business manager Jiji Lamara as “exceptional work” and many famous composers and poets participated in the album like Tark Abu Joudeh, Mohammed Raheem, Tarek Madkoor, and others. –Albawaba.com
