Lebanese singer Nancy Ajram has recently held her first concert in Morocco, which witnessed an audience of over 100 thousand. The singer was overwhelmed by the massive crowd of people, who came from all around Morocco to watch her in action.
According to the London based Elaph, before the concert, Nancy held a press conference in which she answered questions with complete honesty. The singer denied that she undergoes plastic surgeries on a yearly basis and stressed that she had done it only once, which in her opinion is enough.
Nancy also defended her manner in performing stating that being simple is part of her character and that is why she sings simple songs. Nancy admitted that she can never compare herself to the great Egyptian legend Umm Kalthoum and would never attempt to sing like her.
Nancy also revealed that her goal is not international stardom and she is satisfied with her fans around the Arab world. She added that being able to find success among Arabs is all the conciliation she needs.
On a different note, the announcement of the Egyptian Broadcasting Network that Nancy has been chosen as the sole singer who will be performing at the annual spring festival Sham Al Naseem, has created an outbreak of chaos. The opposition to the decision was mainly over the fact that there are many Egyptian singers who should be given the opportunity to perform at the festival, like prominent singer Hani Shaker and others, who had not performed for the network in over five years.
Officials at the Egyptian network justified their decision by stressing that Nancy has become more popular in Egypt than most Egyptian singers. The administration refused to cancel Nancy’s performance by replacing her, expecting that her concert will prove to be very successful.
