Thirty-year old Lebanese singer Nawal al Zughbi was recently forced to re-montage her latest music video, deleting few scenes in response to accusations saying that the video holds many seductive scenes.
The daily Akhbar al Yom newspaper has reported that several Arab Gulf channels refused to show Zughbi's latest "Elli Tmanetoh" (The Person I Wished For) video, due to objections filed by several censorship parties in Gulf Televisions, claiming that the video holds several indecent dances and seductive implications.
Zughbi, on her part, refused to comment on the news but confirmed that she is working along with the director on deleting few scenes from the video in order to be showed on all Gulf TV channels.
In another incident, the daily Bayan newspaper reported yesterday that Dubai has witnessed a "shameful" act from the singer al Zughbi in one of the record stores, as one of her bodyguards forced several news reporters out of the store.
Though several critics slammed the album in the awake of its release, saying that it marked a great failure in both Egypt and Lebanon, Zughbi was called to sign her latest album in Dubai, to kick off a promotion tour in all the Arab Gulf states. – Albawaba.com
