Lebanese superstar Ragheb Alama has denied circulating rumors that he intends to pair up with controversial Lebanese singer Maria to sing a duet.
The singer’s managing office released a statement denying the rumor, adding that the only thing that had connected Ragheb to Maria was a recent concert in which both had performed.
Ragheb’s office added that the two performing at the same concert does not necessarily imply they will sing a duet, in addition to the fact that Ragheb does not have the time or the desire to pair up with another singer at the moment, reported the London based Elaph.
Ragheb will be holding a concert in the capital of Mauritania on October 1, alongside a popular female Mauritanian singer. It is the first time in Arab music history that a concert of this nature will be held in the capital, and a huge advertising campaign has been launched for the event under the title of “Lailet Eid” (A Holiday Night.)
A number of Mauritanian citizens have expressed their excitement, and stated that they are very grateful to Ragheb for holding the concert, despite the unfortunate events their country has recently faced.
Ragheb stated that he is honored to perform in Mauritania, and he hopes that the overturn of power that occurred less than a month ago will come to a resolution.
