Controversial Egyptian singer Ruby has decided to enter the small screen for the first time in the upcoming musical television drama “Ba’et Al Ward” (Flower Girl). Ruby is scheduled to start filming scenes this month under the direction of her business manager Sharif Sabri.
The television drama revolves around the success story of a young woman, who while selling flowers on the street falls in love with a director. He eventually casts her as a dancer in his performances, making her a star.
Ruby recently released her latest music video “Ib’a Abilni” (Meet Me), under the direction of Sharif, which many consider to be her most provocative clip. Throughout the clip Ruby dons revealing costumes resembling the garb worn during the time of the ancient Pharaohs, and dances in a provocative manner. Critics have accused Ruby and her business manager of going over the line by portraying Egyptian heritage in such a manner, but the singer argues she has not presented anything other than her usual style.
Per Sharif’s request, Ruby is taking private voice lessons to strengthen her singing voice for live performances, which will enhance her career and strengthen her relationship with her fans.
Also, Sabri has denied circulating rumors of a duet between Ruby and Lebanese singer Maria. Sharif regards such rumors as an attempt to deflate the significant fame that Ruby has achieved, and are created by jealous people in the media.
