Lebanese living legend Sabbah has recently joined numerous artists and politicians in Lebanon and the Arab world through a new silicon-made statue that holds the number 50 in Ga’eita museum. The museum, located in Beirut, contains many statues of celebrities from Lebanon and the Arab world. The new statue of Sabah has been designed and programmed to sing one of Sabah’s famous songs for sixty seconds.
Sabah's replica statue was dressed in one of her genuine dresses. The blue dress was given to the museum by Sabah who said she wore that dress in on of Be'albak festivals. In addition to the statue of Sabah, the museum contains many celebrity personalities like president of Lebanon, king of Jordan, Egyptian president, George Bush, Bill Clinton and many others.
Sabah has recently turned down a generous gesture from Lebanese singer, who offered to buy her an apartment to live in as a way of showing his respect and admiration for her. Sabah kindly turned down his offer stressing that she is financially capable of buying an apartment, but she rather reside in her hotel suit instead, where the service is taken care of.
Sabah revealed that she is currently living a peaceful life and plans on traveling to Egypt to attend an award ceremony, where she will be honored for her long journey in the entertainment world. Sabah stressed that she wishes people, who are spreading rumors of her being bankrupt, would leave her alone and let her enjoy living her life.
Sabah came back to Lebanon after spending seven months in the USA, and is now residing at the Comfort Hotel in Hazmieh district in the Lebanese capital Beirut. Sabah is a singing legend in the Arab world and her singing career went from one success to another during the past sixty years.
Sabah denied recent rumors that she sold her house because she was facing financial problems and added that she did so to help other people in more need of money than her, including her daughter Huwaida who lives in America. She added that another reason was the fact that the apartment was too big for her and needed large sums of money to keep it. – Albawaba.com
