Prominent Tunisian singer Saber Riba’e denied circulating rumors that he has a child from the late Tunisian singer Thikra stressing that the news really shocked him. Saber added that this rumor is more harmful and hurtful the late singer’s family, and is a sign of disrespecting her.
According to the Qatar based daily, Al Raya, Saber stressed that his relation with Thikra was based on pure friendship and nothing more. Adding that there had never existed any form of a love relationship between them for such rumors to occur.
Saber criticized such demeaning rumors by tabloids saying that they are willing to write anything such to make money. Saber made his comments during his attendance at the Jordanian Song Festival. During the festival, he advised young Jordanian singers to start looking for a way to convince the public of their talents, warning them from producing low class songs or bold video clips to attract viewers. He asserted that one should study music and acquire it as a knowledge in order to be successful.
Regarding his singing career, he said that he started with different kinds of singing to attract the Arab public, and then concentrated on Tunisian folkloric songs. He considers his second launch in the world to be from Beirut, where he had witnessed a lot of support.
Saber said that he is very happy with his cooperation with Jordanian Director Hassan Du’aibess, who had directed four video clips for him. He added that Hassan has great feelings for songs and a very fertile and wild imagination, and expressed that he is looking forward to working with him in the near future.
Saber did not discard the idea of acting saying that if he is going to act he will certainly take part in a comedy and not a drama. Saber has recently participated in the third Jordanian song festival held in Amman and he sang two of his hit songs “ Sidi Mansour” and “Barsha”. –Albawaba.com
