Moroccan singer Samira Said has spent over 40 US dollars on 6 dresses from one of the Italian fashion houses to wear in her new music video. The singer had gone to Italy specifically to buy the dresses which she feels will add to the quality of her new video for the song “Kabiltak Leah” (I Met Your Why) scheduled to be aired on local and satellite TV channels at the time of the release for her upcoming album in the very near future.
According to the London based daily, Al Sharq Al Awsat, Samira stressed that she is keeping the details of her new clip a complete secret, but is positive that once it is out it will fascinate viewers in ways they never thought possible. She added that she feels the video is the best she has filmed so far throughout her singing career and is hopeful of its success.
The singer added that the 6 dresses were specially designed for her to wear in the music video and that she does not feel she went overboard with their cost. She added that she is always willing to do what it takes to better the quality of her videos and music regardless of the cost.
Samira held a spectacular performance on June 29, 2003 that captivated the Arab population in Amsterdam. The evening was a sure success with a very large number of people attending the concert. She sang a huge collection of her new and old songs and was in surprise when the audience sang along with her showing how popular she has become worldwide.
On a different note, after an agreement was finally reached to hold a duet with the international French singer Charles Aznavour, Samira Said was in shock to hear that all preparations that were already underway must come to an end. The final touches on the duet were forced to a halt after Charles had apologized to Samira for being unable to continue their previously planned song due to a sever sickness that suddenly struck him.
Samira was very disappointed over the cancellation of the duet since she was planning to make it a big surprise for all her Arab fans, and was sure it will be up to their satisfaction. Samira added that since Charles will need a long time to recover from his illness, she plans on continuing preparations for her upcoming album, but without the duet.
The singer revealed that she is almost complete with the selection of all the songs for her album, but stressed that she will not reveal what they are to ensure that no one steals them. She added that she has been looking at many different songs in order to help her decide on the new look for her upcoming album.
Samira had hoped that after reaching an agreement with Charles that she can repeat the success she received from her duet with Algerian singer Cheb Mami "Youm Wara Youm" (Day After Day) in the Arab World and Europe. – Albawaba.com
