Composer Rami Sabri has denied rumors that Egyptian singer Shireen Abdul Wahab will postpone the release of her upcoming album due to a legal dispute with her production company.
Rami stressed that the album is still in the production phase and needs more time than originally anticipated for completion. Shireen is still recording the songs for the album, he added, three of which were composed by Rami.
Shireen filed a lawsuit against her record producer, Nasr Mahrous, demanding to break the contract between them. Shireen claims that Nasr only produces one album for her every two years, a matter that negatively affects her career and is against the stipulations of their contract, which clearly states he must produce an album for her, yearly.
Shireen explained that she must present a new music style in order to maintain her career, and Mahrous has failed to offer her any of the advantages provided to other singers by different production companies. Even if the court does not grant her permission, Shireen asserted that she will sever the contract between them.
Shireen denies that she has received attractive offers from other production companies or that there is someone influencing her position. She stressed that if there was another company she intends to sign with, they would have paid the fees required to break her contract, ending the whole dilemma.
