Lebanese poet Walid Zureka has accused Egyptian singer Tamer Husni and his producer/business manager Nasr Mahrous of stealing the song “Ya Bint El Aih” (Daughter of?!), which is the title and main song of Tamer’s latest album. Walid claimed that the song is originally his and that Tamer had illegally taken it and made it his.
Walid added that he had presented the song to Tunisian singer Muhammad Al Jabali who has the copyright to it and can prove his stance with legal papers at the Composition Rights Association. It is added that the song is in Muhammad’s latest album, which he released with the production company Alam El Phan.
Sources revealed that Walid and Muhammad intend on taking the matter to court, especially since Tamer overlooked all attempts to have the song removed from his album and disrespecting the rights of other singers.
It is noted that Tamer is going through a stressful time since the sales of his recent album are low and the fact that it was not considered to be up to the high expectations of his fans.
On a different note, a daily Egyptian newspaper recently published racy photographs of Tamer and a young woman passionately kissing inside his car after a concert performance.
Husni, eager to rebuild his image through the eyes of the media seems to be failing. The singer is known for trying to remain in the spotlight by creating false rumors about himself, but his time it may have backfired.
Critics were quick to point out that apparently Husni did not learn from his recent stint in jail. Husni served a six month sentence for forging legal military documents.
Husni claimed that he has reformed, strongly influenced by Islamic preacher Amr Khaled while he was incarcerated, although many have dismissed this possibility after the publication of the photographs.
Attempts were made to contact the singer to comment on the photographs, but there was no response.
Close contacts to the singer said that the young woman in the photographs is an obsessed fan who attacked the singer and began kissing him, cornering Husni in his car with no escape.
