Egyptian singer Tamer Husni has denied circulating rumors that he has gotten engaged.
Tamer’s assistant Wael Abdul Fatah, said in a press release that the news of Tamer’s engagement is a fabrication and Tamer does not know a woman named Sarah Mohammad Abdul Raouf, claimed to be his fiancé.
Wael also said that Tamer hopes to marry in the future, but currently he is devoting all of his efforts to completing his military service, in addition to producing new music.
Rumors claimed that Tamer was preparing for his engagement, to take place during the Muslim holiday Eid Al Adha. Supposedly he had proposed to Sarah right after he was released from prison last month, and the two had been involved in a love affair for the past five years.
Tamer sent over three thousand greetings to his friends, relatives, and fans wishing them a happy Ramadan. He sent another two hundred greeting cards to his close friends in the entertainment world, like actors Mai Izz El Din and Dolly Shahin, and producer Nasr Mahrous.
Tamer’s popularity has increased dramatically after serving six months in jail for forging legal documents to avoid military service.
Tamer was recently offered one million Egyptian pounds to hold a concert during the holy month of Ramadan. One of Egypt’s biggest concert agents made the offer to Tamer, hoping he will agree to hold a performance mid-Ramadan in one of Cairo’s prestigious hotels. It is the highest offer made to any Egyptian or Arab singer, on the condition that it will be Tamer’s first performance after his release, launching him back into stardom.
Tamer has requested the agent give him some time to consider the contract. The singer was released on probation and he must check if he can hold performances, although his attorney said he is permitted to hold musical performances as long as he gets the approval first from the court.
