Friday night at the Carthage Festival in Tunisia was supposed to be graced once again  with a glittering performance by Morocco’s sultriest singer Asma Al Manwar,  but the superstar turned down the prestigious invite, not as a slap in the face but as an honor to all the lies lost by the country’s violence after the assassination of Tunisian revolutionist Mohammad Al Barahimi.
According to Sayidaty.net, Asma was to hold a grand concert on August 2nd in the festival's 49th session.
Looks like Asma’s not the only one who said “No, thanks” to the invite. The festival that was originally only planned to go ‘til August 17th has now been extended to the 20th due to cancellation of earlier performances.
Will anyone even be there to attend? We’ll be watching to see who shows and who blows it off amidst all the unrest.
