It's a sad day in the Egyptian celebosphere. After the tragic news surfacing to the headlines this morning of actor Ibrahim Yusri dying on his birthday yesterday, we now mourn the loss of another gifted artist in the nation.
Abdel-Rahman El-Abnoudi passed away at age 77, reports Al-Ahram Arabic news website. The epic poet lost the battle to an unnamed illness after years of suffering.
In addition to creating great pieces of literature, El-Abnoudi also wrote lyrics for the likes of musical giants Sabah, Warda Al-Jazairia, Mohamed Mounir, and Majida El Roumi.
El-Abnoudi leaves behind wife Nehal Kamal and his two children, Nour and Aya.
