According to Youm7, the pop star was asked by a fan to sing “Mashrebtesh Men Nilha” — a patriotic song that links loving Egypt to drinking from its Nile river. In true Sherine fashion, however, the 37-year-old Egyptian singer replied with, “Drinking from the Nile will get me bilharzia.”
Sherine didn’t stop with that comment, she continued to say, “Evian water is better.”
Fans were angered by her comments and took to Twitter to create the hashtag, #PeopleWhoDrinkFromTheNileWontListenToSherine. Below are some of the not-so-nice tweets from fans.
According to Masrawy, Sherine has been banned to perform in Egypt by The Syndicate of Musical Professions, following the comment she gave during her concert in Lebanon.
