If it's more fame Tunisian singer Hanan al Zughlami - better known by her stage name "Tunisian Naglaa" - was looking for, then her wish has been granted, but once again for totally the wrong reasons!

The Tunisian Musicians Syndicate has banned Naglaa from working in her home country, while warning anyone thinking of collaborating with the artist that legal action will be taken against them.

What's she done this time?

Naglaa has been accused of promoting vice and immorality in the overly sexual and scandalous music video for her single "La Ykhebbesh Wala Ydebbish."

If you haven't seen it yet, then you really have to. Right now. Seriously. 

The Syndicate stressed that the video's sexually-suggestive nature and obscene lyrics are unbefitting of the level of the Tunisian song.

But how did the diva, famous for her other disreputable single "The Horse," respond to them?

She made a valid point by pointing out that the Syndicate accepted her membership while being fully aware of who she was and the type of music (referring to "The Horse") that shot her to fame.

Naglaa added that the Syndicate are using her name as "free publicity for their organisation."

Meanwhile, Naglaa described Mostafa al Dallaji, the lyricist/composer behind the song, as a "hypocrite" for apologising to the Syndicate.

She revealed that Dallaji was present during the filming of the video and even directed some of its choreography.

Now that you're in the loop, what do ya think?
