A video in which star Nawal Al Kuwaitiyeh drives her car in the streets of Riyadh two days ago has set social media on storm, as it was filmed two days before driving was legalized for women in the Kingdom. Does this make Nawal the first woman to drive in Saudi Arabia's history?

The video was posted by producer Salem Al Hindi to his Snapchat account and it was taken last Friday after Nawal's concert in "King Fahed centre".

In the video Al Hindi says "Congratulations for the successful concert and today you are the first Kuwaiti woman that drives in Riyadh"

The Kuwaiti star replied "The concert was nice and the audience was even better than the expectations... Driving in Riyadh is great... You deserve it... I am happy for them... this is their most simple right."

From her side, Syrian singer Assala commented on the video with a tweet in which she reposted the video and wrote "You deserve to enter history gorgeous!"
