Lebanese star Najwa Karam wished she was still dreaming after waking up on Tuesday morning to the news that her brother is dead.
Nicola Karam sadly passed away of a sudden heart attack at 6am (Beirut local time) today. He was only 58-years-old.
Annahar reported that Nicola underwent heart surgery just a week ago, but he had to be taken to hospital after feeling acute pain in his chest this morning.
Nicola was resuscitated at the hospital, where his heart worked for 15 minutes, before having a second heart attack that led to his demise.
Thousands of the singer's fans sent her messages of support and condolences on social media.
Meanwhile, many famous faces from the Arab celebrity world - including Nancy Ajram, Elissa, Nadine el Rassi, Nicole Saba and more - grieved with Najwa by tweeting her messages of love and support.
Our deepest condolences go out to you and your family, Najwa.
