I do not know this, but I feel when Balqees Ahmed Fathi was growing up in Yemen as a little girl she had never she thought would be the number one selling artist in the entire Gulf region. The daughter of a respected lute-player and composer Ahmed Fathi sits on the throne of Gulf music and has so many passionate fans (and haters) all around the area.
I credit her for making Gulf music simple, accessible and hip. She makes self-deprecating music videos and engages her fans and often makes news for her social media interactions. Naturally, she sells well and the young ones love her and her many characters.
Balqees Ahmed Fathi can be often seen in large music festivals around Dubia, Qatar, Bahrain, Oman and in private events and wedding sin Saudi Arabia and Yemen. I love how unlike many of her peers in the Gulf region she is never afraid to have fun and to mock certain things. this is how you maintain your relevant being you, being goofy and all over the space. She is also known for her sport fandom and her commentary on spots and athletes.
