The Verstile Alaa Wardi Invades Turkey @AlaaWardi @tarkan

The internet boy, the first viral video guy in the Middle East strikes again with a new acoustic song. Alaa Wardi sang in Arabic at first, then English, Hindi followed suit and now he goes for Turkish. Wardi is doing a cover for a Turkish hit by the prince of pop Tarkan.

It's a typical Wardi fashion, all sounds made by voice, mouth and body only! Of course they were all processed to reach their best quality, but no musical instruments were used. Some company need to sign Alaa Wardi and start making money off his talent. It's all in the marketing. Alaa is a celebrity and has traveled around the world doing a number of concerts and engagements.

I love his cover, but what surprises him his vocal performance and his command of the Turkish language. It flows well, and sounds authentic with a lot of passion.

His choice is Şıkıdım, check it out...I hope Tarkan finds this video helpful in spreading his good name. Alaa is branching out from Arabia into new territories--which is clever as the internet knows no boundaries.

Family Court Forces Playboy Ahmed Ezz To Take DNA Test

Finally, it took them a year to issue this ruling by an Egyptian court in the city of Nasir has ruled that Egyptian actor Ahmed Ezz must submit to a DNA test to decide weather he is the father of the two lovely twins whose mother is actress Zeina.

For a long time now, Zeina has been making a claim that the handsome heartthrob is the father of her twins who were born in the States more than a year ago. Shit face Ahmed Ezz is not man enough to admit that they are his children indeed. He talked publicly about this and so far has refused to take the paternity test.

Now, we do not know what will come out of this, but whatever happens Ezz would lose. It's awkward really--he is either saying that Zeina the mother of his children is a whore, or that he does not want kids--flashback they are already here. If he knew he was right, why would he not take the test? Why would he here a shark attorney that has been attacking Ms. Zeina?

The next hearing is set for January 15th, 2015, by then the DNA test would have been conducted. Zeina is thrilled with this ruling, on her Instagram, she shared a verse from the Quran. "I am grateful to God, everyone congratulate me and thank you all for standing by my side,."

The actress claims that Ezz was overjoyed when they found out she was pregnant with his twins. That’s when they apparently agreed to officially and publicly tie the knot, but Ezz backed out from the idea later. Ahmed denies the twins are his.

It’s difficult to know who to trust in this two-sided baby drama, since Zeina’s lawyer, Assem Qandil, told Al Hayat TV that Ezz had secretly married to Egyptian singer Angham years ago, something that Ezz had also denied at the time.

Tamer Hosny Is The Butt of Army Jokes #Egypt @tamerhosny


Poor Tamer Hosny, the internet seems to love making fun of him. After the tragic events in the Sinai and the reported death of Egyptian soldiers. The hit-maker Tamer Hosny wrote some poetic lines for the them, and he dubbed himself as a fierce "soldier" I do not fear death...his lines read.

But the internet is not letting us forget that Tamer Hosny forged official documents to try to get out of his army service. He was eventually caught and sentenced to prion--he did serve time for dodging the draft. Military service is mandatory in Egypt.

Many sarcastic comments poured in,

  1. You talk about the army, and you avoided serving in it
  2. I am one who forged official papers to run away from the army, I am Tamer Hosny
  3. If you are a soldier, why would you try to dodge serving in it?

This Jerusalemite Says "Mashi" For The Sweet Revenge @muradswaity

The charming Palestinian pop artist Murad Swaity released a new track  "Mashi" The song has been mastered and mixed by none but Tony Haddad--the producer with the golden touch. It's a revenge song, a thug of war song when lovers break apart and things are sour. Murad is upbeat as he goes to war on his ex in this catchy single.

Murad Swaity shot to fame in 2008 when he made waves by appearing on a singing completion program (Super Star). This is a Lebanese/Palestinian/Jordanian/Syrian song that will air on radios in those countries. The collaboration behind this song is fresh to Murad who got to work with renounced composer Fadel Suliman (Nassif Zaytoun, Melhim Zain, Marwan El Shami) with many hits.

Now, this is not angry song with so much rage, but a calculated rage in moderation. It's still not too dark, but Murad promises to bring tears to his ex lover's eyes

The son of Jerusalem has traveled far. This time, we are all looking toward the holy city as extremists of the Jewish faith terrorist a people and hold them back from praying.
