The General Federation for Arts Syndicate in Egypt announced on Tuesday rejecting the resignation of veteran singer Hany Shaker as the head of the Musicians Syndicate.
The General Federation denied that latest statements issued by famous Mahragant singer Hassan Shakoush and the violations occurred during his press conference.
In an official statement, the Federation expressed that it observed the latest incidents which are not acceptable by the syndicate.
It asserted that the Federation made two important decisions. The first was referring the whole case of Hassan Shakoush and his statements to investigation.
The second was rejecting the resignation filed by Hany Shaker, in addition, the Federation pledged supporting and backing him due to his value in the history of the Egyptian culture scene, and his achievements as a head of the Musicians Syndicate.
The veteran singer has resigned from his post as Head of the Egyptian Musicians Syndicate.
The acclaimed singer affirmed in televised remarks that he will not backtrack from his decision.
This comes after an altercation took place Monday morning between Said Al-Artest, chief percussionist, and the Syndicate board, at its press conference after he objected to granting the Syndicate membership to Hassan Shakoush.
The Syndicate retorted that it was his right to receive it after he apologized.
Accusations were exchanged between the parties which led to an escalation of shouts and for Shaker to withdraw from the conference, which made Shakoush withdraw as well.
Nadia Mostafa, a member of the board of Musicians’ Syndicate, stated that Shaker did not agree with Shakoush’s return.
In September 2021, Shakoush has appealed to Shaker to reduce the penalty imposed on him after exchanging insults with singer Reda al-Bahrawy.
