Wassouf, who was born on December 23, 1961, has a significantly large audience of fans in the Arab world and abroad.

He began singing at the age of 10 in his hometown Kafroun and was discovered two years later by his first manager and producer George Yazbeck at a wedding.

At the age of 19, the singer became famous after appearing on the Lebanese show “Studio El Fan” in 1980.

He is one of the most successful Arab singers selling over 60 million records worldwide.

In 2021, a documentary titled “Masirati” (My Journey) highlighted the iconic musician’s career-defining moments and secrets he has never uncovered before.
