On the other hand, The Censorship of Works of Art (CACWA) and Musicians Syndicate filed a report against Beka for performing a concert at a famous hotel in Smouha, Alexandria, without obtaining a singing permit from the Syndicate or from the censorship, in defiance to the Syndicate’s ban decision and its head veteran singer Hany Shaker.

The performer released recently a new mahragan song titled “Be careful from Coronavirus“, in clear defiance to the Syndicate’s ban decision. The song is by Beka and Maisara, and by the lyrics of Al-Fajer.

Beka had also sent recently a public video message, saying: “We have done many mahraganat, and made many people happy, and we did not make anyone upset.”

He continued: “Things were going well, I do not know what happened and what changed things and turned them upside down, what did we do?”

It is worth mentioning that Musicians Syndicate has issued a decree banning actor Mohamed Ramadan and Mahraganat singers (electronic-folk) from singing or holding concerts.

Shaker revealed in a phone interview with prominent TV host Ahmed Mousa that the Mahragant singers will no longer be working in Egypt, nor will they be able to obtain a license to perform anywhere.

“This type of genre does not represent Egypt, which is based on promiscuous and immoral lyrics, and that is completely prohibited, as such, the door is closed on it,” Shaker added, “we want real art.”

The decision comes after an incident at a Valentine’s Day concert performed by singer Hassan Shakoush held in Cairo Stadium, during which he sang the lyrics “I drink alcohol and smoke hashish”, which was considered as a violation to principles of the Egyptian society.

The Syndicate had also issued a warning to all nightclubs, tourist facilities, Nile boats, and cafes of any engagement with the Mahraganat performers, and the consequences for the emergence of legal action in case of violation.”
