Singer Mostafa Kamel Appointed as Head of Musicians Syndicate
Multidisciplinary artist Mostafa Kamel wins Musicians Syndicate elections, succeeding Hany Shaker.
Famed singer, composer, and producer Mostafa Kamel has just succeeded Hany Shaker as the head of the Musicians Syndicate following elections held earlier today. A total number of 1,800 participated, with Kamel securing a lead of over 400 votes.
The elections follow the resignation of veteran Egyptian singer Hany Shaker last June, a personality who had proven deeply divisive over the years, especially with his sweeping ban of shaabi music and mahraganat.
Kamel is a music composer and producer who worked previously with Egyptian stars, including Amr Diab. The artist is best known for his eclectic and populist music portfolio, including hit song 'Eshta Yaba'.
