#WaraElMazzika: Perrie, Felukah, Shahd El Shaarawy, and Xena El Shazly on the Challenges of Being a Female Artist in the Middle East

For this edition of #WaraElMazzika, we had an exciting talk with four promising young rising stars: Perrie, Felukah, Shahd El Shaarawy, and Xena El Shazly!

These amazingly talented ladies are all participating and representing Egypt in Spotify’s latest Sawtik initiative. The initiative aims to support and empower young Arab female singers who face a lot of challenges and obstacles in their careers, in addition to not having equal opportunities. This chitchat concludes our series of interviews to highlight the initiative after we talked with Spotify’s very own Malikah Lynn and the iconic superstar Latifa.

The four girls are all super talented, and each has her own unique style. We asked the four rising stars the same questions and caught their thoughts on why they joined the initiative, the challenges that they face in their careers, and much more.

WE SAID THIS: Check out our interview with the legendary artist and Godmother of the Sawtik initiative, Latifa!
