Why Amr Diab Deserves Your Respect

Egypt has lost it this past week over a passive agressive feud between Sherine Abdel Wahab and Amr Diab. Abdel Wahab clearly threw major shade at Diab, while he replied as the true immortal we’ve all grown to love. As much as we think this whole thing went out of proportion, but according to his devoted fans, it is justified.

Now there is a reason why people are overly protective and possessive when it comes to Amr Diab. He is our hadaba, the background music to our childhood and the savior after every heart break. Amr Diab has been around for as long as we remember and he is integrated in every memory we have.

Here are just some reasons why almost everyone stood up for Diab this week:


First things first, he is immortal. He is the definition of “50 is the new 20”

He has over 25 albums, so it is basically impossible to not fall in love with at least one of them

He has been there for every 70s, 80s, 90s and even 00’s kid. He healed our hearts, he sang during our birthdays and weddings and he is the musical soundtrack to our lives
