Egyptian superstars Amr Diab and Mohamed Hamaki performed in Riyadh season on March 24.
Amr Diab, the global Arab megastar and all-time best-selling Middle Eastern artist moved exclusively to Anghami.
Anghami announced an exclusive partnership that will see the legendary Arab singer’s entire Nay Label audio and video catalog and future releases available only on Anghami.
Amr Diab, the most streamed Arab singer across the world, is Anghami’s #1 artist, with close to 1 billion streams.
This strategic move, which aims to further differentiate Anghami’s vast selection of music and podcasts, will now allow fans to enjoy Amr Diab’s extensive collection of own label hits as well as future albums and music videos, exclusively on Anghami, at no charge.
The announcement comes just weeks after Anghami’s historic listing on the US Nasdaq Stock Market, in which Anghami became the first Arab tech company to become a publicly traded company.
With the acquisition of Nay’s existing repertoire, as well as all of Amr Diab’s upcoming releases, Anghami will strengthen its position as the ultimate destination for lovers of the megastar’s unique composing style and melodic voice – attributes that have taken him to the top of the charts and made him one of the only Arab artists to reach international fame, with his hits performed and loved all around the world.
The deal marks the start of a long and strategic partnership between Diab and Anghami.
“I am very excited about this new venture, which will allow me to better connect with my fans and reach new music lovers around the world. I chose Anghami because it’s a local platform that has made it internationally and is proudly showcasing Arab culture to the world. I share Anghami’s vision in developing strong local talent and making their voice heard globally,” said Amr Diab. “This partnership doesn’t stop here – it is the beginning of a much bigger strategic collaboration with Anghami; together we will make some noise!” Diab previously said.
Amr Diab has achieved wide acclaim by creating a unique style that has been termed ‘Mediterranean music’ due to its blend of Western and Egyptian rhythms.
As a result, he has become extremely popular throughout the Mediterranean as well as the MENA region.
Acknowledged as the first Arab and Middle Eastern artist to start producing high quality music videos, Diab became the first Egyptian and Middle Eastern performer to have a number one hit on the Billboard World Albums Charts.
