On being on The Voice
I’ve always wanted to reach a bigger audience and actually have my own fans; this I could never have achieved without being a part of a very special program like The Voice. Participating in The Voice was a very unique experience to me, especially that it is one of the most-watched shows when it comes to presenting real talents. Joining the competition eased lots of obstacles that I would have faced in my career. For example, if I had a popularity of 20% before The Voice I would say it is now 80% after the show and this is more than enough for me.
On support from the talent machine
There wasn’t any support offered from the program’s administration, however I took a lot of advice from the great trainers especially Saber El Robae and Assi El Hilani whom I joined in a concert recently and am working on a project with.
On where he is now
I released two songs recently: “Kan yama Kan” and “Mahma Byehsali”. During the coming period, I will be trying to prepare my first album, and I hope it will be an enjoyable experience and meet the expectation of the fans and prospect listeners.
