Syrian singer Samo Zain held a press conference at the luxurious Four Seasons hotel in Beirut to launch his latest album “Zay Ay Tinain” (Like any Two).
During the conference, Samo said that he had previously hoped to have Lebanese diva Haifa Wehbe star in his music video for the single “Al Qittah” (The Cat), but the project was never implemented and the song was never filmed as a music video to begin with. He cheekily said that Haifa will always symbolize a beautiful cat in his eyes. Whatever rocks your boat Samo!
According to Sayidaty.net, Samo arrived to the conference fashionably late – 20 minutes to be precise – where members of the press were waiting for his arrival. The overall atmosphere was very friendly and he answered the majority of questions thrown by journalists at him.
Samo had specifically wanted his comeback to the music scene, and the launch of his new album, to happen in Lebanon.
“I know I have been absent from the music scene for some time now. Many have asked where I’d gone to and where my albums that I had released were at, but my albums are still in stores and are witnessing a great success. The real issue lies within the production company ‘Mazzika,’ but I’m now very optimistic with my new album and expect great things to come out of it.”
As for the rumored arguments between him and Egyptian superstar Tamer Hosny, Samo expressed his awe at such claims and stressed that he and Tamer are the closest of buds and all that has been said is untrue.
He said: “I think of my fans and the millions of members on my Facebook page, and I think of Tamer and his important place in the entertainment scene. So when him and I read about those rumors we did not care to give them much thought at all.”
