YouTube has removed the song “Laly” by Mohamed Mounir after accusations of plagiarism.
Poet Adel Saber said that the lyrics of the song, which the artist Akram Hosny claims to have written and composed, were stolen from one of his own compositions.
YouTube deleted the song three days after release, but did not specify the reason.
Some believe that deleting the song came as a punishment for the makers of the song; Saber, Hosny and composer Mahmoud al-Mansi.
