Social media users circulated a video from Egyptian pop superstar Amr Diab’s birthday party on Wednesday, during which he appeared with his wife Dina al-Sherbeny, dancing to his newly released song “Al-Farha Elleila” (The Joy Tonight).
This is the first time that Diab and Sherbeny have made a public appearance, after only rumors of their marriage several months ago. The two were seen traveling together on a private jet to Dubai and then appeared together during a summer vacation on the North Coast.
Amr Diab is widely popular among Egyptians and won the World Music Award for best-selling Middle Eastern Artist seven times between 1998 and 2014.
Additionally, Diab topped the iTunes chart when his 2013 and 2014 albums launched.
Guinness World Records listed Diab as the top Arab award-winning musician and the best-selling Middle Eastern musician since 1989.
