Celebrated Lebanese crooner Fadl Shaker, who has recently decided to quit singing because it is “haram” or forbidden in Islam, appears to be making a comeback.
According to the official website for Abu Dhabi Music Festival, Shaker will perform in the Gulf emirate on April 6 at the Emirates Palace hotel. There was no comment by the prominent singer on the report published by the website.
Shaker, 33, has recently criticized a number of Lebanese and Arab singers, including veteran Algerian singer Warda, whom he urged to quit singing and don the hijab.
Shaker who has a lot of fans across the Arab World, had said that his decision to quit singing was not easy and that it took him four years to conclude his own personal verdict.
The Lebanese singer began his musical career at the age of 13.
