Egyptian Musicians Syndicate establishes new measures to review foreign singers

The official spokesperson for the Egyptian Musicians Syndicate, Mohamed Abdullah, announced new measures that the syndicate will follow after canceling US rapper Travis Scott’s concert in Egypt, which was scheduled to be held on Friday at the pyramids.

State-owned newspaper Al-Ahram quoted Abdullah as saying that the head of the syndicate Mostafa Kamel, “Issued a decision to set a budget for hiring new youth who will provide an information technology unit for concerts to contract international singers. This unit will bring together young university graduates who speak many languages to search and scrutinize any foreign artist.”

The Musical Professions Syndicate earlier in June announced the cancellation of Scott’s concert.

In an official statement it cited its concerns over ‘strange rituals’ performed at Scott’s concerts, which they called inconsistent with Egyptian values.

The company organizing Travis Scott’s concert apologized to the international artist’s fans, who had booked all the tickets immediately after they were shown on the company’s website.

The organizing company added in an official statement that it tried various ways to hold the concert, which was scheduled to be one of the largest entertainment shows in the Middle East, but faced difficulties leading to its cancellation.

The statement assured that the concert’s tickets will be refunded to fans.

Controversy broke out on social media as many accused Scott of holding masonic practices during his concerts, which he denied in a statement.
