Young artiste Osama Al-Muhanna attributed his absence from the festivals and artistic concerts held in Kuwait to the presence of ‘cliquishness’ (favoritism and wasta) in the artistic community, “as well as the opportunities provided by the competent authorities, for certain artistes at the expense of other artistes”, and described himself as ‘a nice artiste but caught in the web of an ugly time’, reports Al-Rai daily.

Al-Muhanna told the daily that he is preparing to launch ‘Singal’ songs in the New Year, which includes different styles of singing, in addition to ‘duet’ songs, stressing that the high cost of artistic production is what most worry young artistes today especially in light of the government’s lack of talent.

Al-Muhanna also touched on the possibility of entering the field of representation in the event that he finds a distinguished role that serves him as a singer.

Meanwhile, artiste Shihab Hajia is preparing to travel to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to participate in the comedy play, ‘Al-Masafe’a’, written by Fatima Abu Khamseen, directed by Malik Al-Qallaf and produced by Hayat Al-Fun Entertainment, reports Al- Anba daily.

As part of fun-filled events, the play conveys many social messages beneficial to the community. It will be shown from June 9-12, 2020 at the Qatif Castle Entertainment Theater.

Other cast members include Khaled Bousakhir, Rania Shihab, Sarah Hassan, Jamil Al-Shayeb, Rayan Geeler, Ali Jalwah, Abdel- Hadi Al-Shatry, Myriam Bukhamseen, Hassan Awajan, Mojtaba Al-Safwani and Muhammad Al- Bashir.

In a statement to the daily, Hajia expressed his happiness over meeting Saudis in this work, which he described as a “light artistic meal suitable for all members of the family.”

He said: “I will appear in ‘Al- Masafe’a’ as a person with a family and faces many comic situations.” He hopes everyone will like the play.
