A singer in Egypt was just sentenced to 2 years in jail for apparently, “inciting debauchery” as she ate a banana in her underwear during one of her music videos.
25-year-old singer, Shaimaa Ahmed, known as Shyma triggered the Islamic people of Egypt after her music video “I Have Issues,” seemed too sexually suggestive.
In her Youtube video which has millions of views, Shyma was in her bra eating a banana and pouring milk on herself.
She posted on Facebook shortly after outrage ensued, “My apologies to all people who watched the video and did not like it because they think it’s inappropriate.”
“I did not expect such a harsh backlash from people. As a singer, I only sung the song and I do not have any knowledge and understanding in direction and many other things.”
