Egypt’s Muscian Union responding to the video on Friday barred the singer from performing and as well summoned her for questioning.

Samir Sabry, a pro-government lawyer with reputation for moral watch lodged a complaint against the Egyptian singer for insulting Egypt and inviting suspicious groups to interfere with the country’s affair.

The singer was quoted saying that the Nile was polluted but she later apologized terming it as a bad joke.
