Agram is my only friend, says Wahbi
Lebanese singer Haifa Wahbi said friendship within the entertainment scene is a rarity, adding that making friends with other singers isn’t a requirement, even if they were from the same country.
Nevertheless, she expressed her admiration for compatriot Nancy Agram and said that she was the only exception.
“Nancy and I are very good friends and we’re always connected. When I send her a shout-out in any of the interviews I do, she makes sure to call me personally to thank me, and vice versa,” Wahbi was quoted as saying by MBC’s official Web site.
“All these reports about bad feelings between us are not true. What’s true is that we’re competitors, but in an honorable way,” she added.
Meanwhile, Wahbi said she had to postpone her wedding until after the war in Gaza.
