Portrait
Ashrafieh's Nancy Ajram among the most powerfull Arab women

Did you know that Nancy Ajram was born in Ashrafieh? The Lebanese singer who sang Ah w Noss and Enta Eih was ranked 65th on the CEO Middle East magazine’s 100 Most powerful Arab Women 2012 list, released on March 5.

This is the second edition of this “Top 100”. This list ranks women “according to the number of people and lives they have had an impact on” and focuses on 10 industry sectors.

One must say that Nancy Ajram’s career is exemplary. Born in Ashrafieh 29 years ago, she is now married and a happy mother of two little girls (Mila, 3 years old and Ella, 1 year old). Already in 2001, she was listed by the American weekly magazine Newsweek as one of the most influential singers of the Arab world.

Nancy Ajram has released seven albums to date (the first, Mihtagalak was released in 1998) and has topped on multiple occasions charts all over the region. She is the youngest singer in 2003 to have topped the charts both in Lebanon and Egypt for her album (Ya Salam) and her single (Akhasmak Ah, on this same album). Knowing Egypt is the first market for Arabic music, this is hardly inconsequential.

It is by taking part in various singing contests on Television (such as Noujoum al Fan on Future TV) that Nancy Ajram started her career.

She then held many titles in her field. Besides being crowned “Best Arab singer” by the magazine Zahrat al Khalij in 2004, she was named for three years in a row “Most Popular Singer in the Arab World” in 2004, 2005 and 2006 at the Murex d’Or Awards in Beirut.

She reached international recognition in 2008 when she was named “World’s Best-Selling Middle Eastern Artist” at the World Music Awards in Monaco.

It is thus no wonder that she has been chosen in 2010 to sing the FIFA World Cup song in South Africa along with Kanaan.

It is also no surprise that Coca-Cola chose her to be the ambassador of the brand for the Middle-East. So did the jeweler Damas or the Motor Company Nissan, for the Micra. Since a few years, Nancy Ajram’s face is plastered on advertising boards in all the big cities of the Middle-East, starting with Beyrouth.
