Egyptian police on Saturday arrested a pop singer known as Shyma after she appeared in a music video in lingerie while suggestively eating a banana, officials said.
The racy video for her song "I Have Issues" had led to complaints, police officials said, adding she is suspected of "inciting debauchery."
In the video the hitherto little-known singer appears in a mock classroom licking an apple in front of a chalkboard scrawled with "Class #69" and the letters "vag."
It was not immediately clear whether she would be formally charged.
In a Facebook posting on Thursday, Shyma wrote that she had not anticipated the backlash against her video.
"I apologise to all the people who saw the clip and were upset by it and took it in an inappropriate way," she wrote.
"I didn't imagine all this would happen and that I would be subjected to such a strong attack from everyone, as a young singer...who has dreamt from a young age of being a singer," she added.
In 2015, a court jailed a female dancer to a year in prison for "inciting debauchery" in a raunchy music video for a song called "Let Go of My Hand."
