Egyptian actor and rapper Mohamed Ramadan is celebrating the almost 6 million views his new song Virus has got on YouTube, just four days after its release.

"Trust in Allah, success," he wrote on Facebook in Arabicto promote his new release.

The Egyptian hip hop track plays on the theme of pride, describing how invincible and unchallengeable the rapper is.

His track Number One, which has 90 million views, touches on the same topic, as do Al-Malek and Mafia.

His songs have been watched almost 300 million times in total on YouTube alone.

The 30-year-old is currently finalising a new music video, produced by Synergy, entitled The Moon; a teaser suggests he will re-use the same theme.

His lyrics about his dominance, and his verbal jabs at rivals in his rap, have earned him controversy, as have some of his roles in violent films and TV series, but he remains hugely popular with audiences.

He has faced campaigns against his screen roles, including television series and films such as Abdu Mota, El-Almany, Qalb El-Asad and El-Ostora.

Ramadan is gearing up for his first concert on Friday at Al-Manara International Conference Center in New Cairo, a new military venue.

His previous track Geishna Saab is a song of gratitude to the Egyptian army.

"The superstar Mohamed Ramadan will be performing live on stage for the first time in Egypt, to celebrate the success of his songs with his fans, in the biggest concert in Egypt," the centre stated in their marketing campaigns for the concert.

Ramadan will be on screens during the month of Ramadan this year in new series Zilzal; he also has several new films in the works: Reggalet Hamza and Khott El-Said.

Friday 29 March, 5pm
Al-Manara Center, New Cairo
