Mohamed Mounir, the Egyptian superstar dubbed “The King” by his loyal fans, will give a concert on Friday 18 October at the Heliopolis Club in Elshorouk City.

The 64-year-old singer, who recently released several singles from his latest album Watan (Homeland), has been less active lately due to health troubles.

Watan is the first album the Nubian singer has released since Ahl El-Arab Wel-Tarab in 2012. However, he has since released a few singles, including Ana Mennek Etaalemt (I Learned from You) and El-Qahera (Cairo), which featured megastar Amr Diab.

He has also starred in TV series like El-Moghanny (The Singer) and appeared in a few ad campaigns.

Mounir began his music career in the 1970s and quickly gained an international reputation, building his fame by collaborating with famous poets and lyricists like Salah Jahin, Abdel-Rahman El-Abnoudy, Fouad Hadda, Ahmed Fouad Negm, Sayed Hegab and Abdel-Rehim Mansour.

In addition to reviving many Nubian folk tunes, Mounir has worked with other big name musicians like Yehia Khalil, Fathy Salama, Hani Shenouda, Ahmed Mounib, Aziz El-Nasser and Wagih Aziz in a variety of genres.

He has also appeared in many films, including director Youssef Chahine's Al-Maseer (Destiny), which competed at the 1997 Cannes Film Festival.
