Egyptian pop composer Mohamed Saad passed away on Monday at the age of 53 after a long struggle with various diseases that were recently aggravated after he was infected with the coronavirus.
“He enriched the music scene with tens of songs,” said the Society of Authors, Composers, and Music Publishers of the Arab Republic of Egypt (SACERAU), mourning the late composer in a statement.
Born in 1968, Mohamed Saad collaborated with many Arab stars like Nancy Ajram, Ragheb Alama, Hamada Helal, and Mohamed Mohie.
Mohamed Saad composed Helal’s ‘Bahebbek Ya Ommy’, Mohie’s ‘El-Tagroba’ and ‘Zigzag’, and Alama’s ‘Seid El-Ghalein’. His most significant tracks, however, include Ajram’s smash hits ‘Akhasmak Ah’, ‘Ool Tani Keda’, and ‘Si El-Sayed’.
“He could survive blood cancer but couldn’t overcome the COVID-19 that entered his compromised system a month ago,” lyricist and SACERAU board member Fawzi Ibrahim stated emotionally.
