Egyptian rap star Wegz and his friends, Marwan Pablo, Marwan Moussa, Abyusif, Lege-Cy and Afroto, are dominating the streaming in Egypt for the year 2021 with quite a competition from pop stars like Amr Diab, Mohamed Hamaki and Hamza Namira, announced leading Swedish music streaming platform Spotify.


This is the second year in a row for Wegz to be named Spotify’s Egypt’s Most Streamed Artist, in addition to having four songs of his among the 10 most-streamed songs in Egypt; ‘Asyad El Soot’ with LZHYMR, ‘Msh Fair’, ‘3afareet El Asphalt’' and ‘Hustla’.

“I can’t explain how happy I am to be Spotify’s top streamed artist in Egypt for the second year in a row. A big thank you to the best fans in the world, wouldn’t be here without you!” the 1998-born rapper Wegz, has commented in Spotify’s press release issued days ago.

Marwan Pablo, a rapper, singer, songwriter, and record producer, came back strongly from his one-year retirement, taking over the most-streamed song list in Egypt with ‘Ghaba’, while Marwan Moussa, who ranked fifth among the most-streamed artists in Egypt, won first place for the most-streamed album ‘Florida’ that contains 13 tracks.

Abyusif is fourth, Lege-Cy is seventh while Afroto has also picked another place for rap as the tenth most streamed artist.

Pop is present for sure, as megastar Amr Diab, dubbed El Hadaba, maintained his position as the second most-streamed artist in Egypt with his album ‘Sahran’ is the second most-streamed album this year.

Hamza Namira made it to the top five with his album ‘Mawloud Sanat 80’, which has become the third most-streamed album in Egypt, while Mohamed Hamaki also made it to the top earning two positions for his albums ‘Ya Fatenny and Kol’ Yom Men Dah.
