Two of Egypt’s top singers, Mohamed Munir and Amr Diab, sang a duet called Al-Qahira. The song, which compares Cairo to a beautiful girl one falls madly in love with, praises the charm of the Egyptian capital. While the song scored thousands of views immediately after its release, and was the most shared and trending on the day it was posted online, it did not receive a warm welcome from a sizable segment of Egyptians, who wondered whose Cairo the song featured.
