  • Egyptian singer jailed for music video 'inciting debauchery'

This Tuesday, an Egyptian court has sentenced Shaumaa Ahmed, also known as Shyma, to two years in jail for making a music video, in which she "suggestively" ate a banana while wearing lingerie.

The Egyptian singer Shyma has reportedly been jailed over the content of one of her music videos, with one scene in the offending video showing the singer "suggestively" eating a banana.

The director, Mohamed Gamal, was also fined and sentenced to two years in absentia.

"Singer Shyma presents a lesson in depravity to youths", thundered the Youm 7 newspaper in an article after the video was released.

"I didn't imagine all this would happen and that I would be subjected to such a strong attack from everyone", the post read.

In a Facebook post at the time, Shyma apologised for the video and said she had not anticipated the backlash.

Both defendants were found guilty of inciting debauchery.

The video, which was filmed for her song 'I have issues, ' prompted huge controversy in Egypt's largely conservative society - and was widely discussed on TV before prosecutors ordered her arrest.

The crackdown started in late September when several people were detained after holding up rainbow flags at a concert of Lebanese indie rock band Mashrou' Leila in Cairo.

Egyptian authorities under President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi have used wide-ranging morality laws to crack down on a range of artists.

They were also accused of debauchery, harming public morality and other similar charges.
