Biography

Shereen Abdul Wahhab, (Arabic: شيرين عبد الوهاب, also credited as Shereen Ahmed) is an singer and actress, born October 10, 1980 in Cairo. She is popularly known simply as Shereen شيرين (aka Sherine, Sherin). She started her musical career with her successful debut single, “Ah Ya Leil”.

Born in Cairo, Shereen is a graduate of a prominent Egyptian music academy. Upon graduating, she sought a record company to represent her and manage her musical career. She met up with Free Music Productions’ owner and manager Nasr Mahrous. Mahrous signed and released a debut album with fellow singer Tamer Hosny. The album included solo singles, as well as duets. Titled Free Mix 3, it is one of the mix-tapes Mahrous usually produces but was exclusively for these two artists. Although Shereen was a new artist with Free Music, Tamer had signed with Mahrous earlier.

The album included Shereen’s debut single, “Ah Ya Leil”, which garnered huge success in Egypt and throughout the Middle East. Critics and audience were impressed with Shereen’s vocal abilities, but wanted her to revamp her image. The song included local musical styles from traditional Egyptian voice techniques to usage of traditional Egyptian music instruments common to the genre. Hosny’s single, along with the music video, were also received very well and this mixtape was considered a milestone in Free Music’s short history.
