Mohammed Abdu Othman Al A'aseere (Arabic: محمد عبده عثمان العسيري, born June 12, 1949), more commonly known as Mohammed Abdu or Mohamed Abdo (he's also known as Mohammed Abdou, Mohammad Abdu and several other (misspelled) aliases), is an Arabic language singer and composer from Saudi Arabia. He was born June 12, 1948 in a city called Aldarb in the Jaizan area. His father passed away when he was just three years old and he has lived most of his childhood in an orphan's center. He was able to enter an Institute specializing in industrial and shipbuilding in a bid to achieve his dream of becoming a sailor just like his father, but he also was fond of art and singing.
The artist began his music career in the beginning of the sixties (1961). He entered the world of singing at an early age, only a student at the Institute of industrial Jeddah which he graduated from in 1963. From then he was taken on a mission to Italy for the shipbuilding industry. The flight changed from Rome to Beirut, from building ships to a music career. This was all done through Abbas Faiq Ghazzawi who discovered Mohammed Abdu when he sang in radio show (Baba Abbas) in 1960.
He is currently signed with Rotana and Sot AlJazirah. He has been described as "The Artist of Arabs" and an "esteemed Saudi singer."
