The singer of ‘Lma3llem’ and ‘Ana Machi Sahel’ is in a beauty competition with the likes of George Clooney, Enrique Iglesias, Ryan Reynolds, Hugh Jackman, and Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson.
Showcasing the Annual Independent Critics List of the 100 Most Beautiful Faces since 1990, TC Candler page posted a picture of Lamjarred on its Instagram page yesterday as a candidate in the competition.

The Moroccan singer is currently living under electronic police surveillance, after being arrested in October under suspicion of sexual assault. He was released from prison in April but was ordered to remain France until his trial.
Lamjarred was prosecuted for similar charges in the United States in 2010. His alleged victim’s lawyer said he fled the US as soon as he posted for bail.
Prior to his recent arrest, Lamjarred had become the most successful Moroccan singer of his generations, with his songs reaching dozens of millions of views on YouTube.
His series of hit songs led him to win the Lebanese music award Murex d’Or twice, in 2016 and 2017.
