Rabat – Moroccan pop star Saad Lamjarred, who stands accused of rape on two accounts, plans to release his new song titled “Ghzali Ghzali” in Morocco amid mixed reception.
Lamjarred announced that he will be coming to Morocco soon via a post on his official Instagram account on Monday, March 5.
The controversial singer said, “I would like to share with you my interim return to my country Morocco in the coming days.God willing, I will take this opportunity to present my new work, Ghazali Ghazali, from my beloved country.”
While many have welcomed Lamjarred’s anticipated return, others are angry by the news given the outstanding rape accusations against him in the French courts.
The pop singer has been temporarily released on bail under electronic surveillance since April 13, 2017, after spending almost six months at the Marriott Champs Elysées in Paris to face rape and assault charges.
In 2010, Lamjarred was accused of rape for the first time in the US by an American woman.
However, Lamjarred’s supporters far outweigh his opponents, as he remains one of the most successful singers in the Middle East and North Africa.
