Few years back, Rikia Magha got a lot of fans from appearing on the Arab Idol and being a wonderful Moroccan pop delight. Few hit later, now she is making the transition to join a professional production company. Her contract was just signed to work under the Fayez Al Saeed studio under his supervision. The Emirate hit-maker, music producer, singer has elevated Khaleeji pop to a higher ground, making it hip and appealing to even stars who are not from the region.
Rikia has the talent to join his crew, but now they have to find the new material that works for Rikia and frankly, the Gulf market has always been welcoming to pop divas from the West. The new sub-genre of Khaliji Maghrib infusion has been dominated in recent years and Fayez played a role in shaping it. Rikia’s last hit “Mayhemmak” has already shown that she has the star power, the looks and the will to join the big league. Fayez’s group will also oversee Rikia’s management and concert booking. Rikia has already performed a song which was composed by Fayez Al Saeed. Another thing Rikia is good at is her social media profile where she engages her fans and builds her fan base organically.
I think I like Fayez’s work and he has done great things for many young artists, I hope this collaboration brings us new material that gives the Arab music market a shot in the arms.
