An Egyptian court has sentenced singer, Laila Amer, to two years in jail over the racy music video to her song "Bos Ommak" (Look what your mother did,) Al Arabiya reported.
The singer was handed her sentence during a court session held in a Giza misdemeanor court on Tuesday.
The news comes weeks after Amer was investigated, arrested and charged with "inciting debauchery and immorality," for releasing the song, which was set to feature in an upcoming Egyptian film called "Naked Wire."
While the music video did anger people, it was the tune's featuring of a pun on an offensive Arabic swear word that eventually garnered the most backlash, even leading the country's Syndicate for Musicians to expel the singer from the organization.
Even though Amer incessantly denied all charges against her, it did little to help her case.
The latest news is making the rounds online
While some were all for the decision to imprison the singer
"So what, she deserves this."
Others stood against it
"Egyptian courts and government have lost the plot"
Not the first time this happens in Egypt
This certainly isn't the first time a singer faces prosecution over a controversial performance or release.
Just last month, two Egyptian male singers, Ahmad Nafae and Mahmoud Juma, were sentenced to two years in jail over an online music video titled "Zokko Zakka" (Give it a Push.)
The duo were accused of making sexual innuendos in the popular song which was released in 2016.
Earlier last year, an Egyptian court also sentenced singer Shimaa Ahmad, known as Shyma, to two years in jail over the racy music video of her song "I have issues."
Following a quick trial, the 25-year-old singer was found guilty of inciting debauchery and publishing an indecent film.
The sentence came weeks after Ahmad was arrested and accused of committing a “shameful act in public."
