A young musician from Yemen, Ahmed Alshaiba, beautifully plucks the strings of his oud - a pear-shaped Middle Eastern string instrument - with covers of some of the world's most popular tunes.

This time, it's a cover of Ed Sheeran's hit song Shape of You.

Alshaiba recently posted his rendition of the popular hit to his Facebook page, garnering over 250,000 views on the social media platform at the time of writing. 

Prior to uploading it to Facebook, Alshaiba posted the cover to YouTube - garnering nearly one million views. 

Some even said it's better than the original!

Calling it a very "mo7taram" cover

Using Ed Sheeran lyrics to compliment Alshaiba

"This gives me life"

Tune in, this is amazingly good!

And this wouldn't be the first time Alshaiba covers one of Ed Sheeran's songs ...
