The Egyptian musician Hani Muhanna denied during a videotaped interview with the news site “Fi El Fan”. Rumors that Umm Kulthum used hashish before she went on stage to sing.
Muhanna explained that he had a good relationship with the lady of Arab singing, indicating that she used to tell him with a smile about this accusation that was circulated about her in her life.
Muhanna noted that some dishonest journalists exploited some of the rituals that the late singer performed in a negative way. Where she would sit alone for half an hour to recite the Holy Qur’an before going out to sing in front of the crowd. She even asked her own help to go out and leave her alone.
