Somaya Darwish, alias Somaya, is an Egyptian upcoming pop singer who was born on April 4th, 1989, in Cairo, Egypt.
She started her career when she was only 17. Her debut album featured songs with different musical styles of Egypt, including Pop, Shaabi, Tarrab Fusions and many others. In August 2009, she released her new album entitled “Mesh Sahla”.
After releasing her great album “Ba’et Betwahashny”, her image and musical style became connected to Sherine, to be even nicknamed as Sherine’s Copy Cat, but Somaya denied all talks, stating that she had her own style and that she was not Sherine’s copy.
Anyway, Somaya has proved her being different from Sherine with her two albums which don’t have to do so much with Sherine’s work.
Similarity between the voices of both singers cannot be denied, but Somaya’s musical style, especially in her second album is much more distinguished from Sherine’s work.
