Madame Tussauds Dubai has unveiled the wax figure of the legendary Arab artist, Majid Al Mohandis, adding another prominent celebrity to its star-studded lineup.
The grand revelation unfolded at a captivating 'side-by-side' event followed by a meet and greet with the press, held within Madame Tussauds Dubai at Bluewaters.
The Saudi-Iraqi singer and composer, Majid studied Engineering in Baghdad, hence the nickname “Al Mohandis” which means “the engineer” in Arabic has been lovingly bestowed upon him by his fans. The prolific singer has also earned himself the titles of “the Prince” and “Voice of a Diamond” and ''the Engineer of the Arabic song” due to his talent and success in the Arab world.
Majid Al Mohandis is known for his soulful voice and his music that is characterised by its emotional depth and powerful vocals for over 20 years. Majid has won various awards, smashed chart records, and sold out stadiums for decades. He has been featured in GQ men of the year in 2022 as one of the legendary Arab singers. Majid also believes in and supports young talent - he co-hosted the show, Saudi Idol, in 2022 with the intent to show the world how young Saudis have significant talent that is overlooked. He has much yet to achieve, and there are no signs of slowing down just yet.
The decision to immortalise him in wax was met with overwhelming enthusiasm from his dedicated fan base, who have eagerly awaited this moment. At this remarkable gathering, Majid Al Mohandis stood face to face with his wax figure, a moment filled with excitement and shared with media representatives and influential personalities.
