It’s A Cat! It’s A Plane! It’s Mekawy



It’s a cat! It’s a plane! It’s Mekawy, ladies and gents! One of Cairo’s hottest names at the moment. We first came to know him as the insane comedian on El Mohayesoon TV show a few Ramadans ago. Mekawy is currently the co-founder of Double Trouble agency and a big shot media guru aka. influencer. We decided to take Mekawy out to Coco to ask him about a few things that a lot of peeps have been curious to know. So, let’s go then!

Mekkawy Interview with Whats up Cairo

We started by of course, the most obvious question in interview history; “Mekawy, are you single?” and yes, groupies, he is indeed a bachelor, so calm down! We then found the audacity to ask him if he’d ever date a fan and he replied that although a lot of people would say no, but he definitely wouldn’t mind; he stated “Law mozza yeb2a leih la2?” A little too superficial, dude? but alright, definitely not rolling my eyes at you…

Turning up the heat a bit, we asked him about what attracts him the most in a woman, and unfortunately I cannot quite state his answer, but let’s just say that it has something to do with rear ends…We then asked him about the best way a woman could get his attention and again, with extreme class, he replied “She could either scream or take off her clothes”. I mean, whatever works for you, man. *cough sexist cough*.

Moving on, we asked Mekawy about the bravest thing he’s ever done and of course, El Mohayesoon had to be brought up! He told us about the time he had to take a shower in a public fountain and that other time that Amr Mcgyver set him on fire for entertainment purposes!

Next question was about the thing that makes him happiest and he gave it no second thought when he immediately answered “My mother” and we think that this is really sweet. Then, we just had to let him tell us about the most embarrassing moment of his lifeMekawy jokingly replied “Heya di!”.

Mekawy couldn’t choose a favourite film when we asked him to pick one, neither was he able to tell us about a scene that might’ve once caused him to weep. However, he spoke about how sensitive he actually is as a person and literally accidentally broke his coffee mug while at it! whoa, man. Easy.

It didn’t come much as a surprise when we asked Mekawy about what he’d be doing if he weren’t who is today, and he responded “I’d be acting”. And we wish you all the luck in the world, dude!

Yasmine Sabry was Mekawy’s first choice for a love scene partner in a film. He also added that he’d definitely do an Arabic version of 50 Shades of Grey and he’d choose Sherine Reda as his love interest in it. When we asked him about his high school crush, he instantly uttered “Salma Hayek!”

We wanted to get more intimate and ask him about his biggest fear, he replied that he has two fears in life: Being lonely, and losing the love of the people around him. After that, came the dreaded question about the thing he hates the most about himself and Mekawy didn’t hold back when he told us it is definitely his bad temper.

The man got hungry in the middle of our interview and decided to get a salad, but of course, we didn’t let him off the hook that easily, instead, we carried on with our questions at the salad bar. So, we hit him with our next question “Could you tell us about your daily routine?”Mekawy told us “It’s very simple, I definitely never hit the gym, so, my normal day consists of me going to work in the morning, then going out with my friends and enjoying some hookah in the evening and that’s about it.”

We asked him abut his dream car and to our surprise, he told us that he isn’t interested much in cars, it is more about motorcycles for him, and if he did actually have a dream car, he still wouldn’t buy it because he knows he’d crash it at some point!” and we appreciate the honesty. He really wants to get a spider bike, though!

We couldn’t, of course let the opportunity slip without asking him about his opinion on the amount of fashionistas rising daily to stardom at the moment, and the dude was very diplomatic in his answer when he said that it’s always the case that there’s good and bad in all industries, so he believes that some fashion bloggers really do understand fashion but some just simply don’t.

Now, the important bit for all you ladies swooning over him. We finally asked him about his current crush, and he said that he doesn’t have one, at least not for the time being.

We were very curious to know what his very first date ever was like. He told us that he’s actually only been on one date his entire life! He then spontaneously added that he isn’t much of a fan of the whole “Going out one on one” thing, he actually always lets his friends tag along on his dates. Dude, no. Seriously, don’t do that. wrong move.

-He loves to wear black

-He doesn’t know how to cook

-His favourite foods are molokheya bel araneb and ferakh panne

-He basically eats anything and everything

Thank you so much for giving us your time, Mekawy and we hope you enjoyed this interview as much as we did!

A few questions with the superb dentist Dr. Ahmed Essam



What is your greatest success as a dentist?

Q1: The greatest success as a dentist to me is when I see the patient’s joy after his life has changed, whether it is because we gave him/her a smile makeover or a new smile. In addition, if the patient had a problem for a while and has been to several dentists and could not solve it, and we were the reason to solve it, provide the proper treatment plan and treat him/her. The joy the patient has is considered the greatest achievement of my career. It makes me feel successful.

What would you do if a patient disagreed with your assessment of his or her dental health?

Q2: When a patient is not convinced with their treatment plan or when him/her have a certain point of view and they have been around and asked. Therefore, if they see that a certain treatment plan is right for them and I see otherwise and is not 100% right or right for his/her case, I explain to them all the options. In addition, I would also point out the pros and cons of the treatment. I also talk to them in depth about the treatment plan, even if it is going to take an hour in the first session. If they got convinced, then great, if they weren’t convinced I start showing them the result before I start working as a mock up, digitally or analog or even with pictures on the computer if they got convinced I proceed with my suggested treatment plan, if they weren’t convinced I have two options which are if the treatment is acceptable but I do not see it as the best option, the patient signs a consent sheet that they want to proceed with their chosen treatment plan even after every other option was thoroughly explained to them. The second option is if the treatment plan is not appropriate for the patient based on studies, then I tell him or her I will not proceed with the treatment at all.

As a dentist, you may have to treat patients who are deeply uncomfortable or even afraid of getting dental work done. How do you make patients feel comfortable, safe and relaxed while working with you?

Q3: First, of course, no one likes dentists, and a lot of people are usually frightened from the visit because of the pain, old experiences, and the procedure itself regarding the many devices used. Therefore, that is normal. The secret is in the diagnosis session with the specialized doctor and that is why we give the first session of the patient the most importance. Because we listen carefully to what the patient complains of, there is a possibility that the patient cannot accept the doctor, has a problem, has a bad experience from something specific, the anesthetic injection, and the pain that accompanies it, the syringe poke. In addition, there are also people that have a phobia of the chair in the clinic. Therefore, all that shows in the first session from the talk we have with the patient and how well we listen to them. Following that, we start to highlight the patient’s fears, what scares them the most from dentists; what he/she hates the most about the dentist’s clinic and makes him ignore going to the dentist. Therefore, we try to overcome that problem by showing him the opposite of what he thinks. As well as being keen about his specific fear until it is an experience that can be accepted by the patient. In addition, we also change his point of view on the dentist’s clinic or the dentist himself, and that is also one of our hardest moments.

How would you determine when dental X-rays are needed, and how would you conduct this procedure?

Q4: The dental examination or the diagnosis is not built around the doctor, there are several factors to reach the right diagnosis. Firstly, the patient’s complaint. Secondly, the dental examination itself, which requires me checking up the teeth with my eyes, loupes or with the microscope. Thirdly, the X-rays, the X-rays, are a crucial part of the tools responsible for an accurate diagnosis. I cannot say when I can use the X-ray and when can I not, it’s not an option. Therefore, there must be an X-ray. It differs if the X-ray is only a panorama and is enough, or a periapical X-ray or a cone beam X-ray. Therefore, it differs from one procedure to another, but it is impossible to build a complete diagnosis without seeing the X- ray, seeing the patient, hearing his complaint, and taking his pictures. In conclusion, the diagnosis must always include an X-ray.

Tell me more about yourself, why did you choose dentistry as a career?

Q6: When I talk about my specialty, which is make overs, beautifying or full-mouth rehab with implants or prosthesis. The patient comes to the clinic often with issues that include pain and just general problems with their teeth. In addition, the patient also complains about his/her self-esteem because of how their teeth look or the function of them not being able to eat etc. So, when I reach a successful outcome with the patient of them being able to eat and them regaining their confidence and being happy, as well as their teeth looking natural. That is what made me love the career more and hold on to it more, no matter how long the treatment process is or no matter how much it is tiring; that is the result that makes me happy and makes me want to continue in this career, and that is why I chose it.

What is your vision for the future of your clinic?

Q7: Regarding my vision for superb, I won’t be cliché and say that I want us to be the best clinic there is, but my vision is to change the thought of dentistry in Egypt. That is that at the end of the day we are doctors, and that is why it’s crucial that not everything we do is about selling. I do not sell a service; I am not a merchant, and I don’t have a commodity to sell. The most valuable thing I present is the dental health and the health of human beings, and that is the most valuable thing god gave us and ordered us to take care of. Therefore, that is my vision, which is to change the thought of dentistry. I do not sell a commodity. At the end of the day, I am a doctor and I need to treat patients the right way and change the thought of treatment here. At the same time, my vision is to also change the thought of being scared from the dentist and to change the thought of people thinking that they need to go to the dentist only when they are in pain or that they look at going to the dentist in a financial sense, meaning that they feel they are going to pay a lot of money or that they are being scammed. In conclusion, all of that is what I want to change according to my vision. Also, the reason for me naming the clinic superb is to be superb at everything we do as a team that presents all dental services in one place, as well as presenting interdisciplinary dentistry, meaning that not only one doctor checks up on you. but there’s also more than one specialist that will work with you to reach the best treatment plan and best outcome you can reach.

What have you done to prepare for a career in dentistry

Q9: I am a medical graduate and Oral and Dental Surgery from Al Qahera University; after that I became a fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of England. I took more than 300 accredited hours from different academies like the American and European academy. In addition, I also went to the college of cosmetic dentistry. I also have more than 250 hours accredited from the American Academy of implant ologist or Implantology Association in teeth implants and full mouth rehab. I believe that knowledge is endless. Therefore, every day, especially in dentistry something new appears. Every day we discover that something we used to do from 2 or 3 years now evolved and that something (technique) is not right anymore. So being always updated and always learning and always seeing new things is the most important thing. So, I still have a lot to educate myself on and I still have a lot of more knowledge to gain.
