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.

Here are a few more facts about Mekawy:

-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!

Mo Salah to Become the First Ambassador for UN Instant Network Schools




Mo Salah to Become the First Ambassador for UN Instant Network Schools

Our iconic role model Mohamed Salah has been selected by the United Nations as the first Ambassador for Instant Network Schools, the program that grants refugee and host country students the chance to obtain high-quality online education. 

The organization made the announcement on their official website and said that Salah will participate in the UNHCR program by taking part in school visits supported by the program. He will also help in raising awareness regarding the importance of quality education for refugee students. 

The program invests in technology that brings the kids closer to the outside world and help them envision their future and plan it out.

There are currently 36 instant school communication networks in eight refugee camps in Kenya, Tanzania, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and South Sudan, according to the statement.

“I’m partnering with Vodafone Foundation and UNHCR to close the gap between the education available to refugees and their peers living in settled communities,” Salah said in a statement.

“Instant Network Schools is an important initiative that I am proud to represent, which is transforming learning for a generation of young people across sub-Saharan Africa and soon also in my home country, Egypt,” he added.

Quintin Tarantino is Finally Welcoming the Birth of his Child



Quintin Tarantino

All time favorite filmmaker, Quentin Tarantino finally welcomes being a father! Hurray! Daniella Pick, Quentin’s wife, went into labor on Saturday, February 22nd!

The happy couple are excited to announce the birth of their baby boy whose star sign is officially Pisces. Daniella broke the news to her husband in late August, and ever since, lovers have been preparing and getting ready for the day he’ll be born!

Model Daniella and Quentin met back in 2009. Yes, a long long time ago! They got officially engaged and tied the knot in 2018. We have no idea how Quintin was capable of directing his last ever movie Once Upon A Time in Hollywood while having a lot on his plate!

Regardless of that, Quintin has been treating his hubby very well and was taking care of her health so that the baby could be as healthy as possible! Their wedding was a small private ceremony where close friends and family had gathered to celebrate such a monumental moment!

The age gap between both lovers might be a bit big, but 21 years of difference between them hasn’t been an issue in their relationship! All that matters to them is that they’re in love and just had their first baby, you could imagine how stoked they are right now?

The director though opened up about how much he concentrates on his work. “When I’m doing a movie, I’m not doing anything else. It’s all about the movie. I don’t have a wife. I don’t have a kid. Nothing can get in my way. The whole world can go to hell and burst into flames. I don’t care. This is my life.”

Can you believe that the Golden Globe Winner believed that he would never get married or have a kid before he’s 60? Look at where he is today! Happily married and just had his first baby! People were hoping they’d name the child Quentin Junior.

Maybe the Kill Bill director had this all planned out. He’d mentioned previously that he only wanted to make 10 movies in his entire career, but when asked about why is he ending his career, he said that he’d rather make 10 movies that would leave a mark on people and stand out rather than simply do dozens! Which is why Tarantino fans are bummed out after releasing his last movie!

Congrats to the happy couple, we all truly hope that putting your family first after being a huge success in cinema is your happiest decision. I mean who knows, maybe Quintin’s son will turn out to have his father’s talent!
