“2020 felt like the year to get back to what I love most and since the pandemic is here, I guess it’ll just be an extra challenge. This shoot was a complete thrill, we had time, an amazing talented team that wanted to create something special. I wanted to do a new editorial shoot to push through and get back properly to modeling especially in Egypt as it’s been a dream to do so in my home country” says Linda.”

Currently our life situation wasn’t normal and every person was experiencing a tough moment, I called Marwan Fouad (creative director) co-founder of because I wanted to do a new editorial shoot for my modelling account. I told him let’s do something indirectly regarding Covid-19 and how one’s persons life has been affected in that period. Also knowing there is curfews and would be best if we film something at home.

Marwan Fouad was the one who chose Ghamad Einak Remix specifically from Cairokee’s latest online live show as it suited the concept exactly the way he shaped it. Moving forward Marwan Fouad called Tamer Hashem regarding the project and Tamer was very supportive and excited for the idea and he talked to rest of Cairokee members and they gave us the approval! We instantly started working on how we can execute this the best way we could.

Marwan transformed the whole idea from an editorial shoot into creating a music video. The song and lyrics has put all the pieces together. Especially that the lyrics and mood of the song can relate to every persons struggles and life in their daily basis .. and I think it did touch a lot of people and even made more sense during the tough period that we’re all facing now.” Linda says. Marwan shaped the concept to match Linda’s personality perfectly. This gave her a huge push to be able to express herself and deliver what’s needed.

So with the help of her amazing talented team they got to create something special! Linda and Marwan gathered people that they knew they will add something remarkable. Everyone did his part perfectly starting from the concept Marwan Fouad to styling by Linda’s sister Ranalinaa which was a huge part of the project to be there by her side, a flawless line producer Bess Franco and Nada Mohamed Omar for the amazing choreography, making Linda able to express herself naturally and Nour Barbari with her perfect makeup.

“This wouldn’t have turned to what it is without the DOP/ directors eyes @yousseftayeh, who exactly executed the project how all imagined and even beyond! I thank the whole team pre-production, shooting day and post; for putting so much effort and time into this and turning it into a masterpiece!” Says Linda.

After the release Linda had a talk with Tamer Hashem the famous Cairokee drummer and he was very happy and content with the video and he liked the feedback from the people. ‘Cairokee’ was very welcoming and very supportive with the idea of making the music video for their masterpiece Ghamad Einak. Felt like a proud moment for all. “Am very happy and satisfied that I got the chance to co- produce and perform for one of my favorite bands” says Linda.

“The support was insane from everyone, I am forever thankful. Thank you Cairokee for supporting the idea, your song made it perfect!” Says Linda.
