Really I feel proud of my self right now after hearing the nomination and selection from the UN side for our Brave Arabic Dialect Poet Ahmed Fouad Negm to be an Ambassador for the Poor People in the Arab Area.
In a delightful ambiance, we have received this news yesterday Aug.29th.2007 from the Egyptian TV Sat Channel Dream2 at the unique hide park program Al 3ashera Masa2an = (10:00 PM), yeah it was late, but it came on a good time, because this man didn’t stay away from the people around, even though he got a lot of financial offers to stop his ironic poetry and he is one of the biggest Arab dialect contemporary poets in this time being, not only that all his political ironic poems are very well know in the Pan Arab Region more than Egypt his own country itself, especially for the younger generation.
Kindly know that this position or this title that bestowed upon him is considered as the second in Africa after the greatest leader and fighter in our continent Africa Mr. Nilson Mandela from South Africa, the last whom our poet appreciate and respect a lot, not only him but all of us do also.
Due to Negm conversation yesterday with the respected fair presenter anchor of the program Mrs Mona Al-Shazly, he declared something very important when she asked him what will you do due to your upcoming duties? So he replied: that the 90% population who represent the poverty in this world should talk to each other first, and prepare the right agenda before talking to the competent bodies, entities or organizations, this point is very important and indicate that this man is a real aware enough and uses some sort of scientific methodology.
Last but not least, we send our deepest congratulations and joy to our poet, and hope that he could achieve things that politicians couldn’t achieve.
