Singing sensation Balqees Fathi to be the first in the Middle East

Madame Tussauds set to reveal its first Middle East figure, Balqees Fathi. Dressed in an exquisite, fittingly opulent gown and with her trademark glowing smile, Balqees’ wax figure cleverly captures both her looks and personality. While the accolades itself cements her position as a member of Arab music royalty.

Balqees Fathi figure will be amongst the famous movie stars and musicians from around the globe in the extravagant A-list party room, styled as glamorous desert oasis. Guests can post with Balqees before hitting to the jewel of the room, the interactive dance floor, and show off their best moves while the DJ plays the latest hits.

A huge amount of effort went into crafting Balqees’ incredibly lifelike wax figure and saw a team of expert Madame Tussauds’ sculptors travelling to Dubai to document 500 of her precise measurements, before setting to work back in London, spending three months crafting the figure by hand and even inserting real hair, strand by strand.

Already established as one of the most eagerly anticipated openings of 2021, Madame Tussaud’s Dubai has today offered a further tantalising glimpse of what visitors have to look forward to by revealing its first Middle East wax figure, the much-loved Emirati-Yemeni music star, Balqees Fathi.

With her unique combination of talent, beauty, glamour, strong work ethic and dedication to championing women’s rights, Balqees is an apt and much-deserved addition to the iconic Madame Tussauds attraction.

Since rising to fame in 2013 she has enjoyed huge musical success, releasing three record-breaking albums and travelling the globe as a member of the UAE NSO Symphony Orchestra.

Her latest hit “Entaha” meanwhile is already being touted as ‘the’ song for summer 2021 in the Arab world.
