Syria’s biggest singer is being held in Sweden, accused of having drugs. George Wassouf is one of the most famous in the Arab World – a sort of Arab Michael Jackson.
There was a police raid on his hotel in Stockholm on Saturday night. It’s claimed the forty six year old had 30 grams of cocaine on him.
The raid happened just before a concert – which had to be cancelled.
There have been rumours of Wassouf’s drug addiction for years. His voice seems to have been affected by the problem.
