The artist Akram Hosni was a guest on the “Sold Out” program, presented by the journalist Mahmoud Saad, during which he talked about many details of his personal and artistic life.
Akram talked about his successes in TV dramas during the past years, in addition to his influence on the message of Liverpool club player Mohamed Salah during the presentation of his series “Maktoub Alia”, which was shown during the Ramadan 2022 season.
Among the most important statements made by “Akram Hosni” was his wish to become an artist from a young age, saying: “When I was young, I felt that I wanted to remain an artist. An artist, what do I do? I don’t know the love of art. I am drawn to cinema, theater, songs, and all my money was hanging on the strips.”
And he continued, “I am not against any kind of art. Festivals are perfect. Rap and dirt are perfect. Classical singing is perfect. What is the problem that we have forms of art? The one behind the work, if I did something and the people laughed and were happy, this is perfect for me, and it is much more difficult to make people laugh. This is a very difficult thing.”
Akram also talked about his relationship with football and about a number of funny situations that he was exposed to, saying: “Once he was in a camp for the national team in the Jump Hotel, the production city, and I was working in this place, so someone told me, Abu Hafeezah, I told him how are you and completed so that I know after that that he was Moamen Zakaria.
Regarding the message of Liverpool star Mohamed Salah, Akram Hosni said, “While we were showing the series Maktoub Alia, I found Mohamed Salah sold me on Instagram, telling me sweet and friendly words, one of the sweetest things that happened to me.”
Akram Hosni touched on the stars he dreams of working with, explaining, “I have a dream to work with Esaad Younes, this lady. I see her artistic energy and joyful energy. She is really happy, and I work hard with her.”
And about his relationship with the artistic community, he said: “I was born in 74, meaning I have 48 years old. I listen to songs from when I am 7 years old, and I was brought up with Muhammad Mounir, Hamid Al Shaeri, Abdel Halim and Umm Kulthum.”
