Mai Abdel-Jabbar Hamdan Selim (Arabic: مي عبد الجبار حمدان سليم‎, born November 6, 1983 in Dubai),[1] commonly known as Mai Selim (Arabic: مي سليم‎), is a Jordanian singer and actress. Her sisters are Mais Hamdan and Dana Hamdan.[2]


Musical debut[edit]

Mai sings in the Egyptian dialect, though she was born to a Jordanian father and a Lebanese mother. She has been living in Egypt ever since she was at a young age and has stated she almost lived her whole life there. She gained a degree in Business Studies from Maritime Academy in Egypt.[1]

Mai states that luck has played a big part in her being of where she is right now:

"I won't lie and give you the clichéd line of 'I've been working towards this all my life since I was a child' and all that stuff. I knew I had a very strong artistic side to me, and I had a strong passion towards music, but I never thought I'd make a career out of it one day."[3]

In 2008, she released the album Ehlawet El Ayam (Arabic: احلوت الأيام‎).[4]
