|Labels||Alam El Phan|
Mai Abdel-Jabbar Hamdan Selim (Arabic: مي عبد الجبار حمدان سليم, born November 6, 1983 in Dubai), commonly known as Mai Selim (Arabic: مي سليم), is a Jordanian singer and actress. Her sisters are Mais Hamdan and Dana Hamdan.
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.
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."
