Maya Hossam Asmar (Arabic: مايا حسام الأسمر; born 14 August 1976), better known by her stage name Maya Nasri (Arabic: مايا نصري), is a Lebanese singer, recording artist, and actress.

Early life[edit]

Nasri studied acting and directing theater, television and cinema at the Lebanese University. In 1996, she started working as a TV presenter at Télé Liban, she also worked as a model.[2]


Nasri participated in "Kas El Nojoum" in 1998 on the Lebanese Broadcasting Channel where she won all three gold medals.[citation needed] Her debut single, "Khalleeni Bel Jaw", topped several charts and launched her music career.[citation needed] Since then, she has released four studio albums and several singles such as "Akhbarak Eih?", "Law Kan Lak Alb", "Habbit Hob", "El Asmarani", and "Rouh". Even though Nasri was largely successful in her music career, in 2008 she decided to shift to a career in acting and has halted her music career until now. Since then, she has starred in several Egyptian movies and TV shows.[citation needed]

Personal life[edit]

In 2010, Nasri married Egyptian filmmaker Ihab Lamey in a Church wedding ceremony in Beirut.[3] On 5 October 2013, she gave birth to their first child, a girl they named Mikaella. Nasri announced online the news of daughter's birth with the message: "I gave birth to the most beautiful thing my eyes have ever seen. It was the gift of God to my small family".[4] In 2015, during the pregnancy of her second child she revealed that a sonogram showed complications, which meant the fetus would require heart surgery within the first 10 days after birth.[5] The life-saving surgery was performed on her son Giovanni, after he was born on 3 February 2015.[6] On 18 December 2017, she gave birth to her third child, a girl, Manuella.[2]
