NEWS/George Dfouni Singing with Shakira

After long negotiations with the management team of the artist George Dfouni and the international songstress Shakira, the deal had been made to release a duo between the two singers. The song "Majnouneh" is on the market now, on Arabic and American stations. George Dfouni sang in the Lebanese dialect in this song while Shakira sang in English. George himself wrote the lyrics of “Majnouneh”.

George Dfouni wished the song took part of his new album, but it did not finish before releasing his album “Safinat Nouh,” so he was obliged to release it as a single, and is so happy to work with Shakira after a long-time friendship.

George G. Dfouni is a Lebanese-American entrepreneur, hospitality expert, musician and entertainer. Originally from Beirut, Lebanon, he is a graduate of the Hotel Career Center in Bournemouth, England and earned a Masters of Business Administration in Hotel Management from Oxford University in England. He was named Chief Operating Officer of Amsterdam Hospitality Group in January of 1999 after serving as Vice President and General Manager for three years at Amsterdam Hospitality Group’s Ameritania Hotel. Here he was responsible for the hotel’s renovation and revitalization projects. He is a graduate of the Hotel Career Center in Bournemouth, England and earned a Masters of Business Administration in Hotel Management from Oxford University in England. 

In addition to his hospitality business, Dfouni has worked within the Television field. He produced and hosted his own talk show, Uncensored with George Dfouni , which was aired on Dandana TV. In 2004, George Dfouni recorded and released a music album, titled Just Like That followed by the number one hit single Icharat . The music video for Icharat was filmed in New York City in May 2010 and was released late June 2010. We are excited to see what else Mr. Dfouni has in store for his Arabic and American fans in the near future!
