Egyptian actor, rapper Ahmed Mekky tests positive for coronavirus



Egyptian actor and rapper Ahmed Mekky announced on Twitter that he has tested positive for the coronavirus, and will undergo home isolation according to the Ministry of health’s protocol.

Mekky had been filming his part in the second season of “The Choice”, set to air on this year’s Ramadan season.

Mekky is also known for his role on “al-Kabeer Awi”, which was displayed in August of 2010, and revolves around the mayor of the fictional Al-Mazarita village, who married an American and had twin sons.

The first was raised in Upper Egypt and the second was raised in the US. Comic situations occur between two brothers when they meet and compete for the mayor seat succeeding their father.

Mekky plays all three roles of the father and twins, while actress Donia Samir Ghanem played the role of al-Kabeer’s wife throughout the first four series.
