During the last five months, Diab and Rotana have been in a media war over the contract termination, Diab made all his Rotana albums private on Youtube but that didn’t cause any harm on Amr’s social media channels, until today, as the social media team decided to upload the new album to his Youtube channel, what was immediately followed by the channel termination.

YouTube says “Amr Diab has been terminated because we’ve received multiple third-party claims of copyright infringement regarding material that the user posted.”
