The Egyptian singer, Abou Leef, whose real name is Ahmad Nader, got his nickname "Abu Elleef" from his friends... The emergence of Abu Leef in the artistic scene took him a lot of time, in twenty years he wasn’t able to appear to the public, but in 2010 it was the actual beginning. In his appearance, he refreshed the cassette world on the Egyptian market.
Abou Leef sang one song during the past twenty-years titled "Ah, eh,aw" and participated in a play titled “Jandark”. Abu Leef studied singing at the Conservatory, but lost hope of success, until the Egyptian artist Mohamed Hamaki supported and encouraged him, and it was his start and the beginning which is not only good, but much more than successful.
