Network of… Riad Kamal
The Arabtec CEO has been all over the news this week. But did you know he’s connected to a Lebanese diva and a world famous golfer? Sort of.

Bit of a stretch this one, but we think we can get away with it. Arabtec was the proud sponsor of the Arab-Russian Gala Dinner in Dubai, at which Nancy Ajram was the headline act. Seems certain he was there, and pretty likely that the pair met. Okay so it’s tenuous, and we can’t confirm that Kamal and Ajram met, but his money lined her pockets, and his picture’s on her website, and that’ll do for now.
Ajram is Lebanon’s famous singer, with more than 30 million records sold to date. She was born into a Christian family in Beirut in 1983, and by age 12 had won gold in a TV variety show. This led indirectly to her first album, released at the tender age of 15. She married in 2008, and had her first child in 2009.
