HOL UP✋: SINGER & TV HOST FROM SAUDI ARABIA ARRESTED FOR DABBING DURRING A CONCERT. 😲😂
A POPULAR Saudi Arabian singer and TV host has been arrested for “dabbing” during a concert in the ultra conservative country.
Abdallah Al Shahani was performing the dance move at a music festival in the city of Taif in southwest Saudi Arabia last weekend.
Dabbing, which was brought to the mainstream not too long ago by the Migos is apparently illegal in Saudi Arabia.
After video footage of Al Shahani “dabbing” emerged online, the celeb was reportedly arrested by authorities on Saturday.
It is not known whether he has been charged over the offence.
The Saudi Interior Ministry’s National Commission For Combating Drugs recently banned it because they consider it to reference to marijuana use the BBC reported.
A poster released by the country’s ministry shows a cartoon image of a man performing the dance move with a big red cross over him.
It warns “people about the dangers of this [move] on the youth and society, and is warning against imitating”.
