Moroccan singer receives death threats over song with Israeli artist

A Moroccan singer has been bombarded with death threats over her musical collaboration with Israeli artist Elkana Marziano, Channel 12 reports.

Sanaa Mohamed has “gone underground” and canceled an interview with the Israeli network amid the backlash, the report says, adding that she’s fine.

Marziano tells the station: “We talk a lot. I speak the language a little… It was a natural alliance. She’s in Morocco and I’m Moroccan. So doing this collaboration is exciting and the greatest gift I could get.”

Marziano says he’d like to perform for the Moroccan king.

Israel and Morocco reestablished diplomatic ties last month.
