Salma Rachid A La Marocaine
Social Media bridges many gaps and certainly crosses lots of boundaries; be it cultural, social or even linguistic boundaries. Artists, companies, brands, designers and especially rising stars have been aware of that. Thus, they have been using social media as a means of gaining more acclaim, followership and fame through communicating with their fans worldwide. Arab Idol’s contestants are savvy when it comes to New Media. As a big fan of the show, I have been following how contestants socialize with their fans either through Facebook, Twitter or even Instagram.
The cute little Moroccan contestant Salma Rachid from Arab Idol has a very strong bond with her fans who have been urging her to wear a Moroccan kaftan. There were rumors that some top-notch kaftan designers, like Meriem Belkhayat, would be designing a kaftan for Salma. Surprisingly, Salma has succumbed to her fans’ wishes and dazzled them with a hot red Moroccan kaftan. She looked elegant, poised and like a true Moroccan who was able to rock the stage with her deep voice, charms and ethnic elegance.
