Hundreds of Egyptians filled the Sayeda Nafiesa mosque to say goodbye for the iconic Egyptian singer and actress, Shadia, who died on Tuesday at 86 years old. Fatimah Shaker was born in 1931 but known throughout her career by her single stage name. Shadia suffered a stroke earlier this month and later went into a coma. She was admitted to a Cairo military hospital where she was paid an intensely publicized visit by President Sisi and his wife. With her silky and playful voice and perfectly honed acting skills, Shadia took part in over 112 films, radio shows and drama plays. She belongs to an era in the Egyptian entertainment industry that critics and entertainers call the “golden” age, a time that roughly stretched from the 1940s to the 1970s, when some of Egypt’s best movies were produced.
