EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW with
Saad Ramadan is a Lebanese singer, born in 198,6 He is the son of singer Suzan Ghattas. He participated in Star Academy 5 and won third place.
|how did you start your career?
|My passion for music started at a very young age , I was 10 when I joined the music conservatory. However my passion for music took a professional turn with Star Academy.
|what do you enjoy the most/least about what u do?
|There are many things that I like about my career, mainly that I get to travel the world. Add to it the love and admiration I get from my fans it’s honestly overwhelming. Fame comes at a cost and that’s the price we have to pay at the end of the day . Lack of privacy is not something I really enjoy .
|what is ur biggest fear?
|On a personal note my biggest fear is health , for I know that a good health is the key to life . However on a professional side I fear like many celebrities the fall of our fame . I guess that’s in our nature to do so , tho I’m clearly aware nothing lasts forever.
|what motivates you to work hard?
Success is what motivates me to keep working hard . Nothing comes at a low cost and I always thrive to be successful not only in music, but in business too .
|what is ur biggest complaint about what you do?
|Nothing really, I guess every failure, every experience and everything I went through to get where I am today taught me something. But if I have to be honest at times it did cross my mind to quit music especially when I see how the industry is doing , yet I remind myself that in the end rightness shall prevail.
|what is ur proudest accomplishment?
|There are many things I’m proud of accomplishing, on top of it is that I started from nothing and now I’m here . Looking back at it makes me feel proud and I always try to motivate those around me that the impossible is not possible. المستحيل هو ما لم يخلقه الله لك وليس ما عجزت عنه أنت
|what makes u laugh the most?
|Lately with the circumstances of my country I don’t find it easy to laugh , but mainly when I’m among my family and friends is where I feel the happiest.
|how long did it take you to get to where u are today?
|It took me 14 years . I started 2008 until today , and only 4years back I could say that I finally felt like I can sit back and relax a bit. The 1st 9 to 10 years were very difficult . But I’m a believer that things that grow slow are much better than the quick fame .
|are you satisfied with ur accomplishments?
We as humans are greedy, we always want more and more . However I’m so thankful for my accomplishments. At some time I might have thought I could have done more , but Hod has compensated me in other things. Lhamdella I’m very thankful and grateful.
|if you had the chance to start over what would you change?
|What a question, this is the 1st time I’m asked this question. It took me a while to get to answer this question because I think I’d want to change many things today. Especially after what happened in Lebanon the past few years and Corona , it changed how I look at what I’m doing and I guess I’m adopting more a business mindset than I did before . I was influenced by a book I read ( Rich dad Poor dad ) . I try to teach my brother who’s just starting his career what no one has taught me when I was his age .
|would you consider urself successful?
|Definitely, I am successful.
|have you ever had a nickname? if so, what is it?
