Vogue Arabia just nicknamed Yasmine Sabri “Yasmine Egypt”, as in the “Jasmine Flower of Egypt”. And when Vogue speaks, you got to listen! Is this going to be Yasmine’s new name?

Honorific nicknames are used to indicate significance, such as the “King of Rock ‘n’ Roll” when referring to Elvis Presley. Egyptians have been giving artists honorific nicknames for the longest time, especially in the media. Some nicknames include “Cinderella” in reference to Souad Hosni, “Negmet El Gamaheer” (the crowd’s star) for Nadia El Gendy, “Kawkab Al Sharq” (the planet of the east) for Um Kalthum, “Sawt Al Jabal” (voice of the mountains) for Fayrouz, and “Ameer Al Ghena’ Al Arabi” (prince is the Arabian song) for Hani Shaker. Is “Yasmine Egypt” the newest addition to Egypt’s list of significant nicknames?

We’re huge fans of Yasmine Sabri, so we’re very excited for her being recognized for her significance by a magazine as prominent as Vogue Arabia.
