A POP star has been arrested over a raunchy video showing her singing in her underwear while eating a banana “suggestively”.
Shyma has come under fire in her native Egypt for the racy clip, which also shows her licking an apple while teaching a class full of men.
She was arrested on suspicion of inciting debauchery and song I Have Issues received a number of complaints.
The video shows Shyma appearing to mimic a sexual act while eating the banana in front of a chalkboard with “Class #69” scrawled on it.
Her male “pupils” then copy her raunchy antics throughout the footage.
It was slammed by local media, with one saying: “Singer Shyma presents a lesson in depravity to youths.”
But others have shown support for the star and branded her arrest “unbelievable”.
The singer has now apologised for the video but said she didn’t expect it would cause so much fury.
She said: “I apologise to all the people who saw the clip and were upset by it and took it in an inappropriate way.
“I didn’t imagine all this would happen and that I would be subjected to such a strong attack from everyone, as a young singer… who has dreamt from a young age of being a singer.”
