Legendary singer Mohamad Abdu voices support for Saudi Arabian women driving

JEDDAH: Saudi Arabia’s legendary singer Mohamad Abdu was keen on mentioning his support for women in his nation at recent concerts.
His comments come as women have recently been allowed to drive and attend music concerts.
His fatherly side came out when, at one concert, he advised men to consider women as they drive for the first time.
“My daughter or yours might be taking to the roads to drive on her own, we are highly responsible for protecting them and must behave responsibly, to prove to the world how civilized we are,” the singer said in a recent video.
In another concert, held in Jeddah, Abdu addressed a mixed-gender audience by urging male attendees to respect fellow women.
“Our daughters and families are our guests here, what a nice experience this is, and what is even nicer is that we prove to those who granted us this chance that we deserve it.”
He addressed his female fans by telling them that men will be keen on protecting and serving their interests, as they head to drive or as they attend music concerts.
“They will be among the first to care for you and protect your interests,” he said.
