Aik? Why suddenly letak biography Abdel Halim Hafiz ni? Siapa dia?

I have been attending lectures in the faculty, and up until now, there has been two doctors mentioning this talented singer's name. They say: " How can you be staying in Egypt and not knowing Abdel Halim Hafez?".. okay.. So I decided to read about this special man with mellow, resonant voice with subtle vocal style; who is also known as The Dark Nightingale, Egyptian Elvis, or so called Egyptian Micheal Jackson. To say in short, he is a LEGEND.

Abdel Halim Hafez was born orphan; his mother died of complication while giving birth to him. His father, unfortunately died 5 months later (cause of death not mentioned). He was raised by his aunt in Cairo. His musical abilities was seen at 11 years of age, joined the Arabic Music Institute in Cairo, graduated from the Higher Theatrical Music Institute, and becoming more active in performing in public afterward.-- I'll skip the details about his life here.--

At the age of 11, he was said to have contracted Bilharzial disease, also called- Schistosomiasis.

Some BIOGRAPHY OF SCHISTOSOMES (the one famous in Egypt)

both male and female schistosomes attached together

Name: Schistosoma Haematobium a.k.a blood flukes
Geographical distribution: Nile Valley, parts of Africa and Asia

Birth: From eggs laid in human urinary bladder, and hatch in diluted urine

Death: 24 hours after hatching if there's no snail-- as their shelter.
Profession: Parasit-ing

This parasites start penetrating human body through skin (after swimming in the Nile river) or through drinking the water. Early symptoms are; itching and papular eruption. They are circulated in the blood, and finally gets into the liver and becomes adult. When they found their spouse, the female will be laying eggs in the urinary bladder-- will then pass in the urine.-- then will hatch, got into the snail, and penetrate human body, all repeating over again.

In urinary schistosomiasis, complications include anemia, stone formation and cancer. In hepatic (liver) schistosomiasis, complications: hepatic fibrosis, anemia, dysentery (diarrhea with blood and mucus)


Yeah..this blood fluke has cause damage in Abdel Halim Hafez's liver -- and causing his death.
So people, beware.. DO NOT swim in the Nile river, and DO NOT drink the water directly. Its dangerous... its fatal.
