Saudi police arrest singer for on-stage 'dab' dance move


Enter the story of Abdallah Al Shahani, a Saudi man who was performing at a music festival in Taif, Saudi Arabia and found himself getting arrested after dabbing during his time on stage.

Abdallah Al Shahani, a popular Saudi Arabian actor and television personality was recently arrested for dabbing at a concert in his home country of Saudi Arabia, the BBC reports.

Dabbing faced scrutiny from law enforcement officials in Saudi Arabia after becoming popularized in American hip-hop almost two years ago.

The dab dance move was outlawed in Saudi Arabia by the National Committee for Drug Control because it is perceived to promote drug and narcotics culture.

A poster shared on the organization's Twitter earlier this month, writes of the "dangers" that dabbing inflicts "on the youth and society".

Mr Al Shaharani took to Twitter to apologise for the "spontaneous" movement, made famous by U.S. rapper Skippa da Flippa in 2014.

Unfortunately for him, it was a viral video of him performing the move that probably alerted the law and led to the arrest. Please accept my apology.' Some users didn't take the "dabbing" lightly at all and thought his behaviour was "provocative" and "unacceptable".

One journalist at the concert, Ayed Al Ayed criticised the enthusiastic response of the crowd to the move. He did not like that at all. He tweeted: 'Young woman, your screaming continues and I find it very disturbing.

Twitter users changed their profile pictures to images of Shaharani, renaming their accounts and spreading messages of solidarity with the celebrity after he apologized for "unintentionally and spontaneously making the dance move" at the Taif festival.

Remember, sharing is caring.
