Here you go :

"When Okka and Ortega’s hit song “Haty bosa ya bet” (“Give me a kiss, girl”) launched them to popularity last year, their aspirations took them beyond Matareya. Their distinctive sound can now be heard blaring from cars, coffee shops, microbuses and tok toks from Zamalek to Shubra – a phenomenon rarely encountered in Cairo’s carefully separated society."

La shokran 3ala wajib ya sahibati

(wa, ahlan jbenben!)
