A young model who is also a singer was shocked by the backlash she received over a video that was uploaded to the Internet.

Shaimaa Ahmed from Egypt, who is known by her stage name Shyma, was sentenced to 2 years in prison for what the court deemed to be an obscene video.

The video showed Ahmed eating food in a suggestive manner while men watched her.

The video began with Ahmed taking cream off a cookie and licking it off her finger while men watched and smiled at her.

The camera was then zoomed into her lips and showed her liking a lollipop slowly before taking bites off of a banana.

She was seen flirting with the men around her before pouring a liquid onto the banana as the men shook their heads and smiled at her.

Ahmed was found guilty of inciting debauchery and publishing indecent content.

The director of the music video was also sentenced to 2 years in prison.

On his now-deleted Facebook page, Ahmed wrote: “I did not imagine that all this would happen and that I would be subjected to such a strong attack by everyone.”
