The Egyptian music artist, known as Shyma, has come under fire in her home country for the video, which shows her in a classroom full of men.
Shyma’s song, I Have Issues, has now received a number of complaints, according to police, who said she was arrested on suspicion of ‘inciting debauchery’.
In the video, Shyma appears to mimic a sexual act while eating the banana in front of a chalkboard with the words Class #69 scrawled across it.
Local news outlets slammed her video.
In a Facebook post, Shyma apologised for the video, admitting that she did not expect the backlash against it.
“I apologise to all the people who saw the clip and were upset by it and took it in an inappropriate way.
“I didn’t imagine all this would happen and that I would be subjected to such a strong attack from everyone, as a young singer… who has dreamt from a young age of being a singer.”
It is not clear if Shyma will be formally charged after her arrest
