Mohamed Abd El-Wahhab (March 13, 1901 – May 4, 1991), was a prominent 20th-century Egyptian singer, actor, and composer. He's best known for his Romantic and Egyptian patriotic songs.
He was known of his Egyptian nationalist and revolutionary songs like "Ya Masr tam El-Hanna" (Oh Egypt, happiness is here), "Hay Ala El-Falah" (The call of duty), "El Watan El Akbar", "Masr Nadetna falbena El-nedaa" (Egypt has called us and indeed we answered the call), "Oulo le Masr" (Tell Egypt), "Hob El-watan Fard Alyi", "Sout El-Gamaheer", "Ya Nessmet El-Horria" (The breeze of Freedom), "Sawae'd men Beladi".

He also contributed and composed the national anthems of Tunisia, "Humat al-Hima", The United Arab Emirates, "Īsiy Bilādī", and "Libya" which was from 1951 to 1969 and again since 2011.

In 1933, Abdel Wahab began composing his own style of Egyptian film musical after visiting Paris and familiarizing himself with French musical film. He introduced a lighthearted genre of musical film to Egyptian culture eventually composing eight musical comedies between 1933 and 1949. His films portrayed Western social elite and included music that veered off from the traditional Egyptian tune. He starred in his 1934 film The White Flower which broke records in attendance and still plays frequently in Egyptian theaters. In 1950 Abdel Wahab left film to focus on being a more profound singer.
