The Colombian singer Shakira did not miss the opportunity to congratulate his father William Mebarak Chadid, to whom he dedicated an emotional message for his 90th birthday.
“Dad, cute, you have driven my steps, and you have illuminated my path. You have shown me that life is open and deep like a sea and thus, you have given meaning to mine by flooding it with your joy,” the singer wrote in her account from Instagram.
“You are my inspiration, my accomplice and everything. My best friend. Happy 90 years spectacularly lived! I love you with all my being. Your girl, Shakira,” he added.
Along with the message, Shakira hung a tender photo with her father and mother Nidia del Carmen Ripoll Torrado, in which you can see the harmony and love that you have as a family.
Shakira is the only daughter of the couple. His father, born in New York and of Lebanese origin, emigrated to Colombia when he was five years old.
