The second installment of Cairo Gossip’s hard-hitting interview series with the In the City Legends keeps us in the familiar sharky waters of Egypt’s growing scene of English-language online tomfoolery. As MO-the-third of MO4, Waleed ‘Wally’ Mowafi quite often typifies the meaning of man-about-town; he knows where ‘it’ is at and hes usually at where ‘it’ is. Whether orchestrating social media master-plans or punching words into the keyboard for CairoScene, Wally – aka I am the Wallyrus, aka The Wally-king Dead, aka Wally, Wally, Wally Uh, Tell Me More, Tell Me More – is a man with many a finger in many a pie.
So, what have you been up to since the last In the City?
I developed severe anxiety issues and an abandonment complex due the lack of ‘In The City’ events in my life. As such, I have been in hiding and have become somewhat of a recluse, awaiting the triumphant return of the next ‘In The City’.
Event Republic has deemed you an In the City Legend – if you had the power to deem anyone a legend
for any reason, who would it be?
I would deem my Mother a legend for not aborting me when she had the chance. Thanks Mum! I know you always call me a mistake, but I still love you!
Spring, summer or fall?
I prefer fall to summer and spring. I have a terribly debilitating physical defect which I am forced to expose during the sunny seasons...
What are you wearing right now?
TOM FORD! Not really. I’m wearing a H&M t-shirt.
Tell us a Secret….
I have hobbit toes. My maid caught me trying to shave them once – she hasn’t looked at me the same since.
There you have it , ladies and gentleman. Wally Mowafi has hobbit toes – now that’s grade-A gossip. Stay tuned for more from the In the City Legends and for more information on Spring in the City, click here. See you on March 11th!
