A 16-year-old Tik Tok star identified as Nancy Ayman has bagged a 1-year jail term in Egypt over a dance video she posted on TikTok.

Egypt has upheld a one-year prison sentence against a 16-year-old girl whose TikTok dance videos were deemed obscene by authorities.

Her sentence came amid the country’s ongoing crackdown on immoral social media content.

According to local media, the Child Juvenile Court in Egypt upheld Nancy Ayman’s sentence, known on social media as Mocha Hijazi, on the grounds that her charges amounted to gross indecency on Tuesday, May 31.

Her lawyer, Mina Nagy, had appealed the one-year prison sentence, but it was upheld by the court.

Nancy, 16, was imprisoned by the Child Appeals Court in Giza, on the Nile’s west bank, and her photographer, Moaz M., was imprisoned for three years and fined 100,000 Egyptian pounds ($5,300).

Moaz was accused of exploiting the girl by forcing her to shoot and publish video clips in revealing clothing for financial gain.

It is currently unknown whether the photographer has filed an appeal against his sentence.
