In 2019, Omar Al-Abdullah was a guest on one of the programs, and the presenter of the program tried to make him fall into the trap of questions to find out if he considered that the State of Qatar supported โ€œterrorism.โ€ He asked him if he would be allowed to sing in it if he agreed to the 13 conditions of the blockading countries, to which Al-Abdullah replied by saying: Qatar is an Arab country, and I do not know these conditions.โ€

The announcer returned and asked him if he sang in Qatar after the crisis, โ€œbecause it supports terrorism,โ€ he replied, โ€œ I did not sing after what happened, but not for this reason.โ€ Omarโ€™s answers were highly praised by the Jordanians, who considered that Saudi Arabia was trying to exploit them in their crisis with Qatar, through its media.
