Tarkan: I am very glad to be in Azerbaijan and to meet you again
Megastar of Turkey Tarkan arrived in Azerbaijan tonight, APA reports. At the airport Tarkan told journalists that he was sure his two-day concert in Green Theater would be successful. He said he would sing the songs from his recent album Metamorfoz and other lovely songs.
“I am very glad to be in Azerbaijan and to meet you again. I love Azerbaijan very much. I promise an unforgettable concert to you,” he said.
Commenting on his previous three concerts in Azerbaijan, when another singer appeared on the stage at the beginning of the concert, Tarkan said he did not mind it.“I sing solo at every concert. Other singers perform at the beginning of the concert. I think it is normal. We should support the youth. I know Zarema and supported her when she first appeared on the stage,” he said.
Taking a stance on the rumors before his concert in Baku, megastar said the rumors that he did not want to come to Azerbaijan were groundless.“These reports are false. I have never refused to come to Azerbaijan. I am here and will give two-day concert in the Green Theater. We will sing, dance and have good time together,” he said.
Tarkan noted that he had very good relationship with Sezen Aksu.“I love Sezen Aksu and admire her, and this will always be so,” he said.Tarkan said he would not sing duet with Sibel Can and added that he had written a song for her “Cakmak, cakmak” and sang vocal.“I did not sing duet with Sibel Can. I simply composed a sing for her and she sang,” he said.
Tarkan said he loved Azerbaijani songs, but was not going to sing our songs.“You have a different dialect and I can not sing in your dialect. I do not want to look ridiculous. But I love Azerbaijani songs and listen to them,” he said.
Tarkan said he could not watch Eurovision-2008 song contest, but would support Azerbaijan’s representatives.
Turkish megastar Tarkan will give concert in Green Theater on May 21-22 and leave for Turkey on May 23. APA information agency provides information support to the concert.
