New video of Turkish man singing duet with famous singer Anne-Marie goes viral
ISTANBULYet another video of a man from Turkey’s southeast singing a duet of “Ciao Adios” with British singer Anne-Marie through the mobile karaoke application “Smule” has gone viral online.
Mehmet Ali Şulan from the Cizre district of the southeastern province of Şırnak accompanied Anne-Marie with lyrics sung in Kurdish.
Previously, a video of Şulan singing along with British singer Anne-Marie to her song “Rockabye” had gone viral, racking up at least 2 million views.
Şulan, who is a member of a music group that performs in local cafes in Cizre, said he performed the duet “for fun” and had translated the lyrics into Kurdish himself, Doğan News Agency reported.
“I started to use this application and I liked the song because of its rhythm. So I sang along. At first I did it just for fun, but it became more serious later. I wish that we had opportunities like this before. We want to present Cizre in a better way as we have suffered many troubles. I wish everything could be expressed through music,” he said.
