Uzerli, known as Hürrem Sultan has recorded a duet with Cekos.Meryem Uzerli, better known as Hürrem Sultan in the popular Turkish TV series Magnificent Century, has recorded a duet with Greek singer Petros Cekos. Cekos said he was very happy to work with Uzerli. Uzerli is very popular in Greece where she is known as the “red-haired artist.” Cekos said Uzerli had worked like a professional. The duet will be featured on the new album of Cekos, which hits the shops in June.
Earlier the Turkish soap opera had gained so much popularity in Greece that pop singer Efi Thodi released a new song based on the series’ protagonists.
In her song “Oh Süleyman,” Thodi declares her love for the sultan, asking him openly to leave his sweetheart Hürrem, and luring him with a delicious kebab and meze feast. The song has raised some eyebrows in her country, but Thodi has not flinched to criticism, saying that the song intended to be ironic.
Last week Meryem Uzerli left the country to seek treatment at a clinic in Berlin for burnout.
