RUSSIA 🇷🇺 Mikolas Josef and his management are expected to react to UrKiss song release and stage presentation. UrKiss not only copied the Czech entry in the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest which he released last April but his performance in various TV shows is a copycat of what Mikolas did on stage. Neither for the song or the stage presentation did the Russian singer credit Mikolas Josef and his team.
Everything started during the televised festival of Zvezdy Russkogo Radio in April but it is not the first time the singer blamed for plagiarism as he was accused last March for copying the song “Meduza” by Matrang.
UrKiss performed his Mikolas Josef song version also at MUZ TV awards and at RU TV few weeks ago. Two big shows in Russian television. Yuri Kiselyov (aka UrKiss) is known for been a spoiled showbiz brat as his father owned big media group in Russia.
With no official release of the song, it is clear that Yuri Kiselyov is earning from the song and performance via YouTube although the song has not been officially rereleased. But the performance videos are monetized!
But Mikolas shouldn’t actually bother. He has been announced as one of Forbes most influential people of the year. A fair ranking for Mikolas as he actually put his country back on the map of the international music industry. In his first reaction on Instagram, Mikolas thanked his followers and his parents for supporting his dream which started with actually no money in the pocket.

@forbes Czech Republic put me on their list of the most inspirational people of the year. 🙏🏻 Here is a backstage one from the shooting and having a great time doing the interview. We talked about how money works in the music industry, playing on the streets, starting with zero budgets, chasing dreams and my parents being my biggest motivation & inspiration. When they told me I will be in the magazine my dad was at the table and started talking about how him and Ma couldn’t afford Sunar (baby food) when I was a baby. They had it rough as fuck and I would never think the way I think if it wasn’t for seeing you two dealing with life. I want you to know that I never missed a single thing and would never wish for things to be any different then they were. We are still at the very start. Your son ❤️ M #22 @forbescesko
