OIKOTIMES 14 YEARS ONLINE: welcome Belarus
Fotis Konstantopoulos (Greece)
PRESS RELEASE – It’s 14 years already since we first went online with oikotimes – the web page which always meant to bring the ultimate Eurovision information from the side of the fans. Only last year 2,4 million visited our website giving to oikotimes the second best year since 2006.
Since 2011 we celebrate our annual online anniversary with a party to remember night. In 2011 and 2013 it was Athens, in 2012 it was Brussels and in 2014 was host city Copenhagen. In 2015 we again decided to party at the Eurovision host city, Vienna. Therefore we want to invite you all accredited P & F Eurovision lovers to join us at the EUROCLUB on 20/5 at 23:00 after the jury rehearsal for a unique celebration.
We are not going to be alone: After announcing the participation of Azerbaijan and France we can now confirm the participation of Uzari and Maimuna, the Belarusian representatives in Vienna who will honour us with their song “Time”.
Uzari is a professional singer and composer, born and raised in Minsk by a very music-oriented family. His first experience with the Eurovision Song Contest began in 2011 when he supported Anastasia Vinnikova in Düsseldorf as backing vocalist. After that Uzari participated in the Belarusian national final in 2012 and 2013. In 2014, he co-wrote the song Sokol for the 2014 Junior Eurovision Song Contest whilst also being busy finalising Time with Maimuna.
Maimuma earned the coveted First Violin role in the Presidential Orchestra, but thinks that her children (Diana, five; and Philip, eighteen months) are her proudest achievements.
During the party we will make sure the first 50 of you will get random Eurovision goodies specially gathered for you! Don’t miss this one!!!
