Bebeshko provided the money, but Yanukovych assisted: Mila Nitich has revealed for the first time how she bought an apartment at the age of 18
Ukrainian singer Mila Nitich, who has collaborated with the renowned producer Volodymyr Bebeshko for 10 years, shared how he assisted her in purchasing an apartment at the age of 18. The star's initial residence was in her small hometown of Khmelnytskyi, and later, it enabled her to invest in an apartment near Kyiv, spanning almost 100 square meters.
According to the star, in 2009, she returned from the New Wave competition with a prize from Alla Pugacheva's Golden Alla, amounting to $50,000, which she decided to deposit in a bank.
"After that, we had an election campaign for Viktor Yanukovych. Why be afraid to talk about it if it was 2009? We had concerts, and a certain amount of money remained... The mayor of my city at that time put me on the waiting list for social housing, and I had the opportunity to buy an apartment. At the age of 18, I bought it thanks to Volodymyr Bebeshko, who raised the required amount of money," the singer said.
She promised to work off the money, but the producer assured her that the young vocalist had already earned her own housing and shouldn't give anything back.
Her father used to live in this apartment, but in 2019, the star decided that she wanted to buy a place closer to the capital. She sold her property in Khmelnytskyi and invested in a building in Irpin.
"Gradually, over two years, I paid off the money for this apartment. There was a time when I had help; I borrowed from friends. Then the lockdown started, and everyone lost their jobs," the singer explained.
Mila Nitich suggests that the opportunity to buy real estate at the age of 18 was given to her by concerts in support of the fugitive president.
"I don't know what money Volodymyr Bebeshko gave me, but I know that after Jurmala, we had 50 thousand, which we put in a bank on deposit. We used these funds to keep the project alive and developing. What we earned in 10 concerts from the election campaign. Perhaps he took this money from there," the singer said.
As of 2009, the artist's fees had already increased to three thousand dollars.
