It has become known who is behind the "clone" of Oleg Vynnyk: a famous singer and TV presenter who ran for Parliament hides behind the glasses
The person behind the identity of the Ukrainian singer DISCOMAN may be the well-known artist and TV presenter Hennadii Viter. Blogger Bohdan Bespalov believes that the singer has adopted a new stage name and changed his style to "revive" his career.
The star, who conceals himself behind large sunglasses or hands in photos, is often referred to as a "clone of Oleg Vynnyk," but he does not acknowledge any similarities in their work. Bohdan Bespalov discussed DISCOMAN's personality on YouTube.
"I've already informed you once that Hennadii Viter, a Ukrainian showman, former TV presenter, and producer, is the mastermind behind the DISCOMAN project. Given that his solo project, Viter, is not faring well, Geno, no offense, has ventured into the DISCOMAN persona," the blogger explained.
Hennadii Viter was born on May 29, 1973, in Mykolaiv. The star is a choirmaster by profession, and at the beginning of his career in Kyiv, Viter worked in a music hall and served as an assistant to a people's deputy.
In 2012 and 2014, the musician ran as a self-nominated candidate for the Parliament of Ukraine, but he was never elected. While working as an assistant to a deputy, he received an offer for a position as a music editor for a TV channel.
Since then, the star's career as a performer has skyrocketed. Additionally, Viter is one of the most successful music producers in Ukraine. He has produced numerous top-rated television projects, including Star Factory seasons 1-3, Songs of the Sea, Paul McCartney's concert on Independence Square (which became the largest in the history of Ukraine), and the Mask show.
Before the full-scale invasion, he was building a solo career, and some of his songs even topped the charts. According to Bohdan Bespalov, the artist decided to create a new persona reminiscent of Oleg Vynnyk to garner even more fame.
However, DISCOMAN himself, who still conceals his face and name, disagrees. In an exclusive interview with OBOZ.UA, the mysterious singer stated that their music is distinctly different and does not overlap in any way. Read more about the star and the reason why he works incognito here.
