In Ivano-Frankivsk, police detained X-Factor star Andriy Matsevko. It turned out that the performer, who calls himself a "People's Artist of Ukraine," had been wanted for more than two years.

This was reported by the local publication Galka. The news agency cites information received from the patrol police of Ivano-Frankivsk region.

According to the police, yesterday, January 7, Frankivsk patrol officers noticed a suspicious passerby on a city street who tried to run away when law enforcement officers approached him. The man was detained. It turned out that since July 2021, he had been wanted by one of the district police departments of the Kyiv City Police Department because he was hiding from the pre-trial investigation.

According to the Galka media outlet, the detainee is a well-known performer, a participant in many seasons of Ukrainian talent shows, Andriy Matsevko.

The artist was probably wanted after a high-profile story that happened to him in April 2021. Back then, the media reported that Matsevko was detained in the capital's subway with a fake pension certificate. The artist tried to use public transportation services with a fake document. Then the performer told law enforcement officers that a friend had given him the fake. The detainee also admitted that he knew that the man was involved in the fake document business, as he had used such a certificate himself.

According to OBOZ.UA, in recent years, Andriy Matsevko has been living in the village of Svarychiv, Ivano-Frankivsk region. His fellow villagers speak kindly of him, but in a conversation with our publication, they noted that the man lives alone. They say that in the morning he rides his bike somewhere and only returns in the evening. The singer lives in his parents' house with his mother and older brother.

Andriy Matsevko became famous all over Ukraine more than 10 years ago when he performed on the first season of the X Factor TV show. The singer failed to win over the jury because he demonstrated extremely low vocal abilities, but the audience liked him for his spontaneity. The songs "Oh Whose Rye" and "Smereka" performed by the artist went viral online. Subsequently, he conquered the X Factor and other talent shows several times. However, he was also unsuccessful. In the wake of his popularity, the artist began to be actively invited to private parties. When his popularity faded, Matsevko worked as a janitor for a while.
