"They are from the same town". Kuzma Skryabin's daughter named two super famous singers with whom she communicates after her father's death
Barbara, Kuzma Sckryabin's only daughter, admitted that among her father's many colleagues and friends, there are two men in show business with whom she keeps in touch. The future celebrities lived next door to one of these performers.
Barbara Kuzmenko told about this in an interview with OBOZ.UA. The singer Dzidzio, whom Andriy Kuzmenko knew as an unknown artist, even helped her organize her wedding. And Barbara's grandmother used to communicate a lot with Taras Topolya.
Barbara Kuzmenko says that she can easily call the performers Mykhailo Khoma (Dzidzio) and Taras Topolya if necessary: "Dzidzio and my dad are from the same town. My dad once helped him create his stage image and wrote several songs for his band." By the way, when Barbara was getting married, Mykhailo Khoma helped the newlyweds with the wedding organization. It was on Dzidzio's Instagram page where the first photos from the wedding of Barbara and her fiancé, Viktor Tour, appeared.
Dzidzio had a very close connection with Andriy Kuzmenko during his lifetime. It was with Kuzma's support that Mykhailo Khoma and Oleh Turko created their own band. Kuzma Skryabin was the first producer of the band-the future celebrities lived next door in Novoyavorivsk, Lviv region. In his interviews, Mykhailo Khoma recalled Andriy as a valuable mentor from whom he could learn many human qualities: "It was a talent that had a very good value. He was honest. He could speak truthfully, sharply, funny, unpopularly, well, aggressively. He was very fast. When I arrived, I realized that we were like a snail and a panther."
Mykhailo Khoma also once recalled the story of how Kuzma gave him a great lesson: he left him at the door because he was one minute late: "We got up in the morning and agreed to leave at 9 o'clock. I left at 9:01, he drove in front of me. He never waited, and no offense meant. He was just thinking and moving very quickly and taught me that I shouldn't miss out on life."
Andriy Kuzmenko's mother, Olha, spent a lot of time talking to Taras Topolya. "We talked a lot with him. He is very obliging, patriotic. This is a man who could easily go to the United States with his three children to his mother's house and drive around like everyone else, wrapped in a flag, and sing somewhere where shells don't explode. But he did something completely different," Olha Mykhailivna said in an interview.
After Andriy Kuzmenko's death, on one of his birthdays, Taras Topolya wrote on social media: "He threw the bottle into the ocean and left... Suddenly, like a big man. For us, that bottle contains dozens of songs, meanings, ideas, truth, justice and injustice of life, allegories and metaphors. Everyone finds something for themselves in it. Especially when it's hard. There are words that heal. Andriy's simple language hid a deep understanding of the world. He was the first Ukrainian artist for me, and he remains so. "People are like ships" sounds in his memory from every scene. Happy birthday, Andrey! We will meet again."
