X-Factor contestant Oleg Kenzov threw a "Ukrainian party" in Bulgaria, where he sang in Russian and promoted Putinists
he popular Ukrainian singer Oleg Kenzov from Poltava, who became famous for his hit song "The Situation is High" and his participation in "The X Factor," has made a new cynical prank. At a "Ukrainian party" held in Varna, Bulgaria, on January 24, the artist sang in Russian, and before that he promoted Russian tracks.
He performed iconic songs by Volodymyr Ivasyuk and the band Okean Elzy. The videos appeared on the social networks of Kenzov and his fans.
The Ukrainian went abroad a long time ago. How and when he emigrated is not known for certain. All of his recent posts have been made in different countries: Greece, Georgia, Cyprus, Warsaw and many others.
The singer travels with performances, positions himself as a Ukrainian, but communicates in the language of the occupying country, and continues to write songs in Russian. The apogee of the absurdity of this "sitting on two chairs" was seen by the star's fans in Bulgaria.
In the videos, which Kenzov reposted himself, he sang the Russian-language tracks "Rings of Smoke," "The Situation is High," and "We're Going to a Pub." Ukrainians danced to these "hits", and the fugitive also entertained them with songs by Okean Elzy - "I will not give up without a fight" - and a composition by Volodymyr Ivasyuk - "I will go to the distant mountains".
By the way, Kenzov has been criticized more than once for not writing tracks in Ukrainian for fear of losing Russian listeners.
Whether the artist had the right to perform the aforementioned songs at the concert is a rhetorical question. The leader of Okean Elzy, Svyatoslav Vakarchuk, has not yet commented on this, and perhaps he did not even know where "I Won't Give Up Without a Fight" was performed.
By the way, the Poltava native's desire to write Russian-language songs is fully "justified" by his musical taste. On the same day, he posted a video for a song by the Criminal Beat band, which was formed in St. Petersburg.
In 2021, the artists released the song "Ukraine," but in 2022, they forgot about their commitment to Ukrainians and stayed in Russia. Now they perform in front of audiences with Russian flags and are proud of their terrorist country.
