After an unsuccessful attempt to send the Belarusian girls from the group “Milki” to “Eurovision-2015” the Norwegian singer Alexander Rybak did not appear in Belarus for a while. The artist emotionally reacted to the “loss”, expressing resentment in a video on his Facebook page. However, a year later Rybak has cooled down and decided to return – this time with a tour. One of the first concerts will be held in the concert hall of the Yanka Kupala State University of Grodno on November 12.  Continue reading Alexander Rybak talks about the insults to Belarus, “Milki” and the gadget iPhone 6s

Transcript of the interview:

Host: Alexander, hello! I’ve heard that you’ve become a producer now. You have your own group in Belarus, which you are preparing for Eurovision. Is that true? Tell us more.

AR: I also heard that I’ve become a producer. To be honest, I wrote a song. I have an idea for the number. I have an idea about the Belarusian accent.. you know when we sing in English, we all, Slavic people, have a funny accent. And instead of hiding it, I wrote a song about it.. the girls sing that “I will always love you, but if you take me, then my accent will have to stay with me”.

AR: I have a producer in Belarus, and he helps us. It’s he who will develop this group. I wouldn’t organise the casting and listen to 400 girls just for one song.Of course, we’ll continue to make songs for them and so on. But, first and foremost, I am a composer.

Alexander Rybak: “The Belarusian Jury Killed My Dream!”

The Eurovision winner shared with “Komsomolka” who has upset him, what he doesn’t regret, and if he will continue working with Milki.

Together with his Belarusian manager Andei Guzel (right), Alexander Rybak will take on Milki’s future.

After the Belarusian national selection to Eurovision, most of the discussion was not about the winning duet of the singer Uzari and violinist Maimuna, but about Sasha Rybak, the triumphant Eurovision winner, a Norwegian with Belarusian roots- having been offended. In the past year, Alexander has not just been a passing visitor in our country, but one of our own, as the producer of the group Milki, and despite opposing predictions, he plans to continue his collaboration with the group.
