Shemsi Krasniqi and the buzz in the media about the Sunny Hill festival!
The Sunny Hill Festival has not found peace even with the return to Kosovo and Dukagjin Lipa, Dua Lipa's father and her manager, has been attacked by a Kosovar singer, who is not known or little known in Albania. Shemsi Krasniqi, was arrested after he asked to enter without a queue to sing at the festival.
He claims that he wanted to sing a song for Adem Jashari, touching the nationalist nerve of the people, and he did not leave Elvana Gjata without being harassed, in addition to Dukagjin Lipa, whom he makes responsible for his arrest.
In an interview for Euronews Albania, he said to the journalist Bruna Çifligu: "Do you think that at this age I go to a wedding without an invitation? Dukagjin Lipa wanted to reduce my program. Why not sing national songs to the youth there? During the commercials I told him: with two children I will sing those songs, he told me 'with three children you will not sing them'. I wanted to sing Adem Jashari's song, "Xhamadani vija vija".
I respect Elvana Djata a lot as a singer, as a person..., she has not only done things with me, she has also done some things before. Why did he go against me? He doesn't even know the song. There is no music. He just put it in vain. Adem Jashari's song is the most popular song at the moment. I don't even know the text. Ask him if he knows the text?"
