There had been several occasions in Turkey when I was there last week I heard the name Fide Köksal. Apparently, I have missed a very big thing even I visit Greece nearly 3 times a year. Today once again, I was reading Ege Muhtar’s posts on GRTRNews.com (see my one earlier post for more detail) I came a cross with the same name. A simple search on Google forwarded me to some YouTube videos.
So, what I learnt is, Fide was in a talent show in Greece some time ago and stayed in Greece after a successful competition and learnt Greek and started to sing in Greek and Turkish and had a very welcoming audience. She is a Turk from İzmir and I think she also symbolize their mother city for some people in Greece.
I selected some videos for you from YouTube. I hope you enjoy:
