entertaim.net: Hi Reyhan, you’re a famous Turkish Popstar. I just saw your video „Kelebek“ which means „butterfly“. How successful is this song so far? What are the lyrics about?
R.K.: Hi Dennis, „Kelebek“ is going very well, it’s been just two weeks already and had a very good feedback. This song is about a woman that is separated from her loved one and having another happy life without him and without turning back.
entertaim.net: Your videos are really international high-end-productions and the video of your song „Sobe“ got more than 1,2 Million hits on youtube …. Congratulation! How important are videos and how much fun is it … producing videos?
R.K.: In my last five music videos, I worked with the director Gökhan Özdemir and the image-maker Isac Angel. Three of them were shot in U.S.A. I am very happy about all of them as they all were beautiful. My team is wonderful. They are also my friends and we are having great fun while making those videos. I am sharing some moments on instagram.
entertaim.net: As mentioned your videos have got an international flair but you sing exclusively in Turkish for the domestic market. Have you ever thought about a second version in English for a bigger target group?
R.K.: We had been thinking about this for my song SOBE but it did not happen. I am keeping this intention for the coming projects. We are having some interesting plans with my producer friend Volkan Gücer in Germany.
entertaim.net: How do you keep yourself in a perfect shape? Gym or a special diet?
R.K.: Last year I started boxing and I am already doing pilates for two years. I lost 14 kilos with a special diet. I am still careful and try to keep my lifestyle under serious control.
entertaim.net: Wow … that’s amazing! Besides … What are your plans for 2016? Any huge projects in progress?
R.K.: After „Kelebek“’s release, new doors are being opened. We already gave start to a new project. The summer are bringing up concert requests. My radio program will go on with excitement.
entertaim.net: You really make a point of looking really attractive and stylish! Do you have a Top-3-list of your favourite outfits when you go out at weekends and one NO-Go?
R.K.: My favorites are thorn jeans and lousy T-shirts 🙂 In general, I like to dress casual, except in special night out or parties. I like to wear what looks good on me. On stage I dress a little different than daily life. More sportsware so to say.
entertaim.net: Do you have a final statement for your fans in Germany?
R.K.: Germany is our second homeland, due to the Turkish population living there. I am having many fans there. For concert deals, I have confidence to my business partner in Cologne called Muzikal Entertainment.
entertaim.net: Thank you very much …
R.K.: I thank you very much Dennis for building a bridge to my fans in Germany. I wish to come there soon. I send my warmest regards to Entertaim.net staff and to all my fans !
