Ukrainian actor, singer and composer Andriy Danilko, while participating in the Eurovision Song Contest, subconsciously changed the words of the song being performed and instead of “lasha, tumbay”, sang “rush, goodbye”, which caused anger in the country, which then attacked his homeland.
However, even in those days, Andrei found admirers, including Alla Pugacheva, People’s Artist of the USSR, writes the Russian edition polit.info.
As the performer himself said, after he performed a scandalous song with the words Lasha Tumbay at Eurovision, many artists armed themselves against him. But Pugacheva helped him stay in the industry and supported the trick against the Russians – she considered his plan funny and witty.
“When we went on stage, everything amazed the audience – the heads of television, journalists. For them, I was a kind of Baba Yaga. Pugacheva could not act otherwise, she stood up for me, because it was in her style.– said the singer.
Many years later, Danilko confirmed that at Eurovision he sang “Rush, goodbye”. And then, after the start of the persecution in the aggressor country, he even officially renamed it.
As FACTS reported, Danilko canceled his band’s tour of the United States and Canada, which were scheduled for April and May 2023. The concerts were postponed to autumn due to problems with paperwork required to travel abroad under the new rules.
