CROATIA – The Croatian press has accused singer-songwriter Jacques Houdek, as responsible for the theme that Roko defended at the Eurovision 2019 Festival, to have taken advantage of the singer’s participation in Tel Aviv to promote his work.
The portal Direktno.hr criticized the singer’s presence in the Croatian delegation, accusing him of overshadowing Roko’s participation in the contest with the numerous videos shared on social networks, as well as the launch of “Razgovor” during the contest.
In addition, the portal also criticizes the performances of Jacques Houdek at parties in Israel.
Describing all claims as “ridiculous, sad and improper,” singer-songwriter Jacques Houdek has responded to accusations on social networks, stressing that he is planning a lawsuit against the Croatian press.
In addition to explaining that his “life purpose is to help young talented artists like Roko find the way in music,” Jacques also criticizes the newspapers that accused him of wanting to “rob the protagonist” of the young singer:
“They wanted him to be invisible I am a very charismatic person and yes, I have talent but I also have an opinion … I used my skills to promote our Roko and to serve our music and our Croatia, because “The Dream” was a common project Thank you to all who have recognized this.”
Roko Blazevic, a Croatian representative in Tel Aviv, declined to comment on the allegations made to Jacques Houdek, lamenting only the early elimination of the competition:
“I can not say that I am disappointed, because there is no reason for it. stage and we did our best. We made the most of it and regretted not being awarded the prize.”
