GREECE – It was 2013 when MAD TV produced for ERT the Greek national selection (EUROSONG). Back then, as oikotimes was following closely MAD TV’s production no one could really think that Kozamostra would have won the national final. It was the very night of the live show, after the performances, we all realised that “Alcohol is Free” was the best option for Greece. Greece proved right as Ilias and Agathonas brought Greece in the 6th position of the Eurovision 2013 Grand Final.
In 2020, Koza Mostra frontman, Ilias Kozas mourned for Agathonas death. The well-known rebetis artist was beloved not only in Greece but also left a remarkably positive mark during his Eurovision venture.
Since 2013 we all wished to see Ilias back in Eurovision and finally, it became true. Ilias was proposed to represent Greece last year but he didn’t want to coincide his venture with the pandemic. In a recent interview, Ilias cleared that the three submitted songs have nothing to do with what we experienced in Eurovision 2013 and they were created without Eurovision being their purposed.
It was a great honour to see Ilias accepting our invitation and sharing his own message to Eurovision fans through oikotimes, in which he “revealed” three secrets for his three bidding entries!
