An Xtra Happy Birthday; September 22nd

Yesterday a French Eurostar celebrated her birthday. Today´s birthday boy sang and rapped in his own languages.  So far one of these language has only been used two times at Eurovision before. The first time was in 2009 and then again in 2013. Does that give a hint who the birthday boy is? Joci Pápai has a birthday today!

Joci Pápai, 36

Winning A Dal, the Hungarian national selection, gave Joci the right to participate at Eurovision in Kyiv. “Origo”, his song, is a mix of styles, singing and rapping. Sung in Hungarian with Romani phrase as a chorus. Since the song was a runner up at the 2nd semi final it ofcourse advanced to the final. With that in mind, it came as no surprise that “Origo” was in top 10, that is in 8th place.

In case you want to hear more music from Joci here is his new single. Also check out our Live Chat video that we took after the rehearsals in Kyiv.

We all at EscXtra wish Joci a happy birthday!
