Facebook is great as it enables you to keep in contact with friends and see what they are doing and to my surprise I was tagged by Ali Kozy (Kose) with the news that he will be a singing judge on a new BBC1 TV show .
He will be alongside Geri ‘Ginger Spice’ on the judging panel with South Londoner comedian ‘Rob Beckett’ who is the host of the show “All Together Now” which starts on the 27th January 2018.
For those readers who would like to know more about Ali Kose we have replicated below a message which summed up our meeting when flying with him from London to Ercan way back in….
Message from Ali Kose……
Hi Chris, nice to meet you and Margaret and I have just about got over the flight we shared together and would like to tell my worldwide friends about our meeting and journey together:
As you may know I am a singer, songwriter, composer and performer based in the SE of a fantastic city we all know as London in the UK. My parents come from an Island in the Eastern Mediterranean known as Cyprus.
I decided spontaneously on Wednesday evening 31st August to book my last minute flight to Northern Cyprus. My trip started with a very slightly delayed flight which I decided not to worry about as I had more time to spend at the duty free in Stansted airport.
Anyhow, on the plane there were further delays on route to Istanbul and on to Ercan in Northern Cyprus, and I was sitting next to you, Chris Elliott and Margaret Sheard who run http://cyprusscene.com which made our delayed trip less tedious due to the wde range of things we talked about and ideas we shared.
Chris and Margaret live on the Island in the village of Ozankoy and shared with me some fascinating historical stories about the Island of Cyprus Heritage click here and so here I am giving you guys a taste of my holiday.
So I came to Cyprus to enjoy the sunshine and find inspiration for writing my 4th album. This album is currently based around my Spanish guitar; infusing Latin, Funk and Soul music. You can expect catchy hooks with something for all the family.
Anyhow, I’m getting back to enjoying my holiday/inspiring compositional journey.
EXPECTATIONS FOR LATE 2016:
A 5 track EP to promote my album which will be released worldwide. Plenty of gigs in London and Europe!
