President of the Republic of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan received Turkish pop stars at his residence Huber Mansion (Huber Köşkü) on June 22. One of his guests was Orhan Gencebay, a singer of Crimean Tatar descent, having a lot of admires in the Republic of Turkey and the world.
The meeting with the President was closed to the press and lasted about 1 hour and 20 minutes.
Just a reminder: During his 2012 meeting with the Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people and Ukrainian MP Mustafa Jemilev, the famous Turkish singer and performer of songs in the arabesque style Orhan Gencebay said that he is a Crimean Tatar, putting an end to much debate about his descent in the Turkish media.
Gencebay said that his roots on his father's side originated in the village of Kujbyshevo (Albat) of Bakhchisaray district, and his name comes from a combination of the words "kenji," which means "little kid" and "bay" - "rich" in the Crimean Tatar language.
