The Singing Treasure of Greece Nikos Okonomopoulos
He burst onto the music scene by winning in the “Dream Show-2” (Alfa-TV) in 2006, at the age of 22. As a result, Nikos was signed under the Sony label where he recorded three very popular albums, the last of which went platinum in the short time of four months from the date of release. At the end of 2010, when the contract with Sony expired, Nikos moved to Minos EMI. The first album released under this label, “Doro Gia Sena”, went Triple Platinum within the period of five months. Such amazingly quick success is extremely rare in
At the end of 2011 the rapid success of the following album “Tha Eimai Edo” was
truly phenomenal; it became double platinum within a two week time. In
September 2012 Nikos was honoured with a Multi Platinum (Four times platinum) Award
for this CD.
No wonder that legendary Giannis Parios regularly announced onstage that Nikos “…is the future of Greek music” while performing live with Economopoulos at the music hall “Fever” in
from November 2009 to March 2010.
Nikos is the proud recipient of two prestigious Music Video awards, which he received in 2008 and 2009, respectively. His exceptional musicality, professionalism and excellent appearance, together with a very extensive repertoire, make him the most attractive entertainer. Overwhelming success of Nikos Oikonomopoulos recitals in
is just one of many evidences to confirm that.
