After capturing the reader's attention with a few loud phrases such as: “Nikos Economopoulos - is a secure investment”,   or :  “Nikos Economopoulos -  is a singer -  phenomenon”, Zoi Dimitriou, the journalist of “Proto Thema”,  leads us directly to her conversation with the singer , who describes himself as a cautious and modest man.  He answers questions that sometimes seem out of place. For example, she tells him that he looks older than his age. He certainly looks younger, he is looking great, but Nikos always felt his maturity because of the responsibility he was taken upon him. And this stigma makes him look different, not like other popular stars.   We can see it in his words, when he talks about what he feels on stage or why he wears a formal suit. Everything in him is dedicated to his audience, to the people he sings for. He shares some of the facts of his biography. It turns out ther…

New song "Ποτέ" (Never) - lyrics & English translation

Ποτέ Χριστόφορος Γερμενής Βασίλης Γιαννόπουλος
Εμείς οι δυό δεν ζούμε πια μαζί... Το λάθος έκανα και τώρα το πληρώνω, όμως δεν πρόκειται ποτέ απ' τη ζωή μου να σε σβήσω, όμως δεν πρόκειται ποτέ να σταματήσω
Παντού θα σε ψάχνω και θα σου ζητάω χιλιάδες συγνώμη που δεν είσαι εδώ, θα γράφω σε τοίχους τρελά σ' αγαπάω και θα σου φωνάζω πως φταίω εγώ, καρδιά μου…
Γιατί ποτέ δεν είναι αργά ν' αλλάξεις γνώμη, γιατί ποτέ δεν θα τελειώσουμε εμείς. Γιατί ποτέ δεν είναι αργά για μια συγνώμη, καρδιά μου όπου να 'σαι, αυτό να θυμάσαι, απ' την αγάπη δεν έχασε κανείς.
Εμείς οι δυό, δυό ξένοι τώρα πια, το ξέρω έφταιξα που είσαι μακριά μου, όμως δεν πρόκειται ποτέ άλλη σελίδα να γυρίσω, όμως δεν πρόκειται ποτέ να σταματήσω...

Never
The two of us, we do not live together anymore ... I made a mistake and now I am paying   But I will  never erase you from my life,

Nikos Economopoulos: "I feel blessed '

On the eve of his thirtieth Nikos Oikonomopoulos had a heartfelt conversation
with Christina Zachou from the People magazine.  Here we  quote some  of  his words and thoughts  he shared with her. 
"I love the sea, it gives me peace. I wish it was summer all year round "-  he says, gazing into the blue.  Christina knows  Nikos in person, so she notes,  he has a great soul and this can be seen  while you talk to him. "When I turned 29, I thought that  I am approaching 30 soon and this was a bit strange feelling. Not that I understand it now, but I realized  it after a whole year was thinking about it. However, afterage of 25, so far, I see huge changes in my character. I have changed and I have become more mature"- he reflects on his age "I've done quite a few things regarding my profession. My dream to become a singer  have come true and I have my own CDs.  In fact, I have accomplished more things than I’ve dreamed. I do not want to be greedy, I feel blessed .&…

Nikos Oikonomopoulos: "I have love in my soul, I have neither hatred nor malice, nor jealousy"

Sofia Bekari, the “Tralala.gr” reporter, met Nikos Oikonomopoulos in the nightclub Fever, where he performs this season together with Vasilis Karras and Eleni Fourera

Niko, how was your festivity season?

This year Christmas celebrations fell on Tuesday and Wednesday nights, so we were working. On Thursday we had one day gap, and after we were back to the venue again. During  the two weeks of holidays we were almost every night in the club.  . Important is that the club did well because a lot of people came to see us . We were delighted with this and hopefully, our people felt the same. Usually after the holidays things are getting a little slower and  a sort of depressed,  because the public is in a very difficult economic situation. But, thank goodness, we did not have any problems , everything went well .

Do you feel happy celebrating festivity season once again at work or you miss a bit your family ?

In fact, I…
