INSP Vendor Playlist: Kristijan Markovski (Lice v Lice, Skopje, Macedonia)

Karolina Gočeva – ‘Hipokrit’ 

Karolina Gočeva is a Macedonian popstar who has represented her country at two Eurovision song contests and is now internationally famous across several eastern European countries. Her tune ‘Hipokrit’ struck a chord with Kristijan ‘Kiko’ Markovski, 25, who sells Lice v Lice across parts of Skopje. “The song awakens beautiful memories from my childhood,” he says. “It reminds me of a period when I felt most protected and carefree. It was a wonderful period. “I was 13 years old when I first heard this song, and she is one of my favourite artists. I also like the video very much.

“The song is about being faithful to your partner. I really respect faithfulness, and Gočeva is telling us to be honest. It also tells us to try to offer help in life, because if we don’t it might hurt people very much, and we should not do those things to the people we love.”
