Elvir Laković, also known as Laka, the eccentric singer from Bosnia & Herzegovina, is the winner of the 2008 MTV regional award for best Adria Act.
Loved or hated, Laka certainly made an impression on the Eurovision Song Contest 2008 viewers when he managed not only to qualify to the final but also enter the top ten in the final this year with his song Pokusaj.
Today, it was announced that he is also the winner of the prestigious Best Adria Act award, part of the MTV Europe Awards 2008 specifically for artists from Serbia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Slovenia, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia and Croatia. The awarding ceremony will take place on 6 November at the Liverpool Echo Arena in the UK.
