Ajda Pekkan, who represented Turkey in 1980 with Petrol , has released the 18th album of her long and successful career on 23th July. Aynen öyle was produced by the Turkish diva herself.

Ajda is rightfully called a superstar in Turkeyfor being the number 1 pop idol of the country from the 60's until now. TRT chose her to represent Turkey in 1980 Eurovision and a lot was expected from her. Disappointment followed though when she placed 15 th in The Hague. For a few years after contest she did not return to Turkey, took a long break and tried to forget what was considered a Eurovision disaster. But since then, her career has soared both on stage and on the screen spanning 4 decades.

On 23rd July, Ajda released her new album which she produced herself. The album is called Aynen Öyle. Volga Tamöz, Mustafa Ceceli and Emre Irmak arranged songs and Şehrazat and Sezen Aksu also worked for Ajda in album. The star also gave a concert in Kuruçeşme Arena'da with an impressive 110 persons team.

Thanks to Johnny Logan and Hold me now I fell in love with the Eurovision Song Contest, a love that's been going strong ever since with undiminished passion. My first memories date back to 1977 and the lyrics of Rock bottom, Dschinghis Khan and A ba ni bi are still engraved in my brain.

I joined esctoday.com in 2006 as a junior editor after being invited by Barry Viniker, I soon became Senior Editor and during the 2007 contest in Helsinki I was appointed Head of Communications. Today I hold the post of Head of Human Resources and I am proud to be working with the best editorial team in the world.
