Daphne Bokota writes Eurovision book

by Sietse Bakker 79 views

Daphne Bokota, widely known as the Greek 'Mrs. Eurovision', is currently writing a book about her Eurovision Song Contest career, which lasted for 18 years and unexpectedly ended earlier this year.

The book will deal with the years Daphne Bokota was commentating on the Eurovision Song Contest for the Greek broadcaster ERT and organised the national selections between 1987 and, partly, 2005. The book will contain pictures never printed before, some interesting surprises and many backstage Eurovision Song Contest stories.

The book will be released in May 2006, a 'hot' period in Greece and Europe, since Athens will host the biggest European music event for the first time. It's unknown if the book will be published in English as well.

Earlier this year, Daphne Bokota was dismissed by ERT from all her Eurovision Song Contest duties, which were taken over by Alexandra Pascalidou. Media and song contest fans generally condemned ERT's decision.
