The Turkish singer and media personality Ayşe Özyılmazel, who is the daughter of the 1982 Turkish Eurovision Song Contest representative Neco, has covered her father’s Eurovision entry Hani as a tribute to his fifty years in showbizness.

Hani, which translates as Where, finished in fifteenth place in the Grand Final of the 1982 Eurovision Song Contest, amassing a total of twenty points.  The contest of that year, which was held in Harrogate, United Kingdom, and was contested by eighteen countries, was won by Germany’s Nicole with her song Ein bißchen frieden.

Neco makes an appearance in the video for Ayşe’s version of Hani, which can be seen here.

Turkey last entered the Eurovision Song Contest in 2012, finishing in seventh place in the Grand Final of that year with Can Bonomo and Love Me Back.  Debuting in 1975, with a total of thirty-four participations to date, Turkey’s best result came in 2003, when Sertab Erener won with Every Way That I Can.
