Tarkan Awards Show Update
Tarkan has made an appearance in the Turkish media today, with reports out revealing the winners of the major Turkish music society MÜ-YAP awards.
Although these figures are yet to be officially confirmed, an article in Gazeteport claims that at first instance the sales of Tarkan's 2007 album Metamorfoz - which went platinum with just two weeks of sales - has now taken the top diamond award this year for achieving the highest sales for an album in 2008 as well.
Other articles (as pictured left) write that to currently achieve diamond status in Turkey, an album needs to sell over 300,000 copies. If figures are correct, and as Tarkan Deluxe predicted last year, even though his album sales had been divided into two, this makes Tarkan one of the few Turkish artists to win two top industry sale awards for the same album - notching up well over three quarters of a million copies sold.
Gazeteport's article also writes that Tarkan will not be appearing to perform at the award ceremony, as first speculated in previous reports.
