Kral VMAs Gear Up for May

By Adelind Osmanlı reporting from Munich, Germany

Amidst rumours last month that Tarkan is set to make an appearance at Turkish music station Kral TV's 16th annual video and music awards ceremony on 17 May, the TV station has prepared a special promotional video it will air on its official site edited from its archives, which include Turkey's own megastar, Tarkan Deluxe can reveal.

Official sources still cannot confirm whether the artist will in fact be making an appearance at the major music station VMAs, and the official site to Tarkan's music company HITT - which is organising the event - still carries no update as to this, or any confirmation of an appearance by Tarkan at time of going to press.

Kral VMA Winners Past and Present

The 17 minute long clip includes award winners of the Kral VMAs past and present, including Tarkan accepting his award in person in 1998 for "Şımarık" (Ölürüm Sana, 1997), presenting Sertab Erener "Best Pop Female Artist" in 2000 and accepting his 2002 awards via satellite from New York.

Below is a shortened version of the aired video courtesy of Kral TV, showing Tarkan's moments with English subtitles provided by Tarkan Deluxe.

Rumours of a Tarkan appearance last year had surrounded the 15th Kral TV VMA event - one of the largest and reputable VMA ceremonies the Turkish music industry has - which sees a mix of categories elected by public and special jury vote to decide the year's most successful names in Turkish music.
