Set to air on October 16, at 7.00 p.m. (local Turkish time), the music video, sponsored by Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream, is aiming to reach a wider audience in a campaign to raise awareness about Turkey's fast disappearing nature and wildlife.

This will be Tarkan's first live appearance on a news show since 2007, when the artist appeared on TRT's main news slot to promote his end of year show for the broadcaster.

NTV Turkey is a Turkish nationwide television news channel. NTV was founded in 1996 and has partnered with MSNBC since May 2000.
