“Somebody Has Played A Heavy Joke”
Orhan Gencebay, the beloved name of Turkish arabesque music, made a statement on the allegations that Orhan Gencebay died.
Gencebay used the following expressions in his statement:
“Thank God, we are fine. Our time has not expired yet, God knows. We are someone who surrenders to our Lord. Whatever He says happens. Thank God. We are doing very well. I send my sincerest love and greetings to those who are worried, may they be happy. Someone must have made such a joke. A heavy joke. But we’ve been through this 15-20 times in our lifetime, we’re used to it. We’ve been through this before, these things happen. We are in good health now. I send my sincerest love and greetings to all my heart friends, my dearest ones. May they be well, Orhan Baba is fine.”
