Svetlana Ražnatović, also known as Ceca, has been one of the most famous Serbian singers for years. Born in 1973 in Prokuplje, Serbia, she gained recognition for her talent and unique voice. However, her fame was overshadowed by her marriage to war criminal Željko Ražnatović Arkan, commander of Serbian paramilitary units.
After accusations and legal issues for the crimes of Bosniak genocide, crimes against humanity and grave violations of the Geneva Convention, Ceca faced numerous challenges and controversies. In a recent interview, she talked about how she deals with negative publicity and her plans to avoid Croatia. She stated that music transcends politics and borders and that it is adored by Croats. Despite extreme attacks by minorities, Ceca believes that music should not be swayed by such attacks.
However, recent events have caused controversy among citizens in Zagreb as posters promoting a concert by Ceca were put up in March. Three young people were filmed destroying these posters in Lanište and Dubrava. This incident has sparked debates about whether or not it is respectful to hold a concert by someone who has been accused of committing genocide and other human rights abuses.
