Ceca, the widow of war criminal Zcarongeljko Razcaronatovi Arkan, is set to have a concert in Maribor in March. However, several posters promoting the event were recently torn down in Lanište and Dubrava, sparking controversy among citizens. The destruction of these posters has caused outrage and many are questioning why Ceca would be allowed to perform in Croatia.
In response to the criticism, Ceca has stated that she believes music transcends politics and borders. She also emphasized that she is adored by Croats and that she is unshaken by extreme minority attacks. Despite facing numerous challenges and controversies throughout her career, including accusations of crimes against humanity and genocide against Bosniaks, Ceca remains committed to sharing her music with the world.
Svetlana Račević, better known as Ceca, was born in 1973 in Prokuplje, Serbia. She quickly gained recognition as one of the most famous Serbian singers of all time after marrying war criminal Zcarongeljko Razcaronatovi Arkan, the commander of Serbian paramilitary units. Following legal issues involving crimes of genocide against Bosniaks, crimes against humanity, and grave violations of the Geneva Convention, Ceca served sentences and faced a number of challenges and controversies throughout her career.
