A composer who once hit No.2 in the British classical chart with four girls band Bond and then got removed by the committee for classical music at the Chart Information Network, which assembles the list, now hits back making a parody of its own music.
Croat born author Tonci Huljic has got over 160,000 hits in only three days with his song Kekereke (Suck it, baby) sang by himself in the Croatian language. "People need to have fun in economic crisis like this. I make fun of my own music", commented Tonci Huljic.
Now he launches his own world music career backed by British promoter Mel Bush who in the past invented violine genius and beauty Vanessa Mae.
Crossover string quartet Bond who sold millions with Tonci Huljic's music, were dubbed as classical music's answer to the Spice Girls, but now Tonci Huljic goes with funny and entertaining world music on his own, hoping he won't be banned again or removed from the charts because his sings "suck it, baby" in Croatian and no one would understand it in the UK or elsewhere in the world.
"When I say it in the Croatian language most of the public around the globe won't get it. After all the song is about sweets. Nothing rude in it. Depends how people accept it. It is not my fault. They obviously find our video interesting. Especially because I made a parody of my composition Croatian Rhapsody that brought London based Croatian piano player Maksim Mrvica a lot of fame in China, Southern Korea and the rest of Far East", he says.
This week Tonci Huljic is to receive an award in Macedonia for his album of world music. The video for Kekereke can be seen here: http://youtu.be/2wR2Xuur_6c
