Attack Against Eleni Foureira

Eleni Foureira (participant in the 2010 Greek national final along with Manos Pyrovolakis) is receiveing a personal attack by the Greek media. With both parents been Greek (from Ioannina and Athens) her descent is from Mexico. This is what she told to STAR Channel’s Axizei na to Zeis with Tatiana Stefanidou.
There are many though who claim that she is descent from Albania. Those rumors also claim that recently Eleni Foureira asked from the Greek authorities to receive the Greek citizenship. There is no confirmation or denial of the info above.
Eleni Foureira responded that she is not interested to such stories and that she is so busy with her projects having no time even to laugh with them. Why this story is breaking out now? Because two days ago ERT confirmed Eurovision 2011 participation and the broadcaster already approached Universal record label and discussed the name of Eleni for the 2011 Greek national final.

  1. She is Albanian, in fact she is Greek Minority from Albania, but even the Greek Minorities in Albania are scared of proper Greece, imagine the Albanians. Grow up people.

  2. I’m am shocked at the stories the Greek public is obsessed with, similar to this one concerning an artists’ origin. No wonder there are so many Europeans immigrants in the US, escaping this backward mentality of Southeast Europe. European nations need to mature and embrace diversity…this debate is surreal and shows the lack of civility among the member sof the EU. The artists who want to make it should come to the United States, they are always welcome here, regardles sof whether the color the Greeks have 🙂

  3. She is ALBANIAN, not a minority, but says so to (hopefully) be accepted in Greece. Her mom may be a Vlach but her dad is 100% Albanian. Vlachs are Romanian /Dacian so not Greek.

    Pirro Dhima is 100% Albanian too

  4. I feel pity for her coz a person who denies his own Origine seems to be loosing his path! Being Albanian means being part of a population with a big heart and with a bright history!! Such a shame for the ones dont know it.

  5. stop lying koka she is 100%Albanian and what a grek minority u mean Albanian minority like Cams and Arvanites in greece!!!

  6. First of all to the people who are saying she is Albanian…come on she doesn’t even look Albanian!!!! And just because her father is from ioannina Greece that doesn’t make him or her Albanian! All Albanians come to America and they are ashamed to say we’re they are from and they claim there Greek from ioannina….

  7. My dad grew up with Eleni’s mom in Fier, Albania. Her father is 100% albanian too. She is 100% Albanian. She has no mexican or greek descent. They live in Athens and she changed her first and last name to fit into the greek society since she wanted to become a singer. It’s a shame that she has to hide her origin but in a country where Albanians aren’t really accepted, I don’t really blame her.
