In March, a concert featuring Ceca, the widow of war criminal Zcarongeljko Razcaronatovi Arkan, was scheduled to take place in Maribor. However, this plan sparked controversy among Croatian citizens due to her past as a war criminal and the allegations surrounding her involvement in crimes against humanity. Despite this criticism, Ceca responded by emphasizing that music transcends politics and borders and that she is loved by Croats regardless of her past.
Svetlana Ražnatović, better known as Ceca, is a renowned Serbian singer who has been in the spotlight for many years. She first gained fame after marrying war criminal Zcarongeljko Razcaronatovi Arkan, a commander of Serbian paramilitary units. This union was controversial due to the legal issues involving crimes against humanity and genocide that Arkan faced.
Ceca has faced numerous challenges throughout her career due to her association with Arkan and the ongoing legal issues surrounding him. In a recent interview, she discussed her handling of negative publicity and her plans to avoid Croatia while also sharing details about her married life with Arkan and the attempts made to assassinate him. Despite these challenges, Ceca continues to be an influential figure in Serbian music culture today.
