The video
has accumulated many dislikes and negative comments, including negative comments from the Russian population as well.

Keta Topuria is not the only Georgian singer who performs in the video. Another Russian-based Georgian singer, Grigory Lepsveridze, known as Grigory Leps also participated in the video.

Grigory Leps was born Grigory Lepsveridze in the city of Sochi, Russian SFSR in an ethnically Georgian family.

As a reminder, a few days ago Keta Topuria called on her fans to participate in upcoming presidential elections in Russia, what was followed by negative reactions from Georgian society. As a result, Georgian singer was strictly criticized by Georgian social media users.

As Keta explained later, she just addressed people to participate in elections and not to support one particular candidate.

Keta Topuria has been involved in music industry since childhood. In 1998, she graduated from Gogi Sudradze Music School in Tbilisi, and in 2003, graduated music school with a specialty in vocals. Also in 2003, Topuria was accepted into the State University of Georgia psychology department, but declined after being selected to replace Polina Griffith in the popular Russian group A-Studio and moved to Moscow.
