Pop star singer Despina Vandi lashes out at colleague Notis Sfakianakis over comments supporting Golden Dawn

Best-selling Greek pop singer Despina Vandi has announced that she will be breaking off her collaboration with her colleague Notis Sfakianakis due to recent remarks made by the controversial artist in support of the neofascist Golden Dawn party.

In a message posted on her Facebook page on Friday, Vandi said an upcoming joint appearance in Athens was off “because the things that divide us are more than those that bring us together.”

“My parents were migrants,” said Vandi, causing a furor on social media.

In comments made on television on Thursday, Sfakianakis, who has in the past claimed that humans were created by aliens, praised Golden Dawn and the 1967-1974 military dictatorship, and called PASOK leader and government Deputy Prime Minister Evangelos Venizelos a “pig.”
