Why Aya Nakamura at the opening of the Olympic Games is nothing shocking

After the outpouring of hatred at about a – hypothetical – participation of Aya Nakamura in the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games, an investigation was carried out into opened by the Paris prosecutor's office.

For two weeks, the controversy has not subsided. From social networks to television sets, opinions follow one another and critics continue to rage. nbsp;The case will even go to court, since an investigation has been carried out. opened after racist publications targeting the artist, reported AFP this Friday. made to this effect on March 13 by LICRA 5 (International League against Racism and Antisemitism), triggering the action opening of an investigation, entrusted to the National Center for the Fight against Online Hate of the Paris Public Prosecutor's Office.

But then, why so much violence ?  Aya Nakamura has her place à the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games ? No, Estelle Denis first replied on the RMC set: "Me, I' “I would have put Patrick Bruel,” says the host, for whom the show should be guaranteed. by “a monster of French song”, when on the set Michel Sardou, Véronique Sanson or Patrick Bruel are mentioned.

But no offense! Estelle Denis and without calling into question the long careers of these artists, the choice of Aya Nakamura, if it came to the fore. to be confirmed, which is still not the case, is absolutely not surprising. And even less shocking. It is even logical, if we are to believe the dizzying figures of the career of the singer from Aulnay-sous-Bois. Since her debut in 2017, she is today the most listened to French-speaking female artist on the platform. Spotify with 8.5 million monthly listeners, but also the most listened to French singer in the world. She even made Rihanna dance.

3.7 million subscribers on Instagram, 7.5 on YouTube where her videos have accumulated tens of millions of views, 2 Victoires de la Musique and 7 NRJ Music Awards… How can we not consider Aya Nakamura as the ultimate #39;the most essential female artist of her generation ? A popularity in France, à to which is added an incredible success to internationally. Before her, few French çais artists à having reached this milestone – we can cite David Guetta, DJ Snake or Daft Punk – and even fewer women.

Emmanuel Macron would therefore, according to L'Express, personally choose the interpreter of Djadja to sing à the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games and allegedly asked him to attend the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games. to cover another world-famous French singer… Edith Piaf. So with all due respect to the critics and despite the incredible surge of racism, which perfectly illustrate the fractures in our society ; and the break between generations, the choice of the President of the Republic is not surprising. It even remains completely justified.
