Turkish pop star Tarkan thrilled his Bulgarian fans by coming to Sofia. He attended the opening ceremony of the first Opet Aygaz gas station in Bulgaria.

Tarkan became world renowned following his "Simarik" (Spoiled) song. French media even called him "The Prince of the Bosphorus".

The song with the kiss achieved the highest rankings in the international charts, although it's not entirely new. In Turkey, already two years ago, "Simarik" was played country-wide through the loud speakers.

In his pieces that are often based on traditional Turkish melodies, Tarkan combines oriental sounds with catchy western pop rhythms.
