ROME: An Italian-Egyptian vocalist has won a long-running music challenge that expects to commend Italian tune.
Alessandro Mahmoud, who performs with the stage name Mahmood, triumphed at the Sanremo music celebration late Saturday with his version of “Soldi” (“Money”).
The 26-year-old’s triumphant tune has a cadenced beat regularly heard in North African music.
Watchers at home, a specialist board and columnists vote in favour of the victor of the five-day yearly celebration. The general population input means 50 percent of contenders’ scores.
Italy’s enemy of vagrant inside clergyman, Matteo Salvini, tweeted that he’d have picked Ultimo, the songfest’s assumed top choice.
The Milan-conceived Mahmoud has an Italian mother and an Egyptian dad. He said early Sunday: “I’m an Italian person, 100 percent.”
He will speak to Italy at the current year’s Eurovision melody challenge.
