Kosovo pop star Genta Ismajli has amassed more than 25 million views on You Tube, has more than 26,000 fans on her Facebook page and has performed 300-plus concerts around the globe.
The bilingual Ismajli, 25, recently visited her family in Plainfield before meeting with New York producers and flying back to Kosovo where she will be a part of Albania’s “Dancing with the Stars.” She also plans to complete three more music videos.
To meet her ambitious goal, Ismajli has already recorded four songs in English. She looks forward to scheduling more concerts in both Europe and the United States.
“I have reached the top in my parent’s native country and I’m ready to take the next step and share my talent with the world,” Ismajli said. “I just need a push.”
“They say fame has not changed me at all,” Ismajli said. “My personality is the same, and they really appreciate that.”
Her recordings to date are “Mos me shiko” (“Don’t look at me,” 2004), “Me e forta jam une” (“I am the strongest, 2005), “Posesiv” (“Possessive,” 2006) and “Zero,” 2008.
