Back in Vienna, Moldova’s Eduard Romanyuta brought policewomen, leather, and a whole lot of fun to the Eurovision stage. He had the unfortunate luck of opening the first semi final, but still managed to come 11th — narrowly missing the final with his song “I Want Your Love”.
Thankfully fans are still giving Eduard their love many months later, as we saw in September during the Eurovision Live Concert in Setúbal, Portugal. Eduard turned up and turned out, delivering a high-energy reprise of his number. wiwiblogger Deban Aderemi caught up with him back in the hotel and learned that he’s pursuing music while simultaneously pursuing a PhD in economics. It’s not easy. “Every day you are traveling and traveling, but you still remember that you’ve got to work, you’ve got to read a lot and understand,” he says.
Funnily enough, we were in a Setúbal club during the event and fans went crazy when Eduard’s Eurovision entry came on. We were pleased and so was Mr Romanyuta: “When you hear a Eurovision song in the club it’s more powerful because this type of music in a club is not usual here.”
Finally, Eduard, always the gentleman, had a message for all of his fans across Europe and beyond: “I wish you to be loved, be free with your emotions, and do what you like.” We will!
