The reactions started last week when Christian circles called for a collection of signatures for his withdrawal, while unknown people threatened to set fire to RIK, which chose the song.

RIK made an announcement about the lyrics of “El Diablo” but the reactions continued. A man stormed the courtyard of the station to protest, while the metropolitan of Morphou Neophytos also spoke on the issue.

“Most Europeans today rule with euphoric, demonic powers. “First they were subjected to satanic worship and secret ceremonies and now, they want to subdue us insidiously and insidiously and show us the demon that it is something good and to love him as well”, said the metropolitan, among other things.

However, the Church of Cyprus also spoke in favor of “El Diablo”, which, with its announcement, asked to withdraw. “They prefaced our global ridicule by presenting the proclamation that we surrender ourselves to the devil,” the Holy Synod said in a statement. “The theme is not political, the theme is purely artistic for a big song contest. “Art must be free”, said among others, the director of the Press Office of the President of the Republic of Cyprus Viktoras Papadopoulos.

The case was presented in an extensive Guardian article, which was posted two days ago, while the CNN report also includes statements by the singer, Eleni Tsagrinou.

“El Diablo” is an allegorical song, for a woman who manages to get out of a toxic relationship and sends a message of strength. Music, however, unites us all, does not divide us! “My colleagues and I remain committed to our goal: to represent Cyprus worthily in the competition,” the singer told CNN in a statement given through the record company Panik Records.

“El Diablo” premiered on YouTube on February 27 and to date has exceeded 820,000 views.
