Šeki Turković

Šućro "Šeki" Turković (Serbian Cyrillic: Шућро "Шеки" Турковић; born 27 November 1953) is a Serbian pop-folk singer, popular in the former Yugoslavia. He was born in Sjenica in southwestern Serbia.[1] Šućro performs under the stage name Šeki. He and his family moved to Novi Pazar in 1973. In 1976, Šeki and his cousin Munid moved to Belgrade. A short time after Šeki moved to Belgrade, he and his cousin went around to bars and clubs and started to sing. The manager at one of the clubs heard him sing and asked him "Where do you sing?" "Nowhere!" replied Šeki. The manager soon after offered Šeki an audition and a chance to sing, which turned into his life career.[2] Šeki served his mandatory Yugoslav People's Army military service, first in Varaždin, then later on in Podravska Slatina, Croatia.
