The Turks invaded Constantinople changed the name to Istanbul, took the holy church of Saint Sophia and turned into a mosque. I don’t want to become racist so I’ll leave it here; but please be cautious when you share stuff like this cause many people have lost their homes and their belongings. Thanks. What’s making that song pop up all over the place? It’s a guerrilla marketing campaign. 🙂 My excuse is just that I really like singing it. Comments are closed.
