Sasha Project receives threats after announcement of a concert in Dagestan

The performance in Dagestan, scheduled for January 19, can be disrupted because of the statements voiced by "anti-fans of Egor Kreed", reports today Russian singer Sasha Project.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that Russian pop singer Egor Kreed, who announced a concert in Makhachkala, received through Instagram a large number of comments with threats and recommendations not to come to Dagestan. On September 9, 2018, the "Black Star Records", an organizer of concerts of Egor Kreed and rapper Doni in Dagestan, announced the cancellation of their performances and explained that by the unrest in the region and the desire not to risk the fans' safety.

Singer Sasha Project has been invited to take part in a concert in Dagestan, but her performance can be disrupted, reports today the "StarHit". The edition posts screenshots of threats that, according to the singer, she got several days ago.

"Anti-fans of Egor Kreed are threatening me with violence," said Sasha Project in her interview to the "StarHit".

The singer has also noted that she is confused and does not know what to do. She seriously fears for her life.

Let us remind you that apart from the concert of Egor Kreed, who faced threats, a number of other cultural events were also cancelled in Dagestan, including performances by popular performers, film screenings, and an anime festival.
