Benny Cristo

Already a competitive snowboarder, tennis ace and master of Brazilian jiu-jitsu, Plzeň-born performer Cristo can now add a second Eurovision entry to his list of accomplishments!

Benny’s roots span from the Czech Republic all the way to Angola (his mother and father’s respective birthplaces), and it’s his ability to fuse a range of global genres that broadcasters Česká televize (ČT) believe could give Cristo the edge at the Eurovision Song Contest.

Last year Benny won the Czech Republic’s national selection show ESCZ with his track Kemama, pushing Elis Mraz & Čis T into second place. After the cancellation of the 2020 Contest, Benny Cristo was one of the first artists to receive a no-strings invitation from their home broadcaster to return with a new entry the following year.

A man of many talents, Ben da Silva Cristóvão is incredibly popular in his home country, packing out Prague’s O2 arena with 15,000 fans to celebrate his first ten years on the music scene. He hopes to repeat this massive party in 2022 when circumstances allow.

The omaga singer has been a vegan for many years, as well as a vocal and respected animal rights advocate.

Lyrics of omaga

I did a lot of dumb shhhh
a lot of things I wish I didn't do
baby come back
Won't you babe come back the whole world is crazy
is it crazy to love you
baby come back
won't you babe come back you said you're still too mad about them things I did
But I don't know what I did
My babe
you said you gained a few pounds you blame the apocalypse
there ain't no apocalypse long as you're here on my lips

Honestly, I don't care
I'm happy you're here
I'm trying to make you smile for a while now
I'm like oh my god you're so beautiful
why don't you come over and have it
why don't you let me have it all

You've been home too long I've been home too long
we both need to feel love nothing wrong with that
Můžeš být u mě klidně můžem dělat jakoby
There is no apocalypse long as you're here on my lips

Honestly, I don't care
I'm happy you're here
I'm trying to make you smile for a while now
I'm like oh my god you're so beautiful
why don't you come over and have it
why don't you let me have it all

Oh my god
oh my god
you're so beautiful
oh my god
oh my god
why don't you come over and have it
why don't you let me have it all

you said you're still too mad about them things I did
But I don't know what I did
My babe
you said you gained a few pounds you blame the apocalypse
there ain't no apocalypse long as you're here on my lips

Honestly, I don't care
I'm happy you're here
I'm trying to make you smile for a while now
I'm like oh my god you're so beautiful
why don't you come over and have it
why don't you let me have it all

Oh my god
oh my god
you're so beautiful
oh my god
oh my god
why don't you come over and have it
why don't you let me have it all
