Pop singer: Ikke Hüftgold against ban of “L’amour toujours”

The song “L’amour toujours” is often used with different lyrics for racist slogans. This is why the hit should not be played at some festivals. Ikke Hüftgold has a different opinion.

Despite racist incidents, Ballermann star Ikke Hüftgold is against a ban on the party hit “L’amour toujours” by Gigi D’Agostino. “You have to kick the people in the ass who use the song to shout right-wing slogans. The legislator has to get involved,” the 47-year-old told the “Westdeutsche Allgemeine Zeitung”. “But under no circumstances should a song like that be banned. Or DJs be punished for playing a ‘Nazi song’. No, it’s not a Nazi song!”

A video recently caused outrage across the country. In it, numerous young people at a party on Sylt shouted the racist slogans “Foreigners out” and “Germany for the Germans” to the song by Gigi D’Agostino. Numerous other incidents have since been reported. The song is therefore not to be played at some folk festivals.

Hüftgold, whose real name is Matthias Distel, made headlines two years ago with criticism of the song “Layla,” which he produced. The song by DJ Robin & Schürze was repeatedly criticized as sexist and deliberately not played in many places, but eventually became the summer hit of 2022. At the time, Hüftgold warned of the danger of censorship.

He now has an equally clear opinion on “L’amour toujours”: “It’s Nazis, wannabe Nazis, complete idiots who are jumping on this bandwagon,” he said. “If we carry on like this, the next song to be banned will be one by Roland Kaiser or Ikke Hüftgold or Udo Lindenberg.”
