Igor Nikolaev played a certain role in the career of Andrei Gubin, more precisely, in its collapse. The singer admitted that he left the stage because of the insult that Pugacheva and Company inflicted on him, namely Igor Nikolaev, a member of the Star Factory Anton Zatsepin and composer Igor Nikolaev. The latter recorded the song “Only Gubin is shorter,” and the Primadonna approved it and hooting clapped her hands at one of the concerts. Sensitive Andrei took this as an insult and has not appeared on stage since.
A dozen years passed and Nikolaev decided to justify himself, saying that he did not want to hurt Gubin, and the song was not about him at all, but about Zatsepin. The title of the song speaks for itself though.
“In the song “Only Gubin is shorter” we are not talking about Andrey! We are talking about Anton Zatsepin, who does not complex that he is small in stature. But he has a great sense of love. Gubin and I came together to the star house, I love him very much! Andrei, you are a talented guy, I am waiting for your return to the stage, we can collab a joint song to put an end to this story, ”said Igor Nikolaev.
It is unlikely that Andrei will return to performances after that, now he also has health problems. By the way, Anton Zatsepin could not resist on the big stage either. According to Nikolaev, after the “Factory” the novice artist had prospects and the producer offered him to cooperate. But, the guy said that he sees himself as a rocker and he does not like the proposed pop repertoire. Having gone on an independent voyage, the boat did not succeed. Although Zatsepin sometimes performs in recreation centers and nightclubs and participates in musical programs, you cannot call him successful.
