The singers are linked by long-term friendship.
Philip Kirkorov and Nikolai Baskov regularly tease each other on different programs, demonstrating their superiority. Today Nikolai is celebrating his 44th birthday. Despite the occasional misunderstanding, Philip Kirkorov could not ignore such an event and touchingly congratulated his colleague on the holiday by publishing a video clip on his microblog on Instagram.
“My friend @nikolaibaskov, happy birthday! Rejoice every day, enjoy the little things, strive for your dreams and always give a holiday! Be free in thoughts, actions, feelings. Basically, how you live ... I value our friendship. I always consider you not just a friend, but a younger brother. I love you very much. You are not alone. And thanks to your wonderful mother Elena Nikolaevna for you. May God grant her health and long summers! Live with your soul, dream with your heart, smile at your thoughts. Let life be a beautiful song. Hurray, hurray, hurray! " - wrote Philip (spelling and punctuation of the author are given without changes. - Prim. row.).

It is worth noting that the friendship between Philip and Nicholas has lasted for more than a year. Two years ago it became known that the artists began to communicate in Yalta, when they rode on the sea, tied to a boat on one "cheesecake". According to the stars, it was there that they swore to each other "to carry on their friendship to the last breath."
Also Kirkorov and Baskov tried to do joint work. So, they recorded the song "Ibiza" and shot a video for this track. The video was created by Alexander Gudkov, who is famous for his extraordinary ideas. However, not all fans of the stars appreciated this work. Negative comments were poured about Nikolai and Philip, and some Internet users even suggested depriving Kirkorov and Baskov of the title of People's Artist of Russia. After such comments, the artists had to publish another clip in which they publicly asked for forgiveness for Ibiza. They did it in an original way - they recorded a parody of Kanye West's music video and Lil Pampa "I love it".

Recall that Philip Kirkorov and Nikolai Baskov have recently been trying to be closer to young people. Kirkorov records tracks with popular rappers - an example of this is a joint song and a video for it with David Manukyan. Basque keeps up with his colleague - he released a hit with a famous blogger on TikTok Daney Milokhin...
We add that despite the new wave of popularity, Kirkorov nevertheless decided to devote less time to the stage and more to his children - Martin and Alla Victoria. According to the artist, during the coronavirus pandemic, he understood a lot and decided that he was ready to sacrifice work in order to spend time with the kids. Kirkorov stressed that over the past eight years he has become a "Sunday" dad for children.
Alla-Victoria was born in 2011, and her brother - Martin - a year later. Both babies were born to Kirkorov by a surrogate mother. The day of the guys is scheduled literally by the minute, because the artist is attentive to the education of his children and invests in them the maximum for the benefit of their future. Kirkorov also spoke about the possibility of children becoming artists. He emphasized that he would definitely help Martin and Alla Victoria, but only if he sees talent in them.
